Raise your hand if you are you a WordPress Designer or Developer! Choosing the Theme to work on for web design project was very much time-consuming in the past until the appearance of page builders such as WPBakery, Elementor, Beaver, Visual Composer etc.
And honestly, I’m tired of the search for a suitable Theme and crack my head figuring out how it works. I will love to stick to 1 powerful theme for all projects if possible.
Several results appear in the google search; multipurpose and light weighted for my upcoming projects. The top 3 that appeared the most are:
I purchased both Astra and Neve to try them out for a single project. And both are impressive for its compatibility with Elementor, but it didn’t take long for me to decide on sticking with former one.
1. Cart Icon Option
There’s no way to change the look of the entire shopping cart in Neve at the moment. Astra offers:
- 6 cart icons to choose from
- customize cart menu buttons: colors, button radius
- toggle display of cart total quantity & value
2. Display Out of Stock Status
It’s important to clearly state that your product is sold out in the product listing and description.
3. Custom Layout – Header & Footer
I was blown away by this feature while reading Astra‘s documentation. Typical themes limit the design to 3~5 pre-set footer layout via widgets and customizer. Hence you may notice most websites contains a footer with 2~5 columns and plain background.
Astra not only offers similar options in the customizer, it also allows designers to change the look with page builder! No coding, no additional plugin, no limitations.
Heya, I’m still working on this article. Please wait patiently for the full article. Thanks!
