Elegant Themes

An appropriate choice of subject matter for my first blog with a technical emphasis would be an examination of the platform on which the site is built:  WordPress and the Elegant Theme that enhances it.

WordPress is a great blogging platform, and it is arguably one of the most popular.

The basic themes that come with WordPress are sufficient to aid you in getting your message out there.  An enhanced, or “premium” theme, will help you get noticed.

The theme upon which this WordPress site is built was acquired in a package of themes by a company called “Elegant Themes”.

The particular theme that this site uses is called the “Polished Theme”.  The look is clean, uncluttered, and well…polished!

The theme is very flexible in terms of menus and layout options, and the slider is compact and unique.

The menu navigation has a smooth, professional operation when you hover above a menu item.  This effect alone makes the theme a worthy contender for any site.

Of course, there are other customizations related to Ad Management, Colorization, SEO, and code integration.  These customizations allow you to tailor the theme to suit your purposes.

Some pre-built footer options would have been helpful, as you must add privacy/disclaimer page and links manually to the site.

The theme functions best as a professional blog presentation platform.   Since that is its intended purpose with this site, I think I have a perfect fit!

You can spend hours poring over numerous themes that offer different features.

I recall agonizing over which theme to choose from the 70 or so Elegant Theme options.

I could only imagine how much time it would have taken if I had expanded my search to as many free and paid options that I could find!  This site would have never got off the ground.

When you find a theme that looks attractive (or looks appropriate for the content), and it has much of the functionality that you’re looking for, stop.  Install the theme and start using it to get your project started.

Adjustments and alternate selections can always be made later, if necessary.

It may be even easier to make changes later, because you won’t have to imagine how the new theme would look with your posts; your posts will already be present and will be instantly rendered under the confines of the new theme.

I have tried only a handful of the Elegant Themes, and I have found them to be quite versatile.

There are themes created that cater to video presentations, fashion sites, ecommerce, review sites, and more.

In all, there are a little over 70 themes to choose from.  Each theme has a preview demo site available, so you won’t be left guessing what a site could look like.

The number of themes to browse is manageable, so you won’t be overwhelmed either.

If you’re looking for a place to find attractive, quality themes with a specific purpose in mind, I would definitely recommend that you check out Elegant Themes.
