Is there a theme that does what I am looking for?

  1. Hi,

    I am getting frustrated with my search for the perfect theme. Please help if you can!

    I am very happy with the look of my (journalist 1.3) blog
    http://cathyscholl.wordpress.com/
    EXCEPT for the fact that I want the images to be larger.

    One of the theme wranglers recommended Fusion which has a wider single column. I just started testing it here: http://nagababas.wordpress.com
    but already I see that only one post shows at a time. I would like BIG PICTURES where many posts show on one page. Is there such an animal? I would appreciate any suggestions.

    Thanks in advance,
    Cathy

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

  2. Very strange...twice I looked at my test blog

    http://nagababas.wordpress.com

    and only one post showed with an arrow to the previous post.
    Now I just pulled it up and both test posts are showing on the home page.
    I'm not sure what's going on here but if I can keep many posts "stacked" (is there a better word for this?) on the same page perhaps Fusion will work for me after all.

  3. Okay, Fusion seems to be working the way I want. See what you think.

    Since I've posted a question and gotten your attention let's put this space to good use...

    Is there another theme you would recommend over Fusion based on what I am asking for?

    AND/OR if you are familiar with Fusion I'd appreciate tips for setting up the footer with my present sidebar info.

    Thanks again.

  4. I've been blogging for 6 years and IMHO you will never find "the perfect theme".
    Please see here > Maximum displayed image width for all themes > http://wpbtips.wordpress.com/2009/07/23/maximum-image-width
    See also the Themes Showcase which has a demo site > http://theme.wordpress.com/

  5. Perhaps "perfect" wasn't a good word choice...how about "best available" theme that will fulfill my needs? :)

    timethief thanks for the maximun image width info. That is a big help to point me in the right direction. Now at least I can narrow down my choices from a manageable group.

    The themes showcase is not extremely helpful imho. (In case WordPress is reading this.) Yes, there are stats for each theme but I like to see a visual example and the sample blogs never seem to feature the stats which interest me.

  6. All wordpress.com blogs have wordpress.com stats. See here please > http://en.support.wordpress.com/stats/

    In additiopn to the wordpress.com stats program if we wish we can use non-Javacript 3rd party stats program. See also:

  7. Sorry timethief, another misunderstanding based on my choice of words.
    I am new here so don't have the "lingo" down yet. Sorry!

    You were suggesting I use the Themes Showcase and I was saying that I don't find it helpful because for each theme there are specs (SPECS is the word I meant, not STATS.) I mentioned that I like to see visual examples and usually the SPECS I am interested in are not shown in the sample blog. I can read about the largest image size the blog can use but I would prefer to see an example.

    I didn't mean to mention stats at all. Don't care about them.
