Jupiter vs Bridge comparison


JUPITER vs BRIDGE


Bridge vs Jupiter, two very popular Wordpress themes for years. Both Jupiter and Bridge 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 (Bridge vs Jupiter)

Jupiter Theme review


We start in this Jupiter vs Bridge 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 145.000+ 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 [2021], 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.


Elementor page builder


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 headers


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.


Jupiter premium plug-ins


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.

Importing templates

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.

Elementor Header Builder

To help you create your header, Jupiter X starts with 20 different header templates to choose 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:


Jupiter 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 customizer

Woocommerce shop owners will be particularly pleased with the many customization options for both store pages and product pages:


Jupiter customizer Woocommerce


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.

Compatible with WPML

WPML-support

Ready for translation with WPML with which you can create multilingual websites.

BRIDGE THEME (Bridge vs Jupiter)

Bridge Theme review


Bridge is one of the most successful themes on Themeforest. It has had a solid place in the top 10 since its first release in 2014. In total, it has now been sold 137,000 times for a price of $ 59. The theme's rating is 4.78 out of 5 and there were 6,053 paying customers who gave it a rating. That is a very high rating, although there are also themes such as Astra that score 4.99. The Astra theme is not on Themeforest I have to say.

That high rating is due to an excellent support department, the beautiful and quick to install demos, the 2 page builders including Elementor since the last upgrade and the theme just looks very good on all different devices. Overall a top theme with many more qualities that we will now discuss individually.

Bridge review (Premium WP-Theme)

Bridge Theme review


As mentioned, Bridge has more than a good rating, for example the two page builders it offers and not the least there are. The best is the Elementor page builder that appears more and more often in the top themes as is the case here. This page builder's premium version costs $ 99 a year, but you get it for free in Bridge (free version). In addition, the WP Bakery Pagebuilder also costs about $ 60 Themeforest (one-off plus six months support).


Bridge Demos

As shown below, Bridge has very nice demos in its library of no less than 480 copies. It is sometimes confusing with demos because some themes talk about separate pages, others about complete demo sites. The latter is the case here and that is really a lot.


Bridge theme review demo's


One does not have to be an expert to be able to start his new website with one of these demos. In the wide choice of demo websites that Bridge offers, has layouts for every niche imaginable.

All these layouts are made with the page builders and with this you can also quickly adapt them to your own house style and content. If you still can't figure it out, you can always consult the extensive collection of video tutorials on their Youtube channel.


Bridge Woocommerce webshops

Bridge theme review Woocommerce


Like all themes in the top 20 and more, Bridge is built on a perfect collaboration with Woocommerce. That is the Wordpress webshop plug-in that practically everyone uses and I have been doing the same for years. There is nothing better. The theme offers various nice extras for the shops, such as quick view and wish list. If you are going to build a shop I would rather choose OceanWP or Astra which offer many more features.


Bridge Portfolios and Blogs

Bridge theme review Portfolios and Blogs


Regarding portfolios, you can choose from 7 different list layouts and 7 single layouts. The portfolios come with hover animations and you can determine the number of columns yourself. All this together is more than above average when it comes to portfolios. Bridge also does not come up short in terms of choice of blog layouts. Beautiful masonry layouts and vertical loop layouts.

Other nice features that the theme offers are: choice of 600+ Google fonts, 80+ shortcodes, translation ready with complete RTL support, testimonials, sticky header, call-2-action buttons, CSS 3 animations, Ajax page transitions, infographics and counters , Font Awesome and Font Elegant icon packs and social buttons.

Bridge Theme review conclusion

You have come to the end of my Bridge Theme review. It has become clear that the Bridge theme can be used for all types of websites and is also extremely suitable for shops. The theme looks very good on all possible devices and working with the theme is pleasant and simple, especially with Elementor. There are practically no weaknesses and the theme is well worth the $ 59 requested.

Bridge vs Jupiter conclusion

First of all, thank you for reading this Jupiter vs Bridge comparison to the end. Both of these themes load fairly quickly and are both great for creating web shops. Jupiter and Bridge both come with the Elementor pagebuilder free version, upgrading to Elementor Pro is definitely recommended.

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 [2021].
