Airi vs Extra comparison  💥
AIRI THEME (Extra vs Airi)
The Airi Theme has an insanely high rating...
In this Airi Theme review we take a look at the most important features of this theme . Designed by aThemes, this theme is highly ranked on Wordpress.org for popular themes and is featured on over 20,000 websites installed. I've had good experiences with another theme from aThemes called Sydney and assume Airi has about the same to offer.
Airi Theme review: Rating
When we check Airi's rating on Wordpress.org, we see that practically all raters gave 5 stars. Ratings are very important because it shows what people who know the theme think of it. The theme is still relatively new and more raters will follow, but the average usually remains the same.
Airi Theme review: Demos
The Airi (free) theme offers 6 beautiful demo layouts. That number doubles in the pro version. The demos are of high quality and if you want you can watch them here "live ".
Airi Theme review: Webshops
Airi is 100% compatible with Woocommerce and if you are going to build a webshop Airi is definitely a suitable candidate. The best part is that all of these layouts were built with Elementor. You can find alternative themes for building shops in my top 10 for webshop themes.
Airi Theme review: Speed
The Airi theme is a minimalist theme and can therefore be called fast. The bare theme with no extra plugins with just a well-configured cache plugin produced the result presented above. Of course you can optimize your website yourself for loading time. Follow this tutorial here.
Airi Theme review: Page builders
The Airi theme uses the Elementor page builder by default, but is compatible with Beaverbuilder, and practically all top page builders out there for Wordpress. I recommend installing Elementor for free, but much better of course the pro version.
Airi Blog Lay-outs
In case you want to start a blog or are looking for a different theme for your existing blog, it is good to know that Airi offers different styles such as masonry and list layout. However, the best theme for blogging is the Extra Theme.
Airi offers different types of menus in the header. This is in no comparison to the header builders that some themes such as Divi offer, but it is probably more than enough for most projects.
Airi Google Fonts
Always nice to have a wide choice of different fonts. Google Font offers more than 600 fonts. However, do realize that fiddling with fonts is a lot of work and can sometimes cause errors. The fact is that all themes try to choose the best fonts for a layout and the question is whether you are really able to improve that.
Airi Theme review: Conclusie
It is clear that a lot is possible with Airi. The demo layouts are very good, even in the free version. With Airi one can build any type of website and of course it is a pleasure to use the Elementor pagebuilder to work.
For a little more money, you have access to all themes from aThemes instead of 1 theme. Memberships usually provide much more bang for the buck than just a theme, just like with Divi is the case.
EXTRA THEME (Extra vs Airi)
The Extra Theme excels in options for blogs and magazines...
The Extra Theme excels in options for blogs and magazines...
The Extra Theme was introduced to the public in 2015 by Elegant Themes marketed as the second most important theme next to their bestseller, the Divi Theme. Extra comes with the same page builder and structure as the Divi Theme, which is highly praised for this. The DiviBuilder, together with Elementor, is the best available in this area. I personally rate the Divibuilder a bit higher. Elementor works very nicely but it doesn't have a real inline text editor (yet). The Extra Theme is therefore equipped as standard with the best possible components.
Extra Theme Ratings
Elegant Themes does not have a rating system on its own site like many other themes, but their rating is maintained by independent websites, which is much more impressive. Click here to take an instant look at the ratings on these sites. Let's set the average rating at about 4.93 out of 5. Those are such great numbers that no other theme or company can match. There are at most a few free themes that have such ratings on Wordpress.org.
Extra Theme Review: Speed
Elegant Themes took the fast loading of their themes pretty seriously about a year ago and made remarkable improvements. Both Divi Theme and Extra Theme have benefited greatly from this and scored fast loading times.
Extra Theme: Blog Lay-out Builder
They call it the Category Builder themselves. With this tool you can build exactly that homepage or other pages as you had in mind. At the top, of course, features posts and in the columns post from different categories or carousels with posts. All very clear, a great tool.
Extra Theme: Blog Demo Lay-outs
The Extra Theme also gives you quite a few default homepage layouts that you can use as a starter. Actually superfluous with the presence of the Category Builder that I discussed above, but certainly good to give you an idea of what is possible.
Extra Theme: Blog Page Lay-outs
The posts or page content can also be completely adapted to your wishes. Extra makes your blog shine, the pages look very slick. The DiviBuilder is a master at building beautiful pages quickly with just a little bit of experience with the page builder.
Extra Theme: Blog Post Formats
The Extra Theme offers 7 different types of posts that you can use for your articles such as Video Posts, Ads Posts, Featured posts, Masonry posts, Carousel posts, Review posts, standard blog posts, or Tabbed Blog Posts. As mentioned, the Extra Theme is one of the best themes for building blog websites and related items due to its many options.
Extra-Theme: Review all kinds of Products
You can easily turn your blog into a review site as the Extra Theme already has special options built in for this. For writers of reviews like myself actually optimal. Maybe I should start using Extra for my next project.
Extra Theme: Modules
The Extra Theme is packed with modules that a professional blog might need. Already discussed above in "Blog Posts Layouts" there are no less than 7 different types of posts that you can use for your articles such as Video Posts, Ads Posts, Featured Posts, Masonry, Carousel etcetera. I'm not going to list the rest, they're all in the black image below.
Extra Theme: Review and Share
Under your posts, you can choose whether people can leave a rating in the form of stars and comments, and whether your posts can be shared by them on social media.
Extra Theme Review: Headers
To start with, all headers are provided with Advanced Mega Menus that make the sub-tabs look beautiful and easy to scroll and clear for your visitors. As for the headers themselves, you will find quite a number of pre-styled headers that you can use for your website with 1 click. Further adjustments can be made with the HeaderBuilder.
Extra Theme Review: Portfolios
Would you also like to show a showcase or portfolio to your audience in your blog? No problem because the Extra Theme has practically all the great options that the Divi Theme has for portfolios.
Extra Theme: Woocommerce Webshop
Some of you will certainly want to sell things through his website in addition to having a blog. The Extra Theme is of course at home in all markets and offers particularly attractive layouts for shops. Of course you have all possible Woocommerce elements and options at your disposal via the DiviBuilder. I'm not going to show all of that here, but rather read my Divi Theme review, the Extra Theme has the same options, such as different shop styles. Incidentally, you also get Divi if you want to purchase the Extra Theme.
Below you can watch a video of the Extra Theme created by its builders: Elegant Themes.
Extra Theme review conclusion
Extra left a very good impression on me. The Theme has impressive and many options for blogs and is an absolute must. The fact that the DiviBuilder is already optimized in this theme is of course also great. There is no better page builder to work with and exceeds even Elementor. The Extra Theme is not for sale separately but comes for only 89 dollars minus discounts that are often there together with Divi, the DiviBuilder as a separate plugin + a number of other elite plugins and 86 other themes as a package. I don't think there is a better deal in the web design world, an absolute must for every design agency.
Extra vs Airi conclusion
Extra and Airi are both good themes for creating blogs. Extra is great as it is practically like Divi (just explained above) but Airi is also a great theme although I prefer Extra. Both themes can be purchased as a membership, respectively from Elegant Themes and aThemes. Every professional web designer should have these two packages in his arsenal anyway.
