In the past months and years, I have build a long list of WordPress sites. It’s the CMS of choice for most companies these days – they simply recognise the popularity and trust the software. With the popularity of WordPress and it’s thriving theme business, there’s almost as many themes out there as there are websites. Same good, some bad, some ugly. And a few stand outs that are rock solid from design and architecture to performance. I want to feature a few of the theme I have worked with and found to be real workhorses and in most cases groundbreaking!
For the first post in the series, let’s look at Enfold.

The theme is built on top of the Avia Framework and offers support for the WPML Multi Language plugin – in case you need it!
This is a responsive theme, able to adapt its layout to the screen size of your visitors. The slideshows for this theme are touch enabled and hardware accelerated, which means they are working super sleek on mobile device like ipad or iphone!

The theme is built with SEO best practices in mind. It uses clean, semantical and valid HTML code and CSS so search engines can index the content of your site with ease. Important content is always placed before unimportent in your source code (eg: Blog Post content before Sidebar), Headlines are wrapped in heading tags (h1, h2, h3 etc) to signalise their importance to search engines.
The site also uses heavy internal site linking, which is also of vital for search engines (related posts, primary and secondary navigation menus, footer navigation, etc) With this WordPress Template you are well equipped to get a high google ranking and attract visitors to show them your fantastic work ;)
