Jupiter vs BeTheme Theme comparison  💥
BeTheme vs Jupiter, two very popular Wordpress themes for years. Both Jupiter and BeTheme are currently among the best-selling themes on the Themeforest marketplace. Both themes also receive a very good rating from their users. Let's see which theme offers more value for money.
JUPITER THEME (BeTheme vs Jupiter)
We start in this Jupiter vs BeTheme comparison with the Jupiter Theme which does not automatically mean it would be better. This Jupiter review will show you what a great theme Jupiter is. With 157.245+ sales the Jupiter theme of Artbees from the start in 2013 has been one of the best-selling WordPress themes at ThemeForest. Apart from the fact that it has been in the top for almost 7 years, it has a beautiful 4.75 star rating. More than 5,000 reviews were issued at the start of , which means that practically all buyers are extremely satisfied with the theme they have purchased. Jupiter not only has everything to be able to build a stunning website, it was built on speed. The pages load very quickly and it has a good SEO.
Artbees is steadily continuing to improve this theme and provide more demos. So the totally new version Jupiter X was recently released with lots of new gadgets and now supported by the Elementor pagebuilder. We are enthusiastic about the use of the Elementor page builder because in principle there is no better one besides the Divi Builder. Elementor also offers extra extensions that will be of great help to you when building your blog, webshop or website. The Elementor pagebuilder offers enormous flexibility and together with the Customizer tools in Jupiter X is that everything you need for your project.
Jupiter X-theme review complete list of functions
Jupiter X currently has no less than 240+ different demo sites. These are divided into 8 categories. These demo sites are built using the Elementor page builder which means that this can also be used to edit the demos. Elementor page builder is the tool for making quick adjustments and building new content.
Jupiter X comes bundled with a number of top extensions to give even more power to Elementor:
- Raven - Raven has been developed by Artbees itself to add extra widgets to Elementor with which one can adjust the header & footer without having to buy the PRO version from Elementor.
- Jet add-ons - More of the same, also the JET plug-ins add more widgets and functions to Elementor to make editing your site even easier.
Built into Jupiter X are a number of premium plug-ins - including, for example, the 3 best slider plug-ins that can be found for Wordpress: Revolution Slider, LayerSlider and Master Slider, and the Bakery pagebuilder.
Header, footer and page content can easily be adjusted with Elementor. The same goes for the portfolio and blog pages thanks to the Elementor widgets that were added via the add-on plug-ins. The Worpdress Customizer is used for all other types of adjustments such as global styling, single blog pages or Woocommerce shopping pages.
We will now import one of the demo sites we discussed above in this Jupiter X review. After installing the Jupiter X theme you immediately install the required and additional plug-ins via the installation wizard.
Via the Template Area (Jupiter X >> Templates) you can quickly import a demo website by clicking on "import" and then selecting your desired demo. It is possible to preview the demo first.
New Elementor widgets and templates
Another advantage of the bundled Elementor extensions of the new Jupiter X is that you get a lot of new widgets available:
In addition, you also get new Jupiter X block templates that you can use, as well as:
Elementor Header Builder
To help you create your header, Jupiter X starts with 20 different header-templates to pick from. From there you can further customize things with your new Elementor widgets. Jupiter X supports mega menus, sticky headers, and transparent headers. And you also get the option to use different headers, depending on the device of a visitor. For example, you can choose to use a side menu with sliders on mobile devices.
Blog, archive & portfolio builder
The bundled Elementor add-ons also give you a number of widgets with which you can display blog posts and portfolio items on your website. You can use this to construct special archive pages. For example, first ask yourself what kind of content should be displayed, say blog posts vs portfolio items. Afterwards you can style the rest with Elementor and choose which elements to include such as the name of the author.
Jupiter X WordPress Customizer
For other changes we use the Wordpress Customizer with all elements installed by Jupiter. Instead of using the standard sidebar control in the Customizer, we use the custom pop-up setting frame in Jupiter X which appears as soon as you click on an item in the customizer:
Scrolling vertically can make it difficult to use the WordPress Customizer. The pop-up can be dragged across the screen so that it does not get in the way of what you are doing. The 2 most important functions in the customizer are:
Blog single layout
The first of these 2 functions is the management of your blog posts (including the archive, but adapting with Elementor) regarding layout and design. Jupiter X already comes with different choices of beautiful blog layouts. Multiple functions can be switched on and off and metadata can be added. The buttons for social sites and related messages immediately caught the eye of writer of theme reviews. These can also be turned off if desired.
Woocommerce shop owners will be particularly pleased with the many customization options for both store pages and product pages:
Other Customizer settings
In addition to the settings for Woocommerce and the single blog page in the customizer, it naturally has many more settings such as: colors, fonts, header behavior, sidebar settings, footer settings.
The 404 and maintenance page can also be adjusted, which even makes it possible to use an Elementor template for these 2 functions. A third-party maintenance mode plugin is superfluous with Jupiter X because that function is already included.
Jupiter X page/post level check
Via the meta-box post options you get additional settings in Jupiter X if you work with a single post or page. This offers extra flexibility when working with the WP editor and Elementor. Settings that can be adjusted here include spacing, sidebar usage, adjusting the layout including its width. Switching styles, header, footer or title bar settings, related posts and social can also be set here.

BE-THEME THEME (BeTheme vs Jupiter)
In this Be Theme review we pay attention to the pros and cons of this great theme. What is immediately striking is that the design is fairly simple but very stylish. As soon as people start working with the theme, they immediately realize that adjusting the theme is much easier than is the case with many other premium themes. The many functions of the theme will be examined in the remainder of this review.
Be Theme review lay-out
The Be Theme comes with no less than 600+ different demo websites that can be installed with one click. You will find several suitable themes for each niche from which you can start building your own house style. As a web designer I quickly find a suitable layout for websites that I build for clients with the Be Theme.
A few demo-examples
To be honest, I have to say that the Be Theme is perfect for creating a cool site that works really well, but for a real top website where they want to pay a lot of attention and make a great impression ... it is better to use a different premium theme. Reviews for such themes can be found in our overview of top themes for . The Be Theme is perfect for the beginner!
The developer of the BeTheme is Muffingroup, an elite seller on Themeforest with around 15 products on sale, the most are themes. Muffingroup brought in many valuations such as recommended author, monthly bestseller, power elite author and weekly bestseller. You can imagine that they deliver a solid product. The Be Theme has an average rating of 4.62 which is very high. The theme has been sold 236.283+ times since 2014.
Muffin Builder, a drag & drop pagebuilder
The Be Theme has the Muffin Builder built in to quickly make adjustments to your site. The Muffin Builder is a drag & drop page builder that is more than satisfactory and has all the necessary options. Choose one of the 600+ layouts and add items to your pages, it works easily and very well.
Be Theme review: WP Bakery Pagebuilder
Instead of using the Muffin Builder, use the WP Bakery pagebuilder, a page builder with more fame then this is possible, this is also supplied in the Be Theme. The choice is yours. This page builder also works with drag & drop and is also a great tool to be able to build beautiful pages with great freedom and to purchase them separately, you have lost no less than $ 64. Personally, this is one of my favorite page builder because it features practically all the top themes and there are many add-ons for it.
New: Elementor compatibility
Since 2021, the BeTheme has also been equipped with Elementor, and with quite a few extra widgets as shown below.
Video en Parallax Backgrounds
The BeTheme supports the use of parallax backgrounds that will leave a pleasant impression for your site with your audience. Full width and video backgrounds are also possible. Together with a decent styled page you can give your website a professional look in this way. During the writing of this BeTheme review, this kawlity of the theme quickly stood out.
20+ different header styles
The Be Theme contains 20+ standard header styles that you can use this way. The logo can be placed in multiple places together with the menu. Normally a menu is at the top but you can also use a left or right menu. The headers can be adjusted as much as you want in the Be Theme. Everything can also be adjusted in terms of fonts, font sizes and colors. The Be Theme allows different headers and even logos per page.
A short code can be generated for practically all functions in the theme. You can then use this to integrate these functions into every page, post or widget.
The Be Theme also offers you the following options: 600+ different fonts, custom Widgets, Revolution Slider, WooCommerce Ready, RTL support, Mega Menu, visual icon selector, unlimited sidebars, Bonus Premium Plug-ins, maintenance mode, Google Maps Styles, BuddyPress Ready, Styles for ContactForm7 and Gravity Forms.

BeTheme vs Jupiter conclusion
First of all, thank you for reading this Jupiter vs BeTheme comparison to the end. Jupiter comes with the Elementor pagebuilder free version, upgrading to Elementor Pro is definitely recommended. The BeTheme comes with its own MuffinBuilder, of course Elementor is much better. What BeTheme does offer is the huge library of demo layouts. This can be attractive for web designers to be able to quickly create websites for any kind of niche. The problem there is, of course, that each website has to be purchased separately, which quickly becomes very expensive.
The problem these themes have is that there are much better themes like Astra and Divi which are also sold at more attractive prices. Before making up your mind, I recommend that you read my best themes for  .
