I recently installed Thesis a paid WordPress theme by well known WordPress theme designer Chris Pearson of Pearsonified. Chris has created the several WordPress themes such as the popular Copyblogger, Neoclassical, Cutline and Press Row.
Unlike most standard WordPress themes it’s SEO’d properly, i.e., H1 tags default for posts titles which WordPress should use as default but they don’t.
The default settings are excellent, typography and layout is amazing and you can customize it very easily. They have control panels in the design section of WordPress that I really wished my previous theme Northern Web Coders had, would have saved me days of messing around trying to customize things. They have an active forum for support and an actual detailed online manual for the theme vs 1 or 2 screens of information most WordPress Themes have.
I’ll do a detailed review later, I’m still in the midst of tweaking things. Still on my to do list are the navigation bar buttons at the top, possibly a header graphic but possibly not, and a better RSS layout.
You can check out the Thesis theme here (aff).
I’ve also added a section for ADHD related gadgets and books from Amazon.com on the left sidebar that some of you might be interested in. I get a small cut on any purchases you make on Amazon’s website if you click through any of the links.
So please tell me what you like/don’t like/would change/ is missing from my new blog design.
