Features with * require premium plugins, not included with theme purchase
Which theme is best for pagespeed?
They all are! Pagespeed optimization is determined by your hosting provider, and specific plugins that handle functions related to pagespeed such as:
- caching (hosting provider, or a plugin as a last resort)
- image compression (ShortPixel or WPSmush)
- css+js deferring (WPRocket)
- lazyloading images (WPRocket)
These are all complex operations and should not be handled by a theme developer because of the depth of specialized knowledge required. See this post about pagespeed optimization.
More details can be found in our SEO for food bloggers post.
What Theme is best for foodie vloggers (food video bloggers)?
All themes currently have similar support for video, so the decision really comes down to which styling best matches your branding. Each theme can be fully customized to your own styling with some work, so you’re not stuck on any single theme.
Do I qualify to be a Feast customer?
Food blogging is accessible to anyone who wants to put in real, serious effort. Your ability to invest up front will partially determine whether you should start with our themes. For serious bloggers who want to compete in ranking in search engines, at minimum, you’ll spend
- $75 – $125 on our themes (plus Genesis, if you don’t already have it)
- $60/year ($5/month) minimum on webhosting, though this will handicap your blog, and we recommend the $35/month hosting at WPEngine or SiteGround for real performance
- $10/year on a domain name at Namecheap
- $50/year on a recipe plugin
If you want to get started on a budget, we recommend signing up for a free blog on wordpress.com and doing your first 10-15 recipes there. It costs nothing and will give you a good feel for how committed you are to the process. Our themes will not work on blogs hosted on WordPress.com.
Do you offer refunds or a money-back guarantee?
No. No exceptions. Once you have access to the theme files, there’s no way to ensure they won’t be used.
Our themes provide a baseline design, take some work to set up, and are not an all-in-one solution.
What is the Feast Plugin?
The Feast Plugin is a plugin that adds functionality to all 5 Feast themes. There’s also an optional subscription that grants access to all 5 themes.
