This Year’s Most Useful WordPress Themes

The fact that Enfold is ThemeForest’s best rated top seller is reason enough to give it a closer look. Enfold, with its drag and drop layout editor is extremely user friendly. Simply drag and drop your content into place. An especially useful feature is its ability to import demo files with a single click, select the features you want from several demos, and include them all in a layout in one installation. The default demo alone has become a classic, but there is much more to work with.

You’ll love what the Template Builder’s slider and gallery features can do for you, especially when building a portfolio is an important task on your website to do list. There are plenty of other interactive elements as well, and you will be more than pleasantly surprised when you see your results on the latest high resolution displays.

Enfold’s support staff stands ready to answer your pre-sales questions and give you whatever assistance you may need once you get started. Their support hotline is available 24/7.



BeTheme advertises itself as the biggest WordPress theme ever, and they have a point. This multipurpose premium themes boasts 160 (and counting) pre-built websites, more than two-thirds of which are multi-page websites. Once you’ve installed the pre-built website of your choice (it takes but a single click), you can proceed with lightning speed by using either Muffin Builder or Visual Composer as your page builder.

If however, you want to start with a blank screen, just select a base grid, a layout or sidebar configuration, one of 13 header styles, and away you go!

If your objective is to create a website page in minutes instead of in hours, and have your website up and running in hours instead of days, Be Theme could be exactly the solution you are looking for.
