Are You Taking Full Advantage of Pre-Made Layouts?
The Value of Pre-made Layouts
There are a number of important features to look for when selecting any WordPress theme, with some of the more obvious ones being responsiveness, speed, SEO optimization, and ease of customization. This latter feature is often achieved through the use of multiple layouts, and the means of manipulating them. Pre-made layouts can significantly cut down on website development time, without a risk of sacrificing quality. More is better as far as the number of ready to use layouts is concerned. A theme that can boast 100 or more layouts is usually a much more effective website development tool than one that features a single, or a mere handful of these important features. Layout content and quality is important, but the usability and ease of customizing a layout is the real time saver.
