Foundry WordPress Theme – The Last Theme You'll Need To Buy

This theme is called Foundry, it’s a flat and responsive Bootstrap theme that we first reviewed over a year ago, so we decided to take another look at it.  First, here are some of the various demo thumbnails to get an idea of the different possible looks and styles Foundry has to offer.

Foundry WordPress Theme – The Last Theme You'll Need To Buy(1)

Flexible structure with a powerful framework are the keys to the Foundry WordPress theme’s success, and Tommus Rhodus really delivers with this one. Combine these two essential website building characteristics with a huge number of customization options and an intrinsically high-style and modern aesthetic and you cannot go wrong when it comes to building professional sites. Just as precious metals are forged in a real world foundry, this WP theme offers the chance and ability to forge true internet gold. The theme is modular in design so every content block and elements can be placed precisely where it will give the greatest benefit. It only takes a few minutes of your time to construct a working website with considerable style and functionality. No matter what layout you choose, the flexible and current coding provides fast loading pages that will not eat up your bandwidth.

Now, what does Tommus Rhodus have to say about Foundry, the theme with over 3500 downloads and a sparkling 4.91 rating on ThemeForest?

Foundry is a versatile, high-performance WordPress Theme boasting an extensive array of styled elements for all occasions using clean, semantic markup and well-structured CSS and LESS that developers love, alongside ease of use and quick page building that clients adore. Foundry will feel right at home on any business website, and excels in portfolio and personal website applications.

Create engaging and alluring landing pages that build trust and confidence through the use of consistent and original design elements.

What you see is exactly what you get… Build in real-time using a vast array of meticulously designed blocks in the outrageously popular Visual Composer Page Builder. Quickly mock up ideas and experiment with layouts in real-time, then save directly in your page with no junk code and no inline style. Choose from a beautiful header and footer for your entire site, or use a different one for each page, your choice. Build one-page sites by easily linking your nav items to sections on the page! Light and dark skins – hit the lights on any section to give your site a different feel with the flick of a switch. Smooth parallax is just one click away – switch parallax on in any section that has an image background.

Because the Foundry WordPress theme is made on Twitter’s amazing Bootstrap framework, every single page can be structurally different and still retain its complete responsiveness for easy viewing on everything the from the largest desktop monitor to the smallest tablet or cell phone. High definition graphics and video will have no problem displaying perfectly on this retina-ready theme. Without complicated processes or code knowledge, your business can forge ahead with the Foundry WP theme.

So, that’s that.  What do you think?  Overall, this one still gets a big thumbs up from me, it’s a really great theme and a strong value at $59, considering all you get for that price.

High Grove

Lively Green has made a very popular theme for restaurants and coffee shops and this is it, HG Restaurant.

This is High Grove Restaurant, from Lively Green, with just about 1000 downloads so far and a somewhat low rating of 3.72 stars, it’s a mixed bag for crafting a winning restaurant website.  But that’s okay, a high rating isn’t everything, but it does help.  Let’s have a look at the introduction by LivelyGreen.

Our theme is designed to be simple to use, intuitive and powerful, and most importantly business orientated. Packed with everything you need to launch your restaurant site in 5 easy steps! Attractive board of events, modern looking menus, customizable table reservation, and all-purpose Revolution Slider are just a few of many features and plugins bundled in – all within a single integrated interface.  Simply perfect for you restaurant, bakery, coffee shop or winery!

I like the simple, clean design of High Grove, it’s got an attractive layout, I’d have to say.  They say you don’t need to just capture somebody’s attention, you have to maintain it.  That’s what High Grove aims to do and I think it succeeds.  High Grove is certainly a theme where you’ll need a great looking set of images, so if you don’t have your own photographer, you’ll need to go somewhere like iStockPhoto to get some high quality images.

Okay, hold your nose ’cause here goes the cold water. This theme isn’t well supported anymore.  Over a year of questions remain unanswered on ThemeForest’s comments section.

Here’s a fun exchange.

Hi, I bought this template, but the Slider revolution plugin is missing. Without this plugin, the website doesnt look like at all to the demo. Please can you answer me please and help me resolving this problem quickly, I’ts kind of urgent.

@florie32 Too bad for you bro, Theme author haven’t update this theme since last year. Also They dont response anymore maybe they abandoned this theme

xhellbornx

@xhellbornx Yeah I’m seing that too late. Anyway, I do not recommend this template, it is very complicated to use. Thankfully I know a little how to code, but it’s not made for novices.

By fun, I mean depressing as hell.  It sucks to buy a theme and not get support for it.

Well, on to the next schmoe who flows…

Zwin is for creative people who want to share their blog, portfolio, resumé and personal profile in one place.  Zwin is professional as can be, it’s a WordPress resumé template with a style that’s somewhere in between minimalist and full on material design.  The colors can be switched up easily and that helps make your site look different from anybody else’s site.  Now, Zwin offers full social media engagemend, which is so important these days.  You can choose to just add the major social icons, things like Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn, or you can go nuts with social media links to places like Dribbble, Vimeo, Instagram and more.

What does the developer have to say about this wildly popular vCard theme that boasts over 2000 downloads and more coming every day?

It’s simple! Just download and install in a few minutes, you can show your online card to your friend, customer or employer in an interview by phone or tablet. Because Zwin is a responsive wordpress theme, you can view your website on pc as well as handheld devices. You can also link to your social profiles, display your portfolio in many media format such as image, youtube video, flash…. From the back-end, you can choose skin for your website. Zwin supports 5 unique color skins (Yellow, Red, Green, Blue and Purple).

I love the sound of that.

I should note that while Zwin is wildly popular, the reviews have been mixed at best.  It gets only a 3.78 star rating out of 5, so there are a lot more highly rated vCard themes around.  In fact, it would appear that the developer has abandoned this theme to the scrapheap.

Listen to this:

The theme doesn’t work with encrypted WordPress websites and crashes your whole installation! I would not suggest to buy it as in addition the support doesn’t help you very good with occurring problems.

timobeuhler

Not ideal.  Oh, this is priceless.

I’m interested in purchasing this theme. It hasn’t been updated in a while though and it seems the author has abandoned it months ago. Their support system also doesn’t seem to work properly. A little worried here .. any advice? I’m just gonna swing it and purchase the theme. At least i have some expectations, even if low.

saudbh

Haha, good luck buddy, I hope it worked out for you okay.

So, I guess I’m not going to recommend this theme anymore.  Shame, it looks nice.
