Centric Pro WordPress theme review

Centric Pro WordPress theme is a child theme specifically for the Genesis WordPress Framework. Built upon one of the finest frameworks for WordPress going Centric Pro offers much for those looking to build a blog or business website.

What makes the Centric Pro WordPress theme great?

Built upon the Genesis framework for WordPress the Centric Pro theme offers much to those who are looking for something eye catching. The homepage itself consists for definable widget areas, all you need to do is write a post and copy and paste the code into the relevant widget. A smooth transition from one section to the next ensues and the overall aesthetics are in a flat design style. Which is all the rage these days.

EASY TO USE

It’s easy to use from a writing perspective and does not over complicate with theme options panels and more gizmos you can shake a stick at. Clean and concise is the order of the day, music to some peoples ears.

  • Simple clean style
  • Customize theme colors using standard WordPress function
  • Focus is on blog content instead of gimmicky imagery

Clear columns to separate your content. These columns are a great way to partition your pages, break up the content and highlight specific sections.

Nice clean and simple blog overview page. As you can see the focus is on the main content itself rather than being enticed by images left right and center.

Is Centric Pro right for me?

If you like easy to use themes yes. If you like themes with less clutter, clean design and optimized for SEO yes. If you like well documented installation and a thriving support system yes.

Some would argue that the theme as is the norm with child themes for the Genesis framework lacks theme options. Whilst this might be true compared to convoluted Themeforest themes it simply works in favor of Genesis child themes.

You can make changes to the look and feel of the website choose a color etc. However if you want to change the look of the site drastically then prepare to get your hands dirty with some code. So those of you not familiar with code may well look elsewhere.

However with a thriving support community and searching most things can be changed with a little cut and pasting. If you’re looking for a well rounded theme for your business or indeed design company then this is just the ticket.

Suitability:

Ideal for web design companies or businesses that are service driven. Great for bloggers with a clean easy to navigate structure.

Options:

The Centric Pro WordPress theme has it’s own dedicated options panel. Here you can configure things such as breadcrumbs, post layout, navigation options and more.
Each page can have a specific layout which is great if you want to change the look of a post from full width or sidebar left, sidebar right.

Has it’s own in-built SEO options, easy to configure. Fully compatible with WordPress SEO plugin (a major bonus).

Speed:

As the Centric Pro theme is lightweight, page speed is very good. So you need not worry about this affecting your search engine rankings.
