Some web designers labor under the mistaken assumption. They think that although a multipurpose WordPress theme might do some things quite well. They assume that it can’t possibly do everything to your satisfaction.
It’s the old “Jack of all trades, master of none” adage. A saying that admittedly holds true for lots of things. But not for top multipurpose themes like these.
Is your objective to build a business website or a portfolio site? Or, perhaps, publish a blog or set up an online store? If you want to build a couple of dozen websites over the next few months, that's also fine. Any of the following website building tools will serve you well.
It’s true that on occasion a specialized theme might serve you better. After all, that’s its purpose.
For most projects, however, a multipurpose theme is a wise investment; so, why not check these 12 out?
You’ll be glad you did.
Be Theme is a website building machine that can do anything and do it well. The sheer number of core features (40 or so, plus the brand new Header Builder) will see to that.
It’s not only the number of core features that makes Be Theme the biggest WordPress theme of all (as well as being one of the most flexible). It’s Be’s library of over 400 pre-built websites that makes it oh-so-easy to create virtually any website type or style.
Start by downloading a pre-built website with a single click, customize it using the Muffin Builder and Options Panel, use the Layout Generator to create new pages, and the Shortcode Generator and shortcode library to get precisely the design you want down to the tiniest of details.
Creating a user-friendly UX isn’t a problem either. The foundation for your UX is embedded in the pre-build websites, plus they’re responsive and search engine friendly.
If you have your website content at the ready, it’s not unusual to have a complex website up and running in as little as 4 hours.
Jupiter X is another multipurpose theme that will do virtually anything you ask of it, including building websites that most website-building themes, tools, and web designers tend to treat as being unbuildable.
That’s particularly true with blog pages and portfolios. Many if not most themes provide templates with a few options, which is OK for some uses but actually places limitations on what you can actually accomplish.
Not so with Jupiter X. If you have a design in mind for a portfolio or blog layout that stretches the envelope, Jupiter X will help you design and build it to your exact specifications.
The same is true with your WooCommerce shop, where the Shop Customizer lets you customize store elements that other themes do not (e.g., carts, and checkout pages).
Jupiter X is a makeover of Jupiter, a theme created by Artbees, a member of the Power Elite Envato Hall of Fame. It’s scalable and developer friendly, and its exceptionally user friendly as well.
Its large and growing customer base of happy users will tell you all that needs to be said about Uncode, a creative multipurpose theme that just happens to be one of ThemeForest’s all time bestsellers.

Unlike some themes, Uncode is not based on a series of standalone demos; you can import any demo page at any time without importing data you won’t be using.
There’s much more, including 200+ option-rich design modules, and 28 powerful Visual Composer modules.
