What WordPress Theme Do You Recommend?

One of the questions I get asked the most is what WordPress theme do I use?

Every website that I build for personal use or for clients is built with iThemes Builder.

Why I Use iThemes Builder

iThemes Builder is an older theme that I chose many years ago when I first learned WordPress. The biggest reason I still use it today is simple – if it’s not broke don’t fix it!

Since it’s an older theme, it’s not as beginner-friendly compared to newer drag-and-drop themes that exist today. I think that there are better themes available now for beginners, which is why I typically don’t recommend iThemes Builder publicly. However, if anyone asks I have no problem telling them what theme I use!

The main selling point for me was they let you build custom code sections with PHP. Since I came from web design from a coding perspective, the ability to use custom code was more important to me than a drag-and-drop builder.

Divi Page Builder Theme

If you are looking for a drag-and-drop builder, my recommendation is Divi by Elegant Themes.

I learned about Divi through my subscribers and I am in the process of putting together several child themes that give paid members a head start on building their websites. You can upload the backup & save yourself a few hours getting WordPress setup correctly.

So, keep an eye out and subscribe to the Business Plan membership to get notified when new themes drop!

Popular Theme Recommendations

I recently took a survey with my subscribers and the two most popular themes (outside of Divi) were OceanWP and Astra.

Another good page builder is Elementor, a theme independent plugin that works similar to Divi.
