The Best WordPress Themes for Business – WordPress Templating pt2

Wordpress Business Themes

Since we our first post on the best wordpress themes for business, there has been an update to WordPress, Google and to the quality of themes available to businesses who want to use WordPress as a CMS system for their business.

If you are using WordPress for your business, it should at least have the following, which we have outlined before.

  1. Menu bar across the top.
  2. Two Column Layout
  3. Space for your logo in the top left hand corner.
  4. Background colour of the body is white.
  5. Stretchable side areas (outside of the body)
  6. CSS menu (not images)

Also there are a few more factors that need to be taken into account;

Decide what your brand is; choose a flexible template

Have a look around at your competitors and see how they are producing their website. Make sure you have a template that is flexible enough to be customised and changed to suit your brand. We don’t want to see an infinate number of customisable options, like in atuhalpa, but you do need to be able to change the background, change the colours and easily add a logo.

Reduced Javascript and CSS

There are some good plugins to reduce the size and compress .js and css files, however they don’t always work with all templates and sometimes they can be a pain to customise. Templates that rely on a lot of additional css and javascript files, across a lot of folders, will slow down your website. In the long term this pay cause you to be penalised by search engines.

Breathing space

Your website should breath. Too much clutter and you will scare away and confuse your visitors. Every element in your wordpress website should be given breathing space. It should also mean that when you add a widget to the sidebar, whether it is an image or text, it should not destroy the flow of the template.
