WP Theme Review: IrresistibleBy JP Habaradas on March 11, 2009 @jaypee
WooThemes is one of the best and most popular places to purchase premium WordPress themes. The current theme I’m using is called Fresh News which I purchased from WooThemes. Aside from premium WordPress themes, once in a while the folks from WooThemes also release free WordPress themes to the public. The latest free WordPress theme they released is called the Irresistible theme, designed by Izuddin Helmi.
Irresistible is a visually-rich personal blog, with a little bit of a multimedia focus. Incorporating some nifty video-options and widgets, Irresistible should meet all of your personal blogging needs. Just add your content to the mix.
- 2 columns
- Flickr support
- Integrated banner ad management
- Integrated video player
- 9 colour schemes
The Irresistible WordPress theme like the theme author described it, is a visually-rich theme and has all the qualities of a premium theme except that its free. Although this theme was designed primarily for personal blogs, I’m pretty sure other types of blogs would be able to use this theme with a little modification/customization. This theme is widget-ready and is packaged with some custom widgets that lets the user have full control with the sidebar.
WooThemes has included the PSD file with the theme package. With the help of Adobe Photoshop, you can basically edit/customize almost any part of the theme’s design and graphics. If you don’t have Photoshop, you can probably ask a friend who has it to do the editing/customizing for you.
If you plan to use the Irresistible theme, make sure you have the skills necessary to tweak WordPress themes. or have a friend who can help you because this is a free theme and it doesn’t include theme support from WooThemes. If you don’t mind shelling out some money, you can always purchase support from WooThemes.
Overall, the Irresistible theme is a very good WordPress theme suited for personal blogs. It’s got almost all aspects of an ideal WordPress theme covered – widget-ready, integrated banner ad management, integrated video player, lifestream, 9 colour schemes and PSD file making it a highly customizable theme.
