Reinvent Magazine theme

Product Features and Benefits

Fully designed to provide a user with a lot of options Reinvent certain does that, by making use of Asides that are posts that can appear in your sidebar. This is fully monetized and ready to allow someone to start charging for advertising on their site.

It has the regular 5 option slider, a way to feature your posts and have them appear front and center for your visitors to notice.

I can’t help thinking this was a customized version of one of Woothemes or studio themes as it’s almost identical to what they have put out.

Functionality

One of the most striking functionality options in this theme would be its use of images and video.  While it’s not incredible it is useful for someone looking to display videos or images on the homepage in a gallery. It is a 3 column gallery, allowing users to click on videos and go to the page to see the full screen video.

There appears to be no option for use of shortcodes in the theme which is disappointing now that most decent themes come with shortcodes that extend and make like easier for the user.

Compatibility and Code

I tested the theme in Internet explorer, Safari, Firefox, Opera and Chrome and found that there were no conflicts with the theme and thankfully in internet explorer everything loaded and worked fine.

When it comes to plugins, there is no word on what it may be using. I would gather all would be provided.

I checked the theme to see how valid the XHTML and CSS were and it has 1 error.

Performance Check

Strangely it loaded fast despite the fact that it scored low. I ran it through Google page speed tool to really get a better idea of what was going on and I found it scored 35/100 with lots of places to fix.  Had it scored 100 it would have been classed as perfectly optimized. At the moment Google is very big on load speeds of websites so it was nice to see that they scored high.

3 Pros – Things that are great about the theme

  • Useful magazine site.
  • Nice options for video and images
  • You can translate the theme into another language using their admin panel

3 Cons – Things which aren’t too good

  • Average looking
  • Very slow speed, laggy
  • No shortcodes.
