Inspiro vs Blocksy Theme comparison  💥
INSPIRO THEME (Blocksy vs Inspiro)
In this Inspiro Theme review we take a look at the most important features of this theme . It has recently made a rapid rise to a high listing on Wordpress.org. This suggests that we are dealing with a very good theme here.
Inspiro Theme review: Rating
If we check Inspiro's rating on Wordpress.org, we see that practically all raters gave 5 stars except for a few haters. The theme has now been installed on more than 10.000 websites. That is a pretty high number for a relatively new theme.
Inspiro Theme review: Demo's
The Inspiro theme offers 10 beautiful demo layouts. We are talking about the pro version here, the free version only has 1 I believe. The free version is often downloaded because despite the lack of many demos, this theme is extremely suitable for people who want to work with a Youtube or Vimeo background or slider. That is the specialty of this theme.
Inspiro Theme review: Webshops
Inspiro doesn't excel at building webshops but the pro version doesn't come alone, you can choose from 36 different themes that are included in the WP-Zoom membership, many of which are better equipped for webshops than Inspiro. The theme is 100% compatible with Woocommerce, but if you are going to build a webshop then choose a theme like Astra or another theme from my top 10 for webshop themes.
Inspiro Theme review: Speed
The Inspiro 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.
Inspiro Theme review: Pagebuilders
The Inspiro theme uses its own page builder by default, but is compatible with the Elementor page builder, 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.
Inspiro Theme review: Style Kits
Inspiro offers 6 different very extensive Style Kits. In the image below you can see how easy this works, choose a style and you're done. Smaller adjustments can be made to the style later.
Video Autoplay op Mobiel & Tablet
In its own words, Inspiro is unique in the fact that both self-hosted, Youtube and Vimeo videos play automatically on all devices. So also on tablet and mobile.
Inspiro Theme review: Conclusion
It is clear that a lot is possible with Inspiro. In terms of video backgrounds and video slider, this theme is at the highest level and is therefore often downloaded as a free version via Wordpress.org. The autoplay function on mobile devices is of course also great.
As soon as we talk about the pro version, we are suddenly talking about 36 different niche themes that are included in the membership. Although each theme can be purchased separately, this is so stupid because the price difference is very small. In the pack are themes for every task and niche you can imagine. WP-Zoom has put together a very complete selection here. Memberships usually deliver a lot more bang for the buck than just a theme, just like Divi is the case.
BLOCKSY THEME (Blocksy vs Inspiro)
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.
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
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.
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
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
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 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
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.
BLOCKSY VS INSPIRO CONCLUSION
First of all, thanks for reading this Blocksy vs Inspiro comparison to the end. There are no major differences between Blocksy and Inspiro, they are both very good themes. But even though both Inspiro and Blocksy are worth their money, I have to advise against them both because there are much better themes available for the same money. My tip is buy Divi, the best selling and valued theme in the world or possibly Astra if you are using a lightning fast theme.
