These days free WordPress themes are getting better and better. The Blocksy theme has so many free functionalities that you almost start to wonder what is left for the PRO version. In this video, I will walk you through the free options and show you what is possible in the Pro version.
Besides all the functionalities it is very lightweight and really easy to configure this theme. The makers of the theme reached out to me a few times in the last months and when I gave it a try I was really impressed! This is the best free theme I have seen so far!

1:22:02 Overview of The Pro Version
The first thing I see when I open the Blokcsy Theme Customizer is the nice and clean layout. I have never seen this before. With a single click on an icon, you can switch between light mode and dark mode. The settings are very well organized which makes it easy to navigate through the different settings.
The Blocksy Theme Header Builder
The header builder is simply amazing! The header contains 3 rows and each row has 3 areas where you can add multiple elements that you can add. Like a Menu, Search Icon, Social Icons, Button, Cart, Custom HTML, etc. Every element can be styles in size, colors, etc. and every row can be styles. You can make it sticky, make it transparent, make it transparent on one page and visible on another page. And it is so easy to do! And for the mobile header, you can customize it to your wishes.
The Blocksy Theme Footer
The same principle applies to the footer. There are 3 rows and in those rows, you can decide which widgets you want to place.
The Blog Page
There is a lot of freedom when it comes to creating the blog page. You can decide how many columns there should be for the blogpost, how they should be displayed and every element within the blogpost can be hidden or adjusted. You can also make use of a sidebar. It is also easy to customize the blog post layout.
Blocksy WooCommerce Settings
You can make the WooCommerce pages look so beautiful and clean. You can also make parts within the WooCommerce Product page sticky. A great feature is the hover feature in the WooCommerce Product Archive. That enables you to show a second image when you hover over it.
There are extra plugins or extensions within the free version of the Blocksy theme. Like the Cookie Consent Plugin and latest post plugin. They are both amazing! There is also an integration with MailChimp.
