Best template for a website

  1. I work for a not for profit company and we want to use wordpress.COM to create a website. I know this has been done before and it is the best tool for us as we don't have anyone with developer skills. I am >not< confusing this with wordpress.ORG

    I am looking for a template that would work well as website - easy top menu (not interested in a side menu) with multiple sub-menus as well. The ability to use slideshows is important. The main thing is, we don't want it to look like a blog.

    I looked at the premium DEBUT theme and I like it but I worry it is too picture heavy and will be hard to convert into a normal looking website.

    Any suggestions on themes that would be appropriate? Interested in free or premium themes.

    The blog I need help with is safeandcaring.wordpress.com.

  2. Hi, did you find solution to your question above? I am trying to do the same for my non-profit. I have started using Skylark theme which has great features but keep running into issues of post versus page. It is lot of arm twisting.

  3. I purchased Debut. It is great because it has a lot of visuals which is a great thing to add to a website. It also has great options to create custom menus and distinguish between blog posts and home page posts, as well as create pages and turn off comments etc.

    I am really happy with it!

  4. May I ask you a question since my challenges are probably the same as yours. On home page, below the slider, were you able to put content - maybe images - in grid without saying "Read more." And when they are clicked on, goes to pages and not posts?

    To make it clearer, I am trying to put buttons or links for Donate, Join, etc. and they need to link to pages, not post format.

    Thanks!!

  7. hello there,
    We Volunteer do not assist bloggers with themes election simply because theme selection is subjective. There is a Themes Showcase here > http://theme.wordpress.com/ with a searchbox for features that you use to narrow your search. All themes have Theme Descriptions and live demo sites. For locating answers to questions about specific themes you can also search these support forum threads by theme name.
    Examples:
    Theme Description http://theme.wordpress.com/themes/twentytwelve/
    live demo http://twentytwelvedemo.wordpress.com/

    Theme Description http://theme.wordpress.com/themes/Able/
    live demo http://abledemo.wordpress.com/

  8. Debut forum threads http://en.forums.wordpress.com/tags/debut

    Read-access to the premium themes forum is now open to all users so you can search to see if your question has been previously asked and answered there. The premium theme forums are at http://premium-themes.forums.wordpress.com/ with separate sections for each theme. http://premium-themes.forums.wordpress.com/debut

    Those who have purchased Debut and are not successful when searching will find there is a link for the specific Premium Theme support forum for the theme under Appearance -> Themes in your blog’s Dashboard, but do note that the premium theme must be active and they must be signed in as the user who purchased it in order to see it and post to it.
