Updated: Dec 04, 2013

With this Theme Junkie themes review, I want to show all the possibilities that have Theme Junkie as a premium WordPress Theme company.

Theme Junkie is a WordPress premium theme supplier with an appealing, flexible and for all the tastes, collection of themes. You’ve WP themes for business, video, magazines, bloggers, news, portfolios and galleries.

For the purpose of this review, I’ll do it with their Publisher theme. This WordPress theme best suits for online magazines, personal blogs, newspapers, etc.

To test it, I installed locally with a full set of my default plugins, and I was playing with its settings-options for some time.

Want to know why I call it flexible and user-friendly?

Let’s go and continue reading to find out the reasons :)

 

Theme Junkie Themes Review

You know, a picture is worth a thousand words, right?

Therefore I’ve taken screenshots like crazy ;) of the Publisher junkie theme, and you’ll see the “under the hood” of WordPress Theme Junkie themes.

You know, a picture is worth a thousand words, right?

 

Theme Junkie General Settings

 

Theme Junkie General Settings

 

  • Set here the Theme Stylesheet according to your needs
  • Add Logo
  • Favicon (the tiny drawing that appears in the URL browser on the left)
  • Contact Form (if this form satisfies you, you don’t need an additional plugin) and more.

 

Navigation

 Junkie Navigation

 

  • Exclude pages from the nav-bar, if you want to
  • Display Home link – I display it in my cases
  • Add drop menus
  • Control the Number of dropdown tiers shown
  • Order Pages Links by Ascending/Descending

 

Layout Settings

Here, you’ve control over Homepage and Single Posts/Pages in different tabs.

On the homepage you can enable featured content (great, if you’ve some post to highlight), controlled by special tags that you must specify. Also you can determine the number of characters to show for post excerpts (default is 180)

Carrousel with total administration in terms of categories and posts.

 

Ad-Management

Enable a 728×90 pixel-ad to your header – useful to insert e.g. Adsense or another Ad Networks.

 

SEO Options

It’s a very complete tab full of possibilities, namely:

  • Custom title
  • Meta description
  • Meta keywords (I don’t recommend to enable: is devaluated and you tell others your keywords)
  • Home page custom title, meta description, etc.

If you need a SEO basic-floor, these customizations are enough.
If not, I suggest using a free plugin that is a heavy weight for SEO: WordPress SEO by Yoast

 

Integration

Here you’re able to add code to your:

  • Header (helpful when you need to add Javascript or CSS to all pages)
  • Body (good for Google Analytics)
  • At the top of your posts (e.g. ad blocks)
  • At bottom of your posts, before the comments (a subscribe box or an ad, are good examples)

 

Documentation

When you need a quick reference related to Installation and Troubleshooting, these tips come handy.

 

Customization

Complete customization available in colors, backgrounds, titles, tagline, static front page.

 

Theme Junkie Widgets

Here you’ve a plethora of different widgets to several purposes: Flickr, Ad 125 x125, Twitter, Videos and so on.

(E.g. here is a screenshot of the widget social profiles with the main social networks)

 

Junkie Social Widget

 

I tried for the purpose of this test, the Twitter widget with my accounts, and I aimed to display them on the sidebar or footer, but I got zero – nada.

I don’t know why this is not working. It’s a small thing to research further, if I need later ;)

 

Theme Junkie Premium Themes – Pricing Details

Now, let’s talk about their prices. They divide their structure of prices, in two packages as follows:

 

Standard Subscription – Good for Beginners

  • Complete Access To All Current Themes
  • 1 Year Complete Access To All New Themes
  • 1 Year Free Theme Updates
  • Lifetime Theme Support
  • Can Use Theme On Unlimited Sites
  • Can Use Theme For Lifetime
  • Can Remove Copyright Links
  • $50 one-time fee

 

Lifetime Subscription – Most Popular & Best Value

  • Complete Access To All Current Themes
  • Lifetime Complete Access To All New Themes
  • Lifetime Free Theme Updates
  • Lifetime Theme Support
  • Can Use Theme On Unlimited Sites
  • Can Use Theme For Lifetime
  • Can Remove Copyright Links
  • $100 one-time fee

Having total access to all themes for $50, is a good deal during a year, or $100 for a lifetime membership, I think is an excellent deal too.
In both cases, you’ve access to all the Theme Junkie collection.

Some other Theme Junkie themes worth mentioning are:

 

Resizable

Theme Junkie Resizable

 

Like the name says by itself, Resizable is a responsive magazine / blog theme that displays perfect for any type of device, since desktop to mobile devices, like Android, iPhone, iPad, Blackberry, etc.

 

VideoPlus

VideoPlus is a premium theme ideal to be used for video sites news & magazine, or any type of multimedia sites.

 

eStudio

 Theme Junkie eStudio

 

eStudio is a fully responsive and flexible WordPress theme, suitable for business, online studios, and portfolio sites.

 

Conclusion
In terms of cons honestly, I’m not seeing any evident that I need to mention in this Theme Junkie review.

I’ve heard that they have a solid support via online forums available for their premium themes, but I didn’t try still by myself, to endorse it to a 100%.

They are offering WordPress high quality themes with affordable prices. Their theme pricing, allows you two options to choose from, for different budgets and goals.

Really, I liked this WordPress Publisher theme in particular, and Theme Junkie themes in general, for their functionality. You can customize lots of things with their advanced control panels.

  1. Please stay away from Theme Junkie. I had purchased the lifetime option for $99. I even sent a mail to Roy the owner to double check. He said as a lifetime member I would receive all future updates. However after one year, I was not able to access the membership area. I have sent multiple requests both in the forum and to Roy. Its been many months since, still have not received access.

  2. I love Theme Junkie themes but one thing that’s apparent across all of the themes they build is their Twitter Feeds display widget. Even on their own website it no longer works. I can still subscribe to Twitter via the link but the feeds aren’t displaying and I get the following message ” Error: Twitter did not respond. Please wait a few minutes and refresh this page.”
