Breeze, Appealing Retro Style Blog Theme

www.bluthemes.com-Breeze

Life can be a breeze, if you’re ready to bring the heat every single day.  That’s what a theme like Breeze can do for you, make your life as a blogger much simpler than you could possibly have imagined.

The Breeze WordPress theme combines up to date Bootstrap 3 responsive style with simple customization options that help you build a website that is both highly user-friendly and aesthetically impressive. Every site visitor will feel welcomed to your company, agency or personal portfolio site and be able to navigate easily to find all the content they want.

With over 1500 sales so far, and counting, Breeze is still a very popular theme for bloggers who want a simple, almost retro feel.  That’s not to say that Breeze is dated, I don’t think that’s the case at all, but it is an old school theme that has a feel of yesteryear.  Maybe I am saying it’s dated?

But the reviews keep pouring in and this theme seems to be about as popular as it ever was, so they must be doing something right, right?  Flat, minimalist, fast loading, those are some of the positives that keep coming out again and again when folks are reviewing this theme.  They also cite the smooth setup and great support.  That brings peace of mind.

Non-developers will find it easy to change each page of a site using the Breeze WP theme with the 14 different widgets, 10 unique shortcodes and the intuitive custom options panel. While Breeze has been featured with other minimalist-style alternatives before, it stands out as an excellent option for those who want an easily launched but remarkable website.  Breeze was built to make constructing a personal blog, with a minimalist and clean layout, simple enough for even a beginner to achieve with ease.

RaiseApp

RaiseApp is a full fledged business template and creative agency WordPress theme that really means business.  And pleasure too, with a coffee shop demo style included.  Let’s take a look at what the RaiseApp template developer (XThemeApollo) has to say about this app promo theme.

As a RaiseApp is a multi-purpose wordpress theme so it developed for all types for business such as corporate, creative, insurance, construction, digital agency, online store, coffee bistro, salons, repair shop, factory, industry, Service Business, Manufacturing Business etc.  RaiseApp also has drag & drop page builder and slider editor based on timeline which you can create/update your splendid pages easily and faster. No Coding Skill Required.  RaiseApp is tested on all real devices (iPhone, iPad, Android, Tablet, Mini-PC, Desktop) by a highly skilled tester and RaiseApp looks perfect. We hope so you will feel happy with this WordPress theme.

Okay, that’s what they have to say, but I’ll be the ultimate judge of this theme.  When you hear the sales hype, it’s easy to get distracted, but the proof is in the pudding.  Whatever that means.  I really have no idea.

Okay, now, here are a handful of demo previews.  The main demo, there’s an online store and a corporate site.  On the creative side of things, a digital agency.  Then there are some very specific themes, a construction company and a coffee shop style.  I like it so far.  Let’s get further into this theme.

raiseapp.xthemeapollo.com-RaiseApp – Multi Purpose WordPress Theme(1)

That’s what they’ve created so far, but they’re planning to release a bunch more great looking demo sites as time goes by, so check back for more updates.  These theme makers are smart, they wait to see if a theme is a hit, then they can crank out a ton more demo sites for different niche markets.  Look for stuff like a gym or personal trainer, flower shop, jewelry store and other very specific markets.

Okay, on to the review proper.

So, what does the RaiseApp theme come with?  For one thing, one click installation and demo data with powerful theme options, multiple premium plugins are included and this responsive theme also includes great looking dark and light styles.  There are a ton of visual composer addons, eight shop and category layouts, fifteen different menu styles, seven page titles, almost a dozen blog page templates and a lot more.  This theme does have a ton of options.

You know I love to check how fast a theme works, so let’s hit the Pingdom checker, whattya say?  This is from the Main Dark demo, so it’s not doing their demo splash page.  Just for reference.

From San Jose, it’s unbelievably slow.  Performance grade is a B, but it took over 7 seconds to load up the first try.  Almost 100 requests is far too many for my taste.

tools.pingdom.com-Website speed test

And I did it again but didn’t do a screencap, only slightly better the second go around, it loaded up in 6.63 seconds.  That’s a glacial pace.  Something needs to be done, you’re not going to rank for anything with that type of page load times.  But hey, they offer free installation, which is a nice touch.  For $39, a pretty reasonable price, maybe this one could be worth it for somebody?

Check back later for more updates on great themes.

Delict, Minimalist WordPress Theme for Creative Agencies

This theme is called Delict and that, of course reminds me of Derelicte, from Zoolander.  I’m not sure Delict would be a name I’d have chosen for a WordPress theme I spent months developing.  But I don’t know, they’re probably going for a portmanteau of, I don’t know, delicious and select?  That sort of vibe, I believe, is what they’re aiming for.  I’ll be the judge of whether or not they’ve achieved it.

Delict is a portfolio theme, it’s meant for creative agencies, freelancers, small to medium public relations or marketing companies.  You get the picture.  The type of place where everybody rides a fixie to work and buys beard oil.  Yes, even the women.

Here are a couple of thumbnails of two versions of the homepage, meant for creative agencies.  The first one is super clean, definitely a strong minimalist theme.

Delict WordPress portfolio theme

And here’s a couple more.  I like the simple, clean, grid design of the second one.  The masonry style of the first one, it feels too busy for me, so I probably won’t recommend this theme in our collection of grid themes for WordPress.

Delict is a minimal and clean WordPress Theme for creative professionals such as graphic & web designers, creative agencies, freelancers, photographers, graffiti artists and visual artists in general.

This beautiful minimal design is based on fine typography, bold colors and large photography. Delict is modern theme comes with well managed theme that you can use to show your works and talents to the world in a unique and elegant way.

However, we felt that responsive design was something else we wanted to make even better for you. Even better for the web. Make sure our theme is fully responsive!

So, that’s it for our review of the Delict theme.  Hopefully somebody found this as interesting as I did.

Seniman

Seniman calls itself a modern portfolio theme.  I like the sound of that and at first glance, it’s a really good call.  This theme is a totally fresh take on what a portfolio can be, big and striking typography, dark and bold images.  Seniman was developed by Themes Awesome and they’re really known in the WordPress world for great designs and solid features.  So far so good, this theme has been downloaded almost a dozen times in the first few days on the market.

It’s going to be huge.

Let’s have a look at Themes Awesome’s take on their own Seniman theme.

Seniman is Modern Portfolio WordPress Theme that suitable for Designer, Freelancer or Artist. Seniman uses drag and drop page builder for built the page elements, make you easier to arrange your layout. This theme also served with extensive theme options. With header builder and footer options, we create every one of theme have their controls. Every choices is in you.

Okay, thanks for the introduction ThemesAwesome.  Let’s take a look at what Seniman looks like on the screen.  This is the first look.  The layout is really nice, the typography is an attention getter for creatives and designers.  Freelancers will definitely benefit and I think small design firms could too.

Seniman Creative WordPress Theme

Here’s the second look at a different style for the home page.

Seniman Creative WordPress Theme Designers

Just a little different, good for images that are off center.  And finally, a third look that’s much more WordPress personal blog style than the fullscreen, graphically eye catching designs of the first two styles.

Seniman Creative WordPress Theme Artists and Bloggers

I really, really like the style of this theme.  It’s strong but not overbearing.  I think it’s going to be a huge hit in the last quarter of 2017 and into next year.

So, here we go, the features and functions list.  Seniman has a responsive design, which is no surprise.  It’s almost 2018, you have to have a responsive design.  SEO optimized, which we’ll get to in a minute.  Google fonts power the typography, there are 10 different page builder addon blocks, like heading titles, testimonials, team, contact, gallery and client blocks.  Plenty more too.

You’ve got a variety of page templates, post formats for video, gallery and standard posts.  Multiple header, footer and content options.  The theme looks great, right?  I think so anyway.  But, now’s the moment of truth.

How about the speed check, see if this thing really is SEO optimized.

Seniman WordPress Speed Check

Wow, it’s been a while since a theme actually loaded up fast.  I’ve had a run of really slow loaders.  This one loads up fast.  A respectable 68 requests and a sub-two second load time, which is nice.  Remove query strings from static resources and it’ll probably load up even quicker.  I’m going to give this theme the thumbs up in terms of speed, I bet it really will load up fast and look great as it does it.

WordPress Themes for Coffee Shops

We’ve taken a few days doing nothing but looking at websites and drinking coffee.  Maybe I need to sleep?  Anyway, I think these are some great looking websites that use WordPress and they’re all about coffee.  If you check them out, I think you’re going to find these are some of the better looking sites around.  We think so at least.

Never Coffee

4243 SE Belmont St., 541-223-3580, nevercoffeelab.com. 6 am-7 pm daily.

(Jake Southard)

Never Coffee is sort of a part branding project and part coffee shop, this cozy little cafe started when an advertising agency needed something to do with their storefront in their new home on Belmont Avenue in Portland, Oregon.  Well, when pushed to figure something out, great ideas often arise, right?  Well, this agency decided to go with a coffee shop and it’s a pretty solid plan.

Never coffee is a great looking space and the website is even better, simple and effective.

Deadstock Coffee

408 NW Couch St., 971-506-5903, deadstockcoffee.com. 7:30 am-4 pm Monday-Friday, 11 am-6 pm Saturday.

(Megan Nanna)
(Megan Nanna)

Lined with one-of-a-kind sneakers and vintage basketball posters, Deadstock coffee house is a special kind of place where you can get your rare sneakers cleaned by a professional, all the while sipping on a special concoction called a LeBronald Palmer, which is a rare drink and a take on the classic Arnold Palmer, which is a mixture of Iced Tea and Lemonade.  The LeBronald is really delicious and well worth a try if you’re in that neck of the woods.

More Free Themes

For fun, I’ve been looking around for new free themes, check out these demo sites, you’ve got a simple portfolio theme called Empire.  There’s Montana, which is a crystal clear portfolio theme.  King is a wonderful WooCommerce ready theme, Quartz and Mercury are both stylish personal blog themes that could be great for almost any type of blog site and Silverbow is a well made WooCommerce ready shop theme that’s very simple to set up and is also modern and minimalist.  So, I’m glad I took the time to look for these types of themes this week and I’ll be back soon enough with more awesome WordPress finds.
