If you’re looking to set up a blog for yourself or your company, consider any of these blog WordPress themes. If your plans call for an eCommerce site instead, Magento is the way to go.
Both WordPress and Magento are customizable as they are out of the box, but if you want to fast-track your development process or you don’t have the required resources or expertise to set them up the way you want them to be, ready-made themes are the answer. This is true, regardless of whether you’re a rookie or an expert user.
When choosing a WordPress theme to use for your blog or your website, how customizable the theme should rank high on your selection criteria, particularly if you’re looking to differentiate your website from the rest of the pack. The same thing can be said if you’re looking to set up an eCommerce site using Magento theme.
For both WordPress and Magento, you can gauge how customizable a theme is by asking how well they stacked up to the following questions:
- Are header styles customizable? What about blog styles (for WordPress only)?
- Does it have extra skins? Can accent colors be changed?
- Does it allow you to view your changes as they would appear on the website?
- Does it allow you to create complex page layouts? If yes, how easy is the process?
- Can it handle different typography? What about icons?
- Does it come with the most popular plugins and widgets out of the box?
- Does it offer PSD files that you can use for your project?
Once you’ve narrowed down your search for a highly-customizable theme using the above parameters, you should look at the popularity of the themes on your short list next. How many times has the theme been downloaded? Are the ratings good? If a theme is popular, chances of it being able to meet your requirements are excellent as well.
Of course, you actually have to try it out to see if it fulfills your needs. That’s what the 14-day, money back guarantee that TemplateMonster offers on all its templates is for.
