I’m not over-exaggerating to say that this is the BEST theme that I’ve tried since I started using WordPress back in 2007.
And for the last 10 years, I have tested HUNDREDS of themes including both free and paid.
The great thing about GeneratePress is that it’s actually a multi-purpose theme which means you can use it to create a lot of different templates very easily.
But unlike all the multi-purpose themes you can find on ThemeForest, this one is incredibly easy to use and most importantly it’s super lightweight and fast.
Like lightning fast.
Plus, this theme is modular which means you can activate and deactivate features that you don’t use which save resources and optimizes for loading speed at the same time.
It’s also very developer-friendly. The code is clean and organized. I showed it to my developers and they absolutely loved it.
I know you might be wondering…
Honestly, I’m a big fan of Thrive Architect and other plugins they provide but when it comes to making themes, the team at ThriveThemes.com is not that good.
Their themes don’t look very good design wise, look even worse on mobile and still have a few things that are not optimized for SEO.
I’ve been using FocusBlog by ThriveThemes but never been fully happy with it. I also had to make quite a few customizations in order to make it good.
The reason why I haven’t moved until now is because their themes work better with Thrive Content Builder (now Thrive Architect) and support some cool features like ability to disable some elements on the page or to switch between posts/page layout.
But all of these are available in GeneratePress. And Thrive Architect can work smoothly with GP too.
The last thing I want to mention is…
GeneratePress is extremely affordable.
They have a free version which has been installed by over 1 MILLION websites. With the free version, you have a very basic fast-loading theme which looks good on both mobile and desktop.
But the real power of it is unlocked when you upgrade to the Premium version which costs only $39.95 for lifetime usage and 1-year of updates and support.
Just $39.95 annually for a powerful theme that you can use on UNLIMITED websites.
Just to compare, a multi-purpose theme on ThemeForest on average costs about $50 and FocusBlog by ThriveThemes costs $67 for unlimited usage.
So at $39.95 GeneratePress is a no brainer.
