We must be careful and choose the right theme based on the type of website we have, we must make sure that it is a theme supported by the developers, that it is well written, that it is SEO friendly, responsive and more. The use of the WordPress Plugins is essential.
As you can see, there are many features to consider when choosing a WordPress theme, relying only on the aesthetic aspect is one of the most wrong things to do. For this reason, you must first understand how to choose a WordPress theme and what features to consider.
We know that, given the high amount of WordPress themes in circulation, you can get into crisis very easily, that’s why we thought of a list of themes that ( in our opinion of WP Special ) can be considered excellent WordPress templates.
In this guide we will see some of the best WordPress themes currently in circulation, a list of templates tested over time by our team, and finally we will also see what WordPress themes to avoid and why.
WordPress themes: before you start
Ok, before leaving, just a couple of important tips to avoid looking for the wrong or “off target” WordPress theme compared to what we need. If your goal is to create an e-commerce, you must make sure that the WordPress theme you have chosen has compatibility with WooCommerce.
If you want to create a multilingual site, make sure that the theme has compatibility with WPML, Polylang or similar plugins and so on. In other words, make sure that the WordPress theme you are observing, has full compatibility with the most important plugins that you are going to use on your site.
Another tip, make sure that the chosen theme is supported and updated constantly by the developers. If the WordPress theme you are observing hasn’t been updated for over 6 months, our advice is to look for an alternative.
WordPress themes: here are the ones we recommend
We now come to the list of the best (as far as we are concerned) WordPress themes currently in circulation. Some are free, others are paid, others are free but they have the paid version or in any case additional plugins that expand the functionality of the theme itself.
The order of the WordPress themes in this list is completely random, we recommend viewing them all, watching the demos, the compatibilities, trying ( where possible ) the theme, and finally choosing the one that best suits our needs.
Waiting WordPress theme
Okay, maybe we’re a little biased in this case since this theme was developed by one of the members of WP Special , but the Wait theme easily falls into our list of the best WordPress themes .
It is a free WordPress theme (it is available in the WordPress.org directory ), fully translated into Italian, compatible with WooCommerce, WPML, Yoast SEO, Easy Digital Download, Elementor, and other page builders.
The theme options are really many, you can customize many aesthetic aspects of the theme, from the colors of each individual section, up to the size of the sections, the position of the sidebars, the type of header, footer, and much more.
