Now first up Generate Press is available as a free theme and if you are starting up with a budget of nothing… if you combine Generate Presses free theme with Elementor, the free page builder Plug-in, then you are set to go.
That being said upgrading to the Generate Press Pro Plug-in unlocks features that to me are must haves. Once you’ve used Generate Press Pro there is no going back…
Now before I met this plug-in I hated WordPress. I come from the World of Dreamweaver where you can do anything, it just takes time.
I even went through a Joomla (a similar FREE content management system to WordPress) love period, till someone hacked it, and I lost 12 months work.
Lesson here – backup your work and your updates…. automaticly to somewhere else on the net.
Never assume the hosting company will help as I quickly discovered. NEVER…
So in addition to my hosts backup I now use the backup feature in the Hepsia Control panel and it automaticly backs up to DropBox. (once you set it up).
Yes, you can probably afford to loose a days work, but a weeks, months, or year worth is time you’ll never get back.
Yes I had a backup on my local hard drive but that failed the week before the hack… (thanks Apple – but it was my fault for not having that backed up)
Sorry I digress
Now Dreamweaver was fine as a WYSIWYG editor till Adobe got hold of it and around the same time the world of CSS and HTML 5 appeared. The WYSIWYG part became a lot more involved… sigh
It is truely now a web designer and programming tool.
Don’t get me wrong the new Dreamweaver is a fine tool and I still pay Adobe every month for the Adobe Cloud Package but I mainly use that to access Photoshop, Premier and After Effects. I’d be lucky if I load Dreamweaver twice a month…
Simply put with the combination of WordPress, the Generate Press Pro Plug-in, and the free page builder like the Elementor Plug-in, one can easily build a website with just a small learning curve and in a short period of time. And it can look great, actually even better than great.
But you might say “What about a membership site or an Amazon store or a Sales Funnel Builder?
You just add the necessary plug-in’s in and create.
How do I know?
Cause I do all of those things on this website and the only monthly fee I pay is my hosting fee and the yearly domain charge, apart from transaction fees and taxes…
It even runs my secure download area where after purchase you can access and download a product.
So what does the Generate Press Premium WordPress Plug-in do?
It gives you the control to do, well pretty well everything. Ok lets walk through the additions.
It adds on in what first appearance doesn’t seem to be that much… but once we drill down in the menus a lot is revealed.
It gets into the nitty gritty and for me this was a gamechanger.
For the first time in WordPress I could actually get what I wanted.
So lets go deeper.
I’ve used a lot of themes since this and while they may in some ways appear different many times i have been left looking for the sort of controls that Generate Press Pro Offers.
Just being able to turn off sections in the page editor screen is so nice.
Create a Landing Page with no navigation at the start of a sales funnel, tick a box and it’s gone.
Don’t like the colour of the navigation change it
Once you understand the way to navigate the many options in Generate Press Pro everything else is really up to your creativity.
Now there are 14 add-ons that are included in the plug-in and each just adds to your options.
All i can say as a summary is I like it so much I bought it. You are seeing it it in use now on this site and in other sites I am building or have built.
The license you get with it means you can install it on any sites you own or sites you develop for others.
So unlimited installs 🙂
