Franklin Business Feb 27, 2020

Trankad is a WordPress theme dedicated to Construction Businesses specialized on roads, buildings, megastructure construction. It is also suitable for industrial businesses. The purpose of this review is to make you see objectively what you should expect when you get the Trankad theme. It has a lot of features including RTL, CSS animations, multiple gallery grid and more. For further details, let's get going.

  • Optimized for high speed
  • Fully Responsive and Retina ready
  • Various Custom Widgets and much more
  • One-click importer
  • 600+ Google Fonts

Mobile Compatibility

We have a nice theme which presents itself rather, of course, mobile devices. Retina ready, it is conveniently displayed on any type of device whatever the size of the screen, up to the smallest. The colors chosen for the design give an attractive style to the mobile version of the theme. It is professional and classy The most important features are highlighted as the "Add to Cart" icon, the hidden menu, etc

There are some issues with the loading page, however. Since the loading time is very long, we find ourselves for a moment on an empty page where we can scroll for a long time unnecessarily. Some windows of the site appear here and there as if there was a bug. No one was loading the theme slowly so we wouldn't pay too much attention to this problem.

Design Review

Design is what strikes a user first when they open a site. It can constitute an element which makes a user flee or maintain it. With the Trankad theme, we are in the field of engineering and construction. So we expect to see a design that brings us back to this field. And we were served!

When you open a page, an animation on a yellow background appears during loading; it looks like a drill or something. In short, it's not bad already! Now the theme itself is quite visually appealing. The predominant colors namely white and yellow fit well with the construction field. They are used well throughout the content. We have a very professional and modern look, and you can further improve that with the customization options the theme offers.

Small flat perhaps subjective: we find the header a little coarse. we could have used less space for it to give more space to the reception image. But it's not a big deal.

Speed Test Review

The loading speed of a site is very important for the user experience. It can have a negative effect if it exceeds 3s. This is why you should be careful with heavy themes that could cause your site to be slow. We tested the Trankad theme and, how to say it, WOW! and not in the positive sense of the word. We have an average speed of 10s. It's really very slow. This also earned him a low grade of Design.

The main problem here is the lack of cache. It is, therefore, necessary to add Expires headers. Web pages are becoming increasingly complex with more scripts, style sheets, images, and Flash on them. A first-time visit to a page may require several HTTP requests to load all the components. By using Expires headers these components become cacheable, which avoids unnecessary HTTP requests on subsequent page views. Expires headers are most often associated with images, but they can and should be used on all page components including scripts, style sheets, and Flash.

Apart from the cache, we must pay attention to the size of the images which can also have a significant impact on the speed of the site. We recommend replacing them with much lighter images.

SEO Review

Now we will see the referencing of the Trankad theme. Seeing a good SEO offers a definite advantage in that you will not need to make any particular configuration for your site to be well-positioned on the search engines.

With an SEO score of 75, Trankad is not doing too badly. The speed of the site must be what negatively affects the score, so by working on this problem you can improve the SEO.

It should be noted that you can achieve a better SEO score using an advanced tool like Yoast SEO.

Customer Support Review

Customer support is one of the things you have to be very careful about when looking for a product like a theme. This determines whether you can be well taken care of if you have a problem installing or using the product.

We have observed the way in which the team behind the Trankad theme manages customer concerns and we note some concerns. Deadlines, in particular, are not always good for resolving customer problems. Some of them have even come to complain openly.

However, apart from these few cases of dissatisfaction, the author knows how to remain calm and courteous towards his customers, even when they become demanding, even harsh.

Supported Plugins

Trankad supports various plugins. WooCommerce is one of the most important support for this WordPress theme. This will helps you to build an online store. WooCommerce is one of the most used plugins to start selling products listed on the website. You can list products with price, and you can promote products, write descriptions and much more.

Besides WooCommerce, Trankad is also compatible with WPLM, WPBakery Page Builder, Bootstrap and many others.

Summarize

To summarize, we will say that Trankad is a theme with a quality design that suits the targeted niche. It has strong points that we have noted during our article, but also some bad points like the loading speed which can have a negative impact on the user experience. However, there are solutions to increase the performance we offer. In short, this is a theme that we can recommend without worry.
