Liwo Generic Business Theme for WordPress
Visual Composer WordPress Themes

Liwo is a Beautiful, Multipurpose WordPress Theme with a Front-End Page Builder.  That page builder is Live Composer which is definitely not Visual Composer, which is a very good thing.

Liwo is a fairly well received drag and drop theme business for WordPress, meant to be an all around solution for all kinds of businesses, it’s flexible and has enough features tp keep most folks pretty happy.

Liwo is a 100% Responsive WordPress Theme that’s simple, clean and professional. It is Unique, has awesome slideshows, unique color variations. Liwo offers an easy-to-customize and fully featured design. This theme suitable for company, business, blog and portfolio sites, though you don’t need to feel limited at all. Create Outstanding Website or Blog in Minutes!  Liwo works together with Live Composer, an amazing layout builder with video support!

What I’m seeing is an incredibly generic looking WordPress business website.  It’s got ‘meh’ written all over it.  The advertising copy says ‘unique design’ but this is almost uniquely…not unique.  This looks like literally every other business site on the market.  So what does it do to separate itself from the rest of the herd?  I’ll try to find out.

What kind of features do you get with Liwo?  Well, there’s a page builder plugin called Live Composer that helps you build pages in the front end, it’s fast and pretty simple to use.  Liwo is responsive and mobile friendly, built on the Redux framework, so it’s 100% GPL.  The installation is fast and user-friendly, mega-menu is supported, you can add custom backgrounds and more.  With multiple pre-made layouts, you can choose one that’s ready to go or construct your own for even more flexibility.  Liwo is translation ready with WPML support, there are tons of advanced blog options and more.

Here are some examples of Liwo in action out in the wild internet.

First up, the Richmond African American Scholarship Fund, which has created a really nice looking design with Liwo.  They didn’t stray too far from the basic design, but they did a lot to make it look less…boring I guess?  Maybe it’s about the images, the colors, some of the layouts, it just looks more interesting to me.  See for yourself.

Helping Students Reach Their Full Potential, the Richmond African American Scholarship Fund has been serving local students since 2003. I think we can all get behind that.

This one is called Rework-Inc, they’re a business consultant and analyst company.  Sort of like the Bobs on Office Space.

If you are considering a business analyst consultant, you might be wondering how exactly does the business analyst create value for my organization? Who knows?!

Hey, rework.inc, if you’re reading this, you may want to get rid of that little bug in your theme where the theme developer lets you pick between demo styles.  Probably not great for the live site, na’am sayin?

Rework this part of the theme

And bad mistakes, I’ve made a few…

Then there’s the site wattsnew.org, where they “provide the most reliable and efficient solar solutions at the most reasonable prices.”  Makes a lot of sense.

Watt's New baby

Wattsnew’s mission is to provide the most reliable and efficient solar solutions at the most reasonable prices. Sounds very reasonable to me.

Okay, we’ve seen enough, Liwo is a nice little theme, it appears to be flexible enough to work for a wide array of sites, but it just doesn’t have that ‘wow’ factor for me.  Now, that’s not to say that a theme that’s just sort of ‘boring’ is a bad theme.  Take our Quartz theme for instance, it’s a lot like a lot of other themes around, but it loads up lightning fast, it looks great and it’s flexible as hell.  There’s nothing wrong with a theme that can do all of that.

So, a soft recommend for us.  Let us know what you think in the comments below and we’ll be back soon with more great themes.
