Wordpress Templates - Any good ones?

28 replies
Hi,

Could anybody recommend a good Wordpress template, mainly for an Autoblog that fits the following criteria.

1) Free!
2) Looks nice\professional
3) Easy to integrate adsense, affiliate links etc.

I've been using this one, 'Atahualpa Theme' which is o.k.

Anybody got a better one?

Thanks in advance.

    I really think Atuh. has more that your giving it credit for. I have set up several and none look similar.

    You can customize it to the hilt.

    Are you looking for magazine looks... here is a good looking one and recommendation in from Jon Bard here in the WF - Bradford Magazine- I can't find Jon's WF name, so Jon, sorry I can't direct him to you.

    Auto Blogging as in, loading content to release on a given time or something else?

      I'm really looking for a standard blog format, perhaps 3 column with a clean professional look.

      The majority of the posts will be Autoblogged from RSS feeds and will be short excerpts with a link to the main article.

      My other option is to experiment with tweaking the Atahualpa theme I suppose.

        I think your on a good path, It is one of the best rated free Themes, Atuh.

        You can plug-in some rss, plug-in rotating aff. link ads and adsense, block it on some pages.. blah blah.

        Atuh, has more variables than I knew. One thing I did was set up a "Test" WP-Atuh, site... That is where I played with all the options, with 3 column on the blog page and 2 column on the static pages for aff marketing.

        Are you running a Test site?

      I really liked the magazine style that you linked to. Where can I download it? Did you say it was a premium?

      I use the 'freshy' theme on my blog.

      I think it's very neat and tidy, and if you download the customize plug-in (which goes with the theme), you'll find there are a number of custom made designs to fiddle about with, plus some other options, such as switching the sidebar around or turning on/off the date/author name on the posts.

      I haven't checked out all the different styles, but one is called 'vitamin', which may be good for a health blog.

    Check out skinpress dot com they have some nice templates. Also wordpress.org/extend has some nice free themes as well. If you are look for premium I would go with either studiopress or woo themes.

    I HIGHLY recommend Amy Bass' Super Adsense Themes. You can get 30 themes for $5 - Adsense is already integrated into the themes. They're basically all the same theme in layout just with different color combinations. I use them for all my niche blogs and LOVE them. Very easy to use. Not affiliated, just happy with them!

    I really like the Semiologic theme. There is a paid version of this theme, but the free one is the one I use. Multiple layouts / skins available.

    WP P2 is about the most awesome gadget I've seen in awhile. A lot of functions and I believe that most themes work with it.
