Ithaca WordPress Gaming Magazine Theme

Ithaca WordPress Gaming Magazine Themes

What’s the best WordPress gaming theme around?  Well, CSSIgniter has a fine looking entry into the sweepstakes, it’s called Ithaca.  Ithaca is all about gamers and gaming.  If you’re blogging about games, I think this theme could be the perfect frame for blog posts, game play videos, tutorials and other information.  Gamers are hungry for news about upcoming releases, as well as tips, walkthroughs and tricks about their favorite games that have already been released.  If you’ve got a passion for games, why not share it with as wide an audience as you can?  With Itahca, you absolutely can.  Ithaca has a unique layout, a reviews content type, powerful options to finetune your site, custom widgets, a highly varied color scheme and it’s SEO optimized for fast page load times and great SERP placement.

Ithaca is a fantastic looking, incredibly well made WordPress gaming theme that could be an excellent selection for for video gaming bloggers who are searching for that bold type of style that actually brings interest to your reader’s experience on your website. You can change out the background to anything you want to, so depending on the style of game or what is popular at the time, perhaps you have an image of Mass Effect 4 for a little while, then Madden 2017, Pokemon Go or whatever else is trending at the moment. (Halo 3 confirmed?) The fully customizable home page allows you to change individual content areas of the page so a fresh feel is retained by the theme, week after week, month after month, year after year. You’ve got the power of the sun in the palm of your hand, so go out there and create whatever you need with Ithaca.  The Ithaca theme is a strong option for gaming bloggers seeking a bold theme with tons of fantastic features.

Now, the bad news, it would appear that Ithaca has been deprecated and is no longer for sale on CSS Igniter.  No worries though, there are still plenty of awesome themes out there in the world.  Well, technically it’s still for sale and they’ll support it in a limited manner until November 17th, 2018, but it’s not going to be updated again.  Too bad, so sad.

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…

Cascade is a minimalistic personal vCard WordPress Theme based on colorful vertical menu tabs. Tabs are presenting content of the pages. Each page is a single tab.  The Theme comes loaded with dark and light skin, possibility to add unlimited number of tabs, 8 predefined tab colors and 10 predefined tab icons to choose from, 20 predefined page backgrounds and 10 predefined social icons. There is also possibility to define custom tab background image. The Theme is fully customizable with build-in lightbox, google map shortcode, working contact form, latest tweets widget etc.

Zwin Personal vCard Template for WordPress
Zwin Personal vCard Template for WordPress

This Zwin theme is a wonderful way for designers and creatives of all sorts to create their own personal portfolio or CV showcase, with tons of social media integration, a really nice learning curve and tons of features, you’ll be running your new CV site in no time flat.

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.
