As you can see, I’ve rolled out a new theme to this website. It’s an awesome theme called Freshtweet which incorporates a number of Twitter-ish ideas. Here are some of the great features:
- Change color styles with a single click
- Choose a featured category via the theme options area
- Integrate Feedburner and Email link subscriptions
- Integrate TweetRoll widget with one click
- Simple and clean design
- jQuery sidebar
- Supports threaded comments
- Drop down categories at a glance
- Prominent search area
- Easily integrate â€œRecent Comments With Avatarsâ€ plugin
- Compatible with WordPress 2.8+
- Easy access to admin area for logged in users
- Optimized for search engine traffic
I find WordPress an excellent platform for blogging, as you can change the look and feel of your blog anytime you wish, without losing any of your content. And I use it for non-blogs too. It doesn’t matter if you’re a professional Orange County web design firm or just a sole developer building websites in his free time (i.e. me), but it’s always a great asset having a platform you can build on easily.
What do you think of it? What would you change?
