PressCoders offers a clean and highly customizable WordPress themes for business, portfolio and personal websites. Now you can get 20% off all PressCoders themes.
PressCoders is a website which sells premium themes for WordPress. Not only do they offer demonstrations which are just fixed instances of fake sites using the theme, they also offer you to try your own demo, in the form of a fully functional theme download for free. It doesn’t have all the fancy bells and whistles, but you might not even need them, depending on your purpose.
The demo for the theme which is also offered for free, Designfolio, shows some of the key features looking good. There is a big media slider underneath the header, which can contain videos, images, text, etc. Underneath there are a few icons, where different projects could go. It is a little bit cluttered for a portfolio, if that is what it is meant to be, but it would do the job just fine. There are better portfolios to be found on the stunning Graph Paper Press, which remain one of my strong favorites.
Designfolio, like many other themes around nowadays is fully responsive and has a fluid layout which allows it to easily adapt to mobile devices and tablets. That will stop being a novelty and start to become the industry standard, soon. I hope, anyway. Not that I ever use internet on a mobile device, but it’s for the best that it all fits on one, easy to digest screen.
As soon as I got past the innocuous looking Designfolio, I stumbled upon a world of rubbish. Garish themes such as FitX and FitPro do nothing for this brand’s image. The demos are set up to show you that they will do nothing for your image either, unless your brand of fitness training is a nostalgic 90s workout, the website will look highly out of place. With lens flare layers and shining metal headers, it succeeds in looking terrible. $149? I’m not sure if that’s sad or hilarious. Surprisingly, FitPro is shown on their showcase, having been bought by an Australian personal trainer. She’s stripped down pretty much everything and just kept the bare bones of the site. That’s a clever design call, when faced with the horror of the original. In fact, FitPro seems to be one of their bestselling themes! I guess people have different taste to me, or have a better imagination when they shop.
