BOTIGA THEME (Royal Elementor vs Botiga)
Botiga is a brand new minimalist Woocommerce theme...
In this Botiga Theme review, we take a look at the most important features of this theme which was made by aThemes, a professional company that offers some very good Wordpress themes via their website. In 2013, Charlie Livingston started aThemes as a one man company but nowadays they work with 6 programmers.
The theme has only just been released but has already been installed on 2.000+ websites and if we click on Wordpress.org Checking Botiga's rating, we see that all raters gave 5 stars. The theme is already a success and will be further developed with several demos and there will be a pro version later I assume.
The Botiga theme has quickly become popular with many people because the theme has a simple but beautiful layout for a shop. Nowadays there is no need to worry about bells and whistles, simplicity can be very graceful. Botiga is a good example of this. The advantage of this is that you don't have to make a lot of adjustments to build a webshop with it, so you can finish your project in no time.
DIFFERENT CHECK-OUT STYLES
Not an important thing but you can choose whether you want to display the checkout in 1 or 2 columns. There are many more cart and checkout options but I try to keep this article interesting, you can check out the rest on their own site if your interest in Botiga has been sparked.
BOTIGA THEME REVIEW: SPEED
The Botiga 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. Check out a demo of Botiga itself and see how fast it loads. Of course you can optimize your website yourself on loading time. Follow this tutorial here.
The Botiga theme uses the Gutenberg Editor by default, which is certainly not my favorite editor. But since this is a shop and most of the work is done in Woocommerce, it doesn't matter much. Tip: To make Gutenberg work a lot better and make it look more like a page builder, it's a good idea to use the CoBlocks plugin from Godaddy.
BOTIGA: PRODUCTS LAY-OUT
Even though I only show 2 above, you can choose from 3 different layouts for the product pages. If you want complete control over the Woocommerce layouts you will need to use a theme like Divi. Three layout is just standard for a good theme.
BOTIGA: COLOR PALETTE
There are quite a few standard color combinations that can be set with a single click, additional personal adjustments can be made afterwards. These are standard options for most themes, but it is well put together at Botiga.
I see they have paid a lot of attention to their blog, because 6 different layouts is a big variation. I don't think the theme is suitable as a pure blog, because then there should be homepages available that are set up for a blog website, but this is more than enough as support for a webshop.
BOTIGA THEME REVIEW: CONCLUSION
Botiga is a new fresh theme, very suitable to quickly create a build a good shop. The theme builder aThemes always does a good job and in my opinion this theme has a great future. If you want options and frills in your webshop with a real page builder, see if WP-Astra might be something for you. Want even more options and frills? Then choose the Divi Theme.
ROYAL ELEMENTOR (Royal Elementor vs Botiga)
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
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
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 THEME REVIEW: SPEED
The Royal Elementor 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. Of course you can further optimize your website on loading time. Follow this tutorial here.
ROYAL ELEMENTOR: 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
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
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
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!
ROYAL ELEMENTOR VS BOTIGA CONCLUSION
Royal Elementor and Botiga are both good themes, and the free versions are certainly highly rated for a reason. But even though both Botiga and Royal Elementor are also worth their money in the pro version, I have to advise against them both because there are much better themes available for the same money and both themes are certainly not optimal for creating webshops. My tip is buy Divi, the best selling and valued theme in the world or possibly Astra if you want to work with a lightning fast theme.
