Hello vs Generatepress

Hello vs Generatepress

Here we compare Hello vs Generatepress. As we know, Hello is the free theme that is connected to the Elementor page builder. Generatepress is another theme that is also very popular on WordPress.org but also has a very good pro version.

The Hello Theme

I’m starting this Hello Elementor Theme review to indicate that Hello is a great theme and really delivers a fast-loading website. On the other hand, that is not so strange because there is practically nothing in it. The good thing is that Elementor itself can do a lot and certainly with the pro version. Let’s discuss point by point why you should or should not use the Hello Theme for your new website.

Hello's Rating 4.7/5

The Hello Theme now has more than a million active installations. Understandable because everything works perfectly if you use Hello as a basis to work with Elementor. Somehow, there are often people who give highly valued items only 1 star. I consider this group to be one that didn’t understand anything and probably does this with other themes as well.

Hello Theme Review Speed

Hello is as seen below even very fast without a cache plugin. We ran 2 speed tests on Hello on the GtMetrix website, the first without using the best cache plugin out there called WP-Rocket and the second with the plugin installed.

Hello Child Theme

Voor het geval u van plan bent om aanpassingen aan de code van het theme te gaan maken in de toekomst is het verstandig met een child theme te werken. Een fatsoenlijk webdesigner maakt zijn child theme in een paar minuten, maar als u geen ervaren designer bent en geen zin heeft om te puzzelen hoe dit moet dan kunt u hier op Github het standaard child theme voor Hello Elementor downloaden.

Elementor Page Builder

It makes little sense to use Hello Elementor without the Elementor page builder. Hello serves as the basis for the all-round page builder. Elementor is used on more than 2 million WordPress websites and is steadily gaining popularity. Both the free and pro versions are just really good. The differences are in the number of widgets available, the use of templates and a wider range of demo websites and some other things. Buying the pro version is definitely recommended if you can spare $50.

This website was created with Elementor Pro and I really enjoy working with it. I also work with other page builders like the DiviBuilder but Elementor is one of my favorites.

Hello is the perfect Starter Theme

As mentioned before, after installing Hello you will see that there is really nothing left in your site. For example, there is no sidebar or header, there are no settings via the “Customizer”. That’s all there after you’ve installed Elementor, so don’t worry.

Hello Templates & Demo Library

Elementor provides you with a demo library with which you can install a complete demo website with one click. Depending on the version of Elementor you are using (free-pro-expert) you will have more and better designs available in the Kit Library. You also have access to templates.

So much more can be said about Elementor but I advise you to read on on the Elementor website or read my review for Elementor itself.

Hello Theme Review Conclusion

You have probably noticed in this Hello Elementor Theme Review that I am certainly enthusiastic about the theme, although there is practically nothing in it. For experienced people it is a great theme to have a super fast loading website. For laymen it is advisable to start with a good design that can be installed via the Template Kits in Elementor. If you prefer to work with a theme that is not entirely dependent on Elementor, but still works perfectly with it, just like Hello, then the Astra Theme is an absolute must.

Let’s continue this Generatepress vs Hello Review with the Generatepress Theme.

Generatepress Theme

This Generatepress review will quickly show you whether this theme is suitable for building your latest project. According to the builders, Generatepress has been developed for the construction of the perfect shops, corporate websites and blogs. In addition, the theme had to produce lightning-fast loading times.

Generatepress' Rating

So far, only a theme like Divi or Astra can compete with Generatepress’ rating. Of these, only Astra has a free version with a near-perfect rating of 5/5. Generatepress has this too, there are almost no people who give bad grades.

Apart from the free version of Generatepress that can be downloaded here, the theme also has a very good pro version.

Generatepress Review Demos

A while ago, Generatepress everywhere indicated that it is so compatible with Elementor and Beaverbuilder. This is still the case but since the introduction of their own block builder many of the demos are before that. Generatepress currently has a total of 60+ demo website that can be installed with 1 click. Watch the video to get a good impression about their demos.

Generatepress' Speed

I personally don’t know of any faster loading themes than Generatepress except maybe Astra. The theme is really insanely fast, comparable fast to minimalist themes that can do nothing. But Generatepress can do a lot and we are dealing with a special theme here. Below is how their own site loads in a second.

Generatepress' Schema Mark-up

Already built into Generatepress is the Google Schema Mark-Up. It automatically generates rich snippets for your pages, making them easier to find and more frequently displayed.

Generatepress & Woocommerce

Finally, I would like to indicate in this Generatepress review that this theme is also great for building online stores. It offers many features that give your shop a professional impression and building the shop is incredibly fast and smooth. Check the video if you have 2 minutes.

Generatepress Review Pricing

This theme has very reasonable prices. For $59 you can install it on 500 websites, so basically unlimited. View the Generatepress pricing page here.

Generatepress Review Conclusion

Generatepress is installed as a free version on 4 million sites and the pro version on 90,000 sites. This is of course not for nothing and indicates what a good theme this is. The theme is indeed lightning fast, very versatile and has beautiful designs that can be adjusted with elite page builders or their own Block Editor. Definitely recommend this theme.

Hello vs Generatepress Conclusion

You have come to the end of this Hello vs Generatepress comparison. Both themes are very good in the free version, but Generatepress of course has much more to offer than Hello, which is 100% minimalist. This makes it much more pleasant to work with Generatepress. As for the pro version of Generatepress, it cannot of course be compared with Hello and is head and shoulders above Hello.
