As with most of the free themes on this blog, we’re constantly looking for the best options for you to get a website up and running fast. Obviously, some of the free themes you find on the internet are not going to serve you all that well. That’s why we try to avoid those options all together. Some free themes are riddled with coding problems, and that’s exactly what you want to avoid when going for a portfolio WordPress theme. After all, it would be rather disappointing to learn that a potential client couldn’t see your portfolio because the website was fidgety or not running fast enough. A portfolio is what represents you as a designer, writer, artist or photographer. No piece of technology should affect the way you do business. Seeing as how we’re about to cover free portfolio WordPress themes, it’s a good idea to go over some of the items that make a quality solution. For example, all of these listed below are going to have responsive designs. Otherwise you’re going to find yourself in a situation where potential clients can’t open up portfolio photos on their mobile devices.

Another feature that’s pretty much required for a good portfolio theme is a quality gallery. You’ll want flexibility for constructing the way your gallery is presented, along with some tools for people to filter through the photo gallery. This decreases the time users have to spend on your site because they can quickly look at your past works to decide whether or not they want to hire you. Flexibility is the key for a decent portfolio, because you don’t want to get stuck in a situation where you have to be spending an insane amount of time adjusting your portfolio. You should have your branding intact from the start, and you should be able to spend most of your time focusing on your work, as opposed to the content of your website. Seeing as how so many portfolio WordPress themes are scattered throughout the internet, we cut down the shopping process for you. Keep reading to learn more about the best solutions, and feel free to bookmark the page if you’re a developer with several clients.


Simpleshift

Simpleshift

   Info »  Demo »

The Simpleshift WordPress theme makes a wonderful impression on future employers. The theme has a super flexible, multi-purpose design, which is ideal for breaking into the industry of your choice. Whether you’re a new freelancer, or someone who has been in the industry for years, this is an option that will make you look professional and polished. The one page business theme consolidates most of your content on a single page, making it less cluttered and complicated for people to locate your past work. A paid version is available if you’d like to upgrade to get more features, but generally most people find that the free theme is enough to get by. As you can see from the demo, a header is provided with overlaying text and buttons. These create a call to action effect for pushing people to other parts of the websites and potentially getting them to hire you. For example, a freelance developer could have a portfolio on the homepage, but push users to a contact page for bookings. The header also supports beautiful high resolution images, which can introduce some of the best work you’ve done with other clients.

Right below the header you’ll see a few columns for talking about your services. Alongside icons and bits of text, you can talk about what it is you do, while also leading users to more information. The parallax background images are enough to grab attention and show off your creativity, while the responsive layout connects you with people who are reading off smaller devices. We talked about this in the introduction: How some employers are bound to bring up your portfolios on mobile devices to quickly flip through the items. Call to action text and buttons are scattered throughout the homepage, which you can choose to remove or use for your own benefit. The About Us section is complemented by icons, bringing about a more visual environment for your customers and clients. Not to mention, most people who use this theme rather enjoy the testimonials module for giving people an idea of how credible your business is. The meet the team area is another favorite, since it has pictures of your workers, social media buttons and titles for the people who work for you. You may not have workers, but some companies are going to need this. Along with a latest articles widget, social media buttons and a beautiful contact form on the homepage, the Simpleshift WordPress theme impresses even the most advanced developers.


Simple Business

Simple Business

   Info »  Demo »

Consider the Simple Business WordPress theme if you’re attempting to go for a more playful take on the whole portfolio website. As with all of the themes on this page, Simple Business is completely free and ready for scaling up your business. The sleek and feature-rich theme has some interesting settings for implementing Google Fonts. This is particularly useful since so many developers are looking for fun, or professional, typography. The Font Awesome icons help out with turning your website into a more visual platform. These icons go well next to descriptions of your services, giving people a better idea of what you can do for them. The photo friendly layout has support for a high resolution header. Yet, you can also upload full width images in all of your blog posts, generating beautiful imagery throughout the entire website. The responsive design means that your site is visible to people who are on the go. Whether they’re reading your blog through a tablet or phone, they’ll always have the right image and column sizes. Shortcodes and scripts come packaged into the Simple Business theme, cutting down the amount of time you spend developing on your site.

If you’re not familiar with shortcodes, they serve as little snippets of code so that you don’t have to go into the source code files to make modifications. Some of the more common shortcodes generate items like buttons and columns. Design colors, fonts and sizes are all setup to work as simple settings on the backend. This means that you don’t have to spend much time locating the settings, and you are given the opportunity to construct the ideal branding strategy for your own business. Since this article is about portfolios, it’s worth mentioning that you can develop a few galleries on your site. The homepage has its own little gallery for customization, and these smaller images can link to other places on your site. In addition, the sidebars can be removed if you feel like you need more room on your homepage. This is common for portfolio sites, because you don’t want to take too much attention away from the portfolio by using widgets in a sidebar. The multiple frontpage layouts bolster your portfolio’s effectiveness, with options like the Revolution Slider plugin and featured pages. Along with static images and an easy to use customizer, the Simple Business WordPress theme seems like a winner in our book. Heck, you can even showcase your team members with a beautiful widget.


Architekt

Architekt

   Info »  Demo »

The Architekt theme offers parallax and responsive elements, both of which generate creativity on your site. This is mainly built for architects, but it can technically be used for just about any type of portfolio. For example, we can see an interior designer or web developer taking advantage of the modern theme. The responsive design snaps all of the portfolio items into place, and each of these thumbnails are perfect for presenting your past work in a reasonable format. This is a clean, simple and unique solution, with a large header and text module towards the right of the header. This module presents a paragraph of information that you can use to educate people on what your site is all about. For example, users will want to know exactly what type of work you do. A search bar complements the menu towards the top of the page, strengthening the overall navigation possibilities. Each of the portfolio items have small thumbnails, and you don’t have to spend much time editing theme down to fit on the grid.

Upon clicking one of the portfolio items, users are sent to see more details. A few widgets can be managed in the footer. For example, you can have social media links that push people to places like Facebook and Twitter. This is particularly useful since most users are not going to spend all their time on your website. Rather, your social media posts keep them updated on what’s going on with your business. A recent blog post list resides in the footer as well, and you can place a list of your contact information for people to reach out and contact you. You do have the opportunity to complete a resume page, but the primary focus is all about the portfolio. So, give it a try today.

The post 25+ Minimal Magazine WordPress Themes that are Clutter-Free and Fully Responsive appeared first on ThemeShift.

If you take a look at some of the many online magazines, you’ll notice that the majority of them are cluttered and difficult to read. This particularly applies to the homepages, since they all seem to focus on the same format, with tons of widgets crammed into the screen. Although this has shown to improve conversions, many other magazines are seeing success with more minimalist approaches. It’s clear that some consumers are sick of the clutter they find on other magazines, so they’re looking for a fresher look and a less intimidating feel. That’s where the minimal magazine WordPress themes come into play. Basically, you get a strong setup for publishing your content and getting people to read your magazine, but it’s all without the need for way too many widgets and useless content.

As with most of the lists on this website, we’ve compiled a set of WordPress themes with responsive elements, easy customization tools and even things like translation and PSD files. However, the main area we’re focusing on here is the minimal magazine. Therefore, you’ll find options for publishing your articles quickly, but the end user is also going to have a more pleasant time. Besides that, you’ll find premium features that you would generally see on regular magazine themes. For example, image support is huge when publishing all of these articles on a consistent basis. You’ll also want social media support, clean blog posts and shortcodes that keep your hands out of the source code. So, keep reading to learn more about the best minimal magazine WordPress themes.


Soliloquy Theme

Soliloquy Theme

   Info »  Demo »

The Soliloquy WordPress theme offers a photo friendly layout, with support for a wide range of image files and sizes. The theme is ready to be used on mobile devices, and it has a beautiful home slider for showing off your most important blog posts. Choose from an unlimited number of color combinations, and utilize the 100s of font choices for the ultimate branding. The shortcode library is pretty impressive, and we suggest that all webmasters utilize these regardless of which theme you choose. In addition, you receive over 400 icons, making your site more visual and appealing to readers. Multiple frontpage layouts are given to you upon purchasing the Soliloquy theme. For example, one of them is for a static image, while some of the others have more versatile effects. The fully loaded options panel is one of the simplest we’ve seen in terms of magazine layouts. The backend includes tools for fonts, colors, shortcodes, scripts and more.

Custom excerpts are available to highlight important parts on your blog posts. So, if you have a killer quote or a sentence that defines the entire article, feel free to use the custom excerpt. Ongoing updates are simply a part of the wonderful support that comes from the folks at Nimbus Themes, and social media options prevent you from having to go out and find a third party plugin for this purpose. Although most beginners will feel right at home with the Soliloquy theme, a custom CSS module is packaged into the backend for the more advanced coders. Keep in mind that this theme does not have to be used as a magazine. However, the homepage and blog are both ripe for generating a magazine with simple formatting settings and beautiful designs. Overall, this is our number one choice to keep around that simple aspect of your magazine.


Blocco

Blocco

   Info »  Demo »

Try out the Blocco WordPress theme for a completely unique take on the whole magazine setup. This one is completely responsive, and it caters to those who would like to place audio clips on the site. The homepage looks more like a portfolio, with grid-based images, and links to the articles on other pages. Your logo sits on a vertical slant, and the background can be adjusted for your branding purposes. The entire navigational menu is seen on the right hand side of the page, along with social media buttons for boosting your follower rates. A search bar is also packaged into the theme, which is rather important for this one, because the navigation is a little limited on the homepage.

Video, audio and images are all supported as post types. When someone clicks on one of the blog posts they see a beautiful featured image, your text and a comment box for discussion. This is by far one of the more minimal magazine themes on the list, but it also has a modern, and somewhat playful, feel. The Blocco WordPress theme is from the folks at Press75, so you know that the support is solid, and the theme coding is going to work with all plugins. If you’re interested in something different for your magazine website, give this one a look, or bookmark it for later use.


OneEngine by Engine Themes

OneEngine by Engine Themes

   Info »  Demo »

The OneEngine theme comes from the team at ThemeEngine, and it’s a completely free magazine solution with premium features. Simplicity is the name of the game with this one, and it all starts on the backend with a beautiful page builder. Drag and drop your elements to wherever you want on the page, and even jump into the CSS coding if you’re feeling adventurous. The glorious design is meant for a simple, one page layout, meaning that your magazine will not intimidate anyone. However, you still receive a full blog for pumping out those articles. The theme is designed with the user experience in mind, and the responsive layout gets the ball rolling in that realm. All of your website elements snap into place when viewed on a tablet or phone, and it’s easy to adjust these on the backend in case you’d like something to show up a little higher or lower on the mobile interface. Since this is a one page theme you have the opportunity to customize a wide range of homepage rows.

The first one is for talking about your services. You may not need this for a magazine, but it’s still a handy area with columns and icons. It could technically be used for anything. Parallax effects are scattered all over the homepage, and you can embed videos right on top of these effects for grabbing attention and explaining to people what your magazine is all about. The about module has a timeline feature, guiding readers through the history of your business. Showcase your skills with meters and graphs, or simply talk about what types of articles are located in the magazine. The Our Team section is one of the more important sections for magazines. You’ll have a chance to give credit to the people who write articles for you, while also linking to their social media pages. What’s cool is that the OneEngine WordPress theme also includes a beautiful portfolio. Setup links to past work, and show people what you have been doing with your time. The portfolio has a grid-based layout, and the images link to other pages. Along with a full blog, pricing page and contact form, the OneEngine is one impressive free magazine theme.


Point

Point

   Info »  Demo »

The Point WordPress theme delivers a free option for getting your minimal magazine up and running within just a few minutes. This is a completely responsive theme, and the advanced backend will make you wonder how they can give this thing away for free. Multiple site layouts are provided, and you can change around anything from colors to fonts. Adjust your background to hammer down your branding strategy, and us it as a way to show people what your magazine offers. The friendly layout uses information boxes and styled widgets, while the custom widget library works well for grabbing features that are not immediately included with the Point theme. Unlimited color schemes are packaged into the theme, while the translation ready files improve on how you reach out to other people who don’t speak your language. Feel free to customize the HTML and CSS in the backend, and watch as related posts are displayed at the end of every blog post. This is rather important for keeping people on your website for a longer period of time.

Social media buttons come along with the theme, further expanding the number of premium features you get for free. You’ll notice from the demo that the majority of the homepage is constructed with widgets. It’s not the most minimal of themes on this list, but it does a pretty good job of keeping the design simple and organizing your recent post lists in a professional manner. For example, you can have a list of sponsors in the sidebar, right next to a list of the most popular articles on your website. We particularly enjoy the search bar, but the standout feature is the news ticker at the top of the page. It lets you change around the text whenever you want, keeping people updated with the most recent news for your industry. In terms of design, the Point theme has somewhat of a technology look, but it’s not a bad choice for just about any industry.


Clear News

Each of the posts has a featured image which is a great way to draw your visitors in and encourage them to read on. The sidebar widget appears only after you click on the + button which truly provides a minimal layout.

The posts are displayed in a single column layout with a widget that displays more of the posts in the same category. Once again, the sidebar is brought out by clicking on the + button and it allows you to include additional content. Clear News is responsive and looks stunning even on mobile devices and it comes with a theme customizer that lets you style every detail.

The post 30+ Best Fitness WordPress Themes for Gyms, Spas and Health Clubs appeared first on ThemeShift.

Years ago the only way to stay fit was to go to a dark gym, with free weights and Arnold Schwarzenegger type characters grunting and flexing. However, the times have changed. Now, every person from all types of backgrounds can find the right type of fitness program. For example, some businesses have managed to turn stationary cycling into a rather profitable endeavor. You’ll also find full yoga studios with nothing else but classes in large rooms.

Heck, some gyms are dedicated exclusively to rock climbing, with not a weight machine in sight. Regardless of the type of fitness program you’re trying to start, a fitness WordPress theme is your best bet for getting the word out. Most of the themes below even allow you to build your own blogs, sell fitness products and launch video programs for those who would like to workout at home. A theme is the first step in advancing a fitness business, so let’s get started.

What are the Primary Features to Look For in a Fitness Theme?

Some fitness businesses only need a simple blog for writing articles about health trends and new product releases. However, others are selling fitness products or trying to get more people in the the gym. Therefore, we recommend looking for fitness themes with some sort of eCommerce functionality. Also, you’re most likely going to need a booking module for scheduling classes and getting people to book the times they want to come in. We also like fitness themes with email subscription forms.

Who Should Be Using a Fitness Theme?

If you’re a fitness blogger, you may need a theme. If you’re selling fitness supplements, yoga mats, workout gear, running shoes, or a fitness video program, you need a fitness theme that connects to something like WooCommerce. If you run a brick and mortar gym, your site becomes even more important, considering your online presence is the only thing that’s going to organize your classes, give people information about your gym, and allow for imagery to entice new customers.

Check Out the Best Options Below

The SEO optimization is packaged right into the theme, along with translation files, speed optimization, and fantastic support from the developers. The large slider serves as a good start for your website, and the social media buttons lead people to places like Facebook and Twitter.

The Nivo Slider is responsive and the custom widgets assist with promoting your hours, schedules, and more. The primary reason we like this theme is because it includes a beautiful request form, opening up options for all health organizations.

We like that the theme has a page just for treatments, while the shop page is perfect for selling anything for fitness gear to massage oils.

A quick skin change button is provided in the backend, while the animated gallery types are sure to grab attention from customers. The WooCommerce support is just one of the plugins this theme integrates with, considering you can connect with social plugins, MailChimp, FontAwesome, and more.

Construction never seems to be completed, especially if you live in a city. That’s good news for construction companies because they always know that work is on the horizon. However, that makes you wonder how contractors and construction companies find their work. It’s certainly not through the YellowPages anymore. Nope, the majority of construction companies are found on the internet, with a simple Google search. Therefore, if your construction company website is out of date, or non-existent, a problem is certainly going to arise. Whether a company offers construction services for cities or businesses or residential situations, the clients are constantly going to be searching websites for the next contractor to work with. Since the goal of getting a professional website is to spend as little time on it as possible, your best bet is to go with a construction WordPress theme. Lots of them are available online, so we put together a list of the best options to choose from.

What should you expect from a quality construction theme? To start, it’s nice to have lots of visual elements, showing off the type of work you’ve done in the past. In addition, each of the themes below should have responsive elements for viewing on mobile devices. We like construction themes that are built with construction in mind, so it’s nice when they come along with branding that reflects the industry. Also, you’ll need options for clients to get in contact with you. Sometimes this comes in the form of a contact form, while other construction companies are more comfortable with some sort of booking module. Regardless, potential clients need to be able to reach you, so each of the themes below have some communication solution. Now that we understand what we’re looking for in a construction theme, keep reading to learn about the best ones to go with.


BusinessOne

BusinessOne

   Info »  Demo »

The BusinessOne WordPress theme is a good start because it doesn’t have anything crazy that would turn off most construction companies. Basically, the theme allows for you to develop a website, regardless of the niche you work in. The beautiful business WordPress theme has a solid homepage with flexible options and interesting tools on the backend. Specialized custom widgets are great for those who want some sort of a drag and drop interface, while the isolated sidebars ensure that you have a place to put those widgets. Since widgets are so prominent on the theme, you don’t have to worry much about coding, and constructing your site should only take a few minutes or hours. The theme is completely responsive, so if a client or user pulls up your website on a tablet or phone, they should still be able to read and view content without any problems. The truly unique layout combines well with the post types, since it gives you options like testimonials, products, slides and more.

The custom widgets were discussed a little bit before, but you can implement them for social sharing. For example, the Flickr and Twitter widgets are essential for connecting with clients and showing off your past work. The multiple color schemes are rather powerful, considering they help out with matching your branding to a logo. Translation files are packaged into the theme, generating an atmosphere that is suitable for anyone who speaks a different language than you. Several page templates and shortcodes come along with the BusinessOne WordPress theme. Shortcodes are nice for building items like buttons and columns, all without the need for complex code. The page templates include the testimonials page, which is ideal for showing clients that you run a credible construction business. The slider includes overlaying text for talking about the images, which delivers an incredible experience for any new visitors. Along with a map that embeds into the page and an email collection form, the BusinessOne WordPress theme has a simple, yet professional layout for just about any type of construction business.


Mega Project

Mega Project

   Info »  Demo »

The Mega Project WordPress theme is built primarily for construction companies, making it the first option on the list that caters to the industry. This means that you’ll receive quite a few icons and images that relate to construction. Therefore, you can have a website up and running within minutes, but we still encourage you to upload your own images eventually. Four header styles improve the outlook of your brand right from the start. Users see what your company is all about, and the headers have call to action text for sending folks to other parts of your website. Several post formats are supported, adding variety to every part of your website. The Master Slider is one of the hottest slider options on the market, giving you a beautiful slideshow of your images, while keeping the resolution of those images intact. A page builder is provided on the backend, offering an instant drag and drop interface for both beginners and advanced users. Although many page builders are not that great, this one does a pretty good job of keeping your hands out of the source code. We like it for advanced users because they can speed up the development process, while beginners have a chance to make something beautiful without knowing much about design.

The Mega Project WordPress theme has responsive elements, making it look wonderful on just about all devices. Therefore, someone could be sitting on a train, bring up your site on a phone and still efficiently scroll through pictures of your past work. The GoodLayers importer does a good job of generating demo content for your initial site. Although you probably won’t stick with this demo content, it gives you a decent idea as to how your site should look before making changes. The beautiful admin panel provides tons of features, and they are all organized rather well. Choose between boxed and full-width layouts for your design, and utilize the mega menu in case you plan on having a significant amount of pages on your website. The mega menu feature is generally for large online stores, but you may actually end up having lots of pages if you sell items online or include a decent amount of pictures. WooCommerce is supported with the theme, so you shouldn’t have any difficulty with developing your online store. Finally, the Mega Project WordPress theme offers five project layouts, all of which are pretty modern and stylish.


Construction

Construction

   Info »  Demo »

As you may have noticed from the name, the Construction WordPress theme is all about helping construction companies. It has tailor-made elements for presenting your past work, and some of the initial images that come along with the theme show pictures of cranes and other equipment. Multiple header examples are provided, so you have the opportunity to select the one that fits your brand the best. The theme is completely responsive, helping people on the go who would like to take a quick look at your portfolio. The one click demo importer cuts down on the amount of time you would have to spend to construct a completely usable website. In addition, the free visual page builder provides website elements that you can drag and drop anywhere on your site. For example, if you wanted a button or slider on the homepage, you could simply drag and drop it to the place you desire. A few other premium themes are given to you for free when purchasing the Construction theme. Another one is called Slider Revolution, which delivers a beautiful slider with overlaying text, buttons and animations. It’s one of the easiest ways to grab attention and show people to other parts of your website. The free Essential Grid plugin has some interesting functionality for construction companies, because it situates thumbnail images into grids for a stunning portfolio layout.

Over 600 Google Fonts are packaged into the Construction theme. We like this because you can go through the font library to see which of them look nice with your logo and content. The translation ready files connect you with people from all over the world. Even if you just focus on business in your area, the translation files may eventually get you a customer who doesn’t speak your language. Social media buttons come with the theme, cutting out the need to find a third party plugin that would eventually end up slowing down your site. All of your contact information resides on the top of the page, and it stays there when the mobile interface reveals itself. Use parallax effects to hold attention and show off your creative side, and consider trying out the recent news module for sharing articles from your blog. A blog may not be on the top of your list for a construction company, but businesses who embrace blogging generally have better relationships with their customers and the search engines. Feel free to setup a WooCommerce shop directly on the website, and configure the contact form so that potential clients can shoot you a quick message. Overall, the Construction WordPress theme is one of the best in the business, so give it a try today.


Divi

Divi

   Info »  Demo »

Divi is truly a theme in a league of its own. It’s one of the best-rated themes with an impressive set of features and a stunning design. The theme includes more than 20 premade layouts which can be used by a variety of niches. The best part about Divi is the Divi Builder which makes it incredibly easy to modify any of the premade layouts as well as to create your own unique layout. The builder uses a simple drag-and-drop interface that allows you to add more than 40 different content modules such as columns, testimonials, post titles, buttons, calls-to-action, portfolios, and much more.

On top of that, Divi is fully responsive and looks beautiful on any device. The theme options panel lets you to upload your own logo, favicon, insert your social media profile links, as well as customize your header, footer, colors, typography, and much more. No matter which industry you belong to, Divi is definitely a theme worth checking it out.


Renovate

Renovate

Renovate is a responsive, retina-ready theme best suited for construction, renovation, or remodeling businesses. It can also be used by any handyman, tradesman, or skilled worker to create a stunning online presence. The theme features an eye-catching header area which is perfect to include a slider that highlights your services. Add a prominent call to action directly below the slider to encourage visitors to contact you or request a quote. There is also a section to feature your latest projects and your services. Different sections of the homepage are highlighted by parallax design which is a great way to add animation to your website without slowing it down.

The most notable feature of this theme is the Cost Calculator Tool which makes it easy to get cost estimates for construction, installation, repair, home maintenance, or renovation. Renovate includes a few premium plugins such as Revolution Slider and Visual Composer plugin which makes customizing the layout of your website easy. Twelve different page templates are also included in the theme so you can easily add all the necessary pages without the need to hassle with code.


BusinessTwo

Your services are highlighted with a gorgeous slider which can also be used to show your latest blog posts.

The best WordPress classified themes are the ones that have flexibility and cleanliness. When you stop at a place like Craigslist, it’s pretty clear that they have put a decent amount of work into offering a wide range of products and services, along with a fairly clean interface. However, many of these classified sites like Craigslist are becoming more and more outdated. That’s why it’s a good time to take advantage of a certain niche, or to generate a website that works even better than the big dogs. Heck, the guys who started AirBnB could have stopped when they realized that what they were doing was basically replicating the apartment sharing and leasing section on Craigslist. But they realized that lots of functionality was missing, so they built their own classifieds system just for that purpose. Overall, classifieds are really good moneymakers if done properly. Therefore, we recommend going with a WordPress classified theme in order to put most of your focus on building a solid community.

Hundreds to thousands of classified themes are available for you to download and buy. However, not all of them are the greatest. That’s why we put together a list of the best options, so that you don’t have to stress about whether or not you chose one with bad support or poor coding. During our search, we only chose themes that included responsive features, because so many people are using their mobile phones for classifieds nowadays. In addition, we wanted to display options with easy setups. Nothing is more confusing than having a business plan and getting sidetracked by a complicated WordPress theme. Along with that, you’ll want frontend submission features, plenty of support for media and profiles for both buyers and sellers. If you’re ready to get started on your classifieds journey, keep reading to find the best solutions.


Classiera

Classiera

   Info »  Demo »

Classiera serves as one of the more elegant classified ad themes on the market, using a powerful framework and quality code to ensure that you can implement any plugins and keep a fast site going. The six unique homepage designs ensure that your site doesn’t look exactly like every person’s site who bought the theme. Custom fields are offered for each category, assisting with navigation and improving the overall user experience. The frontend user profile and submission system is one of the standout features. As you might assume, a classifieds website isn’t much when people can’t login and get started with building their profile. Users will also want a way to quickly submit their classifieds and pay you money for the opportunity. The Google Maps integration guides users to the right places when trying to buy an item, while the unlimited colors are great for matching with your logo and developing a solid brand.

Google fonts and Font Awesome icons are packaged into the theme as well, boosting the visual aspects of your site and allowing you to break up your text a little bit. The video ads are something you generally don’t see on a classifieds site, so you can make some money and take a completely different route by showing users ads that are more visual in nature. The Classiera theme is completely responsive for viewing on smaller devices. We like this for classifieds, because you’ll often find that users are more likely to bring along their phones when meeting up with a seller. For example, when a user makes a car sale, they will have to eventually tell the buyer where to pick up the car. In this case that buyer will most likely have your site open on their phone when navigating to the location. The coming soon template is a nice little bonus, considering you generally have to buy a completely new theme in order to achieve this look. Therefore, when you’re building your site you don’t have to have a completely blank page. Along with a blog template, layer slider and an advanced search bar, the Classiera WordPress theme is one of our favorites.


Motors - Automotive Classified Theme

Motors - Automotive Classified Theme

   Info »  Demo »

Choose the Motors WordPress theme if you’re trying to construct a classifieds page for cars. The main reason this is at the top of our list is because the theme comes with an incredible inventory management module. Upload media items, customize what your listings are going to look like and see each and every one of the cars that are stocked at your store. The filterable listings are ideal, since most of the people who come to your site are going to have a certain type of car in mind. They can select the type of color they desire, along with options like make, model, size and more. A CSV import tool is included with the theme, improving your ability to quickly get your inventory onto the site and selling in no time. As you may have assumed, the entire design for the Motors theme is completely responsive. This means that people on the go can bring up your site and buy a car directly from their cell phone. Although you may not think users would want to buy cars through a mobile device, you’d be surprised how many folks are buying all sorts of products through these little devices. The drag and drop page builder is one of the hottest trends in the web design industry. Why is this the case? Because advanced users want to speed up the development process, while beginners are not interested in coding their own websites.

The five predefined color skins are not that impressive, but it’s a starting point for generating a look that fits your brand. In addition to that, you don’t have to spend much time on the color scheme, because your options are limited. The true hero with this theme is the amount of shortcodes. These shortcodes are all included for you to use, and they are great for copying and pasting anywhere on your site. If you’re not aware of what a shortcode does, it basically works as a small snippet of code, so that you can create simple or advanced elements without having to mess with the source code. The shortcodes help out with making buttons, columns, sliders and more. What’s more is that you receive a finance calculator with the theme, helping people out who are looking to buy a car with financing. Whenever someone wants to sell their own car on your site, the theme asks them questions about all of the details. So, you don’t have to interact with the sellers at all. Simply offer these forms, and ask sellers to fill them out without any questions asked. Along with a WooCommerce shop, a vehicle comparison tool and really nice user profiles, the Motors WordPress theme is exactly what you need for selling cars.


Point Finder

Point Finder

   Info »  Demo »

The Point Finder WordPress theme offers a versatile directory and classifieds layout, with a responsive design and beautiful maps for users to locate where the sellers are at. The goal with this theme is to give you a template that allows for any type of customization. Therefore it doesn’t matter if you develop a car selling site or a technology selling site, you should be able to achieve it with the help of the Point Finder WordPress theme. You have access to a membership or pay per post system. Therefore, it lets you choose whether you’d like to get a quick payment for every single post, or if you’d like to offer monthly memberships for each user. We recommend implementing both of these plans, since it’s beneficial to have recurring income and one-time sellers. The customizable search and item fields are great for guiding people throughout your site. It’s always a boost to your credibility when users find their desired products in a reasonable manner. A review system is one of the main reasons we have the Point Finder WordPress theme on the list. Users can go onto the site and review sellers and products, making for a beautifully credible atmosphere.

The advanced theme options are all managed on the backend, which we think just about anyone can use. It doesn’t matter if you’re an advance coder or a newbie, because the Point Finder WordPress theme is pretty simple to utilize. What’s really cool is that you don’t have to pay for any of the premium plugins that come along with your theme purchase. Therefore, you gain access to the Visual Composer plugin, which is one of the top drag and drop editors on the market. Stripe and PayPal both interact with the theme, giving you a chance to collect money for all of the transactions that go through the site. Not to mention, WooCommerce integrates flawlessly with the Point Finder theme, bringing you even closer to your profit goals. Slider Revolution is yet another premium plugin you receive with your purchase. This plugin delivers a stunning slider towards the top of your page, and it allows for overlaying text and buttons, boosting the effectiveness of your call to actions. What else can we say? The Point Finder theme is one of the best.


eList by ElegantThemes

The theme also includes a set of shortcodes that make it easy to add buttons, toggles, and other design elements. On top of that, eList includes translation files which make it easy to translate your website into any language so you can connect with a wider audience.


Responsive Classifieds Theme for WordPress

Responsive Classifieds Theme for WordPress

The theme is incredibly easy to install and even easier to customize thanks to the powerful theme options panel. Feature-wise, this theme has everything you need to create a powerful classifieds website. Setup free or paid listing packages so your users can add their own listings.

A common misconception is that cheap WordPress themes are of the lowest quality. Although this can be true, you can find an incredible number of free or cheap themes that provide premium features, all without the high price tag. For example, you generally have to pay around $50 to $100 for what would be considered a premium theme. There’s nothing wrong with this price point, especially when you get a high-powered theme built on a framework like Genesis.

However, a $30 or $40 theme could still provide the tools, support and cleanliness you would need for a blog, eCommerce shop or business presence, even if you plan on having lots of traffic. Overall, it’s wise to not rule out cheaper themes when completing your search. After all, most smaller businesses and startups can use that saved cash to spend on other areas like branding, marketing, additional web design, or product development.

What to Look For With Cheap WordPress Themes

Since this is a rather vague category of themes, it’s not exactly easy to hammer down the core features to look for. However, we can say that all of the cheaper WordPress themes should still have responsiveness, SEO optimization, a clean interface, localization and quality browser support. You’ll also want to ensure that the developers didn’t cut any corners with the coding. Otherwise you’ll find that some plugins conflict and the site slows down after awhile.

Who Should Be Considering a Cheap Theme?

Bloggers are the main group of people that come to mind here. Why is that? Because more affordable themes still give you the blogging functionality you need, and they are generally cleaner designs. However, eCommerce shop owners have some options to look at below as well. Overall, I would recommend these themes to people who want to save a little bit of money getting started. You can always change your theme if you feel you’ve grown out of one of these.

The Highest Quality Cheap Themes on The Market:


Eshop

Eshop

   Info »  Demo »

As our first suggestion, we have a solid choice for those interested in selling products online. The Eshop theme is compatible with WooCommerce, and it offers a clean and minimalist interface. Keep in mind that this is a Genesis child theme, so you will have to buy Genesis separately. However, the theme has all the basics, such as powerful coding, localization, and responsiveness. SEO optimization comes along with the theme as well.

The theme provides a slider with overlaying text and buttons, and the shopping cart is constantly shown in the header. Your contact information can go at the top of the page, and the several shortcodes are there for building buttons, testimonials, client lists, and more. A few page templates improve the way you design things like blog posts and archival pages, while the full portfolio comes in handy when trying to generate a gallery with images.


Brixton

Brixton

   Info »  Demo »

The Brixton WordPress theme goes for $39, and it offers a modern blog solution for just about any industry. The theme is completely responsive for mobile devices, and you get an unlimited number of color variations for branding. The Google Web Fonts are nice for typography, while the super fast loading pages help out with SEO. You can also choose between full width and boxed versions, depending on what you would like your final product to look like.

The Instagram feed is a nice module that you generally wouldn’t get for so cheap, and the post templates include support for videos, galleries, audio, and quotes. Feel free to use your own custom logo and favicon, and utilize the CSS3 features and animations if you have more experience working with code. The main reason we like the Brixton theme is because of its clean and crisp design, but the premium features are nice too.


SimpleShift

SimpleShift

   Info »  Demo »

You only have to pay $39 to get your hands on the SimpleShift theme, and it has a flexible interface with multipurpose design elements. You’ll find that the support from ThemeShift is some of the best out there, and the responsive design snaps right into place when on mobile devices. The WooCommerce support comes in handy if you’re planning on selling digital or physical items, while the unlimited colors are perfect for matching up with your logo.

SEO optimization is included with your purchase, and the parallax effects are sure to grab attention when people land on your site. Quite a few custom widgets are provided as well, allowing for areas to feature your services, products or even testimonials. Your latest blog posts show up beautifully on the homepage, and there’s a dedicated section for talking about your employees and sharing pictures of them as well.


Electra

Electra

   Info »  Demo »

The Electra WordPress theme comes from the folks at TeslaThemes, and it serves as a multipurpose solution. The $48 theme provides a responsive design, and the Slider Revolution plugin comes along with it. It runs off the Tesla Framework, which supports a filterable portfolio with beautiful thumbnail images. You gain access to a theme with cross-browser functionality, translations and SEO, all there for making your site more effective.

The built-in shortcodes are extremely useful if you’re trying to make areas on your page to feature testimonials, recent works, tabs, or services. The custom posts allow you to add predefined elements to your layout. For example, you receive options for galleries, services, testimonials, and more. The contact and subscription forms combine well with the Google Maps, while the social media support provides beautiful sharing buttons.


One Page

One Page

   Info »  Demo »

The One Page WordPress theme has a nice combination of features, and it all comes in at $59. This is one of the more expensive themes on the list, but you get a little extra. For example, the drag and drop homepage is excellent for configuring what the one page layout is going to look like. In addition, the AJAX loading improves your site speed and makes the interface much nicer for users. Also, you have the ability to disable or enable any section on the theme.

The portfolio post type is a solid bonus, while the unique blog layouts are sure to create some variety throughout the site. SEO is all set once you buy the theme, and the more advanced users can adjust CSS and HTML. The One Page theme has unlimited colors and the clean code makes for fast load times. A counter and Twitter feed provide useful options, and the pricing table can be used by many types of companies. Along with a testimonials and clients section, the One Page theme offers quite a bit for the price.


Brooklyn

Brooklyn

   Info »  Demo »

We like the Brooklyn theme for several different types of businesses, since it has a multipurpose configuration for only $49. The theme is ready in one click, and you get over 20 demos for things like weddings, barber shops, and restaurants. The powerful admin panel allows for simple portfolio management, and the unique pricing table management section is great for anything from restaurants to design agencies.

Full translation for your site is readily available, and the Slider Revolution plugin is packaged into the theme, saving you around $57. You also get the Visual Composer plugin for a sleek drag and drop interface. It’s hard to say what you may end up using this theme for, but to narrow it down for you, here are some of the demo categories: corporate, creative, entertainment, non-profit, retail, technology, and wedding. Nice!


Zen

Zen

   Info »  Demo »

The Zen WordPress theme delivers a simple and minimalist layout that we like for blogs and portfolios. The theme starts at $49, and it comes with the FlexSlider plugin for a nice presentation of images on the homepage. Around 10 color schemes are also provided, making for an easier branding experience. The theme has a mobile interface for smaller devices, and it has localization, browser support, and SEO optimization.

As with many of the ZigZagPress themes, you will have to buy the Genesis Framework for this one to work properly. That said, some of the page templates are rather powerful. For example, you get a complete landing page for showing off individual products. Social media buttons are included with the purchase, and you gain access to a full portfolio section. Along with interesting page layouts and templates, the Zen theme is ideal for blogging.


FashionBlog

FashionBlog

   Info »  Demo »

Try out the FashionBlog theme if you’re thinking about making a fun blog with some more feminine elements. The design is clean, and you receive unlimited color schemes. The options panel provides unlimited background patterns, and the responsive nature of the theme is ideal for smaller devices. Some of your related posts show up underneath your blog posts, and your site runs fast with the help of CSS3 and HTML5 technology.

Premium support is guaranteed through MyThemeShop, and the shortcodes are there for adding different functions without any hassles. What’s cool is that the theme is ready to be monetized with AdSense, too. Additional features include Google Fonts, social media integration with networks like Facebook and Twitter, and translation-readiness.

Choosing the right church is not as easy as you may think. People take these decisions seriously, and there are so many different types of religions to select from. Therefore, if you’re someone running a church, it’s wise to assume that an online presence is one of the most important parts of marketing your religious beliefs. Bringing in more followers is the sole way you can keep the seats filled and the donations coming in. Not only that, but websites are wonderful tools for connecting with the public through event calendars, photo galleries, informational pages and more. For example, a Catholic church may be interested in sharing a page with pictures and information about all of the priests in the parish. The people who attend the church are going to want to learn about the priests leading them, and it’s important to build that personal connection with those who are making things happen on a day to day basis.

So, how do you go about making a beautiful church website? Your best bet is to avoid hefty website building fees, since you don’t need to be a coding genius that starts a website from scratch. In fact, the internet is filled with WordPress church themes, or templates that begin the design process for you, and pretty much deliver a fully functional site right out of the box. We made a solid list of some quality options for you below, and during our research we considered quite a few elements. First of all, we wanted all of the themes to be mobile responsive, so everyone could bring up events, blog posts and other information through smaller devices. Along with event functionality, easy backend features, customization tools and more, the following church WordPress themes are the best you can find online.

Real Church - Responsive Retina Ready Theme

Real Church - Responsive Retina Ready Theme

   Info »  Demo »

The first church them you’ll want to look at is called Real Church. It’s sold on ThemeForest, and you’ll notice that the theme has lots of solid reviews from the people who have bought it before. The Real Church theme provides pages for sermons, so that users can go on the site and get a recap of what was talked about. You’ll also see a place to talk about the pastors and priests, generating a personalized connection with the people who come to church. Events are managed on the backend then presented on the frontend. Each of these events are easy to manage, and you can insert dates, times, images and more. The responsive design works well in this mobile age we’re living in. You don’t have to worry about whether or not people can view your content on smaller devices, because everything snaps into place as you would expect. The theme customizer is wonderful for modifying items like colors and fonts. In fact, you receive a beautiful drag and drop page builder, cutting down the amount of time spent on constructing the site.

SEO optimization is included, while the localization is ideal for communicating to those who may not speak your language. This is particularly useful for churches, since they are located all over the world and placed in neighborhoods with a wide range of people. the one part we like about the events calendar is that a countdown timer is packaged into the interface. Anyone can see exactly how much time they have to plan for an event like a pancake dinner or a community festival. Unlimited colors and sidebars come into play quite a bit, while the powerful slider supports high resolution images, overlaying text, buttons and more. Social media buttons are packaged into the Real Church theme, eliminating the need to find a third party social media plugin. A blog comes along with your purchase, improving your SEO and showing followers that you’re willing to guide them through the chaos of religion online. An interesting part of the sermons page is that you can have each sermon in multiple formats. Feel free to give out audio clips, videos or file downloads. A recent news module can go on your homepage, and a Twitter feed is nice for reaching out on social media. Along with a decent footer with widgets for contact forms, popular posts and more, the Real Church WordPress theme is one of the top church options out there.


Salvation

Salvation

   Info »  Demo »

The Salvation WordPress theme comes in handy for all types of churches because of its clean and fresh style. Too often you stumble upon church websites that look old and outdated. This is a theme that helps you embrace the power of modern design, with support for responsiveness and elegant stylings. Donations are accepted through a PayPal button, which connects directly to a church PayPal account. The drag and drop homepage utilizes different page building elements, all of which keep your hands out of the source code. Not many people would argue against having a drag and drop editor, considering it’s a powerful solution for visual designing. The event management interface populates a feed of calendar items on the homepage, keeping people updated on what they can expect to be doing soon into the future. In addition, the donation form is a great way to keep track of the people how are actually contributing to your cause.

The fluid responsive design means that all of the site elements snap into place no matter what type of device is being used. The audio post format is one of the standout features, considering it allows churches to post audio clips from services or sermons. You could even have somewhat of a podcast show to connect with your listeners. The ad management system combines well with AdSense, allowing you to make even more money for the church. Integrated social media buttons are useful for both sharing and getting people to follow you on your own social sites. A built-in translation panel can automatically swap out the language if a user lands on your site and can’t understand what the words are saying. Although WordPress has the functionality to work with thousands of plugins, you’ll want to keep those plugins to a minimum. That’s why the Salvation theme provides 12 custom widgets, minimizing the need to look for plugins that are just going to slow down your site. Overall, it’s a well documented theme with a floating header and a homepage slider. Fade in effects come along with parallax features, making your church website look more creative than ever. The carousel section is interesting if your church is trying to sell something, while the over 600 Google Fonts boost your branding strategy quite a bit.


Forgiven - A Powerful WordPress Theme for Churches

Forgiven - A Powerful WordPress Theme for Churches

   Info »  Demo »

Try out the Forgiven WordPress theme if you’re considering an online presence that has support for events, sermons and staff members. To start, the Forgiven theme has over 40 color options, which comes into play when you’re trying to match the overall color shades with that of your logo. We like the WooCommerce integration because it gives your church a chance to sell items and merchandise, further improving your money making abilities. You receive two premium plugins: Soliloquy Slider and Envira Gallery. The slider plugin offers animations, overlaying elements and beautiful transitions. The goal is to grab attention with the slider, and it does all of that and more. The gallery is all about helping you present images from the church’s many events and activities. The easiest way to market these events for next year is to construct a photo gallery from the previous year. The custom “Blur” slider delivers an interesting effect, while you also gain access to the popular Slider Revolution plugin. It’s a lot of sliders to play around with, but having this many options is good in the long run.

As you may have noticed, quite a few custom pages are included with the Forgiven theme. The first one is for showing off information about the staff members who work at the church. This could be anyone from priests to secretaries, so give them each a biography, photos and links to whatever causes they deem worthy. Sermons are presented in audio format, so people can listen to them on the website or download them to their own device. This is another reason why the responsive nature of the theme is so important. The upcoming events module shows quite a few of the more upcoming events on the calendar, with dates, times, pictures and descriptions. A countdown timer is presented on the homepage to reveal exactly when the next big event is going to roll around. We particularly enjoy the several homepage modules and widgets.

For example, a recent tweets feed complements the variety of social media buttons. It’s all about expanding the amount of places you can reach out to your church followers. For example, they are far less likely to come to your website on a consistent basis, so why not publish links to blog posts on Facebook and Twitter as well? Overall, the Forgiven WordPress theme is a powerful package. We recommend it to just about any type of church in the world.


Evangelist

Evangelist

   Info »  Demo »

The Evangelist theme features a unique slider that pairs with an events calendar to immediately bring the attention to all the important events in your church or community. The events can be repeated which means it’s easy to add your sermons to the slider and keep your flock updated. Immediately below the slider, you’ll notice an area that’s perfect for including a download link to your sermon recordings in various formats. Add a few sentences about your church and tell your visitors how they can get involved in the community. Further down the page, you can add links to your latest blog posts as well as include a link to your social media profiles and your email list so you can always get in touch with the members of your community.

The Evangelist theme lets you change theme backgrounds with ease which can be used for selected pages. Besides the regular default blog pages, Evangelist comes with a bunch of built-in page templates such as FAQ, Pricing Page, Donate Page, and Services. On top of that, the theme is fully responsive and retina-ready and thanks to the powerful admin interface you can easily customize every aspect of the theme and build completely unique layouts, add contact forms, unlimited sidebars, and much more.


Deeds

Deeds

   Info »  Demo »

Consider Deeds if you want a clean and minimal theme without sacrificing features. Deeds features 3 built-in homepage layouts, 8 innovative header styles, and a number of built-in pages which make building your website a breeze. With Deeds, you can easily add events, allow your users to submit prayer requests, post your Sunday sermons in video and audio format, manage your ministries, feature your pastors, and more. The theme also includes a section that allows you to add a prominent call to action to collect donations as well as a section to include your social media icons so you can reach your audience on their preferred social media network.

Use FontAwesome icons to add extra visual appeal to your design and customize any aspect of your website through the powerful theme options panel. Use WooCommerce to collect donations and add forums where your church members can participate in discussions with bbPress. Create completely unique layouts with Visual Composer plugin and enjoy all the benefits of the responsive design that comes with the Deeds theme.


Incarnation - Church and Community Theme

Incarnation - Church and Community Theme

   Info »  Demo »

Incarnation is a responsive WordPress church theme that will make a great first impression on your church members and anyone else who lands on your website. It comes with support for audio and video sermons, a full fledged event calendar, a community forum, and many other options such as support for the WPML plugin so you can translate your website into any language. It has a plethora of options so you can easily modify the layout, styling, colors, and fonts through the theme options panel. Build your own skin or use one of 10 predefined skins to add a touch of your own branding.

On top of that, you can modify the layout of any page with the powerful page builder. Use shortcodes and widgets to add extra content or design elements to any of your pages. The theme is also coded with the best practices in mind to ensure the theme is SEO optimized and to give you the initial boost in search engine rankings. As if that’s not enough, Incarnation also includes thorough documentation as well as support from the development team should you run into any issues while setting up your website.

The post 25+ WordPress Directory Themes for Listing, Classified and Ad-focused Websites appeared first on ThemeShift.

Online directories used to be more popular. They were spots on the internet where users could find businesses, websites, niche blogs and more. They were seen as places that businesses must be listed on in order to boost search engine juice. Although Google has since decreased the need for companies to be listed on these directories, many of the niche sites are still running strong. Why? Because the good ones actually provide value for the customers. For example, a directory site like Yelp offers information that you can’t find anywhere else, and people are constantly looking for good restaurants and local businesses to check out. When it’s all said and done, you still have a chance to make a decent amount of money by creating your own online directory. How? It all starts with finding the right niche.

Many directories focus on a single type of restaurant or location. For example, you may have a more credible directory in your small town than Yelp can offer. On the other hand, a directory for certain businesses like marketing firms in the area could perform well. Directories are all over the internet, so the key is to find a niche that either hasn’t been tapped, or the people who are running the directory aren’t doing a good job. There’s no reason to build your directory from scratch, because quite a few WordPress directory themes are sold from third party vendors. We put together a solid list so you don’t have to go searching all over the internet. The main goal is to find a responsive, clean directory theme with filtering and search tools. A map is always nice to have, and compatibility with plugins comes in handy. Keep reading to learn about the top directory themes on the market, and feel free to bookmark this page for future reference.


Cuisine

Cuisine

   Info »  Demo »

The Cuisine WordPress theme presents a powerful and responsive solution with support for restaurants in your area. Basically, it organizes the restaurants you want to have in your directory and lets you categorize them by cuisine. Installing the theme only takes a few minutes, and the various page templates are nice for quickly constructing pages throughout your website. For example, the homepage has a map embedded for users to quickly make searches and find the restaurants they’re interested in around their area. The People page has options for talking about the people who work behind the scenes at your company. It’s also possible to feature folks from the businesses listed on your directory. Feel free to talk about what the people do in your business, and show images of their smiling faces to make your website seem more personable. Each restaurant gets a details page to talk about what they offer in the shop. The user profile page is for both users and restaurants.

Visitors have the chance to bring the map into a full screen view, cutting out all of the distractions that would prevent people from finding the restaurants they want to eat at. The theme is completely ready for mobile interfaces, making it much easier for people on the go to access the listings. It may not seem like a huge deal right now, but a mobile interface is essential for directories, considering so many people are going to look up restaurants while in their car or while walking around. Customizing the theme comes into play when you’d like to change around the colors and fonts. This is all managed on the backend, so there’s no need to touch any source code. We assume that most webmasters are interested in monetizing their directories, so the Cuisine WordPress theme includes a wide set of options for doing so. For example, there’s a setting for creating unlimited pricing packages. So, when a business wants to list on your site, you can just send over the plans. Recurring payments are useful, while the ad banners serve as an alternative way to get the word out about local restaurants. Along with “claim your business” tools, featured business charging and membership packages, the Cuisine WordPress theme is a moneymaking machine.


DirectoryEngine

DirectoryEngine

   Info »  Demo »

Check out the DirectoryEngine WordPress theme if you’re interested in starting from a point that isn’t catered to a single industry. For example, you could make a directory that is focused on restaurants or auto repair shops. It doesn’t matter what the site ends up as, because the DirectoryEngine WordPress theme delivers the settings needed to make it all happen. Featured listing support boosts the amount of money you can make, while the variety of pricing plans are essential for bringing in different types of businesses. Local payment gateways are given to you when purchasing the theme, so you can implement payment gateways like PayPal and Authorize.net. Quite a few others are included, so you can complete your own research to see which one is going to give you the best return. The frontend customization mode has what you need to make modifications without touching the source code. However, more advanced coders still have the ability to get their hands dirty with their own coding.

The built-in content blocks and customizable widgets are the heart and soul of the DirectoryEngine WordPress theme, making for a rather intuitive visual interface. Beginners and advanced users have been known to really enjoy the look and feel of the DirectoryEngine theme, considering it provides tools for both types of people. Maximizing traffic is a large part of running an online directory, and the search engine optimization settings are all packaged into the theme to ensure that you don’t have to do much work on your end. For example, built-in schema support gives search results a more visual view, convincing more users to click through and view your listings. The theme has an SEO friendly directory structure, which runs on both mobile and desktop platforms. An engaging event listing module brings several opportunities into the mix, including the fact that you can share events that your own company is running. The theme suggests certain locations when people are in the area, and the social sharing buttons are sure to improve the amount of exposure you receive online.


Explorable

Explorable

   Info »  Demo »

The Explorable WordPress theme is from the folks at Elegant Themes, meaning that the support is solid, and you won’t have to worry about poor coding. Browser compatibility improves how many people can see your directory, while the mobile responsiveness helps out those who are on the move. Think about how many people are looking for restaurants and businesses on their phones nowadays. If you don’t have this functionality, your competitors are going to blow right past you. Complete localization is a handy tool for connecting with people who may not speak your language. For example, they can choose the language of their choice, even if the majority of your content is listed in English. The Google Maps integration leaves little markers all over the map, guiding users to the spots that are closest to them. This map is the first module that people are going to see when landing on your site. Therefore, it’s essential to fill it with a decent amount of businesses. Otherwise, users aren’t going to think that it’s worth sticking around. The visitor ratings system increases your site credibility, because people can stop by and see that some of the businesses are rated high, while others aren’t considered that good.

The Explorable WordPress theme includes unlimited colors to choose from, so we recommend uploading your logo and using the color picker to match up the rest of your site with your branding strategy. One of the standout features is the filterable search. For example, if someone wants to locate a Chinese restaurant, they may also want one that is somewhat affordable. In order to do that, they need to have the right filtering tools.

Running a hotel comes with a considerable amount of work. You have to manage the staff, make sure all the rooms are clean, connect with customers and understand that each day is going to hit you with a new surprise. In fact, one could argue that managing a hotel is one of the most rewarding, yet difficult jobs in the world. Think about it. You’re in the service industry where anything could happen, yet hopefully you’re in a beautiful area with plenty of activities to do in the neighborhood. The point is that working at a hotel is hard work, so it’s no wonder that managers are not jumping out of their seats to build or manage a website. Therefore, it’s a good idea to go with one of the best WordPress hotel themes. The market is filled with themes built just for hotels and motels, so you’re bound to find a design that fits your needs. For example, you may want to have a reservations module on the homepage. Most of the themes we’re going to talk about today have just that.

As you may expect, all of the hotel themes below are mobile responsive. This gives your customers a chance to look up your website while they are travelling. Think about how convenient it would be to call the hotel while in the car or on a bus. Many others elements come into play when choosing the perfect hotel theme. For example, you need a theme that works well with other plugins, while also running smoothly when people try to visit. All of the themes below are well-coded and compatible with a wide variety of options. Therefore, it’s no wonder that many hotels are snatching up these themes and using them to connect with customers all over the world. If you run a hotel, or have development clients in the hotel business, feel free to bookmark this page for future reference. We’ll be updating it when we stumble upon other high quality themes.


Hotelia

Hotelia

   Info »  Demo »

The Hotelia WordPress theme offers an elegant look, with plenty of white space and a booking module right towards the top of the page. This gem is completely responsive, which makes it ideal for those who are trying to make reservations on smaller devices. The theme comes with the Revolution Slider, which has a wide variety of tools for showing off high resolution images in a presentation format. For example, many hotels include image banners for promotions and images in the the slider. You can implement overlaying text and buttons to send users to other parts of the website, while also sharing images of your coolest rooms. The Visual Composer plugin is another premium tool that you get for free when buying the Hotelia theme. It’s a drag and drop plugin, meaning that none of your source code is ever going to see the light of day. Well, that might be stretching it, but the primary reason people use the Visual Composer plugin is because they don’t want to mess around with coding.

WooCommerce combines well with the Hotelia WordPress theme, increasing your chances of making even more money through the website. For example, you can accept payments, while also selling items from your gift shop. So many people are going to leave your hotel thinking that they should have bought a souvenir. Well, give them a chance to do so after leaving. Hooking up WooCommerce to a payment processor is fairly easy, and all of your products are displayed in a reasonable fashion. All of your amenities are showcased in image form, but people can click through to read more about them if needed. In addition, the rooms are completely bookable, with tons of information and pages that are pre-built for you to customize. The reservation module has fields for dates, times and the amount of people, expediting the process of getting a room and paying for it. The Hotelia WordPress theme includes a wide selection of widgets to choose from. For example, you could implement many of these widgets into the footer area, giving customers more information about your company and saving space in the process. One of the widgets collects email addresses from your users, building your database and giving you a chance to send out emails in the future. Along with contact information widgets, Flickr photo galleries and more, the Hotelia WordPress theme packs quite the punch.


Welcome Inn

Welcome Inn

   Info »  Demo »

Check out the Welcome Inn WordPress theme if you’re interested in making your company stand out from the various other hotels in the area. This is a simple, yet powerful option, with several premade styles for hotels with ski resorts, spas and more. The unlimited color options are great for choosing a color that matches with your logo. Uploading a logo happens from the WordPress dashboard, then you can grab the color picker to make everything else match with your logo. The responsive nature of the theme works great for customers that are on the go. An animated slider is packaged into the Welcome Inn theme, delivering a beautiful way to talk about your upcoming events, specials and attractions. We particularly enjoy it when hotels use the slider to talk about the surrounding area. After all, most people are coming to your hotel to experience the community. Therefore, it’s not a bad idea to explain what’s within walking distance. The reservation form can be placed on the homepage, but it also goes well on many of the pages on your website.

If you do insert the booking form on your website, it’s worth noting that all of the reservations are stored on the backend of your website. This way, you don’t have to talk on the phone as much with your customers, and each of the bookings are accounted for when customers check in. The built-in page layouts are a favorite with the Welcome Inn theme, considering you don’t have to design default pages that would generally show up on a hotel website. So, you don’t have to worry about making a pricing page or a room page for that matter. Take the room page layout and punch in descriptions, images, details and anything else you think would convince people to book a room. Shortcodes come along with the Welcome Inn theme, and a contact form is provided for people to send you messages and let you know if they have any questions about staying at your hotel. We like the multilingual nature of the theme, because so many people are going to come to your website from around the world. Therefore, it’s nice to give people a chance to understand the content on your site. Along with sidebars, white label branding and a beautiful one click installation, the Welcome Inn WordPress theme is one of our favorite hotel themes to try out.


HotelMotel

HotelMotel

   Info »  Demo »

The HotelMotel WordPress theme is a product from the folks at CSSIngiter. It delivers a solid set of features, with a stylish, funky new look that is bound to grab attention. Many of the colors are more playful than professional, so you may want to change them around, which is completely possible. The responsive layout works on just about any type of mobile device, giving people an opportunity to make bookings from wherever they want. The booking form connects with your backend so that you can plan for the people who are coming and see if you need to contact them for any reason. We like this booking management module because you no longer have to take hundreds of phone calls to fill up your rooms. The powerful shortcodes are a huge bonus because most developers are not looking to design elements like buttons and columns. This would require you to go into the custom CSS and make something from scratch. There’s no reason to reinvent the wheel, so we recommend going with these little snippets of code instead.

The custom widgets are mainly for social media spots, so you can implement little areas for Flickr, Twitter and more. These are great for connecting with your customers and giving them the content they want on social networks. It’s important for this to occur since most people are more likely to be on social media than they are on your website. Multiple color schemes are packaged into the HotelMotel theme, delivering you a beautiful layout with options for branding your site. We think this color picker is best for grabbing a color from your logo and matching it up. The entire HotelMotel theme is translation ready, so most people who come to your site are going to understand what you’re saying. So, if a Spanish speaking customer is trying to book a room, they shouldn’t have any problems with converting it from English to Spanish. Overall, the HotelMotel WordPress thing is a little less modern, but it does the trick for collecting reservations, showing people what your rooms look like and talking about what they can expect when they show up.


Hotel Magnolia

Hotel Magnolia

   Info »  Demo »

Hotel Magnolia is a beautiful full-screen theme with a prominent booking form that will allow your website visitors to filter through various options and check the availability of your rooms as soon as they land on the page. The menu at the bottom can be used to point your visitors to other pages on your website and the included blog page is a great way to feature events happening in your area or highlight special deals and promotions your hotel currently offers.

The theme includes the Visual Composer plugin which makes editing your website’s layout a breeze – simply drag and drop modules into place on any page of your website. Speed up your design process even more by importing demo content to get the structure in place and then simply replace it with your own images and descriptions. The theme is fully responsive and retina-ready which means your website will look great on any device. You can also easily change your theme colors and use any of the Google Fonts to create a completely unique brand.


Accommodation

Accommodation

   Info »  Demo »

Accommodation packs quite a punch both on the backend and the front end. The theme has several different layouts available for the homepage along with several different ways to include a booking form. You can choose to use Contact Form 7 or WooCommerce to handle your reservations. The theme can be used to set up a one-page website or a multipage website, depending on the needs of your hotel. Accommodation also includes a Google Map module which allows you to easily display your location and provide directions to your hotel.

The entire theme is fully responsive and can be customized through the theme options panel to match your hotel’s colors. Add custom Google Fonts to add a dash of elegance to your website and build powerful and unique page layouts with Visual Composer. The theme includes a newsletter signup form so you can easily stay in touch with your clients and remind them about special holiday offers. The form works flawlessly with MailChimp so sending out campaigns is a breeze. Finally, add extra visual appeal to your website with FontAwesome icons to highlight your best rooms and seasonal offers.


Wellness Spa - Resort and Spa WordPress Theme

Wellness Spa - Resort and Spa WordPress Theme

   Info »  Demo »

Wellness Spa is the perfect choice for spas, resorts, hair salons, massage parlors, and more. The theme features a gorgeous header slider which is the perfect place to highlight your best-selling packages and add a custom call to action to point your website visitors to your booking form or to get them to call you. The theme integrates with the Events Calendar plugin so you can easily display special offers. On top of that, the theme has full WooCommerce support so you can easily sell spa-related products on your website.

On the backend, the theme can be fully customized through the admin panel so you can easily tweak your website’s colors, fonts, add your own logo, and more. The Visual Composer plugin will allow you to tweak the layout on any of your pages and the translation-ready files allow you to translate your entire website and reach a global audience. Finally, the responsive design will make sure your website looks great on all devices.

Can you smell that? It’s the sweet scent of pastries, muffins and freshly baked bread. We all know what it’s like to walk into a bakery, but as a bakery or confectionery owner, how do you go about getting people into your shop in the first place? Well, it all starts with a well established online presence, meaning a website with beautiful imagery, menus and options for contacting the bakery. The thing about a bakery is that you’ll want to spend as much time actually baking goods as you can. Therefore, a website seems like a waste of money and time. However, there’s no need to worry about hiring an expensive developer. And you don’t need to have a development degree to construct your own website. All you need is a beautiful WordPress theme for bakeries to liven up your website. The cool part is that quite a few development companies create themes just for bakeries, with interesting demo content and layouts that are perfect for displaying information about your baking business.

Since there are so many themes on the market, we did the work for you and pieced together a solid list of bakery WordPress themes. These options offer more than simple informational platforms, since you receive responsive, nicely designed solutions for displaying food menus, sliders and more. What else were we looking for when putting together this list? To start, we wanted to locate the best themes that also provided options for potential reservations or quick orders. This means that forms are a must, and contact information needs to be shown in a clear area. As we stated before, mobile friendliness comes into play, considering many of your customers are going to be looking at your selection on their phones and tablets. Overall, the list of themes below has well coded options with beautiful designs. So, give them a try and watch your business expand.


WindCake - Sweet One Page Theme

WindCake - Sweet One Page Theme

   Info »  Demo »

The WindCake WordPress theme is a one page solution with a playful and powerful layout. The theme provides several color options for you to change them around and use for your own branding purposes. It’s fully responsive as well, giving users a chance to take out their mobile devices and scroll through your services, pictures and other information. The translation files may not seem like a big deal at first, but it’s wise to think about where your business is located. There’s bound to be some customers in the area who don’t speak your language, so it’s a nice bonus for them if they can go to your website and understand what is going on. The easy to customize theme offers Google Fonts for you to choose from. This means that all of your fonts will coincide with the color choices you make. It also improves the flexibility you have when developing call to actions and other text-based items throughout your site. Overall, it’s a wonderful bonus to have so many options when playing around with your fonts.

The widgetized homepage allows for you to have somewhat of a drag and drop interface. It’s not going to make everything super easy, but we like it because lots of people are more use to manipulating widgets than they are coding. The two minute install is one of the fastest on this list, turning the development process into a more enjoyable experience for both beginners and advanced users. The nine custom widgets are a handy addition, because they complete quite a few tasks for you, before even implementing plugins or other tools. Not to mention, several shortcodes are packaged into the WindCake WordPress theme. These little snippets of code basically give you the power to make items like buttons, columns and much more, all without touching any of the source code. Overall, if you like fun, one page layouts, the WindCake theme may be the one you’re looking for.


Bakery for Saving Tradition

Bakery for Saving Tradition

   Info »  Demo »

The Bakery for Saving Tradition WordPress theme comes from the folks at Template Monster, and it delivers a striking responsive layout for the mobile age. The fully editable design is all managed on the backend, and the custom post types include options like gallery, quotes and audio. Many developers forget just how important it is to have post types like this, because it enables you to generate blog post content that looks different for your users. The multilingual nature of the Bakery for Saving Tradition theme means that just about anyone can come to your site and read what you’re saying. For example, if your business is in a Polish neighborhood you may notice that lots of your customers don’t speak English. If this is the case, the translation files are ready to convert the English text to the right language. The over 80 shortcodes come into play when you’d like to build little items like columns and lists. They don’t take too long to implement, and the shortcodes are easy to place all over your website.

What’s more is that the theme has a two step installation process. We like this for every type of developer, since no one wants to spend 30 minutes simply getting the site launched on the WordPress platform. The multiple color options are useful for constructing the ideal branding strategy. For example, many companies take a logo and frame the site colors around the colors in that logo. Therefore, if you’re using a color picker you can grab a shade that works for your company. The filterable portfolio is an interesting feature in this theme, considering that most bakeries are probably not going to need a portfolio to impress clients. However, it also functions as a stunning gallery, where you can upload pictures of food and organize them in certain categories. The custom widgets include options for commenting and social sharing. Both are essential for building a community on your site and interacting with people who are interested in your business. Along with customized typography, fantastic sliders and an advanced backup tool, the Bakery for Saving Tradition WordPress theme has just about everything you need to get your bakery website up and running fast.


Frattini - Premium Service Theme

Frattini - Premium Service Theme

   Info »  Demo »

Check out the Frattini WordPress theme if you’re looking for a package with three themes bundled up into one. Basically, you can choose the layout you like best, which is a huge plus, because it goes for the price of a single theme. The AJAX contact form is one of those things that may not seem like a huge deal from the start. However, an AJAX form ensures that your contact form is always working, and it improves how well you can stay in touch with your customers. Not to mention, you don’t have to go out and install a third party contact form plugin that is only going to clutter your backend. The FlexSlider is one of the more versatile we’ve seen, with tools for placing text over your high resolution photos, along with options for buttons and tons of images. The Frattini WordPress theme provides both Google Fonts and Font Awesome icons. These both come into play when you’re trying to make your site more visual. The icons go well in columns when you’re talking about your products and services, while the fonts can be adjusted to match up with the logo you upload on the backend. Two of the themes in the package are for restaurants and coffee shops, but if you like those layouts better than the bakery one, you can most definitely configure them to look wonderful for your own shop.

Keep in mind that this is a one page WordPress theme, so all of your content remains on the homepage, besides the blog posts you create to interact with your customers and share helpful tips. One of the one page modules is there for exploring your menu and giving people prices, pictures and more. In addition to all of this, you may be looking for a tool that lets you show off the people behind the scenes. If you have multiple workers or chefs, an area on the homepage allows for images and descriptions for each of these people. You can even link to their personal social media pages to give them some credit and send some love their way. One of our favorite parts of the Frattini WordPress theme is the rotating bakery slider, which is meant for you to upload images of your hottest items, along with links, titles and prices. People can scroll through this to see your offerings, and then they can go to the reservation form to make an order. What’s nice is that the reservation form can pretty much be used for anything. If you’d like to hold birthday parties at your bakery, go for it! Testimonials are a big part of the theme as well, so you don’t really have to format anything when posting the quotes that your past customers have stated. Not to mention, quite a few widgets can be placed in the footer area. For example, you have the option to choose from Instagram, Pinterest and Twitter widgets.


Bakery - Best Selling Food Theme

Bakery - Best Selling Food Theme

   Info »  Demo »

Bakery is a powerful responsive theme designed for a bakery or a patisserie shop. It includes 2 different homepage layouts and custom page templates that make customizing your website a breeze. Bakery includes a stunning full-width slider so you can showcase your most popular products at the top of the page and immediately draw your customers in. The top bar is the perfect place to include your location and your phone number along with icons for your social media profiles. Manage your personnel and create custom order forms which make it easy to order your delicious cakes or fresh bread.

Different sections of your homepage can be used for additional information about your company, client testimonials, and to display your custom menu selection. The product page has several layouts available and the Visual Composer plugin makes it easy to edit any of those pre-made pages, as well as create custom layouts of your own. Shortcodes make it easy to add buttons, accordions, and other design elements. The theme options panel lets you customize any aspect of your theme for that perfect brand experience and the parallax effects will make a lasting impression on all your website visitors.
