We test our plugins regularly against the latest WordPress themes, and aim to support as many themes as possible. However, given the size and scope of the theme marketplace, it's not possible to guarantee compatibility with all themes.
We regularly test all our plugins with the following themes and guarantee their compatibility wherever possible. These themes have been chosen based on their overall popularity in 2022 - both with Barn2 customers, and more widely.
Storefront - #1 recommendation
Storefront is the official theme at WooCommerce.com and is the theme which we use on all our plugin demo sites. It's our #1 recommendation because it is well coded, lightweight, and has the features you need with no unnecessary complexity. As a result, you will find it very easy to use. It's an excellent foundation for building a reliable website which will easy for you to maintain.
If the default Storefront theme isn't the right look for your website, then you can easily change the design by installing one of the huge range of Storefront child themes. Here's a video from the makers of Storefront:
While Storefront is aimed at e-commerce sites running WooCommerce, it's also ideal for any other type of WordPress site. For example, you can see it in use on our Document Library Pro plugin demo.
