Here’s why using pirated WordPress themes is a terrible idea

Choosing the right WordPress theme is exceptionally important: the right theme can make a site, and vice versa for the wrong theme. The best WordPress themes are typically premium themes. We’ve been making WordPress themes for the last eight years, so we can attest to the extra value packed into premium themes – and also the huge amount of time it takes to develop a single WordPress theme. Yet, pirated versions of premium WordPress themes are readily available through file sharing sites. Why...

Our experience – and feedback from customers – means we’re very well ...

Here’s why you should keep your WordPress Theme up-to-date

WPZOOM’s WordPress themes come with lifetime licences but one year of updates and support. That means you’re free to use the theme you’ve purchased for as long as you like, but you’ll only receive new updates and support for a year after your purchase. When your updates and support expire after one year, you can purchase another year of updates and support with a 50% discount of what you paid originally. This offers a really good deal for you and means we can afford to continue developing new f...

12 Sites to Find Free Stock Video Footages

Full screen video backgrounds have become quite the trend in web design these days. And of course WordPress themes like WPZOOM’s own Inspiro are making it simple for users to easily achieve that sophisticated look. But while it might be easy to add a video to a site these days, the problem is that videos are expensive. Luckily, there are some sites out there that offer videos for free. The free video sites are nowhere close to being as numerous or convenient as the many free image sites, but th...

Creating Child Themes and When You Should Use Them

A child theme in WordPress is small, light-weight “add-on” theme that inherits all the styling and functionality of another theme, called the “parent theme” in this case. You can create a child theme for any theme in WordPress. Child themes are used when you want to make changes to a site without actually changing the code or the files in your original theme. This lets you update your original theme (which is the engine behind the child theme) without losing any changes you made to your site. I...
