  9. gifts to bangalore Says:

    These themes have a very clear accessibility and look simply amazing…

    I would recommend against anything by Templatic. I bought the Kidz Store theme and have been dissatisfied. The e-commerce backend is sloppy and missing basic features, and if you have a support question, it’s a ticket system and you only get a 1 sentence response after waiting a day or two. For support, Justin Tadlock and Hybrid Themes is a great choice. And I love the design of Elegant Themes, which are not only more beautiful than Templatic, but have solid support forums. Again, I would not recommend Templatic.

  11. wpStoreCart Says:

  14. Wordpress Themes Says:

    I’ve not found a better platform for building and managing a website. Doesn’t matter whether you’re blogging, have a store front, create a massive business site or need a basic, static website to promote your services and products – WordPress can manage it all.
    And te themes are not only good for personal use, but also for your clients, makes it easier to customize to there style.
