Newsmag was handpicked as the best selling WordPress theme in news and magazine aspect last time. In my review today, I would like to take Sweet Date – a WordPress dating theme by SeventhQueen to discover inside. Frankly speaking, the first installation of the theme and demo package was a little bit hard because I was struggling with some errors in plugins. However, after having it installed and making a try, I am so happy to own this theme because of its great functionalities, features-rich. Although the design is simple, you will have an exactly same site as the published demo. It is different from many other vendors, coming with a really beautiful demo but after the installation, you feel to be fooled.
Sweet Date – The best selling template in dating field
As the title quoted “More than a WordPress dating theme”, Sweet Date looks like a common house where all warm hearts have the same beat. This is a place for people finding another half by logging in the front end, making registration and creating your own profile. The FaceBook sign-up is supported here to save your time. There are two ways of searching other members: via the main form by BuddyPress on the homepage and via the horizontal form located on the member page. In the main form, there are 3 fields: numerical field, age and matching field showed. You also will have 3 different options to display this form: by shortcode, widget or in PHP files.
Sweet Date comes with Paid Membership Pro plugin which allows you to create Membership Levels and give levelled-content access. This premium plugin includes 6 popular payment gateways: Stripe, Authorize, Paypal, Braintree, CyberSource, 2 Checkout and 55 add-ons. More than that, the PMPro offers you endless customization possibilities of page settings, payment settings, email settings, advanced settings, the control of member list, orders, discount codes, report or export the report in the .csv file.
This dating WordPress theme uses 2 other premium plugins: drag & drop Visual Composer page builder to build any page or content effortlessly and Slider Revolution with awesome effects and options. In addition, Sweet Date integrates 600+ Google fonts, unlimited sidebars and color scheme, Mobile responsive to give you so many choices to customize the website and ensure same great UX in any device.
If BuddyPress plugin plays an important role in operating the matching system, notification and the profile area, bbPress also is not less important in managing the forum system. From here, you can view all the forums, easily create a new forum, control topics, replies or newly build other ones. Formerly known as BuddyPress media, rtMedia is integrated into this theme to display media & attach media to the website and support other features for the BuddyPress and bbPress plugins.
In order to operate successfully a website, an easy to use but powerful Admin panel is a key factor. You can find such things in the Sweet Date. Just clicking into the theme option, you will be lead to the panel where offers you unlimited power to customize this best selling WordPress theme: from the general settings to layouts, homepages, styling and plugins settings.
