Creatiz WordPress Theme Review
Whether you need a personal blog, landing page, one page site, event site, portfolio showcase, or a corporate website, Creatiz could be the only WordPress theme you need. I particularly like the layout, typography, and spacing of this theme. Those are all well thought out, and certainly give visitors a comfortable reading experience. Check out the sidebar, there is ample space for a 300×600 large skyscraper ad. There are few other things I like about this theme.
25 Built-in Skins – Many themes allow users to choose their own preferred colour, well, I’m not particular good at that. However, if you present me with a set of colour schemes, I can happily pick up the one that I like. And Creatiz theme comes with 25 built-in colour schemes, that’s very thoughtful.
Plain Text Logo – If you don’t have a logo or your logo is not ready, enable plain text logo. This is a very simple feature that most free themes would have. However, for many ThemeForest themes that I bought, many don’t have this feature, and they always request the user to upload a logo, a bit inconvenient eh?
Masonry Blog Style – This blog option allows you to have a grid based layout showing blog items in masonry format, you can select automatic or manual infinite scroll.
Animation / Parallax Scrolling – The theme comes with a few amazing features like Revolution slider, Parallax effect, and animation sequence / random effect on scrolling. Check out the demo and see which one you like.
Page Builder – The page builder is very comprehensive. When you build a page, just select the item you want from a pull down menu. Currently, Page builder is only available for the templates “Home” and “Fullwidth”.
How to setup your blog like the demo? The demo data is already included in the zip file. You can import the demo xml and play with that. However, you will also download many unnecessary files. If you want your site to look like the demo, you can try the followings: 1. Interface Settings: uncheck “Large Display”. 2. Styling Options, Footer: set Footer elements colour as #8a8d91, and Footer link hover state colour as #7cc576. 3. Typography: select Google font “Varela Round”.
Overall, this theme looks great, a 5 star product. So far, I haven’t yet encountered any problem, I’m pretty happy with this theme purchase.
11-13 I’m unable to upgrade to version Creatiz 1.0.6, there are some unzip and installation errors. It is not a good idea to buy this theme for now. Support seems to be a bit slow nowadays, hope they will sort things out soon.
06-10-14 Where to download Creatiz theme? Where is Creatiz WordPress theme? If you already purchased or plan to buy Creatiz theme, you will notice that the sales page is no longer there, the warning message is “Download not available. Item removed by either staff or the author”. And it has been like that for quite a while. So, few days ago, I decided to visit their support site, posted a note, and finally I received their latest stable version 1.0.9. by email within a day. This version is compatible to WordPress 3.9.
