Splash WordPress Theme Update

We have some exciting news for you. One of our most-liked WordPress Blog themes, Splash, just got an overhaul and it is now faster and better than ever.

Apart from being 100% responsive, SEO friendly, WooCommerce ready, having custom widgets, 20+ shortcodes and integrated social media buttons, we now have even more typography options, translation options, more icon fonts, various code and speed optimizations to make it one of our best themes.

The original Splash theme helped so many of our user’s sites rank higher in search engines. Our testimonials section is filled with reviews for this theme, and Splash v2.1 is better. More than that you can use Splash as a WordPress eCommerce theme also. That is a plus point for your WordPress blog.

With Splash 2.1, you can now rank even higher and we moved the reviews functionality to our WP Review plugin so that you can easily switch between themes in the future if you feel like it.
