Some of you probably noticed that my website has a new design, although it’s still in a migration process to the new design and layout. Although most parts are still under construction I really excited by this new layout, and I hope you like it as much as I do.
At the time I used Joomla as a Content Management System, I bought the blue PixelPerfect theme developed by RocketTheme. And yes a nice looking and well developed theme / template provides your website with a new refreshing and often more professional look.
With the switch to wordpress I directly started to search for a nice template and fund the blue Revolution Theme (freeware) and developed by Brain Gardner. Directly the difference could be seen, although it was a free template. However there were some problems with using widgets in your sidebars, resulting in dissapearing icons.
After more than 0.5 year of using WordPress, and the choice to stick with this CMS, the next step was to search for a professional template. At first I wanted to continue with the blue Revolution theme, but I wanted something different. Brain Gardner and his team have developed a few new templates, but since I’m not an expert in coding it needed to be ok out of the box.
I chose the WooThemes Live Wire theme, and I’m very excited about the new look. The template consists of 9 different pre-defined styles, and a large amount of configurable options. At this time I’m exploring those options, and thinking of the things I would like to see different. If you have additions, comments or see some design mistakes, please let me know !!
Finally special thanks to Mike Temporale, fellow Mobian, MVP Mobile Devices and the founder of Mobile Jaw, for his great tips & tricks, and great troubleshooting when first installing the new template !!
