What I’m seeing is an incredibly generic looking WordPress business website. It’s got ‘meh’ written all over it. The advertising copy says ‘unique design’ but this is almost uniquely…not unique. This looks like literally every other business site on the market. So what does it do to separate itself from the rest of the herd? I’ll try to find out.
What kind of features do you get with Liwo? Well, there’s a page builder plugin called Live Composer that helps you build pages in the front end, it’s fast and pretty simple to use. Liwo is responsive and mobile friendly, built on the Redux framework, so it’s 100% GPL. The installation is fast and user-friendly, mega-menu is supported, you can add custom backgrounds and more. With multiple pre-made layouts, you can choose one that’s ready to go or construct your own for even more flexibility. Liwo is translation ready with WPML support, there are tons of advanced blog options and more.
Here are some examples of Liwo in action out in the wild internet.
First up, the Richmond African American Scholarship Fund, which has created a really nice looking design with Liwo. They didn’t stray too far from the basic design, but they did a lot to make it look less…boring I guess? Maybe it’s about the images, the colors, some of the layouts, it just looks more interesting to me. See for yourself.
Hey, rework.inc, if you’re reading this, you may want to get rid of that little bug in your theme where the theme developer lets you pick between demo styles. Probably not great for the live site, na’am sayin?
Then there’s the site wattsnew.org, where they “provide the most reliable and efficient solar solutions at the most reasonable prices.” Makes a lot of sense.
Okay, we’ve seen enough, Liwo is a nice little theme, it appears to be flexible enough to work for a wide array of sites, but it just doesn’t have that ‘wow’ factor for me. Now, that’s not to say that a theme that’s just sort of ‘boring’ is a bad theme. Take our Quartz theme for instance, it’s a lot like a lot of other themes around, but it loads up lightning fast, it looks great and it’s flexible as hell. There’s nothing wrong with a theme that can do all of that.
So, a soft recommend for us. Let us know what you think in the comments below and we’ll be back soon with more great themes.
