Best of WordPress Themes Are Those that Need NO Page Builder
The best of WordPress themes are those that need NO page builder, AND... a theme that allows a webmaster to customize a website for different uses. This post is my shout out, as I FINALLY found a developer that offers such themes!
Having had to suffer through soooo many awesome looking themes only to discover they were created with a page builder, I truly have wondered where all the great WordPress theme developers went to.
Then I recently stumbled upon a great WordPress theme... LZ Cleaning Services.
Not only is this theme awesome in overall appearance, but the premium version of this theme allows you so many customizable features that you would not recognize this theme which is being used on my latest client’s website... and they are NOT a cleaning services either, in case you are wondering; In fact, far from it.
My client and his staff are “over the moon” about their new website... and personally, so am I.
The Luzuk Theme support staff are among THE BEST in the world to work with in bringing my vision of this new website to fruition.
As for theme support, you will need to be aware that the theme’s support team are on Greenwich Mean Time, and they do not work weekends. I can understand that 100%!
So, if you are like me and you reside in North America (I’m a Canadian in EST/EDT) you may need to wait 12 or more hours for a response during weekdays. But your reply will have resolved your issue... providing you make sure to give them proper descriptions (screen prints help immensely) about ANY problem(s) you may be having with their theme.
Or any of their other themes for that matter, as I have since learned that they offer a wide range of themes: https://wordpress.org/themes/author/luzuk/and NONE of these need a page builder.
Knowing how many members here at WA are frequently asking for theme suggestions, I thought well, outside of paying a monthly subscription fee to Thrive Themes in order to choose from one of theirs, the Luzuk Themes should definitely be seriously considered.
However, the Luzuk Themes I used needs a Twitter card (for sharing your posts on social media) and possibly a Lazy Load plugin too. So, these will require using plugins, obviously. But then, who knows... perhaps Luzuk Themes will include these features too in later versions of their themes.
The attention grabbing Twitter card option works in ALL social media, and in “my book” this option is a must-have for any website. For an example what a URL from a website with a Twitter card installed looks like once published in a tweet, see screen print above.
The Lazy Load option is for loading a website’s content as it is needed rather than all at once, such as when a visitor starts to scroll a web page. And, this helps to speed up the loading time of a website.
NOTE: Perhaps some of you ARE a fan of page builders, but I am not, as I have found them to be resource hogs and they can make trouble shooting even more difficult. So, please do not yell at me in the comments for saying how I feel about page builders. They truly are resource hogs, as anyone on an IT team that looks after web servers can tell you.
