Can You Recommend A Similar WP Theme?

11 replies
Hey everyone,

I found a site, and I'd really like to model its design. This is not a Wordpress theme, but that is what I will be using.

I've been searching all the premium Wordpress themes from dozens of different sites, but I can't seem to find any that match. I was curious if anyone had any suggestions? Maybe you know of a theme that is somewhat similar?

Here is the site I'd like to model:

Home (Journey Church - Upper West)

Any Wordpress theme ideas?

Thanks everyone.
Derek

      Not particularly. Are you referring to the scrolling images? I know countless WP themes have this feature. I don't necessarily need Flash though.

      I'm just looking for a theme with a similar look and feel...

      - Nav at the top, next to a logo.
      - Similar color scheme
      - Scrolling images (preferably with the option to have a few images or icons to the right, as this website does)
      - And I really like the bottom of the site too

      That is very close! Thanks.

      And the free is a big plus too!

      The only thing is, I would like to have the scrolling images at the top be larger and have no text. I may have to experiment with the theme though and see if that is an easy fix.

      Thanks again,
      Derek

        No problem.

        The structure of both themes are pretty similar. I'm quite sure you could get it to look almost exactly like the site you linked to with minimal effort.

        You'd basically need to remove the slider script from the theme and simply replace it with the images you want in that location. The theme more than likely will make room for the size of the image w/ out extra coding. If not you can just specify the size you want and that should work.

        The only thing that may take a bit of work is if you must have the images in front of the dark background the way it is on the site you provided versus in front of the white background the way it is on the site I listed. Even that though, is quite easily fixed.

        Spend the money would would have spent purchasing a theme and have someone quickly edit the theme for a couple of bucks and you'll be good.

          I do.. keep in mind I'm not very good so the sites are just alright. You wouldn't know they are wordpress sites. They don't look like that site.. was more saying you could do that with Atahualpa. If you want, you can PM me and I'll send you sites I did for a few friends.

    I use atahualpa. If you have basic CSS skills and maybe dreamweaver, you can do anything. I have less than basic skills and could probably do mimic that site with Atahualpa.

      Do you have any samples of your work? Or is this just a hobby of yours?

    It look like all of the current flavor of the month themes at themeforest.

    Navigation
    Giant Slider
    Three Columns of info

    Themes with this layout are a dime a dozen at themeforest.

      I'm aware of all the template sites, ThemeForest included.

      If anyone else has any specific theme ideas, I'd love to hear them. Dime a dozen as they may be, I can't seem to find one that is close enough.

      Naturally I'm looking myself, but maybe someone here knows one straight away.

      Thanks,
      Derek
