SEO (Search Engine Optimization)SEO has been a focus when developing Symple. h1,h2,h3 headings were carefully placed in optimal page/post headings. Many scripts were condensed for speedier download. When responsiveness is activated, the sidebars appear below main content. Responsiveness can be deactivated, if preferred. Also, there is options area to allow custom meta descriptions and keywords in the header to attain better SEO value for your site. Additionally, Symple offers three Apple Touch Icon image uploaders that allow for great SEO value and visibility when applied to your site. This is a feature I’ve yet to see offered in any theme
ResponsiveSymple is responsibly responsive. Meaning, the order of layout responds favorably to search engine value. There is also an option to turn off responsiveness, in favor a static layout, if you responsiveness isn’t your thing…
Updated FrequentlySymple will be vigorously maintained and consistently updated. Recent updates include adding unlimited slideshows, added meta description and keyword description options for SEO. Any questions or concerns, please let me know, and I will see to them right away
We purchased the theme yesterday, and as a seasoned ThemeForester I have a couple of things to say before I ask my question. (Tried Twitter, just covering my bases).
First This is, by far and away, the cleanest, most well organized simple to setup theme I have EVER purchased from Theme Forest, and I have purchased about 40+ over the years for various clients.
I literally had it functioning like the demo in a matter of a few hours of READING THE DOCS , and testing a few things out. Simply brilliant, bro.
Next. the documentation is immaculate and simple. I love that you put it in HTML format instead of PDF , as PDF can be kind of a hassle. The layout of that document is near perfect in it’s simplicity. Anyone thinking of purchasing, the documentation has a menu on the left with ALL of the features available, and the content is veied in a right pane, kind of like a single page layout website. Gorgeous and easy to follow.
You (and your team?) may be one of the best designers on Theme Forest. Lots of gorgeous themes here, but many of the highly functional themes come with massive headaches attached. This one has been a delight! Have I said enough good about this theme yet? I can’t.
I just bought this theme yesterday(Siiimple). I think of all the ones I evaluated, and there were many(this one was the best). I also approached the Author with questions etc and he was fantastic. He was responsive and took care of my questions right away. To get a great theme and have my questions answered so promptly was great. I would definitely work with this theme author again.
Loving the theme, great job!
I’ve installed it and configured it and all has gone very well. It was really simple to get going!
Documentation PreviewCurious about the documentation? Just as much time was spent working on the documentation as was the entire Symple theme A lot of effort was put into making it as easy and supportive as possible for you to get your theme started off right and as hassle free as possible.
