Questions & Answers
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.
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
