There are a lot of free themes available for WordPress, but many of them look plain and lack features. Not to mention they have been used millions of times by people from all over the world. That’s why I prefer to use premium themes. Not only do they look better but they also have been used a lot less times.
One of my all-time favorite themes is the Revolution Church theme, which can be seen here . It’s a magazine style theme that uses the Featured Content plugin to show off some of your featured posts. Here is a screenshot of what the theme looks like by default:
As you can see, the theme has a very professional look. It also used a magazine style layout which makes it really easy to keep your content organized between sections. If you are not looking to use the magazine layout, you can use this theme with a typical blog front page. This will list all of your posts in order just like a typical theme.
Besides the Featured Content plugin, this theme also has some easy to use functions. The theme has its own theme options page where you can set different things such as:
- Banner Ads – The theme simply allows you to enter in your code for your ads and it will automatically add them to the theme.
- Feedburner ID – Simply enter in your Feedburner ID and the newsletter form will automatically start working for your feed.
- Video Code – Using the Featured Video section is as easy as pasting in some video code. It works well with YouTube and other video sharing websites.
Another thing I really like about the Revolution Church Theme is the ability to customize it. If you have some knowledge of CSS, you can change the colors and layout as much as you would like. For an example of a modified theme, check out BlogHelp.org . As you can see, the colors are similiar but the whole layout has been modified.
The Revolution Church Theme costs $59.99, which is a great price for a premium theme. You can also buy the full package for $199.99 and that includes all of the Revolution Themes. Very useful if you plan on making more than one blog.
