Mobile Compatibility

Surfing the internet is currently like a daily habit for many people. We tour different sites for various goals, and most of the web exploring is being done from Mobile phones. So, Having a compatible website for smartphones is a must thing nowadays. A mobile-friendly website offers a short but same clear version of the desktop view.

This test helps us to understand how a theme will perform with different-sized devices. We have checked the demo, and it's very flexible and well-designed, but few things need correction. As we are currently on the "home 6 supermarkets" demo, the section shown above has a logo overlapping issue on the home option - it's on the bottom-left corner. Other demos also have the same problems. We tried demos of Cerato themes on the different devices, and the rendering is flawless. The photos are well pixelated, and the navigation is fluid. We haven’t noticed any indentation issues or misplacement.

Mysteriously, Google has certified this theme as a smartphone-friendly theme without mentioning any issue. We attempted a Google Mobile friendly test, and it looks like there nothing important to notice. So hopefully, you don't have to worry about mobile compatibility. But if there is something, you can always contact the support section.

Design Review

This section of the Cerato theme review will look at the design variations this theme has to offer. This is because the significant aspect of a multipurpose theme as an online shop is all about styles and flexibility to use. The Cerato theme comes with 35 templates that are composed of some particular niche and are unique. The Elementor page builder nicely crafts all of them.

Cerato is a theme with multi-functional design capability. Its powerful admin panel will let you design different header/footer and banner section, and you can change the color and size of products. It has endless mega menu possibilities AJAX search, filter, and all the PSD files are included in the theme bundle.

The Cerato theme covers the various sector of the website, such as- Super Market, Fashion, Perfume, Jewelry accessories, Digital products, Tech products, Sports, Kitchen, etc. So, no matter what niche your WooCommerece site has, Cerato is designed to cover your need.

Speed Test Review

The Internet is marked in our time by speed. Internet users like to browse quickly and get bored if one site seems slower than others, even if it's a second. On average, it takes too three seconds for a website to load without negatively affecting the user experience. It is this data that will serve as a reference for our test.

We have tested the adding speed of the Cerato WordPress theme in Pingdom, and the score left us stunned. It obtained 85(B) out of 100. That's a brilliant score for a WooCommerce site because, generally, online shops contained too many images that increase the loading time. Cerato theme took 3.40 seconds, and the page weight is 1.2 MB. There is nothing much to modify, but you can decrease the page component by merging CSS or Js files. This will help to make fewer HTTP requests. If you face any issues with the page loading, WP Super Cache is a great tool that can blow the problems away, and luckily, it is compatible with the theme bundle.

SEO Review

SEO is the spine behind organic visitors to any website. A well-optimized website can grab more people from search engines. Google's web ranking depends on SEO compatibility. The more SEO consistent a website is, the higher chance to be on the top of the search list.

SEO friendliness of the Cerato WordPress theme was tested in SEO Site CheckUp, and the result is not much excellent. It scored 59 out of 100, with 30 passes, 17 errors, and one warning. There is no meta description, keywords, and google analytics script available on the demo site. Its using inline CSS with no SEO friendly URL. Also, a few images from the demo site is missing image ALT tags. These are the primary reason behind not obtaining the full score. Yoast SEO is a freemium plugin that can help you with such problems. It's compatible with Cerato.

The rich results test has shown us that the demo web page is not eligible for rich results because of scripts conflict. The Rich Result data helps the browser to have accurate informations on a post or article. Too bad Cerato does not meet this criterion.

Customer Support Review

CleverSoft offers an A1 support system. Once you buy the Cerato theme bundle, you get one year's support with it. You can go to the help forum anytime and ask your doubts there. The average reply time is 24 hours. Moreover, you get a lifetime of free updates and bug fixes from the authors.

There is more support on the ticket center, but some comments are still from their support section.

The assurance of the word about premium support is reflecting in the review section. It's a not very old theme but has 80 reviews. Almost everyone praised this theme. That's why it has 4.99 ratings with 2300+ sales. Consumers appreciate this theme for customizability, support, design, and features.

Supported Plugins

We can see the generosity of the Cerato theme about plugins from the list. CleverSoft developers have their own premium plugins, respectively -

  • Clever Facebook Messenger Live Chat
  • CAFE – Clever Addons For Elementor
  • Clever WhatsApp Chat for WordPress
  • Clever Mega Menus for Elementor
  • Clever WooCommerce Product Filter

Lastly, the Meta box to customize envisioned fields comes with the theme.

So you won't be needing plugin anymore, but to improvise your work efficiency and design, you can buy a premium version of these plugins.

Summarize

It would not be a mistake to address the Cerato theme as the star of tomorrow because it shows its success in all aspects, including design, speed, customization, support, etc. There are still some issues with this theme. The authors hopefully will fix these issues soon via updates. So it can be said that it is definitely a value for money product at a low price.
