I have been doing a lot of work lately modifying free WP templates. I am amazed at the number of free WP templates, and have to wonder why anyone would pay for a WordPress template.
I am periodically asked by customers if I would build them a custom WP template. I explain to them that I could build them a custom template for the right price. But, the better option would be to take a free template that has much of what they want, and then I can modify the template to meet their needs. This saves my customer money and saves me time.
With all the free templates that are available, it doesn’t take much to make your blog unique from any other blog.
I wanted to show you a few of the blogs that I have worked on lately. These blogs where created with free WP templates, but have been modified to fit my customer’s needs. The images below don’t show you the whole picture, you really need to visit the sites to see some of the modifications made.
These are actually a series of sites related to exercising different parts of your body.
The blog was designed to look more like a normal HTML type of site instead of a blog.
This blog is a modified free template, with some additional features like the Relationship Q&A, plus a readable sitemap and a special widget designed just for this site.
Get Back Together Tips
This site is very similar to the above, except it includes an article on the main page, with article summaries of two different categories at the bottom of the page.
These are just a few examples of some of the things that can be done with free wp templates.
