I’ve been working on a new site for a fairly large client lately and we ended up going with the Verendus Responsive Corporate Multi-Purpose WordPress theme. One of the reasons we went with Verendus to begin with is because of the wide layout which would give us enough room for a standard full page layout and a sidebar.
The theme comes with its own framework and a built in Visual Content Designer which I believe I’ve seen in some other themes. Building complex pages is fairly fast and easy with the visual content designer. I have found a couple minor bugs using the content designer to create pages but they are easily worked around.
The theme is well documented in the included documentation and I sent a question to the developer Timon about a few things and he replied in a timely, friendly and very helpful manner. Which can be very important when deciding upon a theme to go with.
Verendus comes with two premium WordPress slider plugins, Layer Slider and the Slider Revolution responsive WordPress slider plugins. Both of which are cutting edge jquery image sliders with an array of features. Choosing which one to use is really more of a matter of personal preference. The theme also includes a built in mega menu that lets you insert widgets into the drop down menus. The theme’s features are almost too numerous to be listed and also include Font Awesome CSS icons, tabbed ajax pages, and WooCommerce support.
Setting up a child theme for my css customizations and configuring the basic options was quick and easy. Verendus also creates two custom post types for News and a Portfolio.
Overall I would give this theme 5 stars and recommend it to anyone that likes the feel of it. It’s easy to customize, very responsive and mobile friendly, has more features than you’ll probably need and the author seems to provide good support.
