Franklin Business Mar 17, 2020

You are the owner of a local business (industrial, electronic, etc.) and you want to create a site for your online structure. We may have found the perfect theme for you.

Dustrial is a WordPress theme created precisely for this type of business. The niche is quite large but it revolves around the development of your online business. We have allowed ourselves to test this theme in great detail in order to give you an accurate assessment. So let's start!

  • Unique and Creative Design

Mobile Compatibility

From what we have observed, Dustrial is a fully responsive and Retina ready theme. We tested it on several types of devices ranging from phones to tablets, and the theme is displayed without a problem whatever the size of the screen.

On the other hand, we really appreciated the header. Simple and beautiful. No superfluous things; just the name and the hidden menu. In addition, it is a fixed header, so it is accessible even if you scroll on the page.

However, we felt a little uneasy when browsing the home page. We scrolled long enough before we could reach the bottom of the page. In fact, the page contains a large number of images and these could have been condensed into blocks or windows. On small screens, the images pass one after the other and that can make navigation painful for the user. Especially since there is no “Back to header” button; and therefore you still have to browse all the content to get to the top.

Design Review

When it comes to design, we don’t have much to say. Just wonderful! Already the page loading animation is not bad, but above all the choice of colors for the theme is really interesting. We find it perfect for the niche. The mixing makes the site professional, neat, and very beautiful.

Browsing the page was also a treat. As you scroll, the content is displayed by doing slides. It’s original! The theme offers 03 models of home pages, all as beautiful as each other, and many customization options.

Speed Test Review

This is to assess the average loading time of the theme. If you want to create a site, this is a detail that must be seriously taken into account; because visitors find it boring to return to a site they found slow.

Statistically, the loading time negatively influences the user experience when it exceeds 3 seconds.

According to our test, the loading time attributed to the Dustrial theme is 2 seconds; which is very good considering the required standards. The author of Dustrial has really taken many measures to lighten the theme despite the richness of the content. One of the most interesting concerns cache management to facilitate user navigation

SEO Review

Fortunately, Dustrial seems to be at the top on this point, with an SEO score of 83. Really interesting! We found very few errors in our test. The most frequent concerns the number of words that seems low on certain pages.

In fact, without enough text on a page, Google will have trouble understanding what the content is about. If Google doesn’t know what the content is about, it won’t be able to rank your content for the search terms you are targeting. We, therefore, advise you to add more content to your page so that it isn’t considered thin content and has a better chance of ranking. In general, the average web page that ranks on page 1 of Google contains 2200 words.

As it turns out, Dustrial also supports rich results, especially products. This is a very important feature for you because it will positively influence the click-through rate on your WordPress site.

Customer Support Review

We looked at the comments section to see how user concerns are taken care of and how satisfied they are. Well, to sum up in two words, Fast and kindly! Most concerns are resolved in a very short time and effectively.

In fact, what we have noticed is this methodical side in the management of the problems encountered. Even those who create their site for the first time can get by without problems thanks to this quality assistance.

On the other hand, we also noticed that the author quite often submits updates to his product. Only in 2019, it released around 20. This shows how much the wish of this author is to constantly improve the experience of its users. Besides, the last update dates from March 04, 2020; which is very recent.

Supported Plugins

The WordPress Dustrial theme is compatible with many plugins. Among them, we find for example WooCommerce, WPBakery Page Builder, Contact Form 7, Slider Revolution, and many others.

Summarize

To conclude we will say that Dustrial responds favorably to most of our evaluation criteria. The theme was created so that anyone can take it in hand, even a novice. Besides, its big strength is customer support. We are happy to recommend the Dustrial theme for the creation of the site for your company.
