Well, what Coquinessa provides in styish appearance, it definitely scrimps on the theme description, but that’s okay. That’s what we’re here for and we’re going to do our very best to figure out what this theme has to offer and what kinds of advantages it provides to users who choose to purchase it.
This theme was made by Cresudo and…you know, what does Cresudo mean anyway? It’s an anagram of sourced, but I doubt that has anything to do with anything. But hey, whatever. Maybe we’re not supposed to know?
Visually, Coquinessa is very attractive, it’s an ideal solution for a lifestyle blog or a personal blog. But you don’t have to be limited to those angles, add in a recipe plugin and create a lovely recipe site. There are five different blog layouts, four post formats, four custom widgets, excerpt length control settings and more.
The design is pure style, I love the width of the single column layout and the prominent social media links are going to help you market your content on all the major social networks. Coquinessa relies more on widgets than it does anything else, which means you’ll never be theme locked by installing this template. Sure, the style is what it is and you don’t have the massive amount of layout flexibility that you might with a so called ‘premium’ theme that uses something like Visual Composer. That’s definitely not a bad thing because Visual Composer tends to create bloat and that lowers page load times.
Speaking of page load times.
I took the liberty of doing the site speed checker at Pingdom and the results are strong.
For a page that’s nearly 4 MB, 1.27 seconds is very fast. Optimize that image and you could probably expect to drop the time to well under a second to load up.
If you like this theme by Cresudo, maybe you’ll like the last one we reviewed, it’s called Enoire. Enoire is another very fast loading theme with elegant, simple and stylish presentation. That may be a great choice for some of you, but I think you can’t go wrong with either theme.
