OceanWP Cons

OceanWP is a young theme and is not created by a developer with a long track record. Since the framework of the theme was a GPL fork from another theme, in my opinion, the options are not as intuitive as I would like to see.

That being said, the developer is very fast to resolve any issue that may come up which shows his dedication to OceanWP.

Also, many of the theme options are reliant upon option boxes in posts & pages which become cumbersome and will be confusing to people new to WordPress.

There are currently no active OceanWP Coupon or OceanWP Discounts available. However, sometimes there are promotions on their website to save you 10% or so.

OceanWP Review: Wrap Up

OceanWP is the most feature-packed free theme that is available.

For a theme that work with any page builder, it has some innovative features that I have never seen in a theme. Primarily it’s strength is with e-commerce websites and has all the feature that you would normally expect to pay for.

If you are new to WordPress, the customizer options and the option boxes found in each post/page can be overwhelming and hard to make sense of at times.

    After watching many multiple videos on OceanWP, I feel pretty confident that I’d be A Okay buying the Pro version for ALL my work sites while I experiment with the other free ones for projects. This was the first theme I tried and because I spent so many hours familiarizing myself with it, I’m most comfortable using it and looking forward to the Pro version upgrades.

    Adam I’m having an issue with using the costomization panel right now when I have OceanWP installled. But if I switch it to another theme, the customization works fine. Can you help me with this?

    Hello Adam. I’m a freelance designer and I’m trying to start building websites with WordPress.

    I would like to be able to build the content pages, but also control things like the look and width of the main menus and headers, in desktop versions as well as mobile. What combination would you favor for that? Astra Pro and Elementor Pro or OceanWP and Elementor Pro? Or is there any other theme /page builder combination that you think would work better? I’ve used OceanWP and Elementor Free version as a test and it seems pretty good, but I’d like more customization on things like the look of the mobile menu.

    Thanks in advance for your answer!!

  5. It’s pure functionality and ease of use is simply the best thing I have worked with in years. It reminds me of when Genesis framework hit.

    I can now offer my clients more customization and at even cheaper rates. Nick has made a beautiful piece of art work in this development. Worth every penny and combined with Elementor Pro I will never have to work with another client who insists on a themeforest template.

    Great review Adam.
