BLOCKSY (Royal Elementor vs Blocksy)

Blocksy Theme review


Blocksy is een razendsnel ladend minimalistisch Wordpress theme...

In this Blocksy Theme review I quickly show you why this is such a fantastic theme. The theme is suitable for any kind of website, including building blogs and shops. It was created with Gutenberg in mind and works perfectly with it. The same goes for all elite pagebuilders for Wordpress.

BLOCKSY RATING

Blocksy theme review rating


If we check on Wordpress.org Blocksy's rating, we see that all raters gave 5 stars out of 1 rater after who gave 4 stars. A better average rating than what the Blocksy Theme shows here is therefore hardly possible.


BLOCKSY THEME REVIEW: SPEED

Blocksy Theme review laadtijden


The Blocksy theme is a fast loading theme although it is not in my list for fastest WP-themes. The theme itself without additional plugins with just a well configured cache plugin produced the result presented above. In short, the theme is astonishingly fast. Of course you can further optimize your website on loading time. Follow this tutorial here.

BLOCKSY DEMO LAY-OUTS

She calls the Blocksy theme Starter Sites herself. That is also the term used by Astra, a theme that is even better known than Blocksy and very much like it. Blocksy offers a great collection of these Starter Sites which is totally awesome.

BLOCKSY DEMOS FOR PAGEBUILDERS

The above demo layouts were created with the following page builders: Gutenberg, Elementor, Brizy and Beaverbuilder. Under each individual demo it is indicated for which page builders it is available. Again, Blocksy is similar to Astra which also offers this service on their Starter Sites.

BLOCKSY'S EDITOR

The Blocksy theme uses the Gutenberg Editor by default, which is definitely not my favorite editor. But as you have read above, the theme is just as suitable for working with elite page builders as you would like, which is certainly a good idea.

BLOCKSY BASIC FUNCTIONS

BLOCKSY: HEADER BUILDER

Blocksy Theme review Header Builder


Even the free version comes with a real header builder (picture above). Choose one of the ready-made headers or adapt it to your wishes. Blocksy makes it very easy to quickly create the header you had in mind. The pro version offers a much better header builder and there each of your pages can have a different header.


BLOCKSY THEME REVIEW: MEGA MENU

Blocksy Theme review Mega Menu


The mega menu only comes with the pro version and offers nice options like using icons, or complete content blocks (using Hooks). This basically allows you to use any kind of content in your menu. The mega menu also offers special design styles for the menu items.

BLOCKSY: WOOCOMMERCE SHOP

Blocksy Theme review Woocommerce Shop


Blocksy is also very suitable for building webshops with it, even the free version. The theme works perfectly with the popular Woocommerce plugin. Wonderful options such as Quick View, Ajax Cart and Gallery Styles are already included in the free version. The Pro version takes it up a notch with Wishlist, Off-Canvas filters, Floating Cart, Off-Canvas cart, Search by SKU and more. Building a pre-fashionable-looking shop thus becomes a piece of cake.

BLOCKSY: CUSTOM SIDEBARS

Blocksy Theme review Custom Sidebars


The same thing I just said about the headers also applies to the sidebars. In principle it is possible to present a different sidebar to your audience on every page. Important, because as can be seen in the example above, a shop page obviously needs a different sidebar than blog pages.

BLOCKSY THEME REVIEW: CONCLUSION

Blocksy is a new fresh theme, very suitable to quickly create a good shop, blog or corporate site. Strong points of Blocksy are the Starter Sites, the Header & Footer Builders and Webshop options. If you still have doubts, check WP-Astra. It is very similar to Blocksy but is a lot more advanced and offers even more options.

ROYAL ELEMENTOR (Royal Elementor vs Blocksy)

Royal Elementor Theme review


Royal Elementor is a brand new Wordpress theme...

In this Royal Elementor Theme review we take a look at its key features of this theme which was made by WP Royal, a professional company best known for a fantastic plugin with Elementor widgets. The plugin in question is already built into this theme, which immediately tells me that the theme will become very popular very quickly.

ROYAL ELEMENTOR RATING

The theme is just out but already installed on 3,000+ website and if we click on Wordpress.org Checking Royal Elementor's rating, we see that all raters gave 5 stars. Unfortunately, there were not that many people who gave a rating, but it can also be seen that the theme is popular. The theme is already a success and I see this theme growing into one of the most popular on Wordpress.org.

ROYAL ELEMENTOR DEMOS

Royal Elementor Theme review Demos


As a young theme, Royal Elementor already offers 30+ demo websites that can be installed with 1 click. All these demos can be edited with the Elementor page builder. The free version is great, but the pro version is even better. In addition, it must be said that the demos are built for very specific niches. For example, there is a demo for crypto websites, portfolios and professional-looking blogs.


ROYAL ELEMENTOR THEMEBUILDER/PAGEBUILDER

Royal Elementor Theme review pagebuilder


As the name of the theme suggests it is fully configured to work with the Elementor page builder. Not only can everything be customized with it, it also offers 50+ extra widgets that give Elementor so many extra possibilities. This is certainly one of the strongest points of this theme.

ROYAL ELEMENTOR: WIDGETS

Royal Elementor Theme Widgets


Royal Elementor has been known for years for their plugin that adds so many more elements or also called widgets to the Elementor page builder. This concerns 50+ extra widgets that you now have available even in the free version of the theme. There are practically no other themes that give such a plugin practically for free in a theme that is also free. In a word, great!

ROYAL ELEMENTOR: PARTICLE EFFECTS

Royal Elementor Theme Particle Effects


We have known the particle effects for years from even Joomla plugins that let snow fall over the screen during the Christmas season. Today it is all much more advanced and there are many different variants with different types of particles. All wonderful what this theme has to offer.

ROYAL ELEMENTOR: PARALLAX EFFECTS

Royal Elementor Theme review Parallax Effects


The parallax effect is also a very nice feature. You can't see it very well in the image above, but if you scroll across the page, the earth becomes narrower and wider and thus appears to be moving. You can check out the effect for yourself on their own website, but most of you will know what parallax is.

ROYAL ELEMENTOR: POP-UPS

Royal Elementor Theme review pop-ups


More and more themes now offer pop-ups integrated into the theme so that purchasing a plugin is no longer necessary. Pop-ups can significantly increase your leads and conversion and are therefore certainly desirable in a good website or shop. As can be seen in the image above, the Royal Elementor pop-up offers several variations.

ROYAL ELEMENTOR: PRO VERSION

The pro version has about the same number of widgets for Elementor but all these widgets have a standard and an advanced version. That's the difference, the same widgets but a lot better and with more options.

ROYAL ELEMENTOR THEME REVIEW: CONCLUSION

Royal Elementor is a new fresh theme, very suitable for creating a beautiful to build a website. The number of demos for specific niches of 30+ and the number of extra widgets for Elementor of 50+ are factors in themselves that make this one of the best free themes ever for Wordpress, but the theme has much more to offer as you read above. An absolute must!

BLOCKSY VS ROYAL ELEMENTOR CONCLUSION

Thanks for reading this Blocksy vs Royal Elementor comparison to the end. You will agree with me that both themes are toppers. Both Royal Elementor and Blocksy load very fast and are suitable for building any type of website. I think these themes are so similar also with regard to their demo websites that I will not make a choice which theme would be better. The choice is yours, both work perfectly with Elementor.
