The7 WordPress theme was launched on 2013. Since then has grown and became one of the most popular premium WordPress themes, with over 67000 downloads. The7 features full and seamless integration with Visual Composer and Ultimate Addons. Its 750+ Theme Options allows crafting almost any imaginable design. And Design Wizard feature lets you create a boutique-grade website design in mere minutes. The7 comes bundled with Visual Composer page builder, Ultimate Addons, Slider Revolution, Layer Slider, Go Pricing Tables and ConvertPlug. It is also fully compatible with most popular plugins like WooCommerce, WPML, Yoast SEO, All in One WP Migration, W3 Total Cache and many others.
This WordPress Theme comes with exclusive The7 Elements plugin that further enhances and extends Visual Composer capabilities. It adds dedicated post types, page templates and VC shortcodes/elements for Portfolio, Photo and Video Albums, Testimonials, Team and many others!
Regarding shortcodes theme has visual composer integrated, this means that in case you change the theme, you might need to acquire another theme with visual composer integrated, or buy it yourself in order to maintain site readability, otherwise, you will face a shortcode hell.
The7 has a nice performance on Google PageSpeed but it is not the fastest, especially on the mobile version.
Still to be mention that this WordPress theme doesn’t come with any forums integration and only have 3 blog styles which are cons compared with other themes.
Still missing some integrations and features such as live search, TablePress integration, Typekit besides the forums already mentioned before.
Overall, it is a nice theme for a low price including a nice bundle of premium plugins, but if Dream-Team wants to keep The7 on top or rank #1 they will definitely need to make some improvements and incorporate new features and integrations.
