JNews and Impreza are both available through Themeforest and are therefore direct competitors. That is certainly the case since both themes can be used for the construction of very nicely looking blogs and shops. JNews vs Impreza, which is the better theme? We start with JNews which does not mean it would be better.
The JNews Theme
JNews has since been sold 17k times and is therefore doing good business. I think this theme will rise in the rankings on Themeforest. It has a very strong rating there of 4.86 out of 5. Few themes exceed that.
Its Loading Speed
Below you can see that the values for speed in Google Page Speed are 99 for mobile and 100 for desktop. I have not tested myself, the builders of the theme indicate this themselves. I assume that at least an elite cache plugin was used for this.
JNews' Page Builders
JNews Theme Review: Header Builder
You can see in the image below how easy it is to place everything in the header in the places you want. All good themes have a header builder and so does JNews. In addition, you can also choose from a large number of standard headers that you can set.
JNews Category Builder
You see, the category builder uses Elementor. Customize your category pages with the greatest of ease. Styling requires no technical knowledge.
Mega Menu Builder
Again with Elementor as the basis, the Mega Menu Builder. You can literally fill in all the boxes with the content you want there. It just doesn’t come easy. A cool tool.
JNews' Style Editor
Right click on any item on the page and you will get many options that you can adjust, for example: margin, background, padding, position, animation and much more.
Demo Websites 67+ and Homepage 150+
The number of 67 for full website demos is more than enough. In the case of JNews, practically all of these demos are for blogs, news websites, podcast websites or video websites. The theme has beautiful layouts available that you can install with a few clicks. There are also 150+ different homepage layouts, so only homepage. You have more than enough choice with JNews.
A Video-Based Site
JNews makes it easy to create a video-based website. This theme includes a lot of features that will allow you to create a video-focused site inspired by Youtube, Dailymotion and Vimeo.
- Thumbnail Preview Video
- Frontend Uploader
- One Video Template
- Video Modules New
- Profil of the User
- Subscribe to User

Paywriter System in JNews
Let others write for your site. WordPress makes it easy to manage author payments. JNews+ Pay writer system makes it easy to track author’s payments. I would say, this is perfect for the type of website one is going to build with JNews.
Paywall now with Woo-subscriptions
JNews has added a paywall to WooCommerce Subscriptions. This was requested by everyone. JNews Paywall now accepts WooCommerce Subscriptions payments. JNews clearly pays attention to their customers.
JNews Theme Review Conclusion
The Jnews theme is packed with special features for blogs and news sites, which makes this theme simply one of the best of its kind. I can’t show all these features here, you can see the rest on their own website. It should be clear that JNews is an absolute must for people who want to build and run a blog or news website.
Let’s continue this Impreza vs JNews comparison with the Impreza Theme.
The Impreza Theme
The first thing I noticed when I came to their website and clicked on “Live Preview” is how well-organized and well-arranged they present the features of their theme itself. These are intelligent people, and it bodes well for the Impreza Theme itself. Impreza came on the market in 2013 and belongs to the older guard themes that have been continuously improved to date and belong to the best. Let’s start with this review.
They indicate that they have the highest rating on Themeforest with their theme. The rating is 4.89 out of 5 and is indeed very high. I don’t know if I’ve ever seen a higher rating there, I don’t think so. Apparently people who bought this theme are extremely satisfied, very important if you are looking for a good theme to value the opinion of others.
Impreza's Loading Speed
Live Visual Builder
The title says Live Visual Builder and it is, but this is a tuned version of the already good WP-Bakery page builder. One of the first page builders that is still among the best. Impreza itself provides a number of “Builders” which are listed below.
Impreza Theme Header Builder
There are themes that offer header styles, which is not the same as a header builder. Styles give you different options for header types that can be installed with 1 click. However, a true eheader builder gives you unlimited freedom in the placement of items in your header. Impreza is therefore among the best themes in the field for headers.
Impreza's Grid Builder
The Grid Builder, in the past many people bought plugins for this kind of thing, for example photo presentation on the site. It is no longer necessary to spend money on this, it is simply in the themes themselves these days.
Their Woocommerce Builder
The Woo Builder, is something that Divi brought to the market. Divi basically develops everything that is new and the rest then copies it. A Woocommerce Builder gives you unlimited freedom to set up your cart, check out, product pages, my account, thank you page and more. I assume everyone knows what Woocommerce is, the most famous plugin for building shops.
Impreza Theme Review: Starter Sites
I count a good 80 starter sites. These are also called demos. A demo can be installed with a few clicks so that a complete website is immediately created with all important pages. You can then adapt this yourself to your house style by replacing the logo, texts and photos.
With the Grid Builder you can simply create your portfolio layouts yourself. Below is an example. For example, spin the items with the “Flip Box” that Impreza provides.
Impreza Theme Review Conclusion
Impreza scores in my review among the best themes on Themeforest. I like working with Elementor but I’ve worked with WP-Bakery for at least 5 years and it’s just a good page builder. The extras that Impreza adds makes everything even better. Impreza’s rating does not come out of the blue, it is a complete theme with which everything is possible. Recommended.
Impreza vs JNews Conclusion
I like JNews better, it is just a bit better overall specially for blogs. But there is a small problem, these themes want to see a separate expensive license for every website you want to build with it. This will quickly cost you a lot of money. You are better off with Astra or Divi that can be used on an unlimited sites and are also even better and more stable themes.
