As someone who demands both performance and usability, GeneratePress has truly been a complete transformation of the way I develop and design my WordPress sites. From ecommerce to blogs, it’s one theme to rule them all!
– Brian Jackson, Co-founder, forgemedia
GeneratePress has been my ‘Ride or Die’ WordPress theme for 6 years and continues to grow with me as a developer. A super heavyweight of possibilities whilst staying super light on its feet. With more emphasis on creating a more sustainable web, GP creates the foundations to turn your websites green! But it’s not just the theme, the GP support team (family) are the gold standard. I honestly don’t know how they do it!

I’ve been using GeneratePress on all site builds since 2017. For all the obvious reasons: speed, stability, performance, and stellar support. Now with the new Dynamic Block Elements, I can pull in custom fields and build beautiful dynamic layouts all within the GeneratePress ecosystem. Who says you can’t have it all!

GeneratePress has been the core of our website and e-commerce services for more than 5 years. We can build virtually anything with it knowing that our sites will be easy to maintain, fully compatible with any plugin we throw at it, and perfectly optimized both for performance and responsiveness.

Being a WordPress performance enthusiast, I require my sites to load as fast as possible. That means using the lightest, most powerful theme I have encountered: GeneratePress. Tom’s incredible support and rich features provide the best possible foundation for any WordPress project.

So happy I found GeneratePress. It’s been my framework for over a year, maybe 2 years. It gets better and better all the time. Loads of hooks and filters for dev work, and all the basics covered for the non-coders too.
