These days, more than a handful of WordPress themes claim to be multi-purpose. After all, what’s stopping you from creating whatever website with whatever theme, right?
But the devil is in the details… And while most themes are – technically – multi-purpose indeed, only a few are truly optimized to really serve site owners in multiple niches and deliver truly impressive results.
So this is where the Jupiter theme by Artbees Themes comes into play. The thing it promises is quite bold, actually … “world’s fastest yet most customizable theme ever”
Let’s test that out today! Here’s our review of the Jupiter theme. Tune in to find out what the theme has to offer, how quality its individual elements are, and how multi-purpose it really is.
What Jupiter is
Jupiter is a premium WordPress theme, available through the ThemeForest marketplace. It prides itself on being the smarter, faster, and more powerful theme than just about anything else out there.
The current version – 5.4 – stands out in two distinct ways:
- Ultimate customizability. I don’t tend to say this lightly about themes, but this one really seems to be able to offer a wide range of optimized and quality-made designs. Plus, you can customize everything in a number of ways (more on that in a minute)
- Focus on performance. Jupiter is reported to be getting scores upwards of 90%+ on GTmetrix and 95+ out of 100 in Google PageSpeed Insights (mobile + desktop).
That last thing is particularly impressive for a big builder theme like this. Many themes that you could call similar to Jupiter often suffer from unoptimized codebases, which is a result of constant feature adding and not much focus on refining those features later on.
Design options and customizations available in Jupiter
In a sentence, Jupiter offers an awful lot in the design customizability department.
- For starters, you can choose a template you like from the Artbees Themes template repository and have it imported into Jupiter with a couple of clicks. There are 120 of those templates available (all responsive and Retina-ready), so you are sure to find something interesting for every niche (business, education, agency, art, fitness, apps, real estate, just to name a few).
- Apart from the templates, you can also expand the theme’s functionality through the many third-party add-ons available via the Artbees website.
- And if that’s not enough, Jupiter also gives you access to a drag-and-drop layout builder, background customizer, and other design options.
When you put all of that together, it creates a pretty comprehensive picture. Basically, with some time investment, you can turn your Jupiter theme into any type of design for any niche.
This is basically what the theme’s 50,000-strong user base has done. Among Jupiter’s more noteworthy customers you’ll find the legendary American Football player Brandon Marshall, Colossal Media and Numerify. Plus, Artbees Themes reports that more than 17% of Jupiter buyers come back to buy again.
Going back to those templates, though…
The funny thing about many multi-purpose themes is that the templates they offer tend to sometimes be an afterthought – not very functional, not pretty, just added to make the product feel somewhat complete (for marketing purposes).
Well, it seems that Jupiter is not that theme.
Once you go to the templates page, for example, you’ll quickly realize how cool those things actually are.
Another cool feature that you might enjoy is the native parallax support that renders via GPU, hence keeping the pages nice and fast. You just don’t hear about things like that every day.
Plus, there’s way way more features in it. Instead of me talking, if you need more info, you can see a quick demo over here.
Who Jupiter is for
Jupiter seems like a good solution for both end users and website developers working on client sites.
- On the one hand, if you’re starting out, you can use one of Jupiter’s many templates and demos, just to set up your site quickly and not get your hands dirty in the settings for too long. In other words, just treat it like a catalog with your perfect site design in it.
- On the other hand, developers will find its drag-and-drop and customization features really handy when working on custom projects for clients. At the end of the day, Jupiter is sure to handle probably any client request possible.

Jupiter looks awesome! I’m amazed that is can offer this more versatility, yet be that fast. There’s themes that offer 1/3rd of the abilities that are super bogged down. Hats off to Artbees!
Stacy Dec 20, 2016, 5:25 pm
I’d love to win the Juniper template for the article design and much more.
Kenny Dec 20, 2016, 5:29 pm
I use WordPress for most of my sites and love trying out new themes. Jupiter seems like a great theme and I’d love to test it on some of my sites!
Datasky Dec 20, 2016, 5:45 pm
Cool… i must try Jupiter.
Nils Dec 20, 2016, 5:51 pm
Nice review Karol!
And I’m glad that you mentioned the discount, because I want to test the theme since I first discovered it on Themeforest. But without an actual project I hesitated to pay 60$. But for 30$ with lifetime updates I will take my chance.
Till now I mostly use the Divi theme. I wonder if you can say something about the Jupiter theme compared to the Divi theme?
Septian Ahmad Dec 20, 2016, 6:16 pm
Jupiter is a great WordPress theme. i loved it so much. wish to have one. count me in :)
Russel Dec 20, 2016, 7:14 pm
Looks pretty good – how does it compare to Enfold?
Lix Dec 20, 2016, 7:47 pm
I love how much choice there is for portfolio themes. I’ve been struggling to get my photography port up because I’m a designer but not a developer, and I find most portfolio themes are either too complicated or too simple. But I’m seeing Herse and Dipitr and Cyllene among others and thinking- that could make my goal of getting a damn port up asap so much easier.

Jupiter Theme seems very professional and elegant, Google is very serious about website speed and performance. It seems artbees is taking WordPress performance to next level 95+ Google PageSpeed is incredible, A big thumbs up for artbees.
100+ pixel perfect templates to choose from :) I must say all look pretty beautiful.
Kim Dec 20, 2016, 8:30 pm

Interesting to try a theme like this. Good luck to all.
Eusebiu Dec 21, 2016, 12:24 am
Perfect theme :D
Ara Dec 21, 2016, 1:06 am
The thing I love the most about Jupiter is its drag-and-drop layout builder. This saves so much time, which is always a winner in my book! As for features that I would like to see in the future, I can’t think of anything right now as it seems that it already has everything covered, even e-commerce! Perfection is an understatement :)
Phil Dec 21, 2016, 1:38 am
This looks like something I would love to try out.
Bryan Dec 21, 2016, 2:44 am
With having tons of features and unique set of UI elements, this could be your one stop theme for every client project.
fareez Dec 21, 2016, 4:38 am
I always look forward to try Jupiter, but now hoping of this chance to use the Jupiter theme.

Sound interesting for its flexibility yet fast
Bernardo Kuri Dec 21, 2016, 12:08 pm
Thanks for the great review. This sure looks to be one of the more capable themes out there.
I wonder how Jupiter compares with Thesis or Layers? They both offer similar features, although I believe they’re also more expensive.
Félix Desjardins Dec 21, 2016, 3:12 pm
The admin interface is something new, but awesome. I don’t know what to ask more!
Rob G Dec 21, 2016, 10:04 pm
First and foremost, I like the availability of 120+ templates, which are great starting points for building some awesome websites. Also, like the fact that Jupiter WP theme is designed for speed.
WildCrow Dec 23, 2016, 5:43 am
What i liked the most are the template options, sooo many. Thanks in advance.

I love Jupiter WP Theme! One of the best.
Marc Dec 27, 2016, 6:08 pm
The review sounds fantastic, if the theme lives up to its reputation I am definitely a fan!
Conrad Dec 27, 2016, 7:12 pm
I would love to try out the Jupiter Theme!
Till now I used the Divi Theme and there is a website in german language.
Because my english is weak, do you know, if there is a german website about the Jupiter theme, too?
Brian McEnrue Dec 27, 2016, 10:39 pm
Looks fantastic. Considering buying the theme if I don’t win.
Phil Dec 28, 2016, 1:29 am
Thanks for the giveaway! I did a bit of research on this theme and it looks pretty amazing.
fareez Dec 28, 2016, 4:29 am
Jupiter themes are awesome to me. The layout, the functionality and the theme meet what I need there.
Hopefully, I would get a chance to use this theme in the future.
Valentin Dec 28, 2016, 10:35 am

Dionizio Dec 28, 2016, 7:43 pm
