Everything you need to know about Matrix themes.
Choosing the right template, pre-purchase questions and support
Matrix themes are based on custom layout available in Jimdo website builder. It means you can create a fully customizable website having access to all it's resources.
The 'Matrix' are small elements of Jimdo website builder that you will find in the source code.
Matrix themes are manipulating those elements to create a fully customizable design with additional advanced features.
All tools in one place: detailed documentation, custom widgets, updates and direct link for smart and knowledgeable 24/7 support
Different design options and unlimited customization. Enjoy endless possibilities with full control over skins, colors and layout.
50+ exclusive shortcodes, js plugins, pre-made sections, and many features that cannot be found in any other add-on.
Can Matrix Themes be installed on Jimdo Dolphin website?
Matrix Themes can be used only with Jimdo Creator. If you use Jimdo Dolphin, you can contact the official Jimdo support asking to change the account for Jimdo Creator.
Can I use Matrix theme without knowledge of coding?
Yes, each step, widget or any custom feature in Matrix Themes is well documented with examples and shortcodes. However, it is possible to get installed Matrix theme and use it as default Jimdo template. Check this page with Matrix Themes widgets that don't require using Widget/HTML module.
Websites with too many pages and Matrix themes
If your website has many pages, it doesn't mean you can't use Matrix Theme, but you need to change your navigation structure in order to have a slim menu ( at least the first level ). A custom layout gives you a possibility to customize many elements of your website, from blog posts to online store items. So that's why having 300 different products in your store wouldn't be convenient to make changes in every single page and in this case it's better to use a standard Jimdo template. Obviously here we talk about the existing content and not the new websites.
Everyone can use Matrix Themes without any knowledge of coding.
Check some beautiful examples of Jimdo websites built with Matrix themes
If you like to test some features of Matrix themes, you can install the framework "Zodiac". Zodiac is based on Matrix themes widgets and although can be used only with standard Jimdo templates, you can install a free version to see how it works and whether you can manage to use it on your website
01. Multi Purpose
Multi Purpose or Default are templates with dropdown menu.
The main navigation has 2 sub-levels which are displayed like dropdown menu
Explosion version has mega dropdown menu which doesn't require any coding knowledge,- you edit your menu like any other standard Jimdo template
Multilingual themes have a special structure of navigation where the first level used only for the language select. The second level is the main navigation with sub-level. This kind of website has 3 different position for each level (3) and can't be used with dropdown menu.
04. One pager
One page layout a specific template which has the main menu edited in Widget/HTML or Text module. This kind of template is perfect for landing pages, portfolio, event websites etc. It is not suggested to use for online stores or blog.
Is it possible to change the template? I made a mistake in order
No, you can request the refund and make another purchase.
Can I switch from one type of the template( e.g. Multi Purpose) to Multilingual?
It's not possible to change the type of the template as each theme has it's own navigation structure
How does megamenu work?
If you add one sub-level to your main navigation, it will be displayed as standard dropdown menu. When you add another sub-level (3rd level) it will be displayed as megamenu with 4 columns

@Herbert unfortunately, Matrix Theme don't provide any SEO tools but just some general tips and suggestions in documentation;
-There's a js plugin 'Lazy' that can be used for any element of Jimdo site;
- In Admin menu > SEO> settings. This section is the same in custom layout too;
- web.js is necessary file for running Jimdo site and can't be removed or modified.
Herbert (Saturday, 16 October 2021 08:50)
Some information I have not found. Can you answer me?
*How do the themes behave in conjunction with PageSpeed?
*Are there LazyLoad possibilities?
*How does the theme change behave in relation to SEO?
*Will Slow Java Script (example: /web.js.85d2f03....js - assets.jimstatic.com) be faster or removed with your theme?

@Carsten the payment is one-time, you don't need to pay every year
Carsten (Wednesday, 14 April 2021 11:55)
are the prices valid for a period of one year or do I pay once and then nothing more?
Matrix themes (Tuesday, 13 April 2021 20:45)
@Carsten unfortunately, only in english
Carsten (Tuesday, 13 April 2021 14:56)
Hi, do you have all your information in german? My english is not the best and it will be easier to read all in german.

@Andre you can start editing your site with Matrix theme and upgrade your Jimdo plan later but keep in mind that some features ( body classes) available only in Jimdo Pro or Business account. For the second question the answer is yes.
Andre (Saturday, 19 September 2020 16:57)
...So, my main question is, can I buy one of your templates and editing it from scratch as a free Jimdo website?
Andre (Saturday, 19 September 2020 13:15)
I want to buy one of your templates and start from scratch a free Jimdo website using it, and then when it's finished I'll buy a Jimdo plan and turn it live. How should I proceed?

@ingrid using a test website is a good option to test Matrix themes before the installation on your official website. You can find a detailed tutorial about how to transfer a custom layout from one website to another: https://www.matrix-themes.com/support/help/theme-transfer/

@Miri you didn't add the url of your website. The template is installed as 'custom layout'. You can try Zodiac framework which is based on Matrix themes widgets:
Miri (Monday, 25 May 2020 23:03)
After the purchase, what do I get? Is it the template as an alternative to my actual template (Jimdo), shown within the menue, - and I am the one, who decides, when I am ready to switch to it?
When do I have to save any "codes" and such?
Is it as easy to switch to this template as it is told?
Matrix themes (Sunday, 24 May 2020 21:48)
@Matthias please try the Zodiac:
Matthias Schneider (Sunday, 24 May 2020 20:40)
I'm not yet life with my Jimdo Site. Customization with Jimdo is finished now and I'm ready to go but would like to upgrade before I go online since I don't want to be life with a half finished Site - after the upgrade to Lemberg. My understanding is, once you are life than everyone has access, no option for a testing environment except the maintenance mode in Jimdo which is not sufficient.
Is it possible to upgrade to Lemberg anyway? My Jimdo Package is PRO.

@Markus the templates of Enterprise package are based on popular designs with further customizations.
Horten Ultimate is the same like Horten explosion but it has animated navigation and additional widgets available in Enterprise package:
Marcus Franklin (Saturday, 02 May 2020 13:26)
what an amazing service. Great themes !
I am a little bit confused. I have just ordered a new jimdo business website. Everthing ok as long. In the next step, i would like to buy one of your themes for my new website. But I do not know which is the right choice for me.
I do not understand the diferrence between for instance "Horten Explosion" and "Horten Ultimate".
What is the difference between a theme of an enterprise package (like Horton Ultimate) and a theme you describe in your section "Popular Design"
Horten Explosion in an enterprise package seems to be ok for me. But what is the Add-On, when i would take "Horton Ultimate" ? Sorry for my confusion.

@Martin the Gotland theme is very similar to Jaunt design which has full width sections, image widgets with captions etc.
Martin (Thursday, 10 October 2019 09:33)
I am about to decide between Squarespace and Jimdo to realize a new web shop. In terms of design I would defenitely prefer Squarespace, however in terms of adressing special requirements of German law I would prefer Jimdo. Now my question:
Is it possible to realize a "Jaunt-like" design (https://www.squarespace.com/templates/jaunt) based on a matrix theme (full width, gallery-styled pictures with captions that function as hyperlinks, mouse-over effect for those pics etc.). Which one would you recommend? Gotland?
Appreciate your feedback!
Thanks and regards!

Can you build websites like this with your themes?
and how much?
Serhiy (Thursday, 11 January 2018 14:36)
@Clemens the default version has standard dropdown menu, while the explosion version has megamenu. That's only one difference.How does megamenu works: you edit it as a usual Jimdo navigation. The enterprise packages such as Yoga, Coaching etc can be used for any other business and different kind of websites.
Clemens (Thursday, 11 January 2018 14:28)
I'm interested in the Lemberg theme. Can you please tell me the differnece between the versions "default" and "explosive"?
And when I want to purchase i can alos choose from "Yoga", "Coaching" and others. Is this meant for this specific businesses?

Hello Serhiy, are all the variants that are in the display of an e-commerce products (ex "Large image") available for all templates?

The alternative version of Altona is Bergen ecommerce with megamenu:

Claudia Fabbri (Wednesday, 17 May 2017 12:13)
Thank you Serhiy.
Kindly, could you suggest me some alternatives? Similar design and customization, e-commerce + dropdown menu?
Again, thank you.
Serhiy (Wednesday, 17 May 2017 11:59)
the Altona theme has only standard menu, no dropdown or megamenu
Claudia Fabbri (Wednesday, 17 May 2017 11:41)
I'd like to have an information. I want to update my Jimdo website with "Altona" theme.
Has this theme the possibility to add a dropdown and/or a mega dropdown menu? I can't understand it from the preview.
Thank you much,
