Jarvis WordPress theme includes manual installation only. To install the Jarvis theme, you will need to complete the following steps:
As soon as the template is uploaded and activated, you will need to configure permalinks and install demo data manually.
Monstroid2, in its turn, offers the automatic installation and theme activation. In order to get all theme components installed on your site, simply upload the Cherry wizard plugin (basically, that’s the only feature that’s left untouched from the earlier Monstroid2 versions. So, all that you need to do is installing and activating Wizard plugin. Once done, you will be asked to enter your order ID in order to start the theme’s installation.
As soon as the theme is installed, you will be provided with a selection of ready-made skins that can be used on your site. You can choose any of the skins that are currently available in the gallery. Mind that the collection is due to grow with time. SO, you will be able to switch for any different skins whenever you require.
The main menu, pages, and section of the Jarvis WordPress theme are configured via the regular WordPress dashboard. This is where you create pages and sections for the pages and then add them manually to the front page.
Monstroid2 is configured via Elementor page builder and its advanced settings panel. With its help, you can bring all kinds of changes to the theme's layout as you simply work in the intuitive visiual mode. All kinds of changes are revealed in the real-time.
Jarvis is customized via a regular WordPress admin panel.
Monstroid2 is integrated with Elementor drag-and-drop page builder. This is the last-generation WordPress editor that lets you bring changes to your site’s layout in the visual mode.
One of the greatest improvements of the latest version of Monstroid2 is the availability of the Magic Button. As you click it you are taken to the gallery of all pre-designed pages, sections, headers, footers, and archives that can be used on your site.
The pages are ready to be inserted into your site simply “as-it-is” or while applying certain modifications in via the settings menu. All pages are intended to be applied for particular topics. For example, if you need to add a new Home, About, Services page to your site, then you can go ahead and browse the respective collection of page categories on the left of your working space. All pages and layouts are available for preview before you decide to insert them in your site.
Talking about Jarvis, the theme includes four custom widgets. These are:
All widgets can be found under Appearance > Widgets. All of these are free to use. With their help, you can configure the way in which your site displays content via your WordPress dashboard.
Monstroid2 is notable for its modular structure. There a range of modules being included in the page builder. These can be added to your site’s layout with a single click. Next, you can apply all necessary changes via the Elementor settings menu and while simply modifying the presentation/organization of multiple elements with a click of a mouse.
Shortcodes allow you to add styled content to the pages of your site. Pro webmasters can create shortcodes on their own, thus making the final results fit their own business ideally. If you want to save your time on the web development, you can use pre-built shortcodes. These are especially popular among WordPress developers.
Jarvis includes 30+ shortcodes that can be accessed when whenever you create a new page or post. A list of shortcodes is included in the one-click drop-down menu. Here you can find custom options to split the posts/pages into columns, add Google map, testimonials, pricing tables, and other pieces of data with a click. Using shortcodes, you can also manage the organization of the pages of your site. Here is how the home parallax section is managed:
Unlike its earlier versions, Monstroid2 doesn’t contain any shortcodes. All changes are intended to be applied in the visual mode, as you simply drag and drop pre-designed design elements, tweak pages, modify layouts, and apply a whole lot of other modifications in the intuitive drag-and-drop interface.
Jarvis is compatible with both premium and free WordPress plugins that you can find on wordpress.org. This suggests that you need to search for extensions and add those to your site manually.
As for Monstroid2, the theme is integrated with a collection of premium Jet plugins, all of which are intended to work with Elementor-based online projects exclusively. The regular updates will deliver nee Jet plugins, which will make the theme even more powerful with the flow of time. What’s peculiar about the updated version of Monstroid 2 theme, there are no third-party extensions under the hood of this WordPress solution. All pieces of functionality are the custom solutions that are designed and developed for Elementor page builder.
