5 Customizable WordPress Themes Like OceanWP
OceanWP Theme

OceanWP is a lightweigh but highly customizable and extendable theme for wordpress, built with speed and responsiveness in mind. It works well with the most popular page builders so there is no wonder if you are looking for more themes like OceanWP. I’m going to highlight a few themes similar themes that can be used to achieve the same results.

How to pick best candidate among all themes like OceanWP?

When you have to decide for a wordpress theme based on which you want to build a unique looking site there are a few factors to consider:

  • How easy is to customize it? In this category there are 3 factors to look for:
    • Theme Customization Options
    • Page Builder Support
    • Pre-Built Websites which you can import and take a look at
    • Documentation available on Internet. Just google for “How to hide the tag line in OceanWP” and you will see
  • Page Speed. This is crucial; if you have a nice unique site which takes years to load people will run away. It’s difficult to compare themes by speed but you can look for:
    • Size fingerprint – how big the default wordpress page is
    • Used JS libraries – for example if a theme uses jQuery then it’s a no go, because jQuery will increase your site loading time and rendering slow.
    • Operations and queries behind the hood. Practically impossible to know, but if you test the page speed of the demo theme site, you will get feedback.
  • Price. In the end quality pays, but cost is important. A low recurring price plan will make you pay more on long term than one time payment. A free theme might not offer all you need compared to a premium one.

GeneratePress Theme

GeneratePress is one of the most popular customizable wordpress themes like oceanwp. It’s lightweight, a default wordpress install with GeneratePress theme is less than 30k. Speed comes in close relation to the size: a light theme is more likely to be fast and GeneratePress is quite fast.

GeneratePress works very well with most of the page builders and it offers full control over the layout, including options to change padding, margins, sidebar layouts and practically all parameters!

The free version of GeneratePress is very versatile should be enough for anyone. However if you opt for the premium version you need to pay only $49.95 and you can use it for unlimited number of websites and you get full access to the site library, including access to all premium modules.
