Zakra Theme Review for [2021]

Zakra Theme review


Het Zakra Theme has a free as well as a Pro-version. The free version is very popular and as it should be, the Pro version is of course 5x better. I will discuss both versions. Zakra himself states to be a super-fast loading light-weight theme with 60 great demo websites that can be installed with 1 click.

Zakra theme review: Rating

Zakra theme review rating


Ehen we go to Wordpress.org and check Zakra's rating there, is it practically 5 out of 5. There are few themes with a better rating because there are out of 400 people who have given a rating, only 6 or 7 people who voted less than 5 stars. Zakra has been installed on more than 60,000+ websites and 395 people gave a rating, so that is very reliable.

Zakra theme review: Demos

Zakra Theme review Woocommerce


Just like any other self-respecting WP theme these days, Zakra has ready-to-use demo websites that can be installed with 1 click, Zakra currently offers 60. Some of these are only available to Pro users. The Zakra demos are of very good quality and the speed of the site is maintained with these themes. You can see the Zakra demos live via their website.

The nice thing about demos is that you can make a quick start with them. The website is already ready, but still with the wrong photos and texts in principle. So place your logo in it, adjust the texts and photos and you are well on your way to having your own site.

Zakra theme review: Webshops

With Zakra, the integration of the popular Woocommerce is a piece of cake and the theme is completely prepared. Zakra gives you the opportunity to style the shop pages how you want without any HTML knowledge. The web shops that are built with this theme have a very professional appearance.

Zakra theme review: Speed

Zakra Theme review loadingtime Google GtMetrix


In the meantime, no theme wants to lag behind in terms of loading times or speed, as Google attaches more and more value to this. Zakra is therefore also built with a fast code that ensures good loading times in browsers. Zakra has the Vanilla Javascript instead of jQuery which is about 25% faster, this is quite unique although more and more top themes use it. You can see from the images above that Zakra with a cache plug-in performs extremely well in all tests, these are top loading times.

Zakra theme review: Page builder

Zakra Theme review page builders


The Zakra theme comes standard with the Gutenberg page builder. Although the theme is compatible with any of the best page builders out there, I recommend Elementor page builder. If it fits your budget the pro version otherwise the free version which is also very good.

Zakra theme review: Header builder

Zakra Theme review header options


Zakra has extensive settings that allow you to style the header exactly the way you want it. No technical or HTML knowledge is required to adjust the header. You can see in the image above what the Zakra header has to offer. Of course, this only applies to the pro version.

Zakra theme review: Other features

Apart from the very good header options, Zakra has a lot more but I want to keep this review short and sweet so that you don't get bored, further information can of course be read on their own site, much better than here. Zakra Pro offers you quite a few different blog layouts, a great footer builder, all types of sidebars, special fonts, and good menu options although I don't believe they offer a mega menu.

Zakra theme review: Conclusion

Thank you for reading my Zakra theme review for [2021] to the end. I think the Zakra theme is already very good as a free version. The pro version is also great although there are of course better themes. The theme offers beautiful demos, many customization options. The theme works perfectly with Elementor together, my favorite page builder. This is one of the better themes available for Wordpress.
