There is a template for WordPress called Thesis which is a remarkably good template. I was running a WordPress blog for a while, and as every blogger knows, you can really get bogged down trying to customize your site. While I’ve never used Thesis, a friend of mine was recently showing me all the features on his version, and I was pretty impressed.
The best thing about Thesis is that you can change so many settings with the click of a button to get the look that you want on your blog. You can easily switch between 2 or 3 columns, which is good if you sometimes post videos to your blog and need a little extra room.
There are a lot of free WordPress templates out there, but these can be tough to customize. Lately I have been learning a lot of HTML coding techniques, so I have been trying to get away from templates. Of course, I’m a bit of a geek, so I realize that HTML isn’t for everyone.
So that is the good about Thesis. What about the bad? The bad is undoubtedly the price. This is one of the most expensive templates I have ever seen! The “Personal Version” is $87, and the “Developer’s Version” is $164. The Personal Version only allows you to use it on one site, whereas the Developer’s version allows you to use it on unlimited sites. Since I create a lot of websites, I would definitely go for the unlimited version, which means $164!
As I said, personally I have been getting away from templates. However, this template is one of the best that I’ve seen. If you’ve got a lot of cash to spare, don’t know anything about HTML, and want a great looking blog, you might want to check out the Thesis theme for WordPress.
