Tom has been using WordPress for over 10 years. He has been creating websites since he was 11 years old.

He is a "real person" who devotes all of his non-family time to GeneratePress and its development.

As of 2022, GeneratePress has been installed on over 400,000 sites that we can verify. It is a WordPress theme with numerous users, including myself.

You can create a site that loads quickly with fast page display. There is no unnecessary code or unnecessary features.

It comes with carefully selected clean code and sophisticated features and customizations.

No unnecessary features...? Is that practicality okay?"

You would think so.

No, I don't like Elementor because it slows down the site..."

More details will be explained later.

A further extreme advantage.

What's more, GeneratePress can be installed and used for up to 500 sites. It is officially allowed, but you can also create sites for your clients.

Disadvantages of GeneratePress

GeneratePress has no detailed features.

So no detailed features....

For example, GeneratePress does not have the ability to place a CTA at the bottom of a blog post or a notification bar at the top of the page, as my blog does.

generatepress Function

In other words, for those who do not need such features, it is not a big problem.

I guess that's about it. If I had to say, I would say English.

GeneratePress is in English. The manual must also be read in English.

However, if you are using Google Chrome, you can use Chrome Translate to read it without any problems.

Also, the setup itself is not difficult.

If you have any difficulties in setting up the system, I will try to write a video or article explaining from scratch how to set up and use GeneratePress, so please let me know in the comments section.

We will consider it.

Comparison of free and paid versions of GeneratePress

GeneratePress is available in free and paid versions.

The free version of GenaratePress has very limited functionality compared to the paid version.

To be clear.The free version of GeneratePress alone is not enough to create a well-designed WordPress site.

Customizability limitations are significant.

As a specific point, the free version has very limited customization of the blog post listing page layout, colors, text, width, background images, etc.

Please watch the video below that I prepared. The customizability is different.

With the free GeneratePress, you are limited to changing the colors of the site, so you cannot add or change the colors of each part of the site. (If you have CSS knowledge, you can force yourself to specify them...).

Create designs just like Lego bricks.

There are also advantages to using the GeneratePress paid version.

It is a combination of the free GenerateBlocks plugin that allows you to visually customize any part of your site at will and intuitively.

You can customize your site just like Lego blocks. You have a high degree of freedom.

GeneratePress Pricing

The paid version of GeneratePress offers two pricing plans: an annual plan and a lifetime (buy-in) plan.

GeneratePress Rates

The annual plan rate is $59/year and the lifetime price is $249/one-time payment.

For an annual plan, I can purchase it for about $59 x 140 yen = 8,260 yen in US dollar-yen conversion. It is cheaper than Japanese WordPress themes.

By the way, GeneratePress also has a money-back guarantee. You can use the money-back guarantee within 30 days from the date of purchase. You probably don't need to refund your money. You will love it.

What is the difference between an annual plan and a lifetime plan?

The only difference between an annual plan and a lifetime plan is whether you pay annually or buy outright in a single payment.

Support is provided for both, and both plans can be installed and used on up to 500 WordPress sites. ...It's amazing.

Our blog presents only selected products. Among them.GeneratePress is well worth the price you pay in terms of ease of use, practicality, and features.

GeneratePress vs. other WordPress themes

We have reviewed several WordPress themes on our blog so far.

In fact, you may be wondering which WordPress theme is right for you. So let's compare it to some popular WordPress themes that are similar to GeneratePress.

GeneratePress vs Astra

generatepress Astra

Both are popular WordPress themes; GeneratePress's greatest feature is its"Display speed & lightness."It is. It has all the features, but if you need a well-designed site that looks like it was created by a designer, we recommend this Astra.

Astra is another lightweight WordPress theme that is more customizable than GeneratePress. It also features more control over its design.

However, if a page builder such as Elementor is installed on Astra, GeneratePress with the GenerateBlocks plugin is faster.

Featured on our blog.BrizyAstra is also a good WordPress theme to combine with

Astra is the Brizy officially recommended WordPress theme, although it is not impossible to use GeneratePress.

In addition, GeneratePress can be installed and used on up to 500 sites. Astra can be installed and used on an unlimited number of sites.

Summary of this article

GeneratePress Reputation Review

Thank you for reading this long article. My impression at the time of my first use of GeneratePress, which wasToo fast."I'm not sure.

Among WordPress themes in the world today, it is by far the fastest and lightest in terms of display speed.

Now that we are about to relaunch our blog, we are even wondering if we should rebuild it with GeneratePress. I recommend it with confidence.

My personal favorite points are.GenerateBlocks plugin.

If you have WordPress page builder plugins such as Elementor or Brizy and do not want to slow down your site even a tenth of a second, the GenerateBlocks plugin, which allows you to design pages in lightweight blocks, is useful.

Designing pages in Elemetor or Brizy is great.... But in many cases, it's not enough to use those page builders. For example, when the main focus is on blogging.

Now, I'm getting side-tracked. If you are looking for a WordPress theme that is lightweight and fast displaying, I recommend GeneratePress.
