OCEAN-WP REVIEW (Ocean-WP vs Botiga)

Ocean-WP was built for webshops and fast loading times...

OceanWP Theme review


In this OceanWP Theme review we discuss the free and premium versions of this beautiful theme. The OceanWP Theme has been installed on 901.000+ Wordpress websites and downloaded 2.5 million times. Those are numbers that will stand out. Why is this theme so popular? When looking at OceanWP's rating, it is immediately noticeable that it is also very high. The rating that can be practically rounded to 5/5 as shown in the picture below is of the quality of that of Astra and Generatepress which are also OceanWP's closest competitors.

OceanWP: Strengths

OceanWP Theme Strengths

OceanWP Theme review: Speed


The main difference between OceanWP and the 2 aforementioned closest competitors is that OceanWP has put the emphasis more on top design (especially for web shops) and Astra and Generatepress on speed. OceanWP is also built on speed but not as forced as the other 2. The image above shows that OceanWP scores 98%, ie of 100 sites, 2 were faster than OceanWP. It is important to consider for yourself what is more important. A site that loads everything within a second can of course be called top fast and speed is one of the good features of OceanWP which makes it so popular.

OceanWP: Beautiful design

So the design is something that has been given more than enough attention by the OceanWP team and it shows. The theme shows a beautiful design on all devices and the demo websites offered are of very high quality. See photo below.

And for Woocommerce...

The OceanWP theme has also been perfected on Woocommerce, the most popular webshop system in the world for Wordpress. Not only for customization of its design, but it offers a host of conversion enhancing gadgets. For example the so-called native cart pop-up. After you put an item in your basket, a pop-up will appear to encourage you to pay. This alone would bring about 8% more conversion. There are a number of Woocommerce modules that you can view on their own site.

To be fair, we have to admit in this review for OceanWP that the theme is one of the best for creating webshops. If you want to have a perfectly working shop that looks fantastic, OceanWP is your theme.

OceanWP: Core extensions

The premium version offers access to all core extensions (see photo below). The possibility to build a full screen site with scroll, the practically mandatory cookie notification, a customizable pop-up login, the removal of the OceanWP label in the footer, beautiful portfolios, the aforementioned Woocommerce extensions, a sticky footer , and hooks (more for professional builders).

OceanWP review: Video

In the video below from OceanWP itself, you will quickly be made aware of the benefits of the OceanWP theme. The video only lasts 48 seconds.



OceanWP: Pricing

The regular "to-go" premium price is $ 59. Especially if you are going to use the theme for a shop, this is a very good price. There are practically no better themes for building web shops. Now during the quarantine you get the premium version for $ 31 already.

OceanWP theme review: Conclusion

You have come to the end of our OceanWP theme review. In the first place thanks for reading the complete article. My conclusion is that OceanWP is a fantastic theme that is definitely worth the money. The theme is perfect for web shops, has a great design, is easy to operate and loads very quickly. That's basically all a good theme needs. It just lacks a good page builder to finish it.

OceanWP works perfectly with Elementor, but also with one of the following elite page builders: Divi Builder, BeaverBuilder and Thrive Architect.

BOTIGA THEME (Ocean-WP vs Botiga)

Botiga is a brand new minimalist Woocommerce theme...

Botiga Theme review


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.

BOTIGA RATING

Botiga theme review rating


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.

BOTIGA LAY-OUT

Botiga Theme review Lay-Out


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

Botiga Theme review webshop checkout 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

Botiga Theme review laadtijden


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.


BOTIGA'S EDITOR

Botiga Theme review Elementor page builder


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

Botiga Theme review 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

Botiga Theme review 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.

BOTIGA: BLOG

Botiga Theme review Blog Layouts


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.

Ocean-WP vs Botiga conclusion

You have come to the end of my Ocean-WP vs Botiga comparison. These 2 themes both load very quickly, which is not much different. For a free theme, Botiga is fantastic for building webshops. Yet Ocean-WP wins by far from Botiga in this area. I have Ocean-WP in the best Woocommerce themes for [2021] here in second place, and a free Woocommerce theme like Botiga is not in it. If you are looking for a good theme for your new website and especially if it concerns a shop, take Ocean-WP. Ocean-WP is very all-round and Botiga is mainly suitable for creating a webshop.
