CHOOSE A WORDPRESS THEME

There are 1,197,982,359 websites in the World as of January 2021. *Information has been updated on 24 February 2021. This huge number of websites are mostly build on the WordPress platform ( 40% of all websites). Before you are able to even start creating your desired website there are some choices to be made first. All choices depend on your coding skills or the absence of any HTML or CSS knowledge.

WordPress is a content management system, but we didn’t really explain what that means. A content management system, often abbreviated as CMS, is software that helps you create, manage, and modify content on a website without needing to interact directly with the code.

So this is the way to go for ‘dummies’ like myself! So just to inform you about the global site ranking, just see the info below.

WordPress enables you to import any wordpress theme for further setup. Your website’s choice must be based on its actual use and styling. If you want to setup a e-shop, you’ll need to be able to implement Woocommerce and such. First impressions count in real life not only for people but also for a websites popularity based on looks and content.

Now the fun part starts: The hunt for the ideal website ! Well there is no ideal website really as each is a standalone creation of its maker. When browsing the internet and checking all theme developers you are looking for ‘the needle in the hay stack’, as the number is huge and they all look great on the image, but don’t inform you of all adjustable settings or when they do, use the best images to please the clients eyes and brain. It’s a nightmare searching for a great WordPress theme, I can assure you it’s not easy. It depends on trial and error to finally find end up with a theme that actually satisfies all your wishes.

Okay, so you’ve decided and pay your hard earned money for the theme and import it in WordPress expecting a similar look as presented by the developer when opening your new Url for the first time. And my god, you will be so disappointed as there’s nothing to show on your screen besides a welcome message and some Latin text. This is where your own creativity comes in use from now on to design your own visualized website. You will find the need of eye popping images and many plugins to get started. All themes available for WordPress paid or free are made with set coding for height/width of images in every site-section. You will NOT find a section looking exactly the way you wished it to look. Changing any section or parts of section rely’s on custom CSS code to make it behave to your needs. Themeisle offers some great themes like Hestia Pro and Zelle Pro which are top rated themes, loaded with options and brilliant doc’s to help you out.

Our website is build with Hestia Pro theme and many custom CSS adjustments. You will not easily find a better documented theme to buy that will satisfy, and is backed with very good service when you need special CSS code for adjustment. I tried many themes as they looked good from the presented image but were too limited or too complicated. Themeisle’s themes work for me very well and I created lots of sites using Themeisle themes.

 

The customizer of Hestia or Zelle is brilliant and easy to use. The customizer is where all your customizing takes place, and you’re also able to implement Elementor as your customizing plugin. Mind you, that when using plugins other than the included ,you might face some compatibility issues creating some undesired problems. Don’t use ‘nulled’ plugins, but buy when you have too. The CSS section in any Themeisle theme is where you add CSS code to alter any feature. For must users writing the CSS code is a No Go area as they don’t have the knowledge to write the right code. Themeisle will offer buyers personalized CSS-code and offer a fantastic ‘Custom Codes‘ section where most problems are tackled in an easy to understand way. It is all made with the end-user in mind to keep service on top level.

Once you tried many themes, you will definitely appreciate a developer like Themeisle and their product line. One of the bonus plugins you are prompted to install is Orbit Fox, the ThemeIsle multipurpose plugin that add blocks for the Gutenberg editor and other features.  The Orbit Fox modules are nice convenience features.

 

 

Features of Hestia Pro and others are useful, nice and easy to implement. The Portfolio section only works when you add the JetPack plugin which I found to make some problems in the Customizer ‘header section’ . Hestia and Zelle also work well with Woocommerce and all payment options. These themes will work for most people and offer value for money.

 

VISUALIZER PLUGIN

Plugins are a vital part of any website, creating needed additional features like SEO, E-Shop Woocommerce to name a few basic plugins. Themeisle provides some nice plugins like Visualizer which we also use to visualize graphs for our website. Its the Excel like feature to create responsive, fully-customizable tables and charts, edit them directly on your posts with our excel-like editor or import the data from your database.

Visualizer is more than just a graph as it is responsive to ‘hover’ actions to present a sophisticated image. It has15 Chart Types available in the Pro version.

 

INTERACTIVE CHARTS
SYNCHRONIZE DATA AUTO
CREATE CHARTS FROM POST/PAGES
CUSTOMIZE PERMIS OF CHARTS
ADVANCED TABLES

Create interactive charts and customize their colors, design and behavior.

 

 

 

 

Create schedules to synchronize your charts with your online files (CSV, Google Sheets) or databases

 

 

 

You can create charts based on information of your WordPress installation, such as the number of posts, pages or attachments you have. This could be done for your own knowledge or if you’d like to publicize these to your users.

 

 

Using the Permission feature you can control who can view or edit your charts. You can allow only certain editors to modify charts, or you can allow anyone (even visitors) to modify the data on-page!

 

 

Add advanced interaction controls to your HTML tables: pagination, instant search, filter results by text search, multi-column ordering, and many more features!

 

 

Visualizer is by far the best Charts plugin for WordPress. To me a very good plugin needs to without any learning curve, but just usable to play around with for anybody. Again like the themes there is very documentation available to for instance use ‘two axis charts’ as one axis is the basic simple chart-type.

If you are looking for a great theme or plugin with very good support then visit Themeisle and get your wallet out !
