The JupiterX theme for WordPress touts itself as the conversion-driven theme that can be used for any type of website. It’s also a theme that offers plenty of customization options and it was optimized for SEO.

In this post, we’ll take a look at its ease of use, cover the main features, and discuss theme’s pros and cons.

Ease of Use – 4/5

Let’s take a look at how easy it is to install and configure the JupiterX theme.

Installation

To get started with JupiterX, you’ll need to login to your WordPress website and navigate to Appearance > Themes > Upload new. From there, upload the zip folder with the theme, install and activate it.

You’ll need to enter your purchase code to register the theme and once that process is done, you can proceed with the theme setup.

Theme Setup

After the theme has been registered, you’ll see a notice in your dashboard prompting you to install JupiterX Core plugin as well as a few other required plugins.

JupiterX Required Plugins

You can go ahead and install those plugins and activate them. After they have been activated, go to JupiterX > Control Panel. There is a helpful video that shows you how to get started with the theme.

In the theme’s control panel, you can install a premade demo site. You can search for a particular style, filter options based on header type, components, and more.

You can preview each template, download Photoshop files, and import the desired template with a single click.

Importing template with JupiterX

Once your template has been imported, you can either customize the style setting by using the LiveCustomizer or you can edit the imported pages.

It’s worth mentioning that the JupiterX theme uses Elementor as its page builder so you can easily tweak the settings for each element and each page using the Elementor interface.

Features – 4/5

Now that we’ve covered the installation and setup process, let’s take a look at the core features of the theme.

Demo Sites

The JupiterX theme comes with 250+ demo sites or templates. The templates range from freelance, business, personal, blog, corporate, and more. As mentioned earlier, you can search for a particular industry as well as filter the templates based on category.

JupiterX Templates

On top of demo sites, the JupiterX theme comes with premade header layouts so you can easily choose between different positions for your logo, navigation menu, and more.

Customization Options

When it comes to customization options, the theme doesn’t disappoint. As you can see from the screenshot, you can easily customize every aspect of the theme. While having so many options is nice, it can also be overwhelming for beginners not to mention confusing.

Customization Options

As mentioned earlier, you have even more styling options when you start editing your pages with Elementor. You can tweak style settings for each individual element on the page as well as for each section.

Blocks

JupiterX comes with a number of premade blocks made specifically for Elementor. These blocks are reusable page sections that you can add to any page and anywhere on the page. They include sections for featured news, galleries, services, and more.

Premade Blocks JupiterX

You can favorite sections so you can easily find them. Once you’ve added a section, you can continue modifying it as you normally would any other section.

WooCommerce Options

If you’re looking to use this theme for your online store, there are a few features that will come in handy. For starters, you can customize the colors for your online store.

You can also import premade templates for product pages, customize individual settings for images, product descriptions, add to cart buttons, and more. In addition to that, you can enable product quick view and display the number of steps in your checkout process which are handy features that can help increase conversions in your store.

WooCommerce Options

Page Title Options

The JupiterX theme offers a unique feature that allows you to customize individual title bars for each page. You can customize whether the page title should use h1, set the margins and padding, add custom fonts, change colors, and more. This is useful if you want more control over your page titles and can help you improve your site’s search engine rankings.

Reliability – 4/5

The JupiterX theme has 4,5-star rating and over 100,000 sales on Envato Market. The theme can be used to create any type of website and has over 250 premade demo sites that can be installed with a single click. Another benefit of the theme is that it can be used to create an online store thanks to its integration with WooCommerce.

Aside from WooCommerce, it also integrates with a number of popular plugins which include WPML, Yoast, bbPress, BuddyPress, and more.

However, when you take into consideration that the theme prompts you to install an additional 23 plugins to work properly, it’s easy to see that the theme can quickly become bulky.

Another downside of the JupiterX theme to consider is the standard licensing issue. At $59 per license, the theme is a bit on the pricey side.

Support – 4/5

When it comes to support, as per Envato Market policy, item support includes:

  • Availability of the author to answer questions
  • Answering technical questions about item’s features
  • Assistance with reported bugs and issues
  • Help with included 3rd party assets

When you access their support center, you’ll find a knowledge base with tutorials and articles that will help you with any potential theme issues.

Alternatively, you can try finding a solution for any potential problems you might have on their Community forums.

On top of that, you can also watch video tutorials as well as initiate a chat with their support team or submit a ticket.

Support requests are handled 24/7 but only during the first 6 months that your Envato Market license gives you. You’ll need to extend the support after that to continue receiving support from the theme’s author.

Pricing – 3/5

The JupiterX theme can be bought from ThemeForest. It’s available for $59 which includes 6 months of support and updates. If you want to extend the support to cover the entire year, you’ll need to pay an additional $6.38.

The license covers the use of theme on one website which means if you want to use it on multiple websites, you’ll need to purchase another license. Needless to say, this can get quite pricey if you own a large number of websites so this is another aspect where the JupiterX theme falls short.

Final Thoughts – 4/5

The Jupiter theme is multipurpose WordPress theme that offers an impressive number of premade sites to choose from as well as plenty of header layouts to make your site look more unique. On top of that it also offers more than 100 unique blocks as well as the ability to customize your WooCommerce store.

However, while testing the theme, I’ve found that it’s rather bulky and requires a number of different plugins installed on top of the theme itself. While it’s nice that the majority of editing can be done with Elementor, the theme is sometimes glitchy.

The biggest downside of the JupiterX theme is the licensing model which is a common issue with all ThemeForest themes.

As such, if you’re a designer looking for a solid theme to use on all your projects, the JupiterX theme is not the best choice. But if you’re a business owner or a blogger looking to refresh their website, the Jupiter theme might be the right theme for you.
