    I have the Thesis theme and I’m really enjoying it. However, users should be aware that they *might* have to do some (simple) CSS coding for simple tasks such as adding a background-header to your site. The Thesis forum has several threads from users “complaining” that they actually have to do more coding than that they salespitch seems to claim.

    However – the new version 1.6 beta eliminates some of the need for doing your own coding, so I’m sure it will get better in the future. But even with that said, it’s so easy to find tutorials, tips & tricks and there’s a really helpful support forum also.

      Your are right to get the best from the Thesis theme, there is a lot of coding required. It’s a great theme but if you are not that technical, I would advise you either buy it and outsource the technical bits or buy a more user-friendly theme like Flexx.

    From my own professional design standpoint – How do you determine a great theme?

    1. Theme support (a biggie)

    2. Theme design is easy to modify (headers, logos, and other graphical elements should be easy to add/install)

    3. Theme code is readily accessible (no hidden costs or hoops to jump through)

      Hey Doug,

      Thanks for dropping by!

      You are so right, the support is the biggie for me as well. If you get stuck you want help straight away, don’t you?

      I know the support for Flexx and Thesis is excellent.

    I don’t know much about premium themes, so this will be really useful to me in the upcoming weeks when I’ll be starting two blogs.

    Thanks for the post.

      I hope they make a difference and good luck in your new bloggging journeys.

    I finally got the Thesis theme for my site and so far it’s been an enjoyable experience. The only trouble is trying to find the help for the tweaks I want to do. I have even inquired of a couple Thesis designers to help me, whom I would end up having to pay for their services.

      I know of a great Thesis expert – let me know if you are interested.

    Thesis Rocks, of course! I am so happy I made the switch back in August, even though I am relatively new to blogging. I was using Thematic before that (a free theme). I know Thesis, as mentioned by another commenter, does require that you still do some coding, but the forum is amazing. The support from the staff is incredible and nearly instantaneous. Well worth it and I’d put it as # 1 :)!

    • Andrew Rondeau October 30, 2009 at 12:34 am #


      Thanks for giving your opinion – nice to hear from someone who has used Thesis. I have a great techie friend who loves it.

    I like WP-Ellie. This is a stylish magazine style premium WordPress theme. The theme includes multiple options for homepage layouts. Hence, it can be used as a magazine site, business, or even a personal blog style site.

    I’m disappointed that you didn’t listed Magazine3, I’m using them for my blogs & for clients. Customer support team is great.

    Hi Andrew, I’m looking for a new theme and I’m prepared to buy a premium theme, but less than $100.

    I wonder if there is any reason why you don’t recommend Genesis framework + Theme – I think you have to buy both but the price is similar to others.

    Flexibility, color choices and good support are essential because I’m currently only at the check box level of ‘add or don’t add’, and color picker stage.

    I’ve come to the conclusion that Genesis is more likely to be ‘my level’ of CSS knowledge, than Thesis.

    But now I see that you don’t include Genesis in your recommendations. Is there a reason, and do you agree that I should go for Genesis over Thesis?

  9. Andrew November 6, 2012 at 5:32 am #


    At the time of writing this post, I had not used Genesis.

    If I were to update the post, I would certainly include Genesis, WooThemes and Headway.

    And…genesis would be better for you than Thesis based upon your comment.
