Review : Going Green Pro is a Genesis blog WordPress theme mainly developed for nature lover people by StudioPress. Going Green WordPress theme is a theme made of natural green color background and smooth fonts and border lines. The child theme can be good choice for those bloggers who writes about nature and it’s benefits, we have seen plenty of green revolutions where people go through “nature awareness” campaigns to explain the importance of preserving nature. So this type of nature bloggers can surely use this theme, on the other hand you can also use it for the general blogging. Another thing that will gives you best experience is the crisp background made of micro grid design.
Going Green Theme Features Review
Color Options : Going Green Pro theme is flexible in customization so chancing color style and background texture will not be a hard-work, rather it will be enjoyable. There are four ready color styles given with the options page so you can select and apply. If these four colors are not suitable to your taste then color generator box is provided to create the list of your own color shades and later you can switch to any color style that you prefer. Other color options available are menu text color, link hover highlight color effect etc. The separate color panel between header and body section is the main elegant of design which makes this theme look more beautiful.
Perfect Header : You must be thinking why i used “Perfect” word for header area, Well it is because header region of Going Green Pro theme has large space between all header elements to maintain proper visibility. Background image is also customizable that means you can select plain color or textured / custom image to rock the header section. The menu-bar is available on the top and bottom of header to place page template links on top and best categories on the bottom menu bar. This is a most common part of any website but smart designers of this theme have made it unique and eye-catchy. Thanks to the “Lauren Mancke” who have updated this theme with the refreshing look.
Body Part : The Going Green Pro is a best Genesis WordPress theme for the bloggers because it creates large featured images expanded upto both end of the body area. Having big featured images and proper font style can be good point for the readers to keep them reading your articles, boring font or bad spacing may cause your readers to leave your site. The second best part of this StudioPress child theme is sidebar and a special newsletter widget having attractive form style design. You must have seen single box email subscriber box but this widget has custom background option, three text fields (First name, Last name, Email) and button to subscribe for the newsletter. The text displayed on the widget title, fields, button can be chanced as you like.
In the conclusion line I would say that Going Green Pro is a genesis child and truly suggestible for the nature bloggers, but it has simple and traditional look. So it is only useful if you are planning to start simple and smooth running blog. There are many bloggers who requires visually enhanced blog with loads of colorful elements, graphics and this theme is not made for crazy fancy people. The design is simple but customization support, latest features and powerful coding can beat all the other drawbacks.
