Porto vs Hub Theme comparison  💥
Hub vs Porto, two very popular Wordpress themes for years. Both Porto and Hub 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.
PORTO THEME (Hub vs Porto)
I will discuss here the Wordpress version of the Porto Theme. There is also an HTML 5 version that has been around much longer, that you can find here. But we will discuss that another time. The Porto Theme has risen sharply lately, although it has always been among the best themes.
Porto theme review: Rating
When we check out Porto's rating on Themeforest, it is indeed 4.92 out of 5. I know the site and all the themes very well there, and 4.92 may very well be the highest possible rating for the 20 best-selling themes. There are themes with a higher rating, but not on Themeforest. Porto has been sold over 65.484+ times and 2855 people have given a rating, so that is very reliable.
Porto theme review: Demos
The theme has gone through some pretty extreme improvements that we're going to talk about now. Just like any other self-respecting WP theme nowadays, Porto has ready-made demo websites that can be installed with one click. They have added 30 of these since the last upgrade, bringing the total to almost 100.
The nice thing about demos is that you can make a quick start. The website is already with the wrong photos and texts in principle. So put your logo in it, adjust texts and photos and you are well on your way to having your own site.
Porto theme review: Webshops
66 multipurpose demos are available for all conceivable niches that can be used to create beautiful corporate and private websites. It is great that no fewer than 33 demos are ready-made shops. From here you can quickly start a webshop.
Porto theme review: Speed
In the meantime, no theme wants to be left behind in terms of loading times or speed, as Google attaches more and more value to this. Porto is therefore also built with a fast code that ensures good loading times in browsers. Porto also has a built-in speed wizard that helps you make your website even faster, which is quite unique. Of course you can also do this yourself if you read my tutorial here.
Porto theme review: Pagebuilders
The Porto theme comes standard with the in my opinion very good WP Bakery Pagebuilder. A solid page builder that has several third-party plugins available to extend the elements. The theme is also fully compatible with the Elementor page builder, one of the best out there in this area. Among the demos you will find about twenty layouts that have been made with it, so that you can work with Elementor after you install one.

Porto theme review: Header builder
The header is like a grid where you can drag and drop elements. So it is easy even for laymen to build exactly the header they had in mind. A cool tool! We can't help but give the full marks for this in this Porto theme review.
Porto theme review: Elements
Porto currently offers 33 elements for the Bakery Pagebuilder, which, as mentioned before, is easy to expand with plugins.
Porto theme review: Revolution Slider
The Revolution Slider is by far the best slider plugin. There are a lot of options, which takes some getting used to if you do not know the plug-in yet and also after a major upgrade as has only happened with the new version 6. However, the documentation of the plug-in is very good, which means that you will quickly discover how everything works. Google searches also always help me with that. The good side is that once you get used to it, you don't want anything else. There are practically no limits to what it can do and everything works smoothly.
Porto theme review: Conclusion
I think the Porto theme is great. The demo layouts are beautiful, the setup of the theme is quick and easy, and it has a good loading time. The theme is indeed very suitable for building shops and the header builder is of course fantastic. The price is just standard for themes on Themeforest so that's okay too. The theme offers great value for money.
HUB THEME (Hub vs Porto)
In this Hub Theme review for  we look at why this theme is gaining popularity so quickly. In their own words, 2 years of preparation to create the best theme ever. The question is whether she succeeded. Until now, the theme has a perfect rating! The theme has many features and no less than 600+ pre-made designs to start with in an impressive 60+ complete website demos.
Below you can see the average rating of the Hub Theme. On the Themeforest Marketplace, this is the highest score that you will find for Wordpress themes, higher than 5.0 is not possible. With this, the theme keeps up to date with successful themes such as Astra and Divi that also have a rating of 5.0 but they are not sold on the same marketplace.
HUB INSTALLATION AND DEMOS
We recommend using the 600+ ready-to-go design sections or installing one of the 60+ ready-to-go website demos. As a newcomer to the market, Hub already offers so many very beautiful complete designs for all types of niches and shops. There will of course be more and more.
Hub-Theme comes with a great Visual Editor. Normally I am not fond of themes with their own Editors, but this one is really special and soon everything can be edited with Elementor.
We perform a speed test with the theme under quite optimal conditions, so with cache plug-in and all images optimized. This theme indicates that it is specialized on loading times and the results are indeed very good as can be seen in the image below.

HUB THEME REVIEW SHOPS
With regard to web shops, the Hub theme also delivered an extremely good result. This theme can compete with the best themes for web shops in the market (Woocommerce). The image below shows a few examples of very professional looking shops. Hub also offers features such as Ajax search, Infinite product loading on a single page, Off-canvas cart and filters.
With the ThemeBuilder you can style all the different pages of your shop exactly as you had in mind. This applies to check-out pages, product pages, category pages and all other pages in the shop. You do not need HTML or other technical knowledge for this, everyone can do that with the ThemeBuilder.
HUB THEME PORTFOLIOS
Another very strong point of the Hub Theme are the beautiful portfolio layouts. No fewer than 13 pre-defined grids from which to choose.
HUB THEME REVIEW: CONCLUSION
In short, this is one of the best themes available to build blogs, portfolios, websites or web shops. The only thing missing is the cooperation with the Elementor pagebuilder but the theme has just been released and they are working hard on it. The fact remains, however, that the Hub Theme, like all other themes that are sold on the Themeforest marketplace, requires a separate license for each site you have. That is simply too expensive. The perfect theme for shops, blogs & websites is Divi and Astra is a very close second. These themes can be installed on multiple sites and the Divi Theme for example costs only $ 89, and comes with the Divibuilder full version!
PORTO VS HUB CONCLUSION
First of all, thank you for reading this Porto vs Hub comparison to the end. Both of these themes load fairly quickly and are both great for creating webshops. Porto comes with the Elementor page builder free version, upgrading to Elementor Pro is definitely recommended . Hub comes with Elementor + a tuned version of WP-Bakery. I obviously prefer working with Elementor.
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 .
