What’s going on guys in this article we’re gonna be talking about the top 5 free and best themes for WordPress. I’ll be rating these themes based off of three different things ease of use, clean design and customization. So depending on whether you’re a very beginner and you just want an easy theme or you’re looking to get the most customization out of your free theme. All right let’s get started.
Coming in at number five we’ve got Shapely. Shapely is an awesome theme super clean design. I love this it’s got this parallax effect. I love big dividers, it’s very clean. you can get right to the information which I really like too much clutter can be a bad thing so this theme really gets rid of that and I also like that there’s multiple buttons so you’ve got a button for pretty much anything you want to put on here which is really cool and the menu kind of sticks to the top, that’s pretty cool. so I tested all of these themes myself and for Shapley I found that you have a lot of color options actually full color control over buttons and for your text so that was really cool and it’s also very easy to edit.
On number four we’ve got Mesmerize. Mesmerize is pretty cool it’s got very colorful button design to it. everything is really popping, I like the nice bold action buttons because it allows people to find exactly what they want very quickly. so mesmerize won’t look exactly like this I actually gave it a test so that you could see what it looks like and what it’s like to edit so when you activate mesmerize. I highly recommend that you select a preset and put in all the sample data that it asks you to put in so it’ll just give you this cool little menu setup and ask you do you want to start with a preset you just click yes go through it really simple and what I found is really cool is that mesmerize has a ton of design.
Coming in at number three we’ve got Optimizer. Optimizer was pretty awesome I found it to be one of the easiest themes that I’ve ever worked with because, it has a front page editor, so if you scroll down you can see it’s 100% mobile responsive which all of these themes are that I’m showing you. it’s pretty fast search engine optimize that’s also very good so whenever I was editing with it, like I said it’s got a front page editor. it’s got full color options for buttons and backgrounds. the header can actually be any color that you want it can also be transparent. if you want so that’s pretty cool text can also be any fonts as well as any color and the whole theme actually supports wu congress which is an extra added bonus.
Coming in at number we’ve got Ocean WP. This is one of my favorite themes, I actually use it for my ecommerce tutorial. Ocean WP is fantastic, it’s got full customization and I actually only used ocean WP for the header and possibly the footer and I can change all the colors, the text and so on. it’s 100% customizable and what I do is use a page builder called elementor. An elementor is a front-end page builder where you can just drag and drop these different widgets and create a whole website just section by section it is fantastic highly recommend. it you can change text colors images buttons add buttons all over the place if you want. it’s fantastic with Elementor you can also get preset templates that other users are creating and putting online.
number one for the top five free themes is called Hestia. Hestia is awesome, it’s super clean design very easy to edit super beginner friendly just look at it. I mean it even supports WooCommerce which is pretty cool and if you go all the way down so you get team clients to subscribe to the newsletter and this one will ask you to install a few companion plugins and companion plugins basically just add these cool sections to your website that would not normally. be there when you first get the theme and you also have a contact form which looks great Hestia is super easy to use. so you actually just have to click on the pencil icon and you can edit any section you can change the text, you can change backgrounds, you can even change the accent color. so whenever you change the accent colour, it’ll change this action button, as well as the colours down for your contact page.
