My top 5 very best WP themes 2020
Divi is also so popular because of its front-end page builder that can also be used in other themes, The Divibuilder. Everything works with drag & drop and you see "live" the changes, you do not work in the back-end but in the site as you see it online. You build a structure with a number of columns and then fill it super fast with text blocks, images and plug-ins (including buttons, galleries, sliders, price tables, customer ratings, forms).
With the many ready-made homepage layouts and all the essential pages that a website needs, you can build your website very quickly with 1. Divi, especially if you have gained a little bit of experience with it. The same goes for web shops, because Divi is completely prepared for the use of plug-ins for shops like the Woocommerce plug-in.
One of the newest gadgets in Divi is the split test tool. This allows you to optimize elements on your website by creating a different version of a page and offering it distributed to your visitors. You can see which page is the most effective. The import & export function is also very handy so that you can immediately import your favorite settings into a new project.
Divi gets better with every new version. This theme is the absolute favorite of many hobbyists and professional web builders.
Extra is een ander theme van Elegant Themes just like the number 1 in the list here, Divi. Extra is a theme that has been specially developed for blogs and newspaper websites, possibly in combination with a shop because it works very well with the Woocommerce plug-in.
This theme has the most popular page builder Divibuilder as the heart of the CMS and works flawlessly with drag & drop for all 40 modules for this theme. Everything can be adjusted and styled quickly and easily. It also has custom banner options with which you can easily provide your site with ads. It features an advanced dropdown mega menu which looks great.
Further has Extra various widgets specially developed for bloggers such as a recent post widget, a social media widget, and an author widget.
The Extra theme may require you to increase the memory limit for the server from 64 to 128 at least (256 or 512 is also allowed). You do this by adding the code below to your wp-config.php.
Avada is the flagship of the Fusion Team and, has been sold just a bit less then Divi: 475,000 times. This earned the builder 7.5 million dollars, half for the builders and half for Themeforest where the theme is sold. The good thing about such successful themes is that they will never be taken off the market, so that in the future you will always have upgrades for your website. As far as support is concerned, you in good hands, just like at Divi.
For me, the best Wordpress theme to build web shops is, Monstroid-2. This best Wordpress webshop theme has the Elementor page builder as standard, this page builder can be compared with the quality of the Divi Builder. There are also people who prefer it to the Divi Builder.
My personal opinion regarding these 3 themes as multipurpose themes is the following: Both the Divi Theme and Monstroid-2 work very well, I am less impressed by Avada. This also because the standard font, the standard color and layout are very recognizable so that everyone can immediately see with which theme your site was built with. Furthermore, it is that Divi Theme and Monstroid-2 can be purchased in a bundle so that one immediately has access to dozens of premium themes and plug-ins, that is not the case with Avada.
With more than 200 ready-made website designs TheGem also one of my favorite Wordpress themes for 2020. It has integrated the Bakery Pagebuilder, a very good back-end pagebuilder that uses many themes. The ready-made website designs for this theme are so beautiful that it may have the nicest layouts of all themes. It is clear to see that a lot of time and care has been spent on this.
TheGem also has an import / export function built in with which you can copy all theme settings from one website to another. The theme is full of settings that can easily be set. All in all a top theme.
In addition to the beautiful 200 website layouts is TheGem very fast charging, looks very good on mobile and has several premium plug-ins built in for which you pay nothing extra. Think of Contactform7, Woocommerce, Revolution slider and more.
