WordPress Themes

Working with WordPress since 2007 as a pro, my advice: pick a theme that you can work on the backend too!

If you want widgets only on certain pages, or a different header for each page, truse a theme that has a WordPress Frameworks on the backend. A pretty theme may not be easy to do things and customize.

Here’s the best themes for this:

StudioPress Genesis:

(Skill level: Easy) The easiest frameworks to use, also quite powerful, less frequent updates of themes, however more than 30 to pick from already. Real Estate and Business templates especially good and easy to use.


(Skill level: Developer) All kinds of modern themes and a WordPress Ecommerce capability.


(Skill level: Expert) Super powerful but only if you are willing to learn how to use “Gantry Frameworks”.

Elegant Themes:

(Skill level: Developer) Responsive website templates, uses a proprietary”epanel” for Elegant Themes specific settings, which sometimes overlap with WordPress features like Logo which may not stick after an upload. Ajax “Filterable Portfolio” template pages are captivating but don’t use a template page, and must be edited in a special functions file.
