DAILY NEWS AND REVIEWS OF THE WEB TEMPLATES INDUSTRY

Coffee takes a special place in our hearts, because with enough coffee nothing is impossible. It very often helps us out when we are short of time before the deadline, or when we simply can’t pull ourselves together in the morning to start effective and inspiring work. Finally, the very smell of it cheers us up!

However, how many coffee websites have you seen? Unless you buy coffee in bulk/you visit your favorite coffee shop website often/you prefer buying coffee online, you may have not seen many. Meanwhile, these websites may be pure web design inspiration to everyone who is somehow related to web design. Unexpected design solutions, beautiful color combinations, sophisticated typography – anything can launch your inspirational design thinking.

Before we start listing the web designs, picture a typical coffee website in your mind. It’s brown, isn’t it? Well, now it’s time to see if you guess is right.

We can easily say that it’s… coffee time!
For best experience brew a cup of coffee before looking through the websites. 🙂

In terms of functionality, F2 doesn’t lag behind the default template. Its pack includes a sticky header, dropdown menu, configurable swatches, sale/new product types, image slider, and so much more.

We are often asked – what are the best WordPress plugins for blogs? What tools are better than the other? What functionality should we better pay attention to when choosing the best option for a blog? In an attempt to answer these and other questions, TemplateMonster’s team has decided to reach out the top WordPress blogs and requested them for the lists of plugins they have installed in their dashboards.

As a result, they have made up a compilation of 98 best WordPress plugins 2016 that 15 top WordPress blogs use. Some tools turned out to be more popular than the others, some of them were installed only on 1 or 2 of the blogs that the team has reached. So, in an attempt to create a more detailed categorization of the most handy tools for bloggers, TemplateMonster’s team has organized them into two groups – the first one contains plugins that are more popular than the others, whereas another group includes plugins that are installed on individual blogs only. Each of the aforementioned groups, in its turn, features categorization of plugins by their purpose of use (like navigation, social media, security, site performance, email, comments, etc.), so you can easily navigate to any section that is of the greatest interest to you with a click.
