Are There Any Good Wordpress Themes?

The question is, are there any good WordPress themes. The answer is yes. I have tried a ton of themes in my stint as an Internet Marketer and when I first started one of the most frustrating things I had to deal with was getting a site half built just to find out that the theme could not do something I wanted it to do.

I would try for hours on end to rewrite the CSS Style Sheets to gain the function I needed but writing code is not exactly my strong suit especially back when I was just learning the basics. I would finally give up and go searching for a new theme, rebuild everything and get so far and realize that tho the new theme did what the last one would not it fell short in another area.

Finally a friend of mine and I were talking about this and he told me about a theme called Flexibility 3. I took a look at his site built on the theme and decided it looked good and with him telling me it was very versatile as the name suggest I went ahead and tried it.

I found that the theme really does live up to it's name. You can customize just about everything from the header width and height to the over all blog width as well as the size of the sidebar. That's just naming a few of the things, you can also customize all of the colors and fonts and even the mouse over colors on the navigation menu and drop down menus.

I wont go into everything you can customize with the theme because it would take to long but let it suffice to say that it is the only free theme I have ever found that did everything I wanted it to do.

Oh did I mention this is a FREE theme? Well it just so happens that when I was first starting out I was determined not to spend any money that was not absolutely necessary and that included paying for a theme so yes this is a free theme indeed!

There may very well be others out there and if so I would love to hear about them in the comments below but this is the only one I have personally found thus far.

I liked the theme so much that I decided to do make a how to guide to help people learn how to use the it. It shows how to download and install it as well as most of the different functions and how to operate them.

I have also used the Thesis theme and I like it but I still make some of my sites on Flex 3 I like it that much!

I would love to hear your thoughts and opinions about this or any other free theme that you like below so leave me a comment and don't forget to share this with your friends.

Good article and thanks for the information. I'm going to check out flexibility 3 for myself but sounds like a really good theme.

I use Flexibility 3 as well, and think it's well worth paying for the link free version if you can. Another free theme that's also completely customizable is Atahualpa, but this one's not so easy to figure out. Of the two, Flexibility gets my vote.

Ty, its looks great! I didn't like the header original ads as they are not related to my site theme so I change it to Adsense then figure out what affiliate banners to put up later. For the footer, I left it there as a reminder I need to make or get a book for email marketing -).I am not to spend too much time beautifying it as it already looks good, so spending the time writing good content!

That's exactly where you should be spending your time. I'm glad you're liking it and i really appreciate the feed back. I am hoping to get a few more people to try it and leave their comments about. I am really trying to spread the word on the theme because i keep seeing so many people waste to much of their time looking for a good free theme. I spent forever looking for one myself so I know how it feels.

Ty, I have started on a new site with Flex 3, created is a simple site with Adsense advertisements and a few articles. You can see the site in my profile > dating websites guru as I am disallowed to put a link here. I will touch it up as I go along. Any comments welcomed.

Hello Ty, this theme sounds wonderful. Unfortunately, when I searched for themes, nothing came up under "flexibility" on self-hosted Wordpress site.

Visit the How To Guide link in the article above it will explain how to do all of that it's very easy and there are links to the themes site and everything it makes it very simple.
