#1
Hello,
I have a Woocommerce store to build with Alidropship and for the theme I'm hesitate between Flatsome and Porto.

What is the most compatible with Alidropship ?

We recommend you to use Flatsome, it is compatible with AliDropship Woo plugin.

Thanks, but did you make some compatibility test with Porto ?
That a huge Flatsome competitor.

Flatsome builder is very limited, few number of blocks, the shop designs are not pretty and the HTML & CSS code is messy, no tag ID, Style embedded with the html tag, the CSS cascade is endless.

In fact, Flatsome looks old in every way.

I know that some of our clients use Porto on their sites. Inevitably, however, they find that some plugin options work incorrectly or don't work at all.

We have some tested and recommended themes for AliDropship Woo https://alidropship.com/themes/, we don't plan to test Porto in the near future.
Also you can check this thread concerning WooCommerce themes and ask your questions to our forum members https://forum.alidropship.com/threads/whats-your-favourite-woocommerce-theme.7781/.

Maybe you should plan it. ;)

It as more than 19000 sales and it's the second woocommerce theme most sold each week.

Your list of premium compatible themes is super light (2:confused:) and they are both have a design outdated and most of all the code is really messy.

Thanks,

did your themes works without the Alidropship plugin ?

I ask because I would like to try them to see how customizable they are but I have with all of them this error

Code:

If you mean themes for AliDropship Original plugin they works only with the plugin.

I'm using Porto on my newest shop, still building it, but so far have not noticed any compatibility issues. Would be nice to know what those are, if any?
Product import works
Review & image import works
Cart & Checkout works...

Thanks @cansme3 that a relief.

What I like with Porto beside the shop design is the admin panel who look like "Newspaper" (tagDiv) or "Publisher".

What theme did you finally use if it's not indiscret ?

Finally I will use Flatsome to be sure, but I used Porto on another project.

Porto has some very nice shop designs, but the support is really bad, they crashed my site 2 months ago playing with the htaccess file trying to solve a JS problem? :( And the bug still unsolved ...

So if you have some good PHP/HTML/JS and CSS skill, it's a very good theme, if it's not your case it's better to use Flatsome, I do not like it (to limited for me) but so far I do not had any issue with it.
