Website templates: recommendations exchange

How is it going, Elfsighters?

Since we all work with websites here, I guess most of you use website templates. Why not share your findings and recommendations? I’m sure it will be a highly informative thread for a lot of users :slightly_smiling_face:

I’ll start! I’d love to recommend TemplateMonster marketplace, where you can find a whole host of templates, graphics, and media. They work for WordPress, WooCommerce, Shopify, and HTML (both free and premium), so basically there is a solution for any use case.

You can check out a couple of examples in this Toggle list.

Template 1: Hazel - Clean Minimalist Multi-Purpose WordPress Theme


Template 2: Techup - IoT and AI Tech Startup WordPress Theme

Live websites:

Template 3: Nutritia - Healthy Nutrition and Dietology WordPress Theme

And what is your experience with ready-made templates, and which ones would you suggest trying out? Maybe you have some favorite ones?


Does anyone else use Kajabi? I have a blog post with all my favorite Kajabi templates.


Erica, I never heard about Kajabi. It looks like that’s a SAAS service.

As for templates I really like the PathSoft template on Templatemonster. I used it for one business website and for making a basic website for the university.


In our Kallen Web Design business, we build only custom websites using a bootstrap framework on base html/css for fast, best practice optimized, beautiful websites. Normally we do about 4-8 new websites a year, plus offer the best ongoing support for our hundreds of customers we’ve had since 2006. But right now, we are working on 4 new client websites: An aircraft coating restoration site, a catholic church site, a ketamine for depression site, and a pressure washing site. So fun!

But lately we were asked to support a wordpress website built by someone else. The site was built using a paid theme called Kroth. A demo site is here:

It has a built-in website builder, a great slider, and so many other easy features, for a $59 one-time fee. You can buy it here: (I don’t earn anything by pointing this out to you).

I liked it so much I ended up using it for a personal website project just for fun. Super easy, and quick email support for any quirks and questions I had.


oh, really nice!

I used to go back and forth with a few different options, but over the last 5+ years I’ve been using Salient from ThemeNectar. They keep updating their design tools and templates and I keep testing it against other builders and keep going back to Salient. They’ve made my life much easier and my clients super happy…and their support is always awesome. They’ve implemented a lot of the feedback provided by the community so it just keeps getting better and better.

Hey @Helga ,

I’m not supposed to share my clients names so I can’t provide a list of my sites unfortunately, but here are some live examples that you can see for Salient from ThemeNectar:

And here’s a page with just general info but it has a lot of full demos you can explore:
