For promoting single items, like SaaS, for highlighting blog stories or articles, Melbourne is a great pick.  Choose from the default slider, a creative slider, still frame image background, video background optional, even a masonry grid portfolio, which is nice.

I love the design of the services page, the creative team biographies and the default blog is really eye catching.  Masonry blogs and contact pages, well those just help to add to the mix, making Melbourne a really flexible and strong WordPress theme.  The typography is lovely and simple to adjust if you find one of the fonts isn’t exactly what you want.  Social networks are a snap to set up too and if you really want to get the most out of your social networking efforts, I recommend this plugin, Social Network Auto Poster.  It’s free to use and super powerful, allowing you to automatically post to multiple social networks as you post to your blog.  Cool!

Willow, Full Featured WordPress Video Background Theme

Willow WordPress Business Theme

Willow is one of my favorite themes from one of my favorite theme makers on all of ThemeForest, SoloPine.  SoloPine is wildly popular and their Willow theme is among their best, with 3400 downloads and an excellent 4.73 sta rating on ThemeForest.

Here’s how they introduce their full featured video portfolio theme to the world.

Solo Pine has packed Willow so full of features, it’ll make your head spin.  This theme is parallax, with easy to manage full width parallax sections that help add depth to your pages and posts.  CSS3 animations keep things fresh, while you change and edit all layouts to perfectly fit your site’s style and your company or personal brand.  SEO friendly, WPML ready, Willow is packed with WordPress goodness.  I personally love the full screen video background, the great support from setup to trouble shooting to customization.  Solo Pine really goes the extra mile.

Maybe this isn’t the Visual Composer theme you had in mind.  In that case, check out these WordPress Page Builder Themes.  Or there’s always Tailor, a free open source page builder plugin, or ThemeFuse’s Unyson Framework.  Whatever you choose, there are a lot of great things to be said for a drag-n-drop page builder.

Mix, WordPress Music, Radio Station and Band Theme

http://themeit.com/best-wordpress-band-themes/
Mix is a theme from Istanbulls, but I’m not sure you even need to know that anymore, since the theme has been pulled from ThemeForest.

Well, it looks like ThemeForest has finally pulled the plug on the Mix WordPress theme, so it’s no longer available on ThemeForest.  Never fear though, you’re looking for a good looking music theme?  We’ve got you covered in this collection.  For themes more specific to bands, try this.  We’ll leave the original review here for you to peruse, just in case you were wondering what we had to say about Mix.  It did seem like a solid theme, so I wonder why they pulled it?  Wow, this is weird.  Looking into this, they’ve actually pulled all of the themes created by Istanbulls.  Weird.

Istanbulls is an elite developer on ThemeForest, so I knew when I saw that they had another new music theme for sale, I had to review it.  That’s what Istanbulls is known for, great looking, very functional WordPress themes for musicians, bands, DJs and others in the music profession. If you’ve never heard of Instanbulls, you may be more familiar with their old username on ThemeForest, Pockbe.  But a couple years ago, they changed their name.  Same great themes, different user name.

No big deal.

Istanbulls has included a ton of value addons for their Mix theme, like Visual Composer, Slider Revolution, a pair of Mass Addons packs, audio player 1.0, Essential grid 2.1, Block Builder 1.1 for Visual Composer, Templatera, Visual Composer Ultimate Layouts and Mega Menu too.  That’s over $200 worth of addons and it helps make Mix a really great value.  For a band, a musician, music venue or small online radio station, that’s a ton of great features to help make your site run smoothly and help it look the way you want it to look.

Mix supports tons of music players too, giving you incredible flexibility.  Soundcloud, Shoutcast, you can link to MP3 files or upload them yourself.  You’ll be able to create drag and drop playlists or use any online radio service.  As for tracking your online successes, you can see listen statistics, download statistics and more.

***EDIT – Okay, I got to the bottom of this issue.  Check this out, a couple reviews and comments from just before Mix was pulled.

This Mix WordPress theme relies on bundled plugins that you would otherwise have to buy, but it appears they aren’t fully functioning and the comments are that you must buy them. They cost almost as much as the theme.

When I try to activate license for plugin Stachethemes Event Calendar, I get an error that says “License activator encountered an error” when I input my purchase code. How do I activate to use Stachethemes Event Calendar?

When I click on the download-button on the tplayer, a new player window pops up and there is no direct download. You can only download the file with a right-click on the download button.

And it would seem that none of these issues were ever addressed.  So, bad service, the old switcheroo in terms of having to purchase the plugins and that adds up to a bad theme that I’m glad they pulled.  Mix isn’t the only theme that should be yanked post haste, but it’s good to see ThemeForest cleaning up the obvious trash.

Provolio

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.

Liwo

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.

liwo-wordpress-templates-h9vft-o
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.

liwo-wordpress-website-templates-m1gyi-o

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.

Superfood, WordPress Food Blog Theme for Foodies

http://themeit.com/best-wordpress-recipe-blog-themes/

This is superfood, a vibrant, organically fun WordPress theme for food products, healthy living and downhome cooking.  Yeehaw!

Superfood is simple to use, easy to customize and it provides a cornucopia of options for styles, feels and looks.  Wanta  food blog that’s completely into social media?  Super Food is devfionitely that.  This thing is like a Kardashian with the Tweetagramming and the Instafacing.

I love the look of this template, Super Food gives you a dozen different homepage layouts to choose from.  Now, if you don’t like the images, don’t worry, you’ll be subbing in your own.  That’s something I noticed anout this theme, not all the images are things I’d pick.  They’re okay, but I don’t know.  I love them but I’m not *in* love with them.  That’s nonsense anyway.

Super Food is a popular offering from Elated Themes a relatively new theme maker but one that’s made an impression on a lot of folks already.  Let’s peep some other designs really quick.

Superfood Landing Page Recipe Blog

 

For a food blog theme, you could definitely do a lot worse than Superfood!

Check out the coffees shop demo.  Cool fonts seem to be necessary for a good coffee shop.  My favorite font maker is House IndustriesSudtipos is good too.  In fact, I love Sudtipos so much, I used their Calgary Script font on my site’s logo.  How do you like that?

Or the bakery look. I can practically smell myself getting fatter.  One thing I really do value about Super Food, the demo sites really do cover a wide array of what you could do with the template if you buy it.

Super Food Bakery Style Theme

Here’s a grocery store theme, ideal for small grocers, organic shops, even local coops.

How about this traditional WordPress restaurant theme look?

While Food Blog is obviously meant to be a, well, a food blog primarily, the portfolio page is snappy and fun.  I think it lends itself pretty well to any sort of portfolio site, though maybe it’s a bit specialized for some tastes.

Super Food Portfolio Page

Okay, so that’s Superfood.  What do you think?  If you want to get into a food blog, it’s a great choice.  And still solid for some other uses too.
