So without much further ado, here are some reasons why we love WordPress.

 

1. WordPress is So Easy To Use

WordPress is so easy to use with its intuitive admin interface. This brings the ability to create a website to the masses regardless of skill level. I think this is the number one reason why we love WordPress so much.  Before content management systems like WordPress existed we had to learn complicated website programming code to create a website. Now anyone who wants to publish can start out with an account at [WordPress.com](http://www.wordpress.com) or set up their own hosted blog/website using the software at [WordPress.org](http://www.wordpress.org).  Best of all, no matter which method you use,  WordPress is absolutely free!

Review on the Thesis WordPress Theme

ThesisI’ve been quite interested in the Thesis WordPress theme because it’s one of the most talked about themes out there and for a very good reason.

Why Thesis Is Better

Thesis is one of the best WordPress themes you can have because of the supreme flexibility it offers as well as the SEO advantages.  Just like many before me, I was frustrated with tweaking previously created WordPress themes. Thesis is designed to with airtight code so it loads faster. No matter how you change the look of your website, the underlying primal code remains unchanged and this is quite important from an SEO point of view.

The default Thesis theme will give you a basic working website right out of the box. The settings panel is very detailed with options for changing the fonts, colors, scripts and a large number of other settings. Any changes you want to make are made to only two custom files within the Thesis panel interface, which makes customizing it much easier. A big plus is being able to upload your header and faveicon files directly to the website.

10 Reasons Why You Want To Buy A Premium WordPress Theme

So I’ve worked long and hard at this project of mine, and that is trying to figure out which WordPress Themes I was going to buy for my website. I was done with trying to make a free WordPress theme work. It was just too much of a hassle and the lack of tech support and options to customize it was making want to pull my hair out.

So if my experience hasn’t convinced you, I’ve listed quite a few more reasons why you might want to purchase a premium WordPress theme:

1) More Control: You have more control of your website appearance and functionality as some of the better premium themes come with customization options that you can easily change without having to edit the code itself. Yes, WordPress is easy but its not that easy. Website themes or templates make it easier for you to customize your site the way you want it to look and function. I’ve found that free themes are some of the hardest themes to work with if you have no knowledge of HTML, CSS and PHP code and have bigger ideas in mind for your website.

2) Tech Support: Professional WordPress Suppliers almost always provide tech support to purchasers of their WordPress themes.

3) HTML/Browser Compliance: You can be assured that the theme is professionally made and internet code compliant from a trusted source.

4) Free Upgrades: When you buy a WordPress theme from a reputable source, all future upgrades are usually provided for free or at a low cost.
