    I always worry about getting locked down into the theme's features when choosing drag-and-drop options. I feel like you end up with less control over things like SEO, minification of assets, building custom admin fields (via advanced custom fields / other) to make the client's life easier when updating.

    How do you all feel about drag-and-drop wordpress themes in general? I'm not knocking their value -- clearly they can make a great website -- I just tend to prefer developing custom themes for clients

      I never tried Semplice and I'm sure it depends on what you're trying to achieve, but my clients are always happier with a custom theme with clean custom drag-and-drop elements (usually with Unyson or Visual Composer). It never gave me any issues with SEO, minification, or custom fields.

      That being said, I tried Divi once and quickly realized you can't achieve as much with an out-of-the-box drag-and-drop theme. However if you can't code your own custom theme, Semplice looks promising.
