The Pressmart Theme
The Pressmart theme came on the market at the end of 2022 and is therefore brand new. The word “mart” in the title indicates that the theme was developed especially for Woocommerce. At the moment the price is still very low. Many new themes give huge discounts in the beginning to become known faster.
The Pressmart theme currently has an unblemished rating of 5 out of 5. Until now, only 11 people have bought the theme and issued a rating. However, the fact that each of them gave a 5-star rating is striking and I think it can only be a good theme. Let’s start quickly with this review.
Pressmart Theme Review: Speed
Pressmart loads fast in all browsers. Below you can see the results of one of their demo websites displayed via iframe on Themeforest. This comes at the expense of speed so the real results are better than the ones you see below, but these results are already very good in principle.
It seems as if the theme is really only concentrating on shops at the moment. All demos are for webshops. These are very well styled demos and the number of 6 gives plenty of choice.
Pressmart + Elementor
Pressmart works everywhere with the excellent Elementor page builder, one of my favorite page builders. I must honestly say that I kind of hate themes with their own brand page builder. As a web designer you quickly understand how everything works, but it is even more pleasant if you can simply work with Elementor.
Mega Menu in Pressmart
Megamenus are of course no longer the latest gadget, but a theme must of course have it. Use the Pressmart drag and drop megamenu builder to have beautiful menus on your website.
Pressmart + Woocommerce
Pressmart is a real Woocommerce theme and is therefore purely focused on the construction of webshops. The theme has a lot to offer in this area. A good example of this are the +10 shopping page layouts including off canvas sidebars, Ajax filters and Infinite Scroll.
Options for Products in Woocommerce
There is also certainly no shortage of options for the products. Countdowns, Quick-Buy, Swatches, and more. See in the image below that there is also a sticky “Add to cart” bar.
Different Single Product Lay-outs
Pressmart also lets you choose from a range of layouts for the product pages. Below you see 4 examples of beautifully styled layouts. The theme currently does not have a layout builder for these kinds of pages as the top themes have, but one cannot expect this for the current price of the theme. If the theme continues to be successful, these builders will definitely appear in future upgrades.
Special E-commerce Features
With Pressmart, your shop immediately comes across as professional to visitors. The shop has very modern features for shop, which add to the convenience of shopping. Think things like Wishlist with categories, Frequently bought Together, and a bar progressive for Free Shipping.
Advanced Ajax Cart
The Ajax Cart supports the purchase process of your visitors on both mobile and desktop. This makes putting products in the shopping cart less time-consuming because people don’t have to go back and forth, but buy via the pop up.
More Ajax functions
Your visitors can quickly filter your products by color, rating and more via the Ajax Filters without having to renew the screen. This is a top feature.
Headers in Pressmart
You can choose from 5 well thought out headers. The theme does not have a header builder, but it is so new that we certainly do not fall for it. They will certainly be working on anything and everything to give the theme more and more features. There is also a reasonable choice for footers.
Portfolios & Blogs
Maybe not the strongest point of Pressmart, but one can just build a decent blog or portfolio with it too. Good to know because a webshop can sometimes run a blog next to it.
Pressmart Theme Review Conclusion
This review is coming to an end, if you want to know more, read on on the Pressmart site. As far as I’m concerned, the theme can only be used to create webshops with it, but it is very good at that. Pressmart is a great Woocommerce theme and definitely recommended.
Let’s continue this Uncode vs Pressmart comparison with the Uncode Theme.
The Uncode Theme
The Uncode theme came on the market in 2015, and has therefore been around for years. Themes build a good reputation over time if they continuously score good ratings for so many years. That is why we have Uncode in the top for high-scoring themes on the Themeforest marketplace in this theme review.
An average rating of 4.89 out of 5 is very high on Themeforest, although there are themes such as Astra with a 4.99 rating. The Uncode theme is therefore a real competitor to the top themes on this marketplace. The total number of sales of the themes is also beautiful with more than 100k.
Uncode's loading Speed
The values shown below for Google Speed are impressive. Of course, this is under the best circumstances and does not mean to me that the theme would be so fast after installation. At the very least, everything is extra tuned with a good cache plugin and who knows what else. But one thing is certain, the theme is fast.
Mobile Load Speed
Although this is not a unique feature of course, the structure of images that are displayed to browsers is very well put together with Uncode. This ensures very good loading times on mobile phones as there is no need to load unnecessarily loaded images.
Create Webshops with Uncode
One of their most touted and proud of their features is the great partnership with Woocommerce. This immediately indicates to me that one can make very nice webshops with Uncode. Their page builder is also geared to that. There are many more features than I show you below of course, the rest you can see on their own site.
Uncode's Page Builder
Many themes with their own or let’s say private label page builders give them a name, but with Uncode it seems nameless. The name will just be Uncode page builder I assume then. The rating figures show that it certainly works well, otherwise the rating would be much lower, but I always prefer to work with a Divi or Elementor.
Demos and partial Demos
Uncode offers you 70+ full site demos and a further 550+ templates that you can use anywhere on your website. Demos can be installed with 1 click and can then be quickly adjusted by yourself. This works much faster than building all blocks yourself when you are building your site.
Uncode Theme Review: Blog
Setting up a good blog with Uncode is no problem at all. Several beautiful layouts are available. Not really anything special but I’ll mention it anyway.
Portfolio with Uncode
Endless possibilities for portfolio layouts. Again it is noticeable that they are proud of it. For portfolios you are certainly in the right place with Uncode.
Uncode Theme Review Conclusion
There is much more to tell about Uncode, but if the theme interests you, read on on their own site. Uncode strikes me as a nice theme with which everything is possible and with beautiful loading times. A problem for professional designers, however, is that I prefer to work with a page builder that I know well and not always with another. I would have preferred to see the theme with Elementor as a page builder. Despite that, Uncode is definitely recommended for beginners.
Uncode vs Pressmart Conclusion
I like Pressmart better, it is just better overall. 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.
