WP Theme Review: Amazing GraceBy JP Habaradas on January 23, 2008 @jaypee
Here’s a simple, neat and fresh looking theme from Vladimir Prelovac. You might have a hard time pronouncing or remembering the author’s name but I’m sure you won’t have a hard time liking this theme. Amazing Grace as the theme name goes, is Vladimir’s first WordPress theme. Not bad for a first time if you ask me. Are you wondering why he named his theme like that? He got it from the title of one of his favorite songs, a gospel song entitled Amazing Grace.

I love this theme! If I had a personal blog, I’d use this theme right away. Btw this theme is not only for personal blogs because it’s SEO optimized, Adsense ready and includes social networking support which are ideal features for a niche blog.
The two level navigation is also a nice integration into this theme because it can save space and provide a way for the user to highlight the important categories of the blog. Vladimir also made two very good choices: the color scheme and the font types. The colors used in Amazing Grace has a cool and soothing effect to the eyes and the font types are easy to read. It’s also widget-ready which makes it appealing to more WordPress users. One more thing I love about this theme is how fast it loads. As mentioned earlier, the author optimized it so it loads faster than a regular theme would.
The Amazing Grace WordPress theme is easy to install and if you have a basic knowledge of HTML and CSS, you’d be able to customize this theme to your liking. I love this theme so much I give it a 4.5 out of 5. Excellent work Vladimir and we hope you make more WordPress themes soon.
Do you like this theme and consider using it on your blog? Why or why not? If you’re already using this theme, what made you decide to use it?
