Thank you for your timely response. I don't want to offend as I know a lot of people have put a lot of hard work into creating the various themes etc. It's just that from a designers perspective they are really bad and I was hoping to find something that look somewhat professional.
I know for a fact that there are a "lot" of really nice themes "for sale" but it could be that "WordPress.com" prevents any really nice themes from becoming "Free" templates so people are more inclined to pay for the upgrade. This is unfortunate because I don't want an ugly blog so I am most likely going to look elsewhere. :(
So now I have to consider if I want to "pay" (which I don't really want to do since I am already paying for a domain and web hosting for my website etc.) or look at Blogger.com which allows you to edit the HTML of the page for "Free".
If I wanted to design a theme for implementation, where could I learn hoe to do that and any ideas where I might find a designer who I could work with to do this?
I just really wish "All" of the current Themes allowed you to customize the themes more. For example I want an theme with a large banner image approx. 960 wide x 320 tall. It's too bad there's not a Banner or Image Widget that would allow you to add any size banner to the header area.
I also wish you could change the font style from Serif to Sans Serif on all Themes. There is a default Sans Serif font for all computers and it's called "Helvetica".
I also wish you could change the color of the fonts on all themes. For example I wanted to use a certain theme but there was no way to change the font color where some of the themes allowed to you to do this.
Why are there so many limitations!!!
