While it’s true that each industry and business has its own challenges and needs, the WordPress theme market hasn’t always recognized this. So often, themes are released with promises of fitting every possible use case.
However, one developer is taking a different approach. Stylemix Themes, an Envato Power Elite Author, has recently put out four new themes – each one taking aim a specific industry or use. This will enable designers to choose a theme that matches their project, rather than attempt to bend and shape an all-purpose theme to fit.
Each of these new themes offers functionality that goes along with their intended use. Today, we’ll take a look at each theme and show you what it does and who it’s for.
When you think about it, BeTop covers a wide range of industries. However, they all have something in common: Groups or individuals who provide services that help people achieve their goals. Think of motivational speakers, yoga instructors, fitness or business coaches.
BeTop capitalizes on this synergy by offering up eight demo sites for different use cases. They have different looks and layouts, along with the ability to be easily customized. Complex page layouts are easy to achieve with the Elementor page builder plugin, for which BeTop includes over 20 custom modules.
You’ll also find a complete booking system included with the theme. This allows users to make appointments online and provide payment. On top of that, custom styles for WooCommerce mean that you can sell products and still maintain a consistent look and feel.
Other features include a weekly schedule listing (ideal for businesses that have a set routine), an events calendar with RSVP capabilities, a custom header/footer builder and 23 custom widgets.
Introduced in WordPress 5.0, the Gutenberg block editor allows content creators to do more. Adding multimedia features and even multiple columns to a post are now possible without any plugins or hacks. GutenMag is a theme designed for publishers who want to take advantage of this new capability.
Rather than come bundled with a standard page builder plugin, GutenMag instead includes 12 custom Gutenberg blocks. Plus, it fully supports all of the standard blocks that come with the editor. Also included are a variety of different post styles to help you get just the right look for your content.
Demos include layouts for online magazines ranging from tech, news, lifestyle, fashion and more. Focusing on the needs of publishers, GutenMag is also 100% compatible with Google AMP and Mobile First Indexing. This is a big deal when it comes to serving mobile users and SEO.
Also included are a header/footer builder, a GDPR compliance plugin, parallax and video backgrounds and WooCommerce support.
Online travel booking has become a huge part of the hospitality industry. It’s something users simply expect to have in this day and age. With the Hotello theme, you’ll find everything you need to get up and running, including the ability to take reservations.
The reservation capabilities have been built to serve the unique needs of hotels, bed and breakfasts and resorts. You can, for instance, implement seasonal pricing and custom check-in/check-out times. Taxes and fees can be handled at checkout. There is a great deal of flexibility when it comes to how reservations are set up and handled.
While you set things up to fit your needs on the back end, guests can search the front end for available rooms. There are a number of different room templates that allow you to display features such as photo galleries and amenities.
Plus, you’ll find more useful features like a real-time weather widget, lots of available theme options and a bundled copy of Visual Composer.
Companies in the industrial sector need a website that allows them to showcase their capabilities and professionalism. Manufacturer WP is a theme tailored to that task and offers a complete solution for manufacturers and more.
It all starts with the Elementor Page Builder plugin. Manufacturer WP includes 150+ prebuilt blocks, 50+ widgets and 40+ page templates for Elementor. They focus on specific aspects of business: services, projects, market research, portfolios and eCommerce. This enables you to effortlessly show the world the strengths of your company.
And since there are a wide range of niches in this category, Manufacturer WP has bundled in demo sites that cater to various specialties. You’ll find demos for machinery and equipment, textiles, food, electronics and retail products.
Plus, you’ll also find handy features such as a custom map, Instagram widget and WooCommerce compatibility.
