Join me in this video where I share my top 3 favorite FREE WordPress themes + a new kid on the block that seems bound to steal my geek heart!
Big Question: Which theme should I choose??
Not-So-Perfect-Answer: There’s no perfect choice, but there are a few things we should look for in good themes. And if you’re using Elementor, Beaver Builder, or Brizy as website builders, a theme is not sooooo important as it used to be.
Here’s what you should look for in a theme:
- Trusted developer
- Excellent support
- Works with page builders
- Handles global styling
- Logical organization
- Works well without a page builder too!!
- SEO and accessibility
- Solid options for header and navigation menus
- Doesn’t try to be jack of all trades
Here are my favorite top 3 free WordPress themes:
- Astra (*) → Functionality and features
- GeneratePress → Stability and reliability
- Page Builder Framework → Simplicity
