Default Which Wordpress theme do you use?

I search themes all the time but I thought it would be useful just to see what themes other Warriors are using, and whether they're free or premium. So I'll go first:

Cutline-1-1.4-2ColumnRight, free theme

Default Re: Which Wordpress theme do you use?

I use several different themes - I don't find that one theme fits all.

I use Chris Pearson's Cutline themes, as well as the following:

Affiliate Nuts (free)
Wordpress Commerce (free sample theme)

I also use several of the two and three column themes that I am giving away free at:

WP_009 I love this theme. It is totally customizable. And search engine friendly. Has great built in ad spaces and is adsense ready. It takes a bit of fiddling but once you know where everything is; it's a doddle.

Usually I download a good looking free theme and tweak it
a little to make it look the way I like.

I like to do this because, it saves me money and I always
improve my PHP skills while doing it (it's always nice to learn
new stuff).

I use Thesis and have used and sometimes still do use the old revolution themes.

The best part about the Thesis theme is how easy it is to set up the main parts of your blog like the navigation bar and the layout.

It seems to be the future of themes and there are other themes which do the same.

Unless you are outsourcing the customization of your blog having the customizing options in your control panel is the way to go.

My blog WhoIsJeffMitchell.Com is the "Live Wire" theme from WooThemes. I paid to have it altered to my specs with a programmer here at Warrior.

His name is Robert Dickson from Porcupine Website Design, and he did a great job. I highly suggest if you find a blog that is close to what you want....he can make it what you want.

Hope that helps.

Agree with this, I like FlexSqueeze too, especially for the squeeze pages you can use.

I also love all The Studio Press Themes and use them often.

The one in my signature is an iThemes premium theme called "Charlie" and I really like the way it looks.

You can get the flexibility theme for free, it just has a few less features, but is basically the same.

I use BLUESENSE which is optimize for adsense. It looks max pro and takes care of my ad blocks. There are many very XLent themes out there. BLUE SENSE is blue, but I believe the best themes are combinations of red and white, much like this forum.

Default Re: Which Wordpress theme do you use?

I've just started a few new blogs, a half a dozen or so, using Cutline (3 column R/L) and do a quick edit on some images to replace the default headers. I like it a lot though that image is rather large and pushes your content to the 'break' fairly fast.

Tip: when creating replacement header images for Cutline. Use the same image as the starting point, reverse it, slice a different piece or angle of it, or take a large image and slice it 5 times to create your 5 different images.

I mostly use WP default. Yep. But...

I customize a kubrickheader.jpg (sometimes footer and other images as well) for the niche, and use a different color background (usually just a small mostly solid colored square sliced from the edited header I created) to customize it. It really cuts down on compatibility problems with older themes and new WP versions.

A hint/trick though if you use the Default theme, it is overwritten if you do autoupdate - to keep from losing your tweaks when updating WP is to rename the default theme folder something lke 'defaultme' so it is not automatically overwritten during updates. Be sure to change themes before you change that folder name. Then just reactivate the theme.

I has to be the best theme out there and the SEO optins are great. I posted an article the other week, not really keywords driven, I found myself on page 1 of Google yesterday

DavidFrosdick.com ? Life, Business, Web Development, Internet Marketing, Training

It does take a little coding if you want to customise Thesis but the standard layout is also excellent!!

Thesis. It's not free but so far, any WP update has not caused problems. When using free themes, I had to not only manage the plug-ins but also the updates and all to common problems caused by those updates.

Thesis allows me the SEO benefits without having to worry about long term managing the details..... so far! I work on the site content and business marketing and less on the technology

I like the themehybrid theme myself. It is free, but absolutely on par with the much more expensive premium themes out there. That said, I wouldn't use the word "easy" myself, when it comes to customizing it. Themehybrid offers lots of functionality (which interests me most), but changing colors, header, etc does involve playing with .css code. If someone wants to dive into learning to customize a theme, developer Justin Tadlock's support ($25 per year) is tops.

I usually just start from scratch and make my own. Lately I have been making my themes look like static sites. That way you still have the ease of use, plugins, etc. but they don't look like blogs. the kayak canoe site in my sig is an example of that kind of theme.

Thesis ($87 for individual but I have the developer edition) and iNove (free) depending on the application.

Depends on the size of the site you are wanting to build.
If its a simple site - less than 50 pages - I'll use Wordpress

If its a complex site with varied side bars and blocks and lots of pages, I'll use Joomla

As for the templates
I like Flexsqueeze - I've set that up for several clients - the developer has done a great job.
But lately I've been building my own themes depending on the functions needed for the site.
Example - The templates I build for John's (Xfactor) Micro Niche Site program are light weight and have very specific qualities to maximize the click through rate according to his course specs.

Also if I am using Joomla and Wordpress on the same domain I'll build matching templates so it looks seamless to the visitor.

It all depends on what the goal of the website is on what template I use.

Actually I can't unless you own the course.
Obviously the template is a major component of the course. John just happens to use xsitepro to create his micro niche sites. I created these templates for Wordpress.

If you own the course, PM me the 1st paragraph under "Where To Get Your Article Marketing Content:" on page 70
Then I'll send you to the page that has my templates for the micro niche sites.
