Grecko is a multipurpose WordPress theme by ThemeRex that gives users more control over their website projects. Grecko comes packed with a lot of impressive features and thanks to the super user friendly TRX Framework, users can customize the theme to suit their needs, whether it is a minimalist design, an ecommerce project, a review website, a news site, or a magazine website.
In this Grecko WordPress Theme review, we examine the features, usability, and the pros and cons of the Grecko Multipurpose WordPress Theme.
Features of the Grecko MultiPurpose WordPress Theme
The Grecko Multipurpose WordPress theme, like most themes that were released this year, comes packed with a lot of impressive features. Let us take a look at some of the standout features of the theme.
The Grecko WordPress theme can be used for almost any WordPress project, thanks to the easy to use backend TRX framework. It is fully-responsive and ready to be customized according to your site’s needs.
Grecko comes with a lot of bells and whistles and this prompted me to test how exactly all those features would feel on a mobile device. Surprisingly, it was excellent to say the least. The design was very usable and also unique. Video Embeds, Widgets, Related Posts, Share Buttons, and all other features played together nicely on mobile.
Interactive Ajax Search
WordPress is an excellent content management system, but its search features could use an improvement and ThemeRex did a good job integrating an interactive search system. For those that do not understand what this is, it is similar to the live search feature in Google search.
The review system in Grecko is another spectacular feature I enjoyed about the theme. Most themes that advertise advanced rating systems only do a good job with editor ratings but Grecko has a perfect User and Editor rating system.
The Grecko WordPress theme includes four different Sliders; Swiper Slider, RoyalSlider, FlexSlider and Revolution Slider. RoyalSlider and Revolution Slider are standalone plugins that can be purchased on CodeCanyon but you get them for free if you buy the Grecko Multipurpose WordPress theme.
Ever opened a website filled with captivating content and you find yourself opening multiple tabs just so you don’t miss anything? I know I have. The bookmark panel solves this issue. You can simply add the page to the bookmark panel and open it later. This feature is also very useful for Ecommerce sites.
$167 Worth of Plugins
- RoyalSlider – $23
- WPML Plugin – $79
- Po Composer – $16
- Visual Composer – $30
- Revolution Slider – $19
All of these plugins come bundled with the Grecko WordPress theme, not only that, they are all integrated into the theme to give users an excellent experience.
One would expect a powerful theme to conflict with some plugins but WooCommerce, WPML, WordPress SEO, Author Hreview all played nicely with the theme. WooCommerce and WPML are well integrated into the theme. On activation, you are required to install both plugins.

Grecko WordPress Theme
In terms of market offering, Grecko is truly a multipurpose WordPress theme. The customizer is truly awesome, making Grecko a theme that can be used across many niches.
SEO is as important as ever, and I’m especially impressed with ThemeRex as they did not try to build an SEO function into the theme. All-in-one SEO, WordPress SEO and any other SEO plugin should work fine.
Every good product has its issues and Grecko is no different. I had two minor issues with the Grecko Multipurpose WordPress theme. I encountered some difficulties in getting the slider to work properly on the homepage and I couldn’t find an option to disable the Ajax view counter on the homepage. These are not major issues though. Contacting support or reading through the support forum would easily solve these issues.
Grecko Multipurpose WordPress Theme is definitely worth the price. It is indeed the multipurpose theme ThemeRex advertised and thankfully, almost all additional features could be disabled, making it easy to use the theme even if you prefer a minimalist design.
Grecko is an excellent theme by ThemeRex, it is well worth the price and I must add, it is good to know that there are still some Theme Developers out there willing to put some creativity into their work rather than just duplicating and rebranding existing themes.
