It’s official, Flothemes is closing its doors.

In the website design landscape, Flothemes had carved out a niche for itself. Known for its elegant WordPress templates and user-friendly interface, Flothemes was a go-to choice for photographers, creatives, and small businesses.

However, all good things come to an end, and following its acquisition by Showit, Flothemes has announced they are to withdraw support and functionality from their service from September / October this year. This leaves Flothemes site owners with no choice but to look for an alternative (less they run the risk of their site suffering a critical outage with no way to fix).

Reasons to Migrate Away from Flothemes

Flothemes site owners should seriously consider seeking an alternative now, there are inherent risks associated with continuing to use their platform, especially in light of their withdrawal of support:

  • Lack of Updates and Security Patches: With Flothemes discontinuing support, users won’t receive critical updates, bug fixes, or security patches. This leaves their websites vulnerable to potential security breaches and compatibility issues.
  • Stagnant Features: Without ongoing support, Flothemes’ features may become outdated. As web design trends evolve, site owners risk falling behind in terms of functionality and user experience. Users will not be able to update WordPress core, for example.
  • Technical Glitches and Compatibility: Over time, Flothemes’ templates are likely to encounter technical glitches or compatibility problems with newer browsers, devices, or plugins. Without support, resolving these issues becomes impossible.
  • SEO Impact: Search engine optimization (SEO) relies on up-to-date code, responsive design, and fast loading times. Flothemes’ lack of support could negatively affect SEO rankings, leading to reduced visibility and traffic.

Continuing with Flothemes without support exposes site owners to security risks, outdated features, and potential SEO setbacks. Exploring alternative platforms that offer better support, customization, and modern features is a prudent step for those seeking long-term success for their websites.
