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.

The pre-made layouts shown here are just a sampling of the large number that are currently available, and they are excellent examples of the design quality web designers look to achieve, and have a right to expect, from a given theme’s offerings. Every one of these layouts is modern in appearance, and eachis an example of the idea-generating features a designer looks for to get a project off to a rapid start. All it usually takes is to watch a demo of one of these layouts to realize they are concepts and not mere pictures, and how useful they can be to get the creation of a web page off to a fast start.

Clusterize.js is a tiny plugin to display large data sets easily. The main idea is not to pollute DOM with all used tags. Instead of that – it splits the list to clusters, then shows elements for current scroll position and adds extra rows to top and bottom of the list to emulate full height of table so that browser shows scrollbar as for full list.
