GeneratePress Theme Review – A Flexible WordPress Theme That Works With All Page Builders

GeneratePress Theme Review – A Flexible WordPress Theme That Works With All Page Builders

In this video I’m going to do a review and
walk-through of one of the best WordPress themes that are available today and is called
GeneratePress hi my name is Adam from were I make WordPress videos for non-techies
like me and if you enjoy the content in this video I upload them daily so you wouldn’t
mind considering clicking on that subscribe button down below and become a subscriber
here if you want video notifications there’s a little bell off to the right of the subscribe
button that you can click on and you too will let you know when I upload a new video so
this video is going to be all about this theme right here called GeneratePress now GeneratePress
is a free theme let’s just put that out there but this review I mean obviously everything
I say that’s complementary goes towards a theme but this is really good to be about
the premium package that they offer and it’s a suite of add-ons that you can activate that
extend the functionality of GeneratePress now if you followed along my video series
about how to create an online course website this is the design we ended up with and for
the theme I use GeneratePress and part of that was it’s not a requirement to get the
premium package and there are different things that would be probably a lot easier if you
did have the premium add on package so for example changing out fonts changing out colors
and these are some of the primary things that your theme does is set your colors and set
your fonts and create your headers and crater footers and everything else I did sandwiched
in between on here was with Elementor I will video series on this link down below and I
include all the video temp not video template the page templates are all included okay so
this is what GeneratePress looks like by default when you install the theme on a vanilla WordPress
website and it’s good at a lot of features that were in essentially have full control
over everything and I do have a special treat even though it’s not officially released I
do have the development version of the GeneratePress premium package that includes the WooCommerce
integration and were a look at that as well in this video but if you head over to GeneratePress’s
website now I will have a link down below in the pin comment section and also the video
description box down below takes you over there that is an affiliate link up Tom the
developer GeneratePress will give me a cup of coffee if you did purchase this premium
package now first off I want to tell you you don’t need the premium package what it does
is it makes things here for you and actually now does actually do some things that would
be hard to pull off on your own but that’s the trade-off with a lot of things that you’re
in a purchase for WordPress it’s I can spend a little bit of money and save a ton of time
or I can spend a ton of time to save a little bit of money so GeneratePress is 40 bucks
right now let me click on premium right here I believe it’s only 40 box where is that price
Tom there it is 40 bucks and it comes with its essentially a plug-in that you would add
to your website and you would just enable what you wanted the features that you want
let me just give you quick overview here of some of those so for example your to be able
to control pretty much all the colors of your website your topography this sections I encouraged
actually let me back this up a little bit the reason why dinner Ray Perez is so stinking
awesome is the developer his name is Tom you can connect with him in the GeneratePress
Facebook group there’s also support form here he is the hardest working developer in WordPress
that I’ve ever come across he provides the most fantastic support and honestly if you
would ask 10 to 10 people why you purchased GeneratePress I’m sure nine of them would
say because of Tom because you have direct connection to the guy because he’s on top
of supporting it implementing things that people want but he’s very disciplined with
that he won’t implement something that would bog down or slow down his theme because his
theme is so it’s like a well oiled machine I tell you this thing is coded very very well
so anyways back to this stuff. So sections I was telling Tommy should drop that because
essentially it’s kind like a page builder kind of but is not as vigilant visual and
nowadays you would just use a page builder with GeneratePress you can use Elementor which
is free you can use Beaver Builder and also GeneratePress perfectly integrates with the
the new Beaver Themer package that was recently released okay and so there’s also some additional
options here with the menu system and this is very powerful the page header one that’s
actually really nice feature as well I’m in have to show you that you have very good options
with the blog index page and how your blog posts will be laid out backgrounds I usually
just use a solid color I never use an image for the background spacing is actually very
important and I like the flexibility that that’s can add to cover this all like in in
an actual website secondary nap don’t use that copyright he actually makes it very easy
to change the clock rate even if you don’t purchase this I really like that about him
disable elements is super useful you can disable elements on a post or a page basis on an individual
basis it makes it very easy hooks is actually very powerful as well although I would like
him Tom taken out I would like some improvements in the hooks area to make it little more easy
to throw in saved rose or sections from Elementor or Beaver Builder anyways what this doesn’t
include is the brand-new not even on the website yet WooCommerce integration and he took all
of the feedback from all of the people that have GeneratePress premium now and he implemented
it on this beautiful WooCommerce integration them and to be able to show you as well in
this video now if you wanted to see any of these features in action you can come here
there’s a video overview for each one and you can also click on the details, in move
through each of these pretty quick myself as you can see what they do but you can also
come here to get more information one of things that is really nice about GeneratePress is
there’s a great support community here you can click on the support forms and I got to
say I give GeneratePress and A+ on the documentation side if you haven’t notice a lot of times
themes and plug-ins for WordPress their biggest weaknesses is the documentation there just
isn’t good documentation or it’s not complete they might tell you how to do something but
the instructions don’t make sense not so with Tom he has invested so much effort and energy
time and money into having the best documentation that I have probably ever seen for WordPress
are probably right up there with Beaver Builder because they have put a big investment into
their documentation as well Tom is amazing in the support department so for example he
has the support forms here and he is so quick to respond there’s also a Facebook group he
is so quick to respond and he is very approachable he’s a great guy Nina did not get sidetracked
I like to spend my money with the local guy I so I feel Tom is I mean it’s a rocksolid
business it’s very well-established this isn’t wet behind the ears type of theme but I I
really like it that I know when I’m buying it it’s going to a guy like me the money is
going to a guy like me it’s not going to a big corporation are big business or whatever
I’m up and the guy that has a kid at home and his hustle and working hard has provided
something rocksolid’s going to be there for me when I need him and that’s one of the selling
points of GeneratePress for me not that it’s God you know so many download so many customers
of so many people using it were talking tens of thousands of people websites using his
amazing theme but I like to know that I’m given the money to a guy that’s going to be
there for me that he’s gonna listen to me and you know anyways I don’t need to beat
a dead horse on that issue so anyways this right here is our default GeneratePress now
let me go into the back and here so what can happen is your canoe when you purchase the
GeneratePress add-ons is going to be a plug-in right here called GP premium to go ahead and
activate it right now so there it is it’s activated and then what you want to do is
you want to go to appearance and then GeneratePress now just keep in mind I’m using a beta version
of it because this is the first anyone seeing of the newly added WooCommerce integration
so once you add it here you popping your license key of course and then here are all those
modules that I was talking to you about so you can either activate them all or just activate
what you want in that’s what I really like about it from a performance standpoint because
one of the most important responsibilities of a theme is for to be well coded and for
it to also beat fast and on that well coded note this is just a random side note with
Thompson being GeneratePress he has spent a significant amount of money to have one
of the most well-known WordPress developers do a very tight security audit not just how
much he prides himself on this theme most theme developers would never do that because
quite frankly they don’t make any money on their theme or maybe it’s not a high priority
but for Tom it is a very high priority to provide the most tight security possible and
he’s gone ahead and put the money in for a in-depth security audit and it’s of course
secure but he is going through the audit anyways anyway so here we go actually I sorry that’s
why you want to be careful the theme you choose to use because that is where there are security
holes introduced into your website so you might see a theme that looks really exciting
and it’s all sexy on the front end and all that but you don’t know when you look at the
code if there’s going to be performance issues but more importantly security issues and that’s
why it’s smart to go with a reputable team for your website and that’s what were getting
here in GeneratePress so you can just click on the checkbox and then for bulk actions
go ahead and activate everything, to uncheck that sections because I don’t use it but everything
else is cool now if you are watching this today the day that I upload the video you
and I can have this WooCommerce option because it’s can be coming out in a few days so I’m
just gonna activate what I have there and here we go so also right here the only time
you can come back to this pages if you want to disable a new add-on or new add-on comes
out you want to enable it but you should also come here for the import export options so
essentially every aspect of your GeneratePress site is modular you can move it around which
is very nice I know a lot of people that are making child themes are using GeneratePress
because it’s so easy to give you settings to install in order to get the site looking
the way that you want it now we have a new option here which is GP hook some knock and
talk about that right now where their real meat and potatoes is going to be is right
here where it says customize someone to go ahead and click on customize and your to see
all of the setting so let me just preface pretty much anything that you could want to
change colors fonts header layouts footer layouts are to be able to do it now with this
premium add on a package so the first thing is your to come here to the layout and its
setting after setting each element the layout for those elements in this right here is new
the WooCommerce so we can change our container with this actually very good because the theme
I’m using right now I can’t make it wider or more narrow I wanted wider actually us
you can come in here and change your container with and here’s already some spacing and padding
that you can start changing around oh I like this this is new you can lock them together
and start decreasing them right that’s pretty good that this is the spacing from inside
the box right here the content padding the padding to the top left bottom and right and
then here it is for a mobile device so there’s our container we do have a lot of header options
here which is really knifes we got alignment options we’ve got the width we can adjust
and what’s really nice is he’s also including options for your mobile header and I really
like that because a lot of themes when you look at on a mobile device I I just don’t
like the way the header portion looks it either takes up too much space or just just doesn’t
look really that good so here is our primary navigation right here we can choose the let’s
see where is it okay this is nice right here where the navigation is good to be so by default
with GeneratePress it’s on the bottom but here more typical place to have it would be
maybe on the float right and it would move it right there member we can change these
colors I don’t I don’t like these default colors at all actually so we have that right
there in theirs like I said all of these options right here what else is were over the note
I can add a secondary navigation if I wanted to we can have a top bar we can have a second
dairy one here on the bottom we have sticky navigation options which some themes they
charge you extra just to have this sticky navigation anyways I can have slide out navigation
actually this is kind of new and see the slide out navigation is usually there’s like a like
a hamburger icon here and you click on it and it slides out so I don’t actually see
that so I’m not probably doing it right but that’s okay alright so we have a page header
options anyways you can see we have all of these awesome layout options but let’s take
a look at WooCommerce so right here it’s really nice you can display the cart finally in the
menu this was one of the things I asked for this is when someone adds a product to the
cart it’s gonna show the cart on the menu area there I think that’s pretty huge we have
breadcrumbs right there here is our product page layout actually let me jump into that
someone click on shop and I did throw in a default product here called the fidget cube
to start an e-commerce store with my son selling some of these fidgety things alright so you
can see now we have options for the layout here for WooCommerce product page so right
now it is actually let’s see that that sidebar layout let’s see if it affects it I’m this
might just be the shop page let’s see content no sidebar that might not do it all right
will do it okay so there you go so if you didn’t want to show sidebar you can do tears
and I have these options were you didn’t have these options before you have image alignment
and how many products per page on the shop page in the have these controls of what you
want to show and what you don’t want to show in if you notice here it is actually really
deep the options that it gives you I really like that okay so it’s get out of layout in
the morning to the same thing for colors and now everything segmented out in the colors
so I said I don’t like that of the black background here that is my primary navigation colors
so I can change the background to let’s just clear it out and then I need to actually give
the font to color in their ego so this is kind of what you would expect to see a background
that’s the same color background as the rest of the header and then a contrasting color
for the font so there we have it was that easy let me also change my text however it’s
go white their ego right in here to I should have made white okay there you go that’s what
I wanted to do and said let’s see so we still have that hover we connect to get rid of that
on the hover as well is right here it’s the background hovers so we would just make that
whites and now we just have the text changing and so the text however we will make that
dark as well there we go so you see how easy that is the change that would be a big pain
in the rear end if you’re doing it with custom code even though he will tell you exactly
how to do that that’s one of things I like about Tom even though he’s wants to have you
buy the premium package so he can eat he’ll tell you how to do something without you buying
it which is a very refreshing that he’s willing to help you even if there’s nothing really
financial in it for him and you can control all of these colors right here one of the
things that is actually very unique is he has the option here for forms so whenever
you go to like a contact form it inherits the style from your theme but in this premium
package he gives you the option to cheat to configure what those will be when you see
a form on your page so if I click on add to cart right here let’s see if that’s gonna
work in the customizer it doesn’t look like it’s going to work in the customizer I show
you actually get them to show you right now I’m to go here to go to shop to go to fidget
cube added to the carts in the number to view all these colors can be completely customizable
minima to go to the checkout every color so here’s like your typical form Juergen to be
able to control the sizes and colors you know how the color changes when you when you click
into the field you actually get those options right here in the customizer this is unique
I haven’t really seen this anywhere anyways so now are in our WooCommerce colors and Juergen
be thrilled to know you have pretty much control over all the colors so I mean we obviously
we’ve got this button here if I wanted to make it something vibrant like that and then
I change my holler hover color to that you can see how easy that was to change and they
go you got literally it and it actually goes deeper in colors customizations of these colors
than I’ve seen in other themes so this is really going to set generate pad press ahead
of the pack when it comes to WooCommerce and e-commerce integration and I really like this
you see there’s another thing called Genesis now Genesis is so linking any change you want
to make you have to do it with custom code and argument there is that because of that
it’s gonna run faster but it it’s not necessarily as so accurate today because GeneratePress
I bet if you put it side-by-side isn’t gonna run any slower than a Genesis theme but you
still get these customizer options which I want even though I can sit there and crank
out CSS I don’t want to do that I rather just come in here click around change of color
and be off to what and what the next thing I want to do that day so anyways there is
your WooCommerce colors right there same thing for topography were to be able to change the
fonts of everything in the weight and all that stuff I didn’t like my primary navigation
font right there I can go here and just choose something different so let’s just use this
comic sans I think that will be noticeable just like that and I can inclusively decrease
the size there to 18 you see how easy it is and then I can make it all I will not capitalize
all uppercase like this you can see how easy that is actually that made it too big let
me come back down okay scenario so it work and control over all the fonts that you would
need in your website RK so we have the blog options here and this could be how the blog
content is laid out you got the Manson re-options I like your traditional one where you’ve got
the title the image an excerpt and some can click on and go in but to each his own by
default just you know this is kind of this layout you see how everything is kind of in
its own little separate container and then we have this color here on the edges some
people like that some people don’t let me actually show you how to change that real
quick so that would be your background color I’m pretty sure so are the body right here
so let me change that to white and there you go that was much all you needed to do to change
that or if you wanted to be a different color altogether you could go there I mean that’s
how simple this really was to now it doesn’t look all containerized but is completely up
to you how you wanted and what you want to do there so that is our colors that was our
topography or blog background images you can actually put a background instead of just
the color you can have an image in the background I don’t typically like that but I mean for
some creative types you might want to put a pattern in the background and I totally
understand that okay here’s the option for your copyright you can pop in whatever you
want if you scroll down by default this is what it’s gonna say but you can put in whatever
you want their menus that’s a typical WordPress widget additional CSS this is all WordPress
stuff right here so you can see how it’s all kind of a logically organized if it’s a layout
it’s can be found under layout of its color it’s gonna be under colors and if it’s the
font to the topography you’re gonna find that in topography so if I didn’t like the layout
of this footer ding ding ding I noted going to the customizer click on layout oops not
site identity click on layout and go to footer and now I’ve got control over my footer area
if I didn’t want three footer widgets I can just go like this and kinda get rid of the
the footer altogether if I didn’t want to do that there is color so here is this like
copyright areas got that black if I don’t want that there I go home that’s probably
in colors so let me go to colors and let’s find that so that would probably be under
my guess is maybe footer widget no footer that would be footer the area where the witches
were would be the footer widgets this is just gonna be the footer so there you go now I
can go here and I can lighten up the color and make it to be whatever I want he does
have it all organized and grouped in a logical way if it’s a layout it’s going to be in layouts
if it is a color color topography topography it’s as simple as that so for instance if
I wanted to change some of the header exit let’s take a look at this a secondary navigation
right here so let’s see navigation location above header below header is where you can
place a second navigation here’s the different locations that you can place it on if I did
like no navigation actually I’m missing this right here above header I wonder if I have
to assign a menu and that’s wire where I would get it up there on the top but you also have
in each of these layout options is the padding and spacing options which is really nice so
let’s change us around so for navigation right now it’s on the flow right I’m going to put
it up below the header but instead of on the left I’m going to center it so now that’s
centered and so this is the header right here I’m in a go ahead and put that in the center
and now everything’s just kind of centered actually like this kind of a layout it looks
a little more friendly and easier to navigate and I’m sure looks great on all devices and
here’s your padding and everything like that so let’s do a quick save and publish and take
a look at it on the front and someone ago here and there it is him a click on shop you
can see how I’ve already changed a whole bunch of things when doing add to cart and let’s
see where we not get in our add to cart in there let me figure that out like me because
it and added to cart okay there go view cart okay so I’m on the card I have three of them
in the cart and were not getting it showing there’s let’s just see what we need to do
to make that work colors let’s see someone to go back to colors WooCommerce and let’s
see if that’s how I need to enable it darn and I can’t find it off the top of my head
while you’re just going to have to trust me that it works I had a working the other day
I reset all my settings and instead of making this video any longer than it needs to be,
to go ahead and just click on save and publish and try to explain the hook areas which is
a very powerful feature so well it just took me right to the hooks that’s right because
I was on Hunt’s when I got into the customizer so what hooks are is these different areas
and locations on a page so there’s above header below header above navigation below navigation
above post content below post content there’s these hook areas and what you can do is you
can drop a short code in here and it will take whatever that chart could generate source
and PHP that going a little on the technical side or just a short code and it will put
it in that location and this is actually really good if you’re using one of these modern page
builders like Elementor or Beaver Builder because you can create a rower section and
you can save it and then you’ll get a little short code that you can play someplace so
where you’d want to use this type of feature is say you have a lot of blog posts and you
want to maybe have a call to action about the content but below the navigation on a
blog post asking for someone’s email address that’s how you could do something like that
or maybe you wanted a sitewide notice you know when you go to a website and they might
be having a sale or there some something that they want to help help you to to notice and
recognize in the have a bar at the very top these are things you can do in these hook
areas so you would be able to create it in your page builder of choice though give you
little short code and you can just paste it wherever you want to pop that information
in and that is one of the really nice things that you can do here and there’s all these
different hook locations right here I don’t see a real easy way to see what is aware but
there might be in the documentation a list of what these hook areas are and where they
are so you would know when you place your circle and it is easy if you put it someplace
is wrong wrong spot you just move it to the perfect spot and be very easy to get dialed
in so anyways guys that is been my quick review of GeneratePress I fully will leave fully
stand behind a GeneratePress I love what Tom is doing you will be in good hands in using
this theme and as a matter of fact you would not be alone if you started using GeneratePress
a lot if developers are using this theme and basing all of their website builds on this
theme and I think the reason why I like getting a theme from a different company that I get
my page builder from is because Batesville the company they can focus on improving the
page builder the theme company they can focus on making it the best theme that there is
and they can have these as separate focuses I find that if your using that company for
the page builder and the theme they might have a split focus or split passion Tom passionate
about GeneratePress this theme and these different page builder plug-ins like Elementor Beaver
Builder they’re just passionate about that but if they’re also selling a theme I find
that the passion is in there for the theme and that’s why it’s good to go with Tom a
separate company for your theme it’s kind like when you go to that restaurant that has
a menu with all kinds of different items on it and they’re all just okay they’re not fantastic
but if you go to a restaurant that just serves this in a restaurant that just serves that
there’s a good chance that it’s going to be better for you better for you but it’s good
to be a better better meal because that’s what they focus on that is there thing that
is what they do that is what they’re the best that that’s what they’re the experts at that’s
all that I was trying to make with that points up anyways like I said I’ve got a link down
below to GeneratePress now if you use GeneratePress and you like it wanted to put your reasons
down below in the comment section or if there’s a another WordPress theme that you use in
and you use it for a particular reason and I wanted to share that with everyone down
below as well thanks for watching this video

About the author


  1. We have GeneratePress Premium and Elementor Pro. Based on your observations, are the GP Hooks about the only place to make use of Elementor Pro? I guess the other use would be if any Elementor Pro widgets could be integrated. Bottom line, we are having a hard time understanding the value of having both Elementor Pro and GP Premium since they seem to be standalone products. And now Genesis developer has just released GP Extender. Yet another integration option.

  2. I tried padding but it doesn't reduce the whitespace in Menubar. Though GP website it has the right hight. But don't know how they did it. Maybe css?

  3. Hi Adam. Me again :-). Thanks for the great video. I took your earlier advice about picking a theme and a page builder and mastering that set first. Thanks to you your videos, I now only work with GeneratePress and Elementor. After watching this tut, I have a much better handle on all the things I've been missing out on in GP. I'll probably build my next site in GP alone just to master it. That said, I'm still a little fuzzy on how to build a popup call to action in Elementor and then use GP hooks to make it "popup" where I need it. I'm currently building a site for a wine tasting company. I'm using the GP theme and the front page is built on the Elementor canvas. I need a popup call to action to get people to sign up when they start scrolling on the front page. There are plugins that do that but I really want to do in in GP and Elementor – if that is possible. Any suggestions you have are welcome. BTW, while I was poking around today in the GP knowledge base I ran across a question from another user about how to setup the GP back end. I responded and gave him/her the link to and stated that your site is the best place to really learn this stuff. Thanks again for the great videos.

  4. Hello Adam, I started using GeneratePress on your recommendation and later I bought GP Premium as well. I use this theme exclusively now because it is so easy to customize. Now that I see that it includes WooCommerce, I am even more of a fan. WooCommerce, I think, is inherently difficult to manipulate and I am looking forward to giving the GP Premium update a try. Thank you and Tom for all of your help.

  5. by the way at 21:16 another way to change the layout so that the sidebar/content is not all separated you can just go to layout >>>> container >>> and choose "one container" instead of "separate containers" for the content layout.

  6. Hi, Adam. Quick question. Which of these combos make more sense?

    GP + Elementro Pro
    GP Premium + Elementor
    GP Premium + Elementor Pro

    What do you think?

  7. Another great video Adam 🙂

    You are 110% correct that Tom is a great fellow! It was a pleasure to be able to have a coffee with him a while back.

    One point: although you can make the page look "all the same" by adjusting the background color as you did, the better method is to use the Layout area to do so. Layout > Container > Content Layout = One Container. Reason being, this changes the relevant CSS selectors to their appropriate values 🙂

    Here is the link to the GP Hooks locations:


  8. Just some feedback that may not have been mentioned – GP has 5 Child themes that are in the WP Theme repository – they have varying styling & layouts that are a good starting place for a new site – and they look a whole like nicer than the default theme (improving that black menu row that Adam mentioned 🙂 ) Appearance >> Themes >> Add New & enter generatepress into the search form. Also worth mentioning is that Tom has a very nice CSS tool called Simple CSS that I install on all my clients sites…

  9. Hey, FYI — I purchased based solely on your suggestion and examples above. Excellent Theme. Just wanted Tom to know this.

  10. Hi, I am working with generatepress and I would like to know how I can replicate the menu of this page: so that the logo stands out from the menu both above and below

  11. Anyone know of a good rundown of the differences, and pros and cons of GP vs BB Theme? Or anyone have any opinions? Thanks!

  12. Hi Adam, I've subscribed to your channel and liked your video. I had already decided to purchase GeneratePress Premium and I was looking for reviews and found this video of yours. Now I've decided to purchase through your link because I like how detailed you were with your review in your video. Thanks.

  13. Hi there,
    I really enjoy your videos. I was curious how you are able to have you in the circle while controlling the main screen. Is there a specific software you use or is there a trick to make it happen ? Keep up with the great job.

  14. Hello Adam,
    I am learning a lot with your videos and your site – thank you so much! I am pretty new at all of this.
    I have a question and if you have time for a reply, I would appreciate it very much! (I have tried to research it myself, but find conflicting info and it is just confusing.)
    I have a new site that I am just getting started on. I currently have Genesis and Minimum Pro. So far I don't like working with Minimum Pro (although it is probably because I am just learning!) and I really don't like the way the backstretch image works.
    Question is: should I scrap Genesis and Min Pro and get GeneratePress and Elementor?? Is this combo good for a very beginner (not a developer!)? 🙂
    I just want to start off correctly and with a good foundation.
    Thank you for any info you can offer!

  15. hi there thank you bunches for all you do. you have great videos. I just started with GeneratePress Tom the developer is very accessible as you said. I am impressed with that. The themes so far is good. I am on my learning curve here. I would recommend it … it is simple and flexible. non techi here. and my developer friend recommended it. 🙂 blessings all.

  16. Adam, wanted to thank you for your awesome efforts with WPCrafter as you have helped me in so many ways. I now have a business partner and we are launching our first eCommerce site in about a month. I'm using GeneratePress, Elementor and WooCommerce. Seriously without your in depth reviews and tutorials I would be no where as far along and not as happy with the finished site. Keep up the great work!

  17. Tom is such an awesome guy. I see a post one time asking Tom how to do a premium feature manually,and he literally gave the guy the code of what to change in the CSS and other links that can help. LOL

  18. Would Elementor Pro be limited if used with GeneratePress Free? thank you for all your online videos, they help tremendously.

  19. Hello Adam, great video always. I've bought the pro, but as u know, there are tons of wordpress reviewers on youtube. So pls, between GP and ocean wp, which is better for ecommerce site. It's my first time building a website and i just want to have a fixed mind and don't turn back. Thanks

  20. Good Morning. This theme seems to be what I've been looking for. I have been trying to build a store using storefront with the power pack customizer. It is so bare bones and to me, it is not newbie friendly nor fun to work with. Anyway, I like what I see here and since my store is still very empty, I want to make a change to GP. I value your tutorials and opinions. Thank You.

  21. Excellent – I started trying to use WP last year having previously only ever built simple websites using WYSIWYG software. I was on the point of giving up as impossible (for me) when I came across Generate Press and was then able to build a decent WP blog site. Tom helped me out with some very quick and helpful advice – he is, as you say, definitely one of the good guys.

  22. I made the change to GPP and I am having a ball with it already. Newbies like myself need a theme like this; user friendly and fun to work with. Thanks again.

  23. Hi Adam! I followed your lead and purchased the premium add-on package but I ran into a weird issue; I'd love some help. In short, the landing page of my site is not allowing the Page Builder (Beaver) to enter in. I can only access any editing of the page by means of the customizer. Somehow Beaver is blocked when previewing the page in WP. Why can't I change anything? Even from the customizer the page is so alien to change; it just remains untouchable.

  24. Adam, this is a great review for GeneratePress.

    I saw your review for Astra theme and I'm curious why you chose that theme rather than GeneratePress.

  25. Hi Adam, another great video. I'm considering making the switch from Thrive themes to GeneratePress or Genesis. Do you know how well does Generate Press works with Thrive architect and the suite of thrive plugins in general?

  26. Would you be able to make a video on how is it possible to use Beaver Builder with Generate Press? I just got the theme and tested on a new site and maybe the compatibility is no longer there?

  27. Hi, for now, I am just only using the basic generate press, but I cannot find where to manage the social icon is … was that in pro version only? thank you …

  28. HI Adam
    wonderful job as usual. I am using GP and free Elemntore. Question: GP comes with its own native tools and some of this tools also in Elementor and the other recommended Plugin for elemntore.
    Do you think that native GP Functionality and customization has priority to use than if i need more i go to Elemntore?
    would be better to just stick to elemntore primary and than the GP Tools and customization second? there is any conflict?

  29. Great video! 😀 I decided to use the GeneratePress theme for my new blog. And i just love it! It's so flexible! In the past I used many different themes, but i often had many different problems. Keep up the good work! 👍👍

  30. Which combination is best to get started 1) free generate press + free elementor
    2) Free generatePress + Pro elementor
    3) Pro GeneratePress + free elementor
    4) Pro generatePress + Pro elementor
    ??? I thought elementor was supposed to be the wysiwyg "customizer"

  31. Dude, you are the man. I had purchased the copyright section of the premium package as a single plugin. Generate Press upgraded my purchase and gave me the Premium package free because they no longer supported individual sectional purchases. Thanks to your training, I feel like I am on top of the world with your in-depth training on how to use each section.

  32. Hey Adam, thanks for this great video! Its been about a year since you did this one. Do you still recommend GeneratePress and do you still rate it as passionately as you did here? I'm thinking I will be using ThriveArchitect as a page builder and am looking for a good theme for the membership site I'm creating. Thanks again.

  33. Adam, on an unrelated note, what did you do to create your custom video intro? I've taken a stab at it with Blender a few times but it makes me want to rip my hair out. I got something created that's pretty nifty with Panzoid, but it's not custom, because it's Panzoid.. much like the Blender templates use.. not really custom, unless you do it all from scratch..

    Really my question comes down to this: did you just pay somebody to make it through Fiverr or similar website, or do you know of tools that allow a person to create such a thing without learning full blown animation over the course of several weeks?

    Same question for the audio.

  34. Hi Adam,
    Firstly thanks for all your great resource video's, I'm happily working my way through them!
    On implementing your guidance on increasing php for site speed, I have found issues withe the themco X theme I am using. I am considering changing theme to something more lightweight as additionally the page builder 'cornerstone' the theme uses is quite a drain on loading (as seen when I ran P3 – Plugin Performance Profiler). I'd be interested to hear your thoughts on changing themes and as a consequence, the page builder also,

  35. Hi,

    Can I ask if Generate Press works well with Hootsuite and Hubspot integration? Also, is there a way to make Blogging SEO friendly?


  36. I came over to GP after my nightmare experience with DIVI. GP Premium is a steal at $39.95 and unlimited websites. I don't know why anyone would use Divi, Elegant Themes, Theme Forest or even StudioPress. You have the developer who is accessible and actively involved personally with the theme that you bought. No middle man, customer service issues, etc. Very happy with my purchase!

  37. Adam, please add your GeneratePress Premium link to the video description. Thanks for your reviews and training!

  38. I've been working on my website using the free Generate Press theme. My question is, if I purchase the pro version and install it, will it mess up what I've already done?

  39. Hi Adam…I bought this theme last year and now they have sent me a “renewal”. Does this mean my key will stop working if I don’t pay or is the payment simply for the support? Just wondering if this will be an annual fee in order to keep the theme up to date.

  40. Thanks for the review. I like that your video doesn't have that much ads. Some people put ads in the middle of their videos, how annoying. Ermm. Between GeneratePress and Genesis theme, which one is better in terms of SEO and speed. The display seems to have similarity to Genesis the basic version. 🤔

  41. Great review. Your review has only reinforced how impressed I am with GP. I think I’ll be using it on my next build. The only thing that concerns me as a BB user is how up-to-date will this theme be with the 2.2 version of BB?

  42. Can't say enough good things about GeneratePress – and this channel!


    Super-fast load time.

    Clean code.

    Incredibly easy interface.

    Built according to the best visual- design principles.

    Affordable – a SUPER value!

    This channel:


    Covers the key info a tech DIYer needs, thoroughly and clearly.

    Recognizes and addresses "make-or-break" issues that can slow down or even stop your project process – if you're naive about them.

    Engaging and motivating.

    More, but those are the biggies!

  43. Great video thanks Adam. I have a question. I was thinking about using Thrive Architect for my blog since it looks beautiful but I also know that I might be compromising on the load speed is I did, which is a concern of course. I do own GeneratePress and I love it do you think I should just stick with GP for speed? I know GP is is a theme and Thrive is a page builder but I saw some videos by Thrive showing some really neat features for blog posts.

  44. Hi, what page builder are you using here? I already have cornerstone and Xtheme, but I'm really not enjoying it. Could I use GP Premium and Cornerstone? I'm new to all of this so I hope this isn't a silly question!

  45. Hi, thank you for this great video. Last year I purchased the Thrive membership but I feel it's a little too complicated for me. I'm wondering if I purchase this Generate Press theme, can I use Elementor with it? I want to be able to make Landing Pages. Thank you and I hope to hear from you soon.

  46. Tom & the guys in GP are real developers and they love what their doing . Whatever you need they give it to you in the support forum even custom code ! Is insane

  47. Started to work with generatepress only a couple of weeks ago but I am in love with it already. Such a great theme! So versatile and easy to use. Combine it with Elementor and you're good to go. After a few days I decided to go for GP premium and so far – no regrets. When I needed some help, Tom replied and sorted my issue out super quickly.
    Recommended 6 out od 5 stars!

  48. Adam. GREAT video. Thank you. Love the food reference at the end too, about going to two different restaurants. Keep on cooking.

  49. I would wanna use this theme for my Amazon affiliate marketing links.. .and use the Thrive Architect along with it now that thrive killed their hot themes.

  50. I want to preface with the fact that your videos are amazing. You dive deep and explain things very well and I appreciate you taking the time to teach others what you know. Much appreciated.

    If I could recommend one thing, it would be to slow down a little. I feel like I’m being verbally machine gunned. There are no rightly timed pauses in what you’re explaining. There’s no emphasis or gaps between segments which makes it tough to listen to. It’s like you drank 2 liters of Jolt.

    Keep up the great content. I love you and your work, just take it easy! 😀
