If you are a WordPress User, thinking about using GeneratePress as your theme, then this post will give you some information as to whether its the right choice for you or not .
First of all, let me say with thousands of themes available for WordPress, it can be confusing, as to which is the best one to use and sometimes, well most of the time, the confused mind… Does nothing!
However. This WordPress Training certainly covered some good, relevant ground in terms of themes that are both free and premium
It included the two versions of GeneratePress which are the free and premium version
As a result of watching the training, I decided to bit the bullet and move from my existing hiero by aThemes to Generate Press
Now granted Hiero, looks nice and easy on the eye, but there were some aspects of it, which weren’t pleasing me, which is not what your WordPrress website is all about
Its all about the User Experence ultimately and this is where GeneratePress, actually wins hands down for me, as indeed it will for you
This blog is currently using the free version, but as you can see, its plain and simple to look at, the content is easy to read and navigation around the site is easy and fuss free… Well, click around the site and you will see for yourself
One of the great things about Generate Press is that with the free version, you have the ability to do absolutely anything you want to the site, because the customiser, which allows you to build on the front end so you can see the changes in real time, is probably one of the easiest customisers to use.
Another great benefit to using Generate Press is that the themes are designed for speed and loadability
This, if you are fairly new to the world of WordPress, is one of the most crucial factors you can have with your website.
So combine that with ultra fast hosting that you get with This Host means that your visitors stay on your site longer.
The clean white background of Generate Press, means that your content is going to stand out more and be noticeable.
So, in terms of is this theme, worth having, then while it might not be as colourful as others, it does the job and will help build the know like and trust, with your visitors, which in turn helps your Google, Bing and Yahoo Search Ranking.
Having used a lot of free themes in the past and paid or premium, themes, I have used, this one certainly lives up to the billing up the website
It has my highest recommendation
