Does Worona support any kind of WordPress site?
Worona supports blog posts and pages. For example, any news site or blog such as blog.worona.org. As you can see, it has categories, authors, galleries, menus, featured images, and tags.

Worona does not support business/corporate websites, eCommerce, and neither custom templates.

What about the pricing?
Worona is free. There are no installation costs nor monthly fees.

Our monetization comes from a system of ad revenue sharing. We get the income generated through one ad placement on your website.
How do I set up Worona?
Worona is a WordPress plugin which can be installed and configured with just a few clicks. You can follow our installation guide and always count on our support.
Is there a long-term contract or a commitment to sign up for a fixed period?
No, there’s no long term contract nor commitment to stay with Worona.

If you’re not happy with our solution, you can cancel anytime. It is as simple as deactivating our plugin.
What’s the difference between Worona and a responsive WordPress theme?
A responsive WordPress theme does not mean a better website performance. Although it is necessary to incorporate elements of responsiveness into your web design, they have no impact on speed.

The mission of Worona is to get your site on screen as fast as possible. Ensuring a speedy mobile website will help boost your traffic and make your visitors have a painless, better experience across all devices.
Why mobile speed is important?
According to Google, 53% of visitors leave a mobile site after 3 seconds if the content doesn’t load quickly. No one likes to stare at an empty screen waiting for pages to load.

These users who are frustrated by a slow-loading site are more likely to bounce: visit your site once, leave and never return.

If you don’t want to lose more traffic, you need to prioritize your mobile performance. Speed is key to keep users engaged, which results in greater pageviews and ad revenue, among many other benefits.
Does Worona affect search rankings?
It may affect positively.

Google takes note of the speed of your website in their search ranking algorithms. In addition, they recently announced that starting in July 2018, page speed will be a ranking factor for mobile searches too.

Our solution makes your site load in 0.5 seconds on average, and scores 99/100 in mobile performance on Google PageSpeed Insights. So yes, this can have a positive impact on SEO.
Is Worona compatible with Yoast SEO plugin?
Yes, it is. But in order to make them compatible you will need to install and activate the Yoast SEO for WordPress PWA plugin. We explain you how in our Help Docs.
Does Worona replace or change my current theme?
Yes, it does. Worona doesn’t use PHP to render HTML anymore. It uses a new system made with React and Node, carefully designed with performance in mind. We have made a lot of improvements which are (sadly) not possible in PHP.

This means that we are not able to re-use your responsive theme. But it opens a new world of possibilities to build the best UX/UIs for the vibrant WordPress ecosystem.

Our system uses the new WP-API to fetch the content (and just the content).
Can I customize Worona’s theme?
Of course! You can change colors, fonts, logos, link styles, size of featured images, etc. In the near future, you will be able to create your own themes too.
Are there any available extensions?
Yes, Worona supports the following extensions right now:

- Disqus Comments
- OneSignal push notifications
- AdSense
- Yoast SEO
- Google Analytics
- Google Tag Manager
- Google Publisher Tags (DFP)

Don’t be shy, if you need a custom extension just let us know and we’ll assess your proposal. In addition, you will be able to create your own extensions in the near future.
