Supercharge Your Website with the Monstroid WordPress Theme
The best thing about WordPress is that you can use it to build more than just a blog: be it corporate sites, portfolio sites, magazines or even an eCommerce store, with the right set of tools and tweaks, WordPress can handle it all.
Of course, you can code and customize WordPress to build your websites, but what if you are presented with a professional theme that is a powerhouse in its own right? Something that is so flexible you’re not limited by pre-defined layouts and can quickly and easily create any type of niche site you want?
If this sounds like something you might be interested in, then the Monstroid WordPress theme has been built for you!
Describing itself as “WordPress Theme on Steroids”, Monstroid is what you would use if you wish to quickly build and deploy a WordPress website, but have no time to code or work with PSDs.
In simple words, it is one of those powerful theme frameworks or visual builders that comes with its own set of custom skins, layouts, styles and child themes. But as you will soon see, Monstroid has a lot more to offer that other themes do not.
Monstroid comes packaged with multiple ready-made child themes (17 at the moment, with 10 more added each month) and layouts to get you started quickly. Need a restaurant website? Yes, there is a child theme for that. A masonry layout? Of course, you got it!
Monstroid is probably one of the most multipurpose and truly versatile themes out there that can cater to any niche of websites.
While many other theme frameworks come with their own drag and drop tools, and Monstroid does not have much new to innovate here, it has certain USPs that might not be found elsewhere: how about an in-built CSS minifier, eCommerce integration and a backup option?
There are two key tools that come with Monstroid that you will not find packaged with any other theme, they are Shortcode Template Editor and Static Area Builder.
The Shortcode Template Editor allows you to create and customize multiple variations of shortcode templates, so that you’re not limited by default templates, and the Static Area Builder is responsible for positioning your header and footer elements exactly the way you want.
Monstroid also offers a selection of premium plugins: you get the Moto Slider and Moto Editor plugins for sliders and front-end tweaking respectively, as well as plugins for live chat, custom shortcodes, portfolio post types, and so on.
All in all, you have 20+ premium plugins at your disposal, plus tight integration with popular ones such as WooCommerce, Yoast SEO, and BuddyPress. And of course, it goes without saying that Monstroid is localization ready, fully responsive, well documented (video tutorials available), and integrates well with social media.
And just in case you are still looking for a reason why Monstroid is worth your time, it also comes bundled with over 50 licensed images — all royalty-free, available for you to use in your websites and projects without paying a penny!
Mode of Operation
Now that you know that Monstroid is a WordPressa theme that’s worthy of your time, how about we actually give it a spin?
I installed and activated the Monstroid installation wizard plugin on my test site running WordPress 4.3
Thereafter, the theme’s installation is a breeze: the installation is automated, and you just need to click the fancy installation button. You will, however, need to enter the activation key while installing the theme. Just in case you are wondering, one license key serves a maximum of three domains.
Once all is done, you will see many new areas and sections in the WordPress admin panel. Since the plugins and other functionality is documented anyway, I will be focusing on the theme itself.
After activation, I went straight to the Monstroid Dashboard to check out the theme. However, the real action happens right within the Cherry Framework: you can build static pages, customize shortcode templates, or just edit the layout as per your needs.
You can, virtually, tweak every aspect that you can think of: typography, navigation, layout, header, footer, and so on.
It is well worth the effort to spend some time and setting up the theme via the Cherry Framework. That said, the theme also offers MotoPress Content Editor, so front-end editing is also not off the table.
With any purchase of Monstroid, you will get 24/7-lifetime support and updates. It also comes with chat support directly integrated into the WordPress admin panel.
So, in the unlikely event you are having any issues with the theme, you don’t need to create a support ticket and have to wait for hours or days, like other theme support systems, for a response. You can simply ask your question in chat and get it answered ASAP.
The Monstroid WordPress theme costs $79 for a Single Site License. For that price you will receive a huge collection of niche WordPress themes, all of the bundled content, over 100 PSD files, 17+ child themes, and 20+ plugins — $79 is surely a justified price.
Monstroid is one of the most feature-rich and powerful WordPress themes out there, and if you are someone who needs a theme that can take your website to the moon and back, Monstroid is what you are looking for!
