Kadence Child Themes

Our premium Kadence child themes are for those who value SEO, and speed.

The Kadence theme is a fully customizable and seriously fast WordPress theme that we use as a framework to build all of our premium child themes.

We also use Kadence blocks, a plugin that extends the block editor and gives you all the tools you need to edit and build beautiful pages + blog posts within the WordPress editor, without the bloat of a page builder.

We use the free Kadence theme and free Kadence blocks plugin to create our themes — no additional purchases are required! But you do have the option to unlock more features and blocks when you purchase Kadence Pro and/or Kadence Blocks Pro.

Head on over to the Customizer to adjust the color palette to match your brand, choose your fonts from the Google fonts library, and upload your logo.

Want to tweak the theme’s design a bit more? There are hundreds of customization options, including:

  • Drag + drop header and footer builder
  • Sticky and transparent header options

Add your content.

Your new theme will include gorgeous page templates that were made using Kadence & WordPress blocks. Simply swap out the demo copy + images with your own content.

Each theme also comes with its very own Block Collection, which allows you to insert sections or entire pages onto any page quickly. Sections and blocks on the pages can easily be duplicated, deleted, or rearranged.
