    Hi,

    I'm making a new website and need a minimal page template. Something where it has a logo on the top, a row of table of contents and simple graphics, video and text within the page. Would love to have it good for SEO and page rank.

    Any recommendations?

    Thank You,

    Combo,

    Have you considered just modifying the default 2010 or 2012 theme? I have done this with a couple of wordrpess sites that didn't need anything fancy and it worked out just fine.

    Here are some tips to improving wordpress themes. Maybe you can apply some of them to a basic theme like 2010,

    Hope that helps,

    Hey Combo, like Content said the default themes are simple. Another theme is called Weaver II which which is like 2012 theme and has a lot of customizations built in (No coding, just select). It comes with quite a few skins and a simple one too. Free version is fine, I never upgraded to paid on sites I used it on.

    Simple is sometimes good, but don't be intimidated to work with fancier themes. You can only experience growth from outside your comfort zone.
