Among the WordPress users, basic or custom, WordPress themes have been gaining popularity among the masses for a CMS platform or a blog platform, free or paid themes, it offers great support for all the right reasons.


With more than 70% of bloggers using WordPress around the globe, there are more and more themes being introduced for WordPress Websites. Here, I have culled out a few themes in order to introduce a sense of nautical approach and make the most of WordPress development.

The Arbor of Hamburger

Hamburger Menus – a popular trend that has gained popularity among WordPress Developers as the hottest WordPress theme. The Hamburger menus, although having two sides, one that is for the Hamburger Menus and one set that does not subscribe to is used. The biggest benefit of Hamburger Menus is that you can tuck away all the navigation behind a single icon. Now, we see these Menus around many CMS platforms, especially on mobile websites. But, as its new, the web users are getting used to its experience and there still a gap which needs to be bridged.

Thus, it may not be able to compete with those themes or menus that people have been using for long. Here, the biggest benefit is also the drawback as the navigation is tucked behind one icon, sometimes users are clueless about the browsing the website. It does not provide a roadmap, it does not take the user through the main points of the website. But, of course, offers a very neat, simplistic look for the website. Moreover, if developers or the website owner wishes to bring focus to a particular aspect, offer or features, they could have it on the landing page or home page or enable the a button to take the user to that page.

The Adaptive Responsive Sites

With the increasing number of mobile users, the need to adapt to mobile devices has become a necessity. Here, responsive websites are playing a huge role in enabling users to browse while on the go and also saving website owners from spending on a mobile app. It is so adaptive that it can be configured in order to be viewed across multiple devices.

WordPress offers many responsive themes that can prepare your CMS platform for viewing on mobile, desktop or a tablet. Also, a right selection of themes can offer seamless performance for browsing along with performance. Being responsive aids in converting sales and also helps in enhancing online presence. Responsive website is here to stay even though a mobile first generation has taken over, its importance will not reduce.

The Motion Portion

Since motion graphics have taken over the web design industry, developers are able to do much more interesting things in website development and creation of effective and interactive user interface. In the last year, we saw full page backgrounds in website design with videos and motion graphics. And this indeed became a trend among CMS developers. In the coming times, users are expected to see even more visual friendly designs where motion graphics, videos and images will be blended with parallax scrolling, pop notification to spine, hover tools and interesting loading bars.

These small elements in a website contribute to the overall experience of the user and also guide the user through the website.

How to Select WordPress themes?

To select a good WordPress theme, the following points you need to insure. In case you are finding it difficult, you must consult a Freelance WordPress Developer or WordPress Development Specialist.

  • Look for Simplicity
  • Provides Browser Compatibility
