Do you know the way to San José?  It’s pretty easy, just head south to the bottom of this post, we’ve got a handy link to find out more information, though you’re going to find plenty of info in this comprehensive review of the San José WordPress theme.

So many of these themes are named for song lyrics from the 1960’s or for cities in California.  (We just reviewed San Francisco here, it’s a nice theme too.)  This one, kind of both.  But I get the name here, it’s San José, the high tech capitol of the world, the place where the Silicon Valley starts and ends.  The San José WordPress theme is all about promoting applications, software and even products.  In a nutshell, San José is about SaaS.  (Software as a service – don’t feel bad, I had to look it up too.)  Let’s take a look at some of the handy dandy designs and features.

There are over a dozen demo looks to the San José theme, each one is clean and styled just a little differently.

I guess maybe this is the ‘vanilla’ style for San José.  It’s a home image for applications and software sales.

Here’s a style hyping the mobile friendly nature of your application.  Take it on the run!  Speaking of mobile friendly themes, I just reviewed a theme called Blanco, it’s mobile friendly and a real looker, great for resumé sites.

And for promoting hard goods, there’s this product pitch page. Maybe a website like this would have helped the Coolest Cooler out?  Haha, probably not.

And there are a bunch more designs to choose from.  Some page demos use video, others use a static image, some have a subscribe call to action, perfect for pre-launch when you’re still gathering up an email list before you drop your awesome app on the web store.  Some use a slider, some have a parallax feature.  They all have the same Bootstrap based code, simple and modern style and they’re all easy to use.  So, responsive, sixteen home pages and 20+ additional pages total, pages like multiple About Us pages, features detail pages, FAQs, contact pages, portfolios, post details and more.

It’s intense.

Here’s how the theme maker, Fox Themes, describes San José

Modern design that has awesome UI/UX. It is designed to increase your conversion rate. An amazing layout gives engaging experience for visitors.

Powerful features help to create a lasting impression on your visitors. These exceptional tools help you to stand out from the crowd. San José provides a wide array of usable & flexible features which is a fun to use in itself.

Sigh, this is another Visual Composer theme, but I won’t hold that against this one.  I checked the Pingdom speed checker just to make sure of what I thought I was seeing with this theme.

San José Pingdom Speed Test

Yep, it’s pretty slow.  A heavy amount of requests too.  I’m not hugely impressed, though some of that has to do with a couple mistakes Fox Themes made in setting the theme up.  But hey, you live, you learn.  Hopefully you learn anyway.

With that, we’re done with our review of San José.  Hope you enjoyed it, check back often for more great WordPress reviews.

This simple looking theme, called Ridgewood, is a little bit deceptive.  What do I mean by deceptive?  Well, while it looks like a very simple, plain and almost boring theme, it’s actually a very powerful and feature filled theme that packs a ton of amazing features to help make your web-mastering a fun and easy experience.
Built for portfolios specifically, Ridgewood is ideal for showcasing your application development work.  With a clean, modern theme like Ridgewood, it’s easy to make that first impression that will last a lifetime.
I love the tiled grid look that Ridgewood brings to the table.  I love that I always confuse the name with Billy Rosewood, from Beverly Hills Cop.  I love a minimalist design like the one you see here.  I love the swipe and touch enabled design that helps bring your content into the 21st century.  This really is a modern theme that’s well appointed and it can be yours for just $49, which is a very reasonable price these days.
