What wordpress theme do you use?

I've been looking for a wordpress theme for my online portfolio. I cobbled a site together with a free theme, but it doesn't look great. Anyone have a theme they like?

Re: What wordpress theme do you use?

I've used Avada for three sites. It's one of the most popular themes out there and support is excellent. However, it may be overkill for a portfolio site.

Avada also has a lot of bells and whistles which is fine if you use them but it's a drawback in that there are more options to wade through and the more options and such often means a slower site.

I'm getting ready to buy a theme called Module. I wanted something that was a good balance between simplicity and flexibility.

It's positioned as a minimalist theme for photography but it may be fine for other mediums as well.

Thanks Jay! Module looks like it might do what I need.

If you happen to get Module, please let us know what you like (and don't like) about it - that would benefit anyone else shopping for a theme.

Including me. The time monster hasn't granted me permission to buy it yet.

Re: What wordpress theme do you use?

I believe I'm using Twenty Sixteen, but since I'm building my whole website with Elementor, it's completely custom.

I can highly recommend Elementor. It's a visual builder and comes with both free options and a paid version (which you pay a fee for per month, but once you cancel your subscription you're still able to use the Pro features you had access to before.. you simply won't be able to use any new stuff they release). The fact that it's a visual 'building blocks' plugin makes it sooo much easier to get the website to look how you want it to. And of course there are also templates you can use if you don't want to spend time designing.

There are loads - too many! I am using Angiemakes right now.
I hear Newspaper8 is very popular. Also Divi (with builder) and Studiopress are well rated. Check out Themeforest for the most popular or well rated ones.

Re: What wordpress theme do you use?

I tried Module and I regretted it. Their support took 7 days to respond to me on 3 separate occasions. That's unacceptable. I got a refund.

I then bought a theme called Total by WPExplorer. Total has a visual builder, lots of templates, and for all it does it's not too difficult to use. Note that there is a learning curve, but in my opinion it's manageable.

The best part is the support. Support responses are quick and the support team goes the extra mile to make sure all goes well. For someone who is not too swift technically speaking, support is very important to me.
