Ease Of Use


Kadence Theme is very easy to use with their drag and drop header/footer builder, globally linked color palette, and deep integrations with popular 3rd party themes.

Price / Value


You won’t be able to find another free WordPress theme that holds nothing back. Despite that, they managed to take the value even further with their Pro addon.



Kadence support is unlike anything you have experienced. It’s US-based and they are quick to understand the problem then go beyond to support you.

Kadence Theme Review: Wrap Up

Whether you go with the free Kadence Theme or upgrade to their Pro addon, Kadence is doing things that other themes are not.

I suppose they have the late movers advantage by being able to see what other themes do wrong and innovating on their weaknesses.

Something as simple as a centralized globally linked color palette, it makes so much sense yet Kadence is the only theme with this feature. Same goes for how the theme handles topography.

Also, I feel a greater sense of trust in the code quality, support, and future because they have been in business since 2013, are based in the US, and English is their first language. Less explaining when you need help.
