Provilio WordPress Theme for Creative Minds
Provilio WordPress Portfolio Themes for Creative Minds

The idea behind Provolio, craft the ultimate WordPress portfolio theme experience. The beautiful design, paired with powerful theme options and a drag-and-drop page builder makes it the most valuable WordPress theme on the market.

There’s a lot to like about Provolio, a portfolio theme for WordPress sites that value creativity and functionality in equal measure.  Provolio is a really nice looking theme, the layouts are clear and well made and for building an online gallery, it really is tough to top this theme.  Provolio has parallax layouts, a ton of variety in image placement, size and shape, there are multiple contact pages, multiple blog types, service pages and a lot more.

Visual Composer and Slider Revolution are included, as is Essential Grid.  The first two, I really don’t enjoy, but Essential Grid is fine.  There’s one click demo data import, responsive and fluid design and tons of theme options to choose from.  Provolio is a WooCommerce WordPress theme too.

Created by an Elite Author on ThemeForest, Provolio has sold over 150 times, which really isn’t a ton.  That’s after around nine months on the market.  The rating isn’t sparkling either at 3.9 overall.

Ruh roh.

Unfortunately I have to tell this theme does not work properly. The Grid composer plug-in does not work, the support is incredibly slow and not helpful at all. Even they don’t seem able to make it work. I am having a very bad experience. I would not recommend to buy it.

Looks like we’ve got a critic!

And there are plenty of issues with Visual Composer not updating properly, which is common and one of the many reasons we don’t recommend a lot of Visual Composer based themes.  Another recent issue.

Hi. (sorry for my English) I installed the theme but does not work the visual layout designer. I see that is not updated and may not work with the latest version of WordPress 4.5.2. And your theme? Does it works with this update of wordpres? Please help

At least the developer DeTheme, gets back to folks quickly, which is better than some people.  Anyway, buyer beware, there are issues with this theme, but damn, does it look nice!

Folks have been asking us to add samples of websites using these themes as we review them and I think that’s a fantastic idea, so here’s a site called Gallery No. 9 and how they use Provolio.

Provolio Theme Demo site galleryno9.com

Gallery No. 9 creates intuitive, user-centered digital solutions and outstanding brand and identity collateral and they have a blast while doing it.

Branding and Identity, IX/UX design.  When folks who are into that kind of stuff choose your WP theme, that’s a great sign.  (Even if they are from Kansas City.)  If you want more great WordPress agency themes, try this collection.

This website is called Cuéllar Cultural.

www.edadesdelhombrecuellar.com-Las Edades del Hombre en Cuellar

The Ages of Man have become a reference for restoration in Castilla y León.  The foundation also takes into account the scientific research of cultural works, which is carried out to obtain a greater knowledge of the heritage and to give a scientific approach to each of the exhibitions.

So, that’s a hint of a taste of a look at what Provolio does for the websites that use it.  It really does have a nice style, it’s well organized, it’s simple to use and pretty much bug free, though the use of Visual Composer is troubling.

Alpina royalwpthemes.com

Simple and sort of dated looking, this theme is called Alpina.  I’ve removed it from all collections because I really don’t recommend it anymore, but I’m leaving this review here so I don’t get dinged by Google.  Looking for an actually nice looking corporate style theme?  Check out this collection.

The main advantage of this theme is fully customizable theme colors, from theme options panel!  Also, the content of the main page is a custom, and is formed using large amount of theme shortcodes (examples of the main pages in the documentation) that allows you to adapt the theme for yourself and make it completely unique!  In the theme a lot of settings, which you can easily customize the theme, as you need, also documentation and support attached!

Welp, we’ll be back again soon for more good stuff.  Until then, so long.
