iThemes or Revolution WordPress Themes - Which are Better?

by Travis Van Slooten 14 replies
I'm looking to upgrade several of my WordPress sites and want to purchase premium themes that offer multi-developer licenses. So far the only two I've been able to find are these two.

Of the two, which do you believe is better - and why?

And are there others out there I have missed that I should consider?

Thanks,

Travis

      There are lots of others, especially if you're looking for additional flexibility and don't mind getting under the hood a bit.

      One recently released theme that provides a boatload of flexibility is Headway. I haven't used it myself, but it looks like it's well thought out. It's so flexible that it's more of a platform or framework for child themes rather than a full-blown theme on its own.

      And speaking of theme frameworks, if you really don't mind getting your hands dirty, there are several really good ones. Some of them are even free and open source, like WP itself. Check out this comparison of several frameworks.

      I've recently started doing new sites using Hybrid (mentioned in the above resource). It's free (though he does charge $25 per year for access to premium support and tutorials - a bargain IMO) relatively easy, and extremely flexible. You can be up and running and creating child themes in a few minutes. There is a bit of learning if you haven't worked with child themes before, but I find that it's well worth the effort.

        Has anyone actually used this theme yet? I'm looking for some honest (non-affiliate ) feedback.

        Thanks.

    I had pretty poor customer service and hiccups with ithemes. I haven't used revolution so I can't comment on it personally, but know a lot of people who use it with good success.

    I have used both iThemes and Revolution one. Sorry I havent used the Revolution 2 themes(Only custom made now).

    iTmes:
    Lots of theme options
    Poor customer support

    Rev 1:
    Great customer support
    The themes though are good does look run of the mill.

    They are different. Use the theme that works for you. I had one client that needed something more funky/social/urban and another that wanted one that REvolution had on their site. Depends what you want and need.
