There are some instances where a specialty WordPress theme may serve you best. But generally speaking a multipurpose theme can give you everything you ask of it and more. The top-rated ones, like the 7 described in this article, are noted for their flexibility and ease of use. In some cases, their extendibility as well. Performance is never an issue either.

It admittedly can take some searching to find a multipurpose theme that doesn’t place limitations of one kind or another on what you can do. Finding one that best suits your needs can take time. It also can involve a certain amount of testing or trial and error when there are more important things to be done.

It’s so much easier to set aside a few minutes to browse through the themes presented here. You can’t make a bad choice, but you might want to choose to spend a little extra time to find what’s best.

Happy shopping!

1. Hello Theme

Hello Theme

Although any WordPress theme can be used with Elementor’s open source website building tool, and since Elementor is both flexible and extendible, it’s not all that difficult to create an attractive, sales-generating website.

That’s admittedly good news, but if you really want a website worth bragging about, we suggest you pair Elementor with Hello. Hello is the fastest and lightest theme ever created since there’s no extraneous code to slow things down. It’s also a theme without boundaries, it’s SEO friendly, and there’s a special reason for selecting it for use with Elementor.

Every time a new version of Elementor is to be released, the bulk of the testing done on that version is done using Hello. As a result, Hello is always 100% compatible with Elementor. Better yet, Hello is completely compatible with every WordPress plugin. When you invest in Hello you don’t have to worry about inheriting limitations, constraints, or other baggage some themes carry with them.

2. Be Theme

We don’t necessarily look for the biggest theme out there when we’re looking for the best. In the world of WordPress themes size doesn’t always matter.
