Woodmart Theme & Woocommerce

As indicated earlier, Woodmart is a real Woocommerce, which means that not only are the demos for shops beautifully styled, but you can easily adjust the layout of the products. In the view below you can see that this is done by means of the Elementor page builder.

Page Builders

We continue this Woodmart Review with its page builders. The theme comes with 2 different page builders, Elementor and the WP-Bakery page builder. Only Elementor would be good enough for my taste, but WP-Bakery is certainly not bad.

Woodmart Theme Load Speed

Both the CSS and Javascript have been greatly improved since the last version. The theme produces pretty fast loading times, which is more than average. The image shows the results indicated by them themselves. If you do a test yourself, make sure you have installed a good Cache Plugin otherwise you will get distorted results.

Woodmart Theme Header Builder

More and more themes are coming with a real header builder that gives you total control over the header and this is certainly a great asset to a theme. In the meantime, this should not be missing in a theme, and with Woodmart you are in the right place.

Woodmart Theme Review Conclusion

The Woodmart Theme has many more features to offer such as Ajax Cart, Mega Menu, Quick Shopping, Sliders, Social Login, Multi-language, White Label and more. If your interest has been piqued, read on on their own site via the button above. As the rating suggested at the beginning, this is a great theme and I personally couldn’t find anything bad about it. What I do want to note is that the theme requires a separate license for every website you have. This quickly becomes expensive if you have multiple websites. A Theme like Divi would then be a better alternative.

Let’s continue this Woodmart versus Astra Review with the Astra Theme.

The Astra Theme

The Astra Theme has been very popular for years. In other words, the free version of Astra is firmly in place on WordPress.org. In addition, Astra also has a very well-selling pro version which is mainly known for its beautiful demo websites that are pre-prepared for various page builders. Over a million websites currently run on Astra. Let’s start this Astra Theme review with its rating as I always do.

Below you can see the fantastic rating and comments that Astra gets from users. Where it says “Astra theme and Element” Elementor is of course meant, indeed a more than great combination to use Astra and Elementor together within 1 website. Obviously anyone giving a 1 star rating to the number one theme on WordPress.org has no clue about theme or works for the competition.

Astra Theme Review Demo Websites

Let’s go straight to one of the strongest points of the Astra Theme, namely the many demo websites. These demo websites, the so-called Starter Templates, are made to further embroider with your favorite page builder. The demos were made with Elementor, Beaverbuilder, Brizy and Gutenberg. Well, I’m not that impressed with the last one, but the others are 3 top page builders. This means that if one of these 3 is your favorite page builder, the Astra theme can be your favorite theme.

As seen above one can just choose for which page builder demo website will be shown. Astra has one of the best full website demo’s that I have ever seen in themes and plenty as for just elementor there should be like 180 different designs already.

Astra's Woocommerce Possibilities

The WP-Astra Theme was built from the start on having super fast loading times and it had to excel in the possibilities and beautiful designs for webshops and that intention has been successful. The options that Astra offers for E-commerce websites are unprecedented and practically surpass any other theme, including specialized Woocommerce themes.

Below I´ll show a few of the many features Astra offers for Woocommerce that make your webshop to a professional looking online store.

The Astra Theme has about 15 such features for webshops. It simply has all the gadgets one could wish for.

Astra comes with Schema Mark Up

WP-Astra comes standard with Schema Mark Up which adds rich snippets to your articles. That way your articles will be displayed in Google’s search result in a more effective way as seen in the image below, with or without Schema. I have tried it on an HTML-website, and implementing Schema by hand is just to much work and errors will be made. Astra adds the snippets automatically and if your article changes, so will the Schema Mark Up.

Do you want someting even better than Astra’s basic Mark Up, then go for the more professional version of it:

Astra Speed

WP-Astra’s basic code is only 25kb which makes Astra one of the fastest themes out there, if not the fastest. Have a look at the images below, if necessary give them a click to enlarge them. On the left we see a speedtest done at GtMetrix with stunning results. On the right you see what one of the most famous SEO companies thinks of the speed of the Astra Theme.

Astra Theme Extra Info

If you are planning to set up a website with WP-Astra for teaching courses, it is good to know that the theme is fully compatible with Learndash and LifterLMS. In addition, Astra has an excellent SEO, is 100% responsive on all devices. It’s all too much to explain here in this review so I advise you to take a look at the Astra website itself.

Astra Theme Review Conclusion

The Astra Theme excels on several fronts, including speed, countless options for webshops, beautiful designs that can be installed with 1 click and that for 4 different page builders. In addition, Astra has built-in Schema as standard and is compatible with all commonly used plugins. This makes Astra one of the best-selling themes of the moment and I can recommend it to everyone, especially in combination with Elementor Pro.
