It’s probably an amazing feeling to be the owners of Visual Composer. A WordPress page builder plugin with more than 285,000 premium sales. And 99% of all new premium WP themes are compatible with VComposer either directly or indirectly. That tells you a lot about the level of usefulness that Visual Composer is able to provide for bloggers. First and foremost, it has been dubbed as the “2nd most important invention after WordPress itself”, and there is some truth in that statement. WordPress started out as nothing else but a simple writing engine. You would write a blog post and hit publish. Only the nerdiest of nerds would know how to customize the design.
However, things have changed. The web has grown. Web design has become more accessible and has been simplified greatly. As a result, developers are able to create back-end tools that can help beginners to manage the front-end design intuitively using a simple dashboard. Visual Composer isn’t the only plugin of its type, and it certainly has competition. But VC is the founding father of all the successors that have come or are yet to come. As a result, you can trust that VC maintains the structure of simplicity and intuitive features.

BeTheme is an absolute monster of a WordPress theme. Clocking in at 65,000+ sales it could end up being the best purchase you have ever made. So, what is the one thing that makes the BeTheme so successful? Well, most of all, it has to be the 250+ free website demos you can launch within seconds. Typically, the way that you install a demo layout is by using an XML file. The difference with BeTheme is that it has its own intuitive demo loader interface. You can go through the pre-built layout directory, take your pick and within a click of a button have an active website using your chosen template. It’s quick in that regard, but it wouldn’t be without the hundreds of amazing layouts.
Let’s say you want to start a business website. There are countless business categories, aren’t there? The idea that one theme could suit ALL categories is unfeasible. However, BeTheme is capable of supporting restaurants, developers, foodies, mechanics, architects and many other businesses with ease. And it’s not just random elements put together either. In fact, every provided demo website has that distinct feel to it to the type of a website it is. If it’s a non-profit, then the content is organized for maximum business purpose exposure. If it’s a product website for something like tea or coffee, then the emphasis is on individual product display. Every new demo website you open feels unique. It feels like a different theme each theme.
And the best part is, it’s all integrated into one single framework. Which means that whatever you see on any of those demos, you can “borrow” to use in your unique design. The compatibility of third-party plugins includes WooCommere, WPML, Visual Composer, BuddyPress, and popular caching plugins. On top of Visual Composer support, the BeTheme uses a builder called Muffin. The Muffin Builder is great for changing colors sitewide, it has its own SEO tools, and includes numerous customization options for headers and footers.More info / Download Demo

Construction is a premium WordPress theme for building businesses and construction agencies. You can experience true design freedom through an integrated Visual Composer page builder. While we think that the default layouts are already powerful enough for any construction type of a website, there is nothing quite like adding your own finishing touches. Furthermore, importing an existing demo takes only a few minutes. Likewise, you can update the theme to new versions from the same dashboard. Since construction sites are often seen portraying their services in a portfolio layout, you will naturally want to replicate that design pattern. And the best way to do it is using Essential Grid.

Who uses one-page themes these days? They aren’t as frequently seen as other types of designs, but nonetheless, are sought after template styles for people who want simple websites.

Fitness is a fastly growing niche of business with countless ways of presentation.

In the real estate business, you have to be extra precise with the design you decide to use for your website. The reason why is simple. Because you are dealing with high number sales most of the time, it’s vital that your first impressions are striking. Striking in what way? Well, first and foremost, it’s the visual display of the property you are selling. If clients find you through the web, the only time they will see your property catalog is through digital images. And there’s nothing more important than having a way to display your property images beautifully.
The other thing with real estate websites is the search function. If you operate a large real estate agency, you must have a sophisticated search filter so that clients can find what they want.

In fact, whenever you add new properties you can assign custom tags and options that make the search filter work so much better.
Once clients visit your website, they can sort property by its location, status, type, price, room number, and any additional keywords.

Each property has its own full-width slider introduction. Which as we mentioned, is your key selling point for landing a potential new customer. When you publish a new property listing you can mention its technical details, the best features, include an image of the floor plan (which doesn’t interfere with the other parts of the design) and use an additional details tab to include other crucial property information.More info / Download Demo

So, what else does Blade use besides Visual Composer? First of all, theme options are built using a robust framework known as Redux. Second, for adding sliders of any kind, you can use Revolution Slider. Perhaps one of the more authentic features is a multi-functional header. Have you ever seen a website use a header at the bottom of the page? Well, if you haven’t, then the Blade theme will be your first. Furthermore, you can position the header as a sidebar, or default top header.More info / Download Demo
Realto is a real estate theme that is applicable for general real estate businesses but also holiday rentals sites. Both categories are high on the list of successful business types. And with success comes great responsibility. Handling real estate online is all about the richness of pages, in particular, the property pages. The Realto theme works like a digital agency system. Apart from listing property, you can also list agents who are in charge of individual properties. For you, as a real estate agency, it’s good news, because you can invite other agents to come and sell at your agency. And if you manage to establish a solid brand eventually, then making more money based on agent interest alone is going to be highly rewarding.
The property pages remind us of similarities between food/review blog types. You can specify how many bedrooms and bathrooms the property includes, and other factors like plot size and size of the living area. Most of all, it’s your property pictures that matter the most. It’s the one factor that entices clients. Needless to say, adding property videos is another way to increase interest and engagement. So, is there anything else that you should know about Realto? The design framework is Bootstrap with a valid codebase and SEO optimization. Tested to work on modern browsers, but also multiple modern devices. (Fully responsive!) And if you can’t wrap your head around certain features, just use the documentation to establish a better understanding.More info / Download Demo
Roneous is a beautiful multi-purpose theme for business agencies, musicians, technology businesses, modern websites, entrepreneurs, app developers, journalists, and artists. For example, one of the layouts you can install is called App Design. Because of this themes nature and its native support for VComposer, the App Design template has two usage scenarios. The first scenario is to use it for an application development agency. The other scenario is to use App Design for promoting your latest mobile application. And that is sort of how Roneous theme functions overall. A single design could become something else based on your requirements.
But, it’s only possible because of several factors. First of which is custom VC elements. While any theme can become a “Visual Composer theme”, not all WP designers create their custom elements. Fortunately, with Roneous you can explore new ways of creating websites without coding knowledge. In addition to a great design palette, the Roneous theme offers dozens of blog pages, Google Fonts support, translation options, eCommerce support, and full cross-browser compatibility.More info / Download Demo
Whenever people talk about making money online, what is the most common answer to this question? For many, the answer is to write books or stick to producing articles. For others, the answer is to use affiliate marketing or sell digital goods. But, hardly ever the answer is to start an online course! While it’s a slowly growing market, the interest (demand) has begun to pick up in recent years, and supply is steadily growing, too. And why not, sites like Udemy have proven that online courses sell, and often they can make people millionaires overnight. Of course, a successful course requires an in-depth understanding of the topic, but that’s the nature of teaching anyway.
As for this Education Center theme, it’s exactly what you need if you plan to sell online learning materials. You can create an online courses platform within a few hours of activating this theme on your WordPress site. It includes pages for listing teachers, for showcasing courses and their categories, and also personal pages for teachers/courses individually. ThemeREX (authors) recommend that you use Education Center for schools and a similar system of education, but we couldn’t see any limitations for using EC on a personal course platform.More info / Download Demo
Themes like Forgiven remind us why we love WordPress so much. For a WordPress theme to stand out it either needs to be ultra functional or be tailored to a specific market. And Forgiven is the latter in this case. It’s a Church theme that is using a modern design, modest list of features and doesn’t seem to have any performance issues.
So, as a church, your top three priorities are sermons, events, and church members. It’s the nature of running a church in the real world, so why not do it online the same way. Fortunately, with Forgiven it’s easier than ever to do all three simultaneously. You can transcribe sermons and host them on your blog. Once you go through the process of adding a new sermon, you can select who is the speaker, what is the topic, which book it is being given from, and also the name of the series. The sermons can be published in multiple formats, such as text, video, audio, or a PDF document.
But, when you add new events you get a different options environment. In the case of events its easy to add the date, location, time, address, and event description. Churches with a large following isn’t the easiest thing in the world to manage, but if you host sermons/events online then it is easier for your members to access the material from their digitally connected devices.More info / Download Demo
Every day musicians and musical artists make the decision to start their website using WordPress. Not only is WordPress flexible towards beginners, you can find dozens of excellent music-purpose themes. As is the case with Spectra, which is a wonderful music and events theme for solo artists, bands, and agencies. Besides the design, you need to consider the features of your music site. For example, when you publish new songs you might want to preview them directly on your website. Alternatively, you may be an active contributor to sites like Soundcloud and would like to import songs from that platform. The Spectra theme caters specifically to such needs, yet it doesn’t come at the expense of design.
The Music Player inbuilt in the Spectra theme can play your own MP3 uploads or fetch them from Soundcloud using an API. This theme is already configured for the best practices in music related sites. However, it’s possible to take it a step further by modifying pages using Visual Composer.
