HESTIA THEME (Royal Elementor vs Hestia)

Below you can see the rating and active installation where I have placed arrows.


Hestia Theme review ratings


HESTIA AND ELEMENTOR

This appreciation applies to the free version of Hestia, which is of course much less extensive. I will of course discuss everything Hestia has to offer here, the pro version. The theme works perfectly with Woocommerce, WPML and the Elementor page builder. The additional installation of Elementor is definitely recommended, there is no better page builder. Get the pro version right away if you don't have problems spending some money.

HESTIA AND WOOCOMMERCE

For a top theme it is important to have a great presentation when it comes to web shops. Without it you will not achieve any rankings. Hestia just like the other themes from ThemeIsle have this. Below I show you how well everything is arranged in the shop pages.

HESTIA REVIEW: STARTER SITES

Just like any good theme, Hestia has a library of starter sites. So you do not have to start working on your site from scratch, but there is immediately a design that you will adapt to your corporate identity. As can be seen in the picture below, designs for all types of niches have been built with Elementor. To be honest, I have to say that the number is low compared to other themes.

HESTIA SPEEDTEST

Let's see how the theme performs in a test for download speed. We already know that all themes from ThemeIsle are built on speed. The results shown below were achieved with a good cache and compression plug-in installed of course.

PRICING

Hestia theme review pricing


I think the prices are a bit expensive compared to other themes. Also the fact that no starter sites are included in the free version or for 1 website.

HESTIA THEME REVIEW: CONCLUSION

I have to say that I think it is a good theme but too expensive. A much better alternative from the same builder is the Neve theme which I even rank high in my list fo best Wordpress themes for [2022]. There are more than a hundred starter sites even in the free version. I advise you to read that article of mine if you are looking for the best themes for a good price.

ROYAL ELEMENTOR (Royal Elementor vs Hestia)

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

Royal Elementor theme review 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 THEME REVIEW: SPEED

Royal Elementor Theme review loading times


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 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!

ROYAL ELEMENTOR VS HESTIA CONCLUSION

First of all thank you for reading this Royal Elementor vs Hestia comparison till the end. The biggest difference I can find between these 2 themes is that Royal Elementor has more and better demo websites to offer, and that especially applies to the free version. Furthermore, both themes load very quickly and are great for building blogs, shops or normal websites. Hestia and Royal Elementor are both recommended, I'm not picking a winner here.
