We’ve all been there. Scrolling through an endless sea of free WordPress themes and hoping for that one particular thumbnail to appear so we can build our website. But, unfortunately, the deeper you search, the deeper you find yourself in the repository. It can be tough to find a suitable free theme for WordPress on the best of days.
That is, until now! Then, finally, we found the unicorn of WP themes. It’s free, it’s beautiful, and it comes with a fantastic set of starter sites to help you set up your website in no time at all!
Introducing Blocksy – a Free Theme for WordPress.
Blocksy is a free WordPress theme made by the folks at Creative Themes. Blocksy is a lightning-fast, intuitive, and well-built theme that allows you to customize your website without worrying about coding. They even added in a Dark Mode for all you DM enthusiasts!
Customize Everything – Visually!
You might not have the time to code up your website or learn the skills you need to customize your WordPress website. The good news is that with Blocksy, you don’t need to know any code to get your website looking exactly how you want it to!
Blocksy supports all of your favorite website builders and is even Gutenberg-ready!
- Beaver Builder
There are many hyper-intuitive layouts, header, sidebar, and footer options for you to enjoy. Blocksy will allow you to customize your site in real-time, so it will instantly be visible on your screen. No more back and forth, shortcode edits for you.
An Impressive Header Builder to boot!
Have you ever come across a free theme for WordPress that has a built-in header builder? Nope? We thought so! Blocky delivers an out-of-the-box tool that enables you to build a boutique website header.
Simple drag and drop links, social icons, search bars, and triggers help you design a header that converts traffic and drives engagement.
The header builder comes with nine header elements (more coming soon), an advanced set of options for you to customize your design further, and a mobile editor that gives you the ability to create a unique menu for your mobile visitors.
A Blazing Fast Free Theme for WordPress!
How many times have you installed a free WordPress theme only to find that it is clunky, slow, and it takes forever to load? The team at Creative Themes wanted to make sure that Blocksy does not fall into this category. As a result, their theme is lighter and faster than most similar WordPress themes.
- GTmetrix PageSpeed Score: 100%
- Pingdom performance grade: 92%
- GTmetrix YSlow Score: 88%
- Google PageSpeed: 95%
As you can see from the above performance benchmarks, Blocksy is a fantastic lightweight theme to build on. As a result, you won’t have to worry about bogging your site down when it comes time to add your content and customizations.
Want to Make Some Paper?
If you’re looking for a free theme for WordPress that comes ready with WooCommerce, then look no further! Right out of the gates, Blocksy supports WooCommerce and allows you to start selling your excellent products in no time!
Seriously, when we put this theme to the test, we set up a demo WooCommerce store in a matter of minutes. It was that simple.
In addition to the standard WooCommerce integration, you also have the luxury of using some custom features that only Blocksy offers! These include:
- Product Quick Views – Show your customers a quick view of your product in an elegant pop-up window.
- Ajax Add to Cart – Instantly add your customer’s selection to their cart without making them wait. This may not seem like much, but think of how much frustration your customers will save by not having to edit their carts with duplicate entries constantly?
- Product Galleries – Two beautiful product galleries for you to choose from – time to get selling!
Get a Head Start with Starter Sites
I love starter sites. They make your life so much easier by giving you a head start on your WordPress build. If the concept of a Starter Site is new to you, don’t worry.
A starter site is a WordPress website that has been pre-built by a theme author. This website comes with demo content that you can replace with your own. By far, the best feature of a starter site is the fact that you don’t have to start your project from scratch. While this is an excellent idea if you have lots of time to spare, a starter site will simply give you a leg up and get your site published way more quickly.
Starter sites can be installed onto your WordPress site with a one-click import, and in all honesty, they are some of the best-looking free themes for WordPress we have ever seen.
Do You Want to Level Up Your Store Even More?
