Are You Using Generate Press Theme?

Last Update: April 11, 2020

Hello WA family,

I hope all is well with you, and if things are not well at this time, I hope they are getting better.

I watched one of Jay’s Live Training, and in reviewing some websites, he recommended using single column blog post (no side Bar).

Here is the is the link to the Training: https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/training/hot-seat-spring-202... if you would like to watch.

He mentioned that if the theme you are currently using does not have the option for single column, you could change it. I like the idea of having single column posts.

So, I have been doing some research. I saw a lot of instructions on making the change in WordPress, but none of them worked for my theme. I am using the “Cyclone” theme.

Jay also mentioned the GeneratePress Theme and said it has the option for single column.

Have you switched your theme to GeneratePress, can you please share your experience with using this theme?

Did it disurb anything on your website?

Did you have to do a lot of work to set it up?

Thanks for taking the time to read my Blog and thanks in advance for your response.

Continue to stay safe.

Blessings

Jackie

Hi Jackie,
I don't use Generate press theme.
I found a theme that works well with my dog site.

Jay reviewed it in the webinar you referred to.

I like the theme I'm using and I think it works well with my niche.

For my WA website, I use a theme called Zita. It looks more professional and again works well for my niche.

I also use side bar widget on both my sites.

You need to choose one that works with your niche and is easy to use. If Generate press works for you than why not use it?

Those are my thoughts.

Happy Easter, Jackie.

Thanks Barbara

Yes, I saw Jay reviewing you website, congratulations on being chosen.

Your website is beautiful. I agree that it is best to chose a theme that works well for my niche. Definitely, I would want a theme that is easy to use.

I want to try GeneratePress for the single column, but only if it will not cause any disruption to my website.

I will take a look at the Zita theme, to see how different it is from my current theme.

Thanks for your comment and the information you have provided.

Happy Easter to you too, continue to stay safe.

Blessings

Jackie,

First off, thank you for your compliments on my dog site. That was done in a theme called "dog lite".

Zita is not a column theme. You can add sidebar widgets to Zita.
I have them on my site.
Take a look and see if you like the theme.

Secondly, you're very welcome.
I'm glad I could be of some help.

All the best to you!

Hi Jacqueline, I did try GeneratePress for a while but in the end I switched to Neve.

When I switched to GeneratePress to try it out, it was straightforward and didn't really do any "damage" to what I already had on my site. Moving to single column on GeneratePress was straightforward for me but I guess it really depends on how much customisation you've done on your site.

Whilst GeneratePress works well, I find the free version a bit more limited than Neve's free version. I can't remember the exact details anymore but if I remembered correctly, I wanted more customisation options on the fonts I chose for my site.

As I am still building up my site, I didn't want to pay extra for a theme, and Neve gave me that option that I was looking for as well as single column site if I wanted to.

Hope that helps.

Thanks Steven

Glad to hear that you used GeneratePress, and it was straightforward.

As far as I know, I have not done a lot of customization to my website.

Thanks for the information about Neve. That is another one to check out along with Zita. I will be doing some comparison among the three.

Glad to hear that Neve have options with fonts. I am with you about not paying extra for a theme.

The information you provided definitely helps. Thanks again.

All the best with building up your site. May you exceed all your goals sooner than you expected.

Blessings

I switched mine toward the beginning of the year and absolutely love it.

The site looks clean and simple, plus there are a ton of features on it which makes it nice.

The only thing I had to fix was my feature images.

Also it was very easy to set up — basically like a plug-in.

Hope this helps. :)
