Themify Ultra Theme Review
One main thing I loved about ultra is its customization control. You could easily customize each section of your WordPress blog and make it truly your’s!
Here’s a short video of the theme.
So if you are a pure beginner who doesn’t need to mess up with codes and in the background, Ultra will be a perfect option for you.
The features offered by Themify Ultra is awesome. And in this section, we are going to cover the main features of the Ultra WordPress theme.
#1. Introducing Themify Builder!
If you are working with WordPress for a while, you probably know plugins like Beaver Builder, Elementor, WPBakery Page Builder. Those are the best WordPress page builder plugins available in the market.
Themify Builder is compatible with all their WordPress themes. You can start customizing the theme right away. The best part is, you don’t need to write a single line of code!
You can customize your blog from the front-end or back-end. We recommend you customize it from the front-end. So, you can see exactly what you’ll get after customization.
Some of the famous features Themify Builder offers are:
- Undo/ Redo.
- Copy/ Paste.
- Import/ Export.
When you open the website from the front-end, you can see the turn-on builder button.
And you can see the editor in the next page load.
By clicking on the + icon, you can see all the available modules. You can drag them from there, drop in the field for adding it in your blog.
You can also edit the current modules. Just double-click on any element you need to edit.
Edit the content and click on save. It will reflect on your website almost instantly.
Another thing we loved is the animation.
There are so many animations are available in the builder. You can choose your favorite one and save the settings.
#2. Use it for any Multipurpose Website
Ultra is not made for a specific WordPress niche. It is a multipurpose WordPress theme. Means, the theme can be used on any niche websites and easily integrate it with the topic.
Some of the popular niches use Ultra are:
#3. Installation and Activation
As it is a premium WordPress theme, you won’t be able to install it directly from the WordPress themes repository. You need to upload it manually to your WordPress blog or by using an FTP Client such as FileZilla.
Here, we are going to show you the easy way to do it – upload it manually without using any FTP access.
First of all, go to the Appearance, themes section. Then, click on the add new theme button.
Log in to your Themify account, download the latest version of Themify Ultra. Then, choose the ZIP file from your local storage and simply install it.
Once you got installed the theme, you need to activate it.
Since you are installing this theme for the first time, you will be redirected to a page something like this.
#4. 25+ Pre-made Skins
If you don’t want to create a custom design, you can easily import it from the pre-made demo templates.
In our case, we are going to import the APP template. Just select the demo and click on import.
For completing the demo importing they might want supportive add-ons or plugins. Here, you can see that I need to install the Builder Contact and the Pricing Table add-ons.
All the add-ons will be available in your Themify account. Just download it manually and install it on your blog. And after completing the importing, your website would look exactly like the demo!
If you don’t like the demo, you will get an option for erasing the current one.
And by doing this, you can bring the website to your previous state. It is a great feature.
#5. 60+ Page Templates
No matter you are running a magazine blog or a food blog. Themify got created 60+ templates and you will be able to import it to your blog within seconds.
#6. Six Archive Layouts
If you are using a custom blog page, that’s considered as an archive page. Also, the categories page, tags page, author page are also considered as archive pages. In most themes, you won’t be able to set a custom archive layout.
Well, in here, you will get six custom archive layout options.
#7. Integrated Theme Panel
Most WordPress themes are offering a theme panel these days. It will help us to customize the WordPress theme quickly in some simple mouse clicks. You will get one here too.
There, you could see four main configurations.
- The Theme Settings.
- Skins and Demos.
Themify Theme settings are the main configuration center. Making changes there would reflect sitewide.
You can see configurations like:
- Google Map.
- Icon Font.
Now under the Skins & Demos section, you can see all the available demos that can be imported to your live WordPress installation.
Just like we did before, you can install/ erase any demo that you need or installed.
The Transfer section will help us to import the theme settings to our blog or export the current theme settings to any other blog. This can be helpful when you need the same settings in any other blog.
From the updates section, you can easily update the theme to the latest version available.
We highly recommend you keep the theme updated to the latest version. Themify is adding more features and fixing new bugs in every new update. All you need to do is just sign in with your Themify account there.
Once you have done this, you will receive automatic updates. You can easily update the products right from the WordPress updates page. Don’t need to use any FTP clients or anything.
#8. WooCommerce Optimized
By using WordPress and WooCommerce, we can easily create an online shop. It will take only 30 minutes for configuration and adding the first product. By using a theme which is optimized for WooCommerce, we can easily increase conversions!
And as you thought, Themify Ultra is 100% optimized for WooCommerce. You can easily run an online shop using the theme. There will be no compatibility issues.
#9. Theme Customizer
We all love to make custom WordPress designs. So, Themify will help you to customize each and every inch of your WordPress blog. In the WordPress customizer, you can see the theme’s customization options.
And in those settings, you will see the basic, advanced customization opportunity.
Expanding each option will help you to configure that section individually. The good point is, everything will be visible in front of your eyes!
#10. Google Fonts Integrated
The folks got integrated almost all Google Fonts to the website. From the WordPress customizer, you can easily choose the font that you need to use in your blog.
If you prefer adding custom fonts manually or via Typekit, you need to use third-party plugins.
However, in most cases, Google Fonts are good enough for your website. More than 600 Google Fonts are available through the customizer.
License & Pricing
Right now, Themify got three pricing options.
- Standard – $59 a year – Themify Ultra + 12 Builder Add-ons.
- Developer – $69 a year – Themify Ultra + 12 Builder Add-ons + PSD Files.
You could choose a plan according to your use. Normally personal bloggers just need the Standard plan.
But when you represent a web development agency who will craft WordPress websites for clients, you may want to consider purchasing the Master Club. I am pretty sure that the investment would be worth it.
On top of that, the team offers a 30-days money-back guarantee. So if you are not happy with the theme, you can easily ask for a refund. The team will issue a refund, and you can move forward.
But, I am pretty sure that you won’t go for the money-back thing. Once you started using it, you will love the theme.
Support and Updates
You can always contact the Themify team using the contact form.
You can contact the folks for pre-sale questions, bug fixes, refunds, account upgrading/ downgrading, etc.
When you need quick theme support, easily contact them using the forum. That’s the fastest way to get support for technical issues.
Thousands of issues are already listed there. When you can’t find your issue there, simply create a new topic. One of their support team will get back to you with a solution.
When you need personal assistance, just contact the team via direct mailing. And that’s how you can get one-on-one support from the author team.
Each premium plans comes with 1-year of support and updates. So, after expiring the premium license, you might want to consider it renewing. For keeping your WordPress blog safe from hacks and vulnerability, we highly recommend you updating your WordPress core, themes, plugins to the latest version available.
So, you couldn’t get updates when you don’t have a valid license key. Updating the product is also easy. You can do it from your WordPress admin panel!
