GeneratePress is a WordPress theme that was generated by a guy named . Considering that’s his actual username on wordpress.org, I’d say that Tom has been around for quite some time, wouldn’t you it takes a real early adopter to get a username that’s just three letters and is such a common name. Judging by the fact that GeneratePress has been downloaded and installed well over a hundred thousand times on wordpress.org, I would say that my assessment is pretty accurate.
But all of that is just speculation, until you take a deeper look at this WordPress theme. After looking at it, I would say that this guy really knows his stuff. This is a WordPress business theme that has plenty of features and appears to be incredibly simple to use as well. With Tom’s creation, you’ll get a clean and flat canvas to paint your website upon. That’s sort of just a manner of speaking, don’t try to paint your actual monitor.
So, what does Tom have to say about his awesome looking, flat, clean and minimal WordPress theme? Well, let’s have a look.
GeneratePress is a fast, lightweight (less than 1MB zipped), mobile responsive WordPress theme built with speed, SEO and usability in mind. GP can serve as a solid base for any website, and works great with any of your favorite page builders. With an emphasis on WordPress coding standards, we ensure GeneratePress is compatible with all well-coded plugins, including major ones like WooCommerce, WPML, BuddyPress and bbPress. GeneratePress is device friendly (mobile and tablet), uses 100% valid HTML, is fully schema microdata integrated, is translated into over 20 languages by our amazing community and is cross browser compatible (IE9+). Some of our features include 9 widget areas, 5 navigation positions, 5 sidebar layouts, dropdown menus (click or hover) and a back to top button. All our options use the native WordPress Customizer, meaning you can see every change you make instantly before pressing the publish button.
That certainly is a stunning amount of features, I was really surprised to see a free WordPress theme that offers BuddyPress and bbpress support, not to mention WooCommerce. There aren’t a lot of things that offer all of those great benefits, and to find it in a free theme is really surprising and refreshing. I think that if you choose this template, you’ll not regret it. You should keep in mind, there is a premium version available on the GeneratePress website, which gives you great support and a handful more cool features. It’s something to keep in mind for those who want to take their website to another level.
