For any users creating a website, accessibility should always be prioritized as part of your process from the very beginning. Themify has put significant efforts to ensure that all of the themes are WCAG compliant, paying special attention to accessibility in theme design. By being compliant with WCAG (Web Content Accessibility Standards), users using Themify themes can be assured that they can build and maintain a website that is compliant with the accessibility standards.
What Is WCAG and Why It Is Important
The WCAG is part of a series of accessibility guidelines which are published by the Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) of the World Wide Web Consurtium (W3C) which is the leading standards making body for the Web. An overview of these guidelines can be accessed at W3C, explaining how to make web content more accessible to everyone, especially those with disabilities.
Although we know that the WCAG is the gold standard or benchmark in accessibility, it is also very important to understand that conforming with the WCAG may be required by the law and that site's owner may get fined if it fails to be compliant. The Standard on Web Accessibility in Canada requires the adoption of WCAG 2.0 across its websites and Web applications. The WCAG 2.0 states: "Following these guidelines will make content accessible to a wider range of people with disabilities, including blindness and low vision, deafness and hearing loss, learning disabilities, cognitive limitations, limited movement, speech disabilities, photosensitivity and combination of these. Following these guidelines will also often make your Web content more usable to users in general."
We have been working hard to introduce a new and revamped theme for bands, artists and all musicians alike. The new "Modern" skin is a redesign of our current Music theme, which you can experience on our Music demo, giving it a fresher and more modern look. The Modern skin has all the pre-built layouts that are essential for your site, making it a one-stop shop in achieving a great web experience.
The skin provides a layout that allows you to put a lot of information without it being too overwhelming, making your site appealing and informative at the same time. This theme's Home page alone offers the complete package, allowing you to view, in a summarized format, all the important information - updates, albums, upcoming and past events, etc - without navigating elsewhere. Offering you a very vibrant and visually appealing aesthetics, this will sure present your musicians in the best light.
Whether it is for a solo musician, a band, or for a music festival and event, the Modern skin is your perfect template in creating a top-of-the line site in just a few easy steps. Any existing users who want this new look can select it from Themify > Skin panel. The change will not affect existing sites if you don't select the new skin.

Since the release of Themify v5, we have received an overwhelming amount of positive feedbacks about the pagespeed and performance improvements. We've helped many users achieve a 90+ pagespeed score on their sites, which they weren't able to with other themes. In this post, we will present a pagespeed comparison of Themify Ultra versus Divi, Elementor, Avada, Beaver, Astra, OceanWP, all of which are extremely popular themes and page builders in the WordPress market. We are presenting an unbiased comparison using the builtin features from each theme, without any third party cache or minify plugins. The pagespeed test was audited using Google Pagespeed Insights and we've recorded the whole process, which you can watch below. When it comes to pagespeed, we are thrilled to show how Themify outperforms other themes and builders.
The long-awaited WordPress theme for our wedding vendors is here - introducing the new wedding Ultra skin! This skin provides a perfect template for wedding websites, wedding photographers, as well as, hand craft artists to showcase their work. It offers an elegant and floral look with lots of opportunities and room for information and photos. Experience the Ultra Wedding demo now.
With wedding sites and hand craft artist sites being photo-heavy, this skin provides a dedicated page for portfolios and blog posts where you can showcase all your work in a stunning gallery of photos. Moreover, with the layout being both easy-to-navigate and responsive, your site can be easily viewed on any device without compromising the layout and appearance.
Lightweight & High Pagespeed Score
Even with a lot of images and content on the demo, the Wedding skin is super lightweight and load very fast with a 95 pagespeed score (see report). With Themify's built-in performance features, we managed to make the demo home page size within 1mb. That means the site loads within 200-300ms on most high speed connections. Google indicated pagespeed is a SEO ranking factor now. If your WordPress site doesn't score 90+ on Google Pagespeed Insights, consider to switch to Ultra now to boost your site's pagespeed and SEO performance.
