Which Wordpress theme do you use?

by 66 comments
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

    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:

    Semiologic, customized

    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.

    I'm also a semi logic user.

    can I see some examples of the semi logic?

    I use studiopress themes...like them so far...

    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 like & use all of the Revolution themes. Studiopress now?

    I recently purchased Flex squeeze which allows me to put a squeezepage as the main page of my blog and it has some cool features too, some of which I haven't implemented yet.

    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.

    As far as free themes, I like the i2(mango) theme, inove, and semilogic.

    I've used Dateless Sniper, which is free on a few sites and I'm currently using Thesis on my newest website.

    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.

    Cheers

    Semiologic Pro is a good choice for general use. I recently did some research on themes for video sites and settled on The On Demand WordPress Theme|Press75.com

    I use the flexsqueeze theme which is around $80 I think.

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

    Talk soon,

    I've used a few different WP themes.

    The newest theme I'm trying is BlueSense to see if Adsense conversion is any higher.

    Thesis, Flexsqueeze.

    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.

    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.
