Review : Airtifact – Portfolio Creative WordPress Theme

Franklin Creative Mar 20, 2020

If you are a designer or a developer with a need for creativity in building your web site on WordPress, then the “Airtifact” portfolio theme can help you precisely highlight your content. This is a new theme available on the Envato platform since 2018. We’ll explore for you its potentials and especially its gaps, so you can make an opinion on this theme.

Feature List

  • One-click import
  • RTL and WPML support
  • Ajax driven theme
  • Custom fullscreen background
  • Fully responsive
  • Woocommerce support
  • Unique and lightweight custom content builder
  • Google font library

Mobile Compatibility

Mobile compatibility is very important for themes like “Airtifact”. Most internet users use both their desktop computers and on their phones for work or entertainment. And a theme that does not meet this compatibility requirement is not done for our time and should be forgotten. So we tested different demos of the theme on a Samsung Galaxy 5 and iPad. And fortunately, the result seems good. The content adapts well to the size of the devices.

The fairly unique style of the theme makes it fun to use on mobile devices. The rendering is good. We like the header with its hidden menu and the simple logo; in addition, it is fixed and therefore accessible even if we are at the bottom of the page. We have a "Back to top" button at the bottom of the page, but it would have been more practical if this button was fixed for easier navigation. Other than that, the theme is fully responsive and retina ready.

Speed Test Review

The speed test performed with the Pingdom tool website on one of the demos of the “Airtifact” theme displays a mediocre overall score. We observed that there are certain gaps. For example, not using expires headers increases the number of requests made to the server. Indeed, these allow caching of certain components such as scripts and images, reducing requests to the server. In short for a developer it’s not a problem, but if you are a novice, you’ll have to get closer to the development team.

SEO Review

SEO analysis is important for the visibility of your site on the web. The higher you are in the referencing, the better you are solicited. For our test, we used a reference site on the subject namely Neil Patel. And the displayed results of the demo chosen for the test are excellent on average.

The only downside would be the absence of a sitemap.xml file on one of the demo pages. This file is very important because it facilitates the exploration of your site by search engines. It allows you to increase your SEO.

Other reference tools could allow you to have a better Seo analysis. We recommend for example Yoast Seo.

Customer Support Review

We went through a bit of the review left by internet users on the theme. We can see that simple visitors are taken care of as well as those who have already bought the product; the goal is, of course, to convert them into potential customers. And the answers are quite precise. And as a bonus, the answers are given within one day on average.

And for good reason, the opinions collected on the theme are almost all excellent. Also, updates are made regularly. The last dates back to February 1, 2020; which is fairly recent. You can, therefore, be sure that the author keeps a close eye on his product.

Supported Plugins

In this section, it’s up to us to see if the plugins that the theme claims to support actually work. And on the demos we explored, the RTL plugin, WPML, and Google Library work well. It is a significant plus.

Summarize

It is clear that Airtifact is made for art purists. Whether it is design, content, style, there is a perpetual search for beauty. And the theme has other strong arguments such as SEO and customer support that ensure you have a good grip. So we recommend it without hesitation for those who want to showcase their creativity on the internet.
