Themes that are Totally WordPress Compatible
"Other themes that WordPress feels are totally compatible with that blogging platform"
In past articles, Linda mentioned that she uses the Hybrid Theme for WordPress. In this article, she points to other themes that WordPress feels are totally compatible with that blogging platform.
Why is Theme Hybrid Not Listed in WordPress Codex?
Hi folks...over the past few months, I have raved about using the Hybrid Theme for WordPress (WP). But, in travelling to the WordPress Codex page for adaptable themes, you may see that Hybrid is not listed in their Theme Compatibility list. Why?
First, Hybrid is not easy to use for the person who is new to blogging. That said, using Hybrid can teach a blogger a lot about how to handle various aspects within Wordpress. But, if you are entering blogging to make money, to create a site for resale or for various other reasons, then other templates might make more sense for you.
In this article, I'll cover some of the themes listed at that Codex page to help you narrow down your search for a theme for you that is both easy to use and that is flexible. In the lists below, you'll learn about various options. Each link in the list will contain a site that uses that specific theme so you can get a better look at how that theme might work for you. Each image contains a link to that site so you can get a closer look.
Also, please note that I've only included those themes which seem active, which are easy to understand and use, and which have updates to their themes and support (sometimes you might pay for this support). Also, I had a few issues with theme sites that didn't work in FireFox (or, perhaps, that don't work in any browser). Those sites were excluded as well, so you have a choice of current themes that seem reliable listed below. Themes are broken down into four categories including those that push the SEO option, themes that are simple to use but that have one visual and no options, themes that can be altered easily through CSS or by creating child themes, and other options.
Linda Goin carries a B.F.A. in visual communications with a minor in business and marketing, and an M.A. in American History with a minor in the Reformation. While the latter degree doesn't seem to fit with the first two educational experiences, Linda used her 25-year design expertise on site at archaeological digs and in the study of material culture. Now she uses her education and experiences in creating social media environments.
Accolades for her work include fifteen first-place Colorado Press Association awards, numerous fine art and graphic design awards, and interviews about content development with The Wall St. Journal, Chicago Tribune, Psychology Today, and L.A. Times.
