-Thesis for WordPress-
The Thesis Theme for WordPress was launched a few years ago by Chris Pearson and it pretty much rose to fame immediately.
As anyone who has tried will know building a website is not an easy task to say the least. Although customizing Thesis is not easy, there are certain aspects of the theme that are very simple to understand and make quick edits, thanks to Chris Pearsons sense of design asthetics.
As themes go Thesis is not cheap at $87 for the single user licence and $164 for the developers licence especially when you consider the amount of free or cheap themes available for wordpress, so what makes it worth the hype and the price tag?
Strait out of the box it has a very sleek minimalist design, with easy site and design option, you can create from 1 to 3 column layouts with the choice of sidebar on the left or right at the click of a button. You can change the font types, sizes and colours for the header area, the post headlines and sidebar headlines as well as post content text. Resizing the content area and sidebar area is also accomplished the a few clicks of the mouse. Uploading a graphic logo is as easy as drag and drop into the header image section. Just these features alone give you an enormous amount of design flexibility.
