    Hi all,

    I am a beginning WP User. I SEE SO MANY different themes and companies producing themes that i don't know where to begin.

    The following companies all sell themes.


    • Themeforest
    • Woothemes
    • Genisis
    • flexsqueeze
    • Optimize Press


    Is there one good Theme Company to start with...that will satisfy most needs?

    I am looking to build
    • Landing Pages
    • some websites for my friends (in business), and
    • small businesses in my neighborhood.

    Which Company or Theme would be Best for my needs?

    I've used Elegant themes in the past. Think its $39 for access to about 50 themes. Some of them look great but Ive outgrown them and have found some other themes that are more customizable. Have a look through the archive http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/f111-templates-themes/

    Thats the adaptability of wordpress...install a theme play with it , if you dont like it install another.

    I suggest themeforest. They a lot of high quality WP themes.

    Been using WP for many years, there will never be a WP theme developer that's gonna met all the things
    that you need in a WP theme. You will have to look around, test drive themes before buying etc.

    they are all good , depending of your needs ... good thing is -> many of that themes aer shared here on BHW so you are able to try them at NO COST (if you like them buy them to support developer)
    -> when you search for them on offical sites you have "live demo" to see theme in action

    also a tip when searching BHW
    lets say you are surfing themeforest offical site and you like Longpage theme
    go to google and type in search bar
    Code:
    site:blackhatworld.com Longpage
    and thats it just download and try it

    hope it helps
    Ivan

    Hey thanks Guys!

    I have a FlexSqueeze Theme....and its very cool. BUT i have little to NO INSTRUCTIONS on how to make changes to it (sigh).

    They do have a membership for 3 mths that provides vids on learning the (their) Themes.
