New Music Modern Skin

New Music Modern Skin

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.

The Future of WordPress and Performance Tuning Tips in 2021

The Future of WordPress and Performance Tuning Tips in 2021

Guest post by Tom Fanelli, CEO and founder of Convesio

The best thing you can do for your WordPress website in 2021 is to tune up its performance, but that's not always as simple as it sounds. Generally, you can sum up performance as 50% site speed and 50% user experience, otherwise known as UX. Unfortunately, UX improvements often lead to lower site speed, which means you may be faced with a difficult challenge when optimizing your site.
