Choosing the best WordPress template for your blog or website can be hard, especially with the incredible variety of options out there. There are thousands of free themes, hundreds of premium ones, and there is also the option of designing one from scratch. Different niches ask for different themes, too.
A website that tells you to claim your Red Flush welcome casino bonus should look different than one that speaks to you about the latest news, the latest fashion trends, and so on. Actually, choosing a theme for a website to review Red Flush games, Red Flush promotions, and similar topics is relatively easy: most (free or premium) magazine-style templates will do, with a bit of tweaking, of course. If your blog is digging deeper into a niche, though, you might want to make a more careful choice, like investing in a premium theme. As I said before, the amazing variety of themes available online make it hard to make up your mind – the list of last year’s most used premium WordPress templates might give you a few hints on what to choose for 2017.
Divi (Elegant Themes)
Divi has become the most popular theme Elegant Themes has to offer. The theme, offering incredible customization options and an amazing flexibility, has proven to be the interface of choice for the largest number of Elegant Themes users. No wonder – it has a unique set of features, like 46 completely customizable content elements that you can easily mix and match inside its “click & type” visual editor. Divi allows its users to export their best layouts for later use, or simply choose one of the 20+ pre-made ones for ease.
In Evanto’s roundup of the best themes of 2016, ThemeFusion’s Avada has taken the top spot. According to Themeforest, the theme is used on over 280,000 blogs and websites, proving its versatility and ease of use.
The Avada theme can be used for everything from a personal blog to a business website, offering the flexibility of a drag-and-drop editor as well as the possibility to save and share layouts with others. One of the most interesting features of the theme is its “Mobile Visibility System”, allowing webmasters to control what is seen on the screen depending on its size.
Versatility and ease of use seem to be the most important features for many, but user-friendliness can’t be ignored either – this is why Enfold, a theme by Kriesi, remains one of the best-selling themes in 2016. The customer comments on the theme are more than convincing: most of them praise its clean and simple look, its top-notch customer support, its flexibility, and its variety of features.
