The built-in pre-designed sites are designed to a very high standard to ensure that your site has broad appeal. The homepage layout contains a large number of elements, including large full-width images, local time, weather widgets, referral sliders and more, and of course you can display partner logos and embed video and photo sliders.

In addition to this, TheGov offers a lot of useful templates that help to allow you to quickly populate your site with useful content. The theme has event management support that allows you to post key events and important dates, a feature powered by the popular Events Manager plugin that ensures you set up your entire site in the right way.

2. CityGov

Offering 3 complete demo sites that are different enough to give you the right choice when deciding on the look of your website. In addition to the different design looks, these demos have slightly different uses. CityGov is suitable for creating websites for small towns, cities, non-profit organizations, and other government-related organizations.

Since CityGov is flexible in terms of functionality and appearance, you can easily set it up so that it works the way you need it to, without much effort. To help you design your site, the theme has been designed to work with the popular Elementor page editor, allowing you to open templates for editing through a simple drag-and-drop interface. To modify the navigation menu, site structure or content organization system, you can do so through the control panel.

CityGov supports the Give WP plugin, which helps allow you to raise funds for projects in different ways; you can also install the WPML plugin in order to translate your website into multiple languages; and finally, the Events Manager plugin compatibility allows you to announce upcoming events.

3. City Government

View Details

Although there are only two demo sites and home page layouts, you can configure them in many different ways. Whether you are creating a large portal for a government agency or launching a small website for a single organization, City Government can handle it.

In addition to choosing which pages from the demo are displayed on the site, you can also customize the page content using the included WPBakery Page Builder plugin. If you need to raise funds for a political party or other cause, you can use the included Donate plugin. The Donate module can display detailed information and status updates about the fundraising campaign to encourage more visitors to participate.

Another useful feature is the booking and management of appointments, an integrated tool that allows you to schedule appointments - perhaps for visitor visits, business negotiations, etc. - thus making the site more interactive. As part of City Government's core functionality, you can also post relevant events in order to keep track of meetings, debates, infrastructures and other occasions.

4. Pressville

View Details

If looking to create a local government or authority organization website, Pressville would be a great fit. A professional design look helps ensure that your website is truly attractive to your target audience. Depending on the type of website that will be built, you can choose from 3 different home page layouts and use them as a starting point to stretch further in a better direction.

The demo page layout is perfect for displaying a range of information and content, including the latest news, upcoming events, and links to the latest documents uploaded; the other two home page layouts have more of a single focus -- one is only for displaying upcoming events, and the other displays documents that readers can download. However, because Pressville is highly customizable, you can easily edit all of the pre-defined content using the bundled WPBakery Page Builder or the supported Elementor, and you'll be able to modify it the way you want, whether you're new to web design or not.

As mentioned before, this theme offers good support for publishing events and is also great for publishing documents online. Whether you want to share the latest news, upload public documents, or post important announcements, Pressville offers many templates available.
