    What is the best wordpress theme for a completely customizable CMS layout?

    I'm talkin about themes similar to:
    wpremix.com
    ithemes.com
    studiopress.com

    I've seen studio and ithemes on BHW and have played around with them a little bit. Although it seems like neither suite really offers any ease of use with the newest version of wordpress.

    Anyone have any thoughts on what the top 5 or so most customizable themes are?

    no such thing as best. find one that suits your needs and modify it to your liking. ive used premium themes for totally different niches than theyre designed for. mmost of the premium themes ive used work up to the latest

    Have you checked out Vibrant CMS? It is one of the cool Wordpress CMS themes I personally like!

    Try Flexibilty 2 which is free and very easy to cusomise. I use it on a few autoblogs and it works very well.

    Don't forget to check out Artisteer. The download should be available here.

    I'm going to give this one a shot tomorrow. I tried v1.0 and was impressed with the interface, but didn't have enough time to really play around with it.

    From what I've read, the difference between 1.0 and 1.5 was huge, so I'm assuming 1.6 is even better?

    My vote is for Flex2 for most intents and purposes. It probably has the best all around use of many of the more well known themes out there. Great for autoblogs.

    I played around with this headway 1.6 theme a little on one of my new sites and looks to work. It must be the developers one since you can remove the footer.
