Hi Friends , I hope you are like the new design , It is Avada theme I am using . Avada is famous WordPress theme with over 200,000+ customers. It is no 1 selling item on evanto marketplace.
I am doing blogging since February 2016. I start getting huge love and response from the visitors of my website. Some suggested me that grey color website looks vintage kinda. So please make changes in design.
I was happy with cololib’s theme . They were serving my website since last 6 months. But my website was looking old and odd with sparkling theme. So i decided to go with new theme.
Search for theme : I was in search of a good theme with simple UI and fast loading character. I finalized 3 themes The builder theme , avada theme and Gauge theme. Each theme was best in features. Builder was little hard to use , documentation was not very informative , But i liked the theme , I worked on few websites having builder theme as primary theme. For Gauge theme i never worked on gauge theme before , so i was not sure how the theme will perform , But i liked the way of homepage layout done by gauge theme.
At last avada comes . I worked on my avada projects. So i know it very well. I selected the theme and asked my host to increase the post upload limit to 64 mb. As avada is whooping 41mb in size.
Also as i was getting traffic at every 3 minute. So i selected midnight for this work. Total downtime was around 50 minutes.
