Very informative. It looks good and is easy to read.

This is an informative article. I have used several themes, from eggnews which I really liked but, their support was no where to be found when I needed it. I used a theme called twenty seventeen and that was an awesome theme, as well.

Now, I am using Agama and it seems to be running slow on mobile phones. I do not know CSS code so, this could be a problem. I am so tried of having to switch themes. I just wish I could find the right one. I will look over the themes that you suggest and see how it works out for me. Is there a way to tell in advance if the theme will be responsive on mobile, PC, and Mac?

According to my Agama it was suppose to be responsive on all three but, it seems to know be that way. Thank you in advance for this timely article. Have an awesome day.

    Thanks for dropping by Lakisha. The best theme for your website would be Hueman or Hiero. Those themes are responsive on all environments. After installing the new theme, have a look at the performance here to gauge how well your new theme is performing.
    Have a great day too.

Good luck on getting the best theme going for you. I’m using Hiero on my site. I like the basic feel to it. Best wishes for continued success!

    Thank you Scott. I also love the basic feel of Hiero. It’s a light theme hence you won’t have to constantly chase after the site support.
