AMP WordPress themes
As AMP-enabled themes, these templates look great on mobile devices. However, they also look good on smartphones when viewed without the AMP technology. In addition, all of these themes are either new or updated recently, so you can expect them to work great with the newest versions of WordPress.Here are my top picks for best AMP WordPress themes for 2020.
1. Newspaper by tagDiv (Themeforest)
This beautiful template has gained over 65,000 customers and it’s a great choice for any blog, news, magazine, or editorial website. Newspaper is the best publishing WordPress theme on ThemeForest with a fast and well-optimized design to handle large amounts of content.
Powered by a drag-and-drop page builder for the front end, premium plugins and widgets, a monetization system, social network integrations, and SEO optimized markup, the Newspaper theme has a lot to offer. Everything is customizable on the front end of your site using the tagDiv Composer page builder. The newly added tagDiv Cloud Library also brings you 420+ pre-designed elements and templates for articles and pages. In addition, dozens of one-click full website designs called “demos” can be used. Beautiful header and footer styles are just a few of the powerful Newspaper Theme tools when using these demo designs.
If you want your website to load the content on mobile devices instantly, the custom tagDiv AMP plugin is totally integrated with all the Newspaper theme’s features. Easy to set up, it is optimized to give your site a performance boost. With the tagDiv AMP plugin enabled on your site, Google will display a fine blue lightning logo on search and deliver the amazing articles in a flash. The content optimized for mobile devices obtains a better rank on search engines, and also guarantees a great experience for your users.
2. Fona by Clever Soft (Themeforest)
Want an AMP-friendly eCommerce WordPress theme? Fona has gorgeous product pages that adapt effortlessly to fit Google’s AMP content guidelines.
If you’re looking for a modern design, Fona will be a great choice for your eCommerce store. It uses a minimalist and mostly flat design with a few uber-modern touches like the pillowy drop shadows around buttons and other callouts.
Font is also hugely customizable. There are 12 demo sites showing off how flexible the template is. In addition, you can use an automatic installer to set up your site just like any of the demo sites including all the same content in just a minute. It also bundled a few premium plugins to add drag-and-drop page building, slider creation, and responsive mega menus.
3. Soledad by PenciDesign (Themeforest)
If you want to create a unique site or build multiple websites, you should check out Soledad. This multi-concept theme is incredibly customizable and can be adapted to any niche. And of course, regardless of how you customize the theme, it will remain AMP compatible.
You may be wondering, how can Soledad be so customizable? This power comes from its integration with the Visual Composer plugin which gives you a drag-and-drop interface for making your own page templates. Soledad includes dozens of page elements that you can add and reorder to make new pages. You can then reuse any template you make on as many pages as you want.
Due to the massive amount of options in this theme, it may be overkill for a small site. You should know that learning how to use this theme will take a little extra time. However, because it’s so adaptable, you can reuse it over and over again on new sites and create completely different designs.
4. Jannah News by Tie Labs (Themeforest)
Jannah News is another incredibly customizable news theme like the Publisher theme also included in this list. One thing that makes it stand out is that it has a lot of the standard features you’d expect in a modern WordPress theme, but there are also a lot of cool, unusual features.
Jannah News has a built-in integration for sending web push notifications. You can also display the local weather in the header of the site, feature trending articles, and make videos sticky so they stay visible as visitors scroll down the page.
As you’d expect, Jannah news looks great on AMP-enabled pages and the regular mobile display. There are pre-made demos you can auto-install and there’s even an importer for copying over customization settings and data from other themes by Tie Labs and other Themeforest authors.
5. Chap by WebSevenDev (Themeforest)
Chap is a simple and customizable theme you can use to create an AMP-ready WordPress theme. It has a variety of demo sites available showcasing how it can be used for different niches.
If you’re a developer, you may appreciate that this theme is built with bootstrap. This will make it easy and familiar to customize with a child theme. If you’re wondering how to add the various sections featured in the demo site homepages, those can all be added with shortcodes. Chap has loads of shortcodes that you can add into any post or page to include interesting and dynamic site elements.
Another cool feature in this theme is the WooCommerce compatibility. You can use this integration to add an eCommerce store to your website complete with a shopping cart and beautiful checkout page.
