Picking a Great WordPress Theme For Your Church WebsiteBy
This post in the Using WordPress to Run Church Websites series is about finding an existing WordPress template (“theme”) that you can adapt to use for your church website.
Now that we’ve established the basic layout we’re looking for … it’s time to find a WordPress theme (WordPress-speak for “template).
One super great features of using WordPress is that hundreds, maybe even thousands, of website designers offer their themes for free to the public. And as one great theme designer said, you can save literally thousands of dollars by using these free themes.
You can browse all these at the WordPress Community Themes Viewer here.
What we’re looking for is a theme that supports easy tweaking for your church website.
You’ll want to find one that’s not complex, but is easy to read, with a clean look.
Here are some of my favorite themes that I think could tweaked for use on your church website:
>> Chris Pearson’s Cutline theme
>> Daniel gives a list of 10 great themes here
>> WPDesinger has several classic, clean, great looking themes available
>> PlainTxt has some super clean, basic and simple themes that are highly customizable
>> Basic2Col is super with the basic structure to tweak any way you want.
>> IfElse has one simple ones here.
