    Hi Friends,

    Need your Opinion.

    I'm struggling with "Selecting" a Word Press theme...and wanted to know "what is the most flexible Word Press theme?

    I found the following

    • U-Design (themeforrest)
    • Canvass (woo-themes)
    • Studiopress (genesis)
    • Thesis (DYI)

    I'm fairly new to wordpress but have done a few themes from Theme-forrest, custom Child Theme, etc. I'm not a beginner BUT have only put up a few sites.

    I would like to be able to do a numerous sites without "re-learning the wheel."

    Which in your opinion would be Best?

    I like the U-Design Theme...but not sure if this is best for my needs. Also, Studio and thesis---seem like a steep learning curve.

    What's your Opinion?

    thanks !

    By flexible you mean 1 theme for every website? Haven't really use Udesign since I make my own theme :p but I think you can learn how to push the theme further for every website that you build and stick to it..

    Udesign seems to be pretty popular (for some reason). They claim to be the highest theme sold. I wonder why?

    Mandigo is awesome, but no longer supported. I have an old copy on hand somewhere.

    Currently, I'm using Parabola. The same company makes one called Mantra that is pretty much the same.

    I also tried one called Childishly Simple that was actually ridiculously complicated (albeit highly customizeable). Loads of options, and a name that defies logic.
