X Pro Theme Review: Things To Consider

The biggest issue I have with the X Pro theme is that they decided to build an overly complicated interface to build custom headers and footers. My opinion, but I believe they could have done better.

Personally, I think this was a huge mistake. I much more prefer the way Elementor & Beaver Builder did it, you use that same page builder interface that your users are already familiar with, versus forcing another learning curve down their throat.

X Pro Theme Review: Summary

If you want to enjoy using the tools you own, that you have to work with each day, then the X theme may or may not be for you. They had a huge first movers advantage but I think they could have done better than building a second complicated interface.

  1. I realize we’re talking about builders but I see you went with the Astra theme for this site. Can you speak a little about why and what builders you’re currently using? Thanks.

  2. Hi Adam, all good. I also didn’t like that the interface was new, although I have been using it since my last post daily and now I’m quite used to it.

    I downloaded Elementor the other day, I will be looking into that over the weekend. I definitely am starting to rethink my position on 1 license per site with themeco, as I still do few sites for family and friends and do not charge (I’m changing that now), but it has become quite a cost.

    Thanks for the input once again, and chat soon. fabio

  3. Hi Adam,

    I have been a website developer for some time, and over the past 8-10 years, I have almost stopped developing my own material and resorted to using WordPress with themes. I grew to practically love X Theme, and later Pro, and have been using it exclusively on all my own sites and client web sites.

    I stumbled upon your video about the X Pro review, and I will be honest, the first few minutes I was becoming a little defensive inside 🙂 , almost as if it were my own product. I continued to watch your review, and within minutes, I really thought what you were saying was exactly what I felt. I let me loyalty to X force myself to learn and like X Pro, although as you say, it is non-GPL, it did take a few hours to learn my way around, and it is not a product that I have ever let any customer use.

    I have recently downloaded Divi, although I have not used it yet, and will be looking into Beaver Builder.

    So in essence, thank you for your honest review as it has forced me to open my eyes to alternate products, and apologies for initially feeling so defensive 🙂

    1. Before you commit to either Divi or Beaver Builder (I have used both) I would highly recommend giving a look at Elementor. with version 2.0 brings some very powerful tools which allow you to focus more on design than development. Divi has a really pretty, albeit a bit distracting at times interface, and you can do some interesting things with it, but it suffers some of the same “locked in” issues that you may have had with X and Pro.

      Ultimately, whichever you choose, I think you are going to be happier than you were with Themeco.

      Good luck and happy building.

    2. Wow, thank you for your complete honesty in your comment. Yes I don’t think I did the best job of communicating that my only, and main, gripe is that they created a separate interface. Go take a look at Elementor Pro v2, which is currently in beta. But it has a header / footer builder that it uses the same page builder interface. Beaver Builder did the same thing.

      I’ll try to do a better job moving forward in explaining my point.
