Hello everyone! I'm curious to hear people's thoughts or experiences with Thrive themes and/or Genesis themes. Which one do people like better? Is one easier than the other to learn how to use available features?

Also, I have Elementor and am curious if people use Elementor with their themes or not?

Thanks,

Kent

I use Thrive and love them. I use all of their plugins as well as their themes. I've never used Genesis but it seems they are solid as well. I've used Divi extensively and love Divi as well, although Divi has a bigger learning curve...in my opinion.

Thanks for your insight. That seems to be the general consensus; Divi has a steeper learning curve. At this point, I'm leaning towards Thrive themes.

All my sites are using the Genesis Framework but I also use the plugin Thrive Architect as a content builder. I love Genesis but I refrain from using the Thrive Architect much as Grammarly will not run with it.

I have no experience with Thrive Themes but the Thrive Landing Pages that comes with the Thrive Architect are cool.

Any thoughts about Modern Themes?

I have not dived into them, but they look ok from their website. The free themes are mostly light versions of the pro ones and they seem to be well documented.

Both are really good.

Genesis framework is rock solid, although I have never used it.

Thrive themes are also good and the bundle of plugins and functionality for creating high conversion sites are also good.

I tried out Thrive just before Christmas, but ditched them because there were some limitations on accessing certain elements of the theme design without hard coding. But that's me nitpicking, for most it will work great. (And I also tested their refund policy which worked excellently).

I now use Divi, that lets me do everything Thrive does, it just isn't pre-puilt to do it, so I must design stuff myself.

Thanks for the information. I have heard of Divi too, I just wasn't sure if that would be the best option for me as someone who is just starting off. I think if Thrive has themes that are pre-built to have conversion-based features, that might work better for me.

Divi has a steep learning curve and I would not necessarily recommend it to an absolute beginner.
But if you can handle Thrive you can manage Divi too :)

I use thrive. Best thing ever. Totally worth it. But not necessary.
