Bloggers often struggle with choosing the right theme for their site. If you are using WordPress, there are literally thousands of freely available themes to choose from. What factors should you consider to make this decision though? My friend Joost de Valk created a nice compilation with the check points that you should look for before grabbing a theme. They are:
- Template files
- Is your theme widgetized?
- Does your theme have a search option?
- Does your theme work in all browsers?
- Is the theme’s code valid?
- Check the outgoing links!
- Can the theme handle pages?
- Make sure your theme supports trackbacks
- How is your theme handling titles?
