What's the best theme for Thirty Bees?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

Just found out Prestashop is releasing its final update for PS1.6

Looking to migrate over to TB but not sure what Theme to use?

We could use our outdated 2015 theme but open for suggestions on a new theme.

Can anyone make a suggestion of what theme(s) they're using?

Regards, Motion

Thank you dosbiner. I have to say I'm really disappointed with Prestashop 1.7 - now that there is no support for PS1.6 I'm looking to start pushing OpenCart and WooCommerce for all my new clients.

My PS1.6 client has spent over $1000 on PS1.6 modules and now has to decide whether to go with TB1.6 or totally abandon the platform

What theme would you recommend?

thirty bees would seem like the obvious choice. Have you looked at the panda theme? It is very versatile. https://www.sunnytoo.com/product/panda-creative-responsive-prestashop-theme

Transformer & panda are great and continue supporting. I use warehouse theme, but sadly there will be no new features or bug fixes in the future, they just continue on PS 1.7 version

I much prefer PS1.6 but it seems like all the PS Addons Developers are being forced onto PS1.7 - it's a sad state of affairs....I can see more a more store owners abandoning Prestashop now

IMHO, the theme should match the shop topic. A shop for motorcyclist spare parts needs a different theme than one for swimming suits or toddler toys.

It's understandable that one trusts a long term relationship. And that's why thirty bees exists. It allows to continue with this relationship, just under a different brand name. Like MySQL evolved into MariaDB, like OpenOffice evolved into LibreOffice.

I find that a lot of themes still work in TB. Sometimes, it needs a bit of tweaking, sometimes it will not install the usual way, but with a bit of legwork, you can get most of them to work.
