Can’t Decide Between the
When it comes to list of features, both themes are almost the
Both are bundled with essential LSVR pluginsfor
events, directory listings, documents, galleries, person directory
and notices. The backend of both themes is almost indistinguishable
from each other. Same applies to the code quality. Even though the
TownPress was released two years before Pressville (so you may
think it is a bit dated), the TownPress 2.0 update was released in
January 2018. This major update was basically a
complete rework of the themefrom the scratch. The
biggest difference between the two, and the one on which you should
probably make the decision, is the design.
is a great choice if you have many high quality
photos of your municipality or some nice stock photos in general.
It is ideal for bigger municipalities which want their site to be
focused more on showcasing the city towards potential tourists or
visitors. There is a lot of space between all the page elements so
everything stands out on its own and nothing is cluttered, which
creates a more modern look.
On the other hand, the
is a great theme for municipal sites aimed mainly
at providing as much information as possible for their residents.
You can use two sidebars at once and there is a higher text
density, so you can display a lot of information without making
your pages too long to scroll. This is more traditional approach to
a municipality theme, especially great for smaller municipalities,
which do not necessary have a lot of high quality photos suitable
for the web.
The good thing to keep in mind is that the
transition between both themes is rather easy. All
your core content like news posts, events, documents, notices,
directory listings and galleries you’ve created in one theme will
be available in the other one as well (in case you decide to switch
from one to another in the future).
30 Days Money Back Guarantee
I truly believe that both the
are the best municipal WordPress themes. But even
the best theme may not always fit your project. So I am offering a
30 days money back guarantee for both themes. If
you are not satisfied with your purchase, just and I will issue you
a refund. Please note that this is not an Envato offer, feel free
to me for more info.
