We run a website for our local town called A Little Bit of Stone - feel free to google or add .com to the end.
Since 2015 we’ve been running on the Jarida theme from TieLabs - https://tielabs.com/product/jarida-theme/
There’s a few issues for us with the theme:
- The poor implementation of the 2 level menus when in mobile (responsive) modes (since we launched this theme mobile accounts for the majority of our traffic)
- The advertisement blocks that we utilise get pushed down the page which isn’t very advertiser friendly
- As a local news website we need to include an events diary, which we do via a plugin, a job section which is again another plugin and finally a business directory which is a third plugin.
These different plugins cause issues around user logins and roles and obviously need separate updates.
We’re therefore looking for a new theme to use from 2018 that helps to address these short comings.
Any recommendations on themes that out of the box will be more aligned to what we need or any theme developers who’d like to incorporate some of those features in their themes?
Any other ideas?
