It gives me immense happiness to present to all my blog readers, a brand new free WordPress theme called Businezz! As you can guess by its name, this is a business styled theme which can be used by anyone wishing to launch a company,corporate or business website/portfolio. Businezz sports a crisp design that will add value to any blog/website that implements it.
The theme comes with a ready-to-use homepage and a separate blog page for your posts. All the different segments of the home page have been designed keeping in mind how a company website should look. The home page can be easily set up from the theme options that have been integrated with the WordPress admin section. For the blog, all you have to do is make a new page and choose its page template as the “blog template”. So basically, this a two in one theme 🙂
Instructions to Set up the theme
The different sections of the home page include:-
- Business Links & Phone Number (configurable)
- Slideshow (category & no. of posts configurable)
- About the Company (category configurable)
- Testimonials (category & no. of testimonials configurable)
- Latest Company News in the Sidebar (no. of posts configurable)
On the Blog template (for blog page that you will create), you can toggle the thumbnails and also toggle between excerpt and full post views. The blog template comes with ready-to-use pagination so you don’t have to install any other plugin to create page numbers. Its already done for you!
To prove all of the above, here is a screen shot of the theme options that are provided with the theme :-
The theme comes with threaded comments capability which you can enable by going to wp-admin -> settings -> discussion. There are two widgetized sidebars in the theme – one for the home page and one for the inner sections like the blog, pages and single posts.
And before I forget, for configuring the social bookmarking links in the footer, you will have to physically edit the footer.php file and replace your own links (should be an easy process – I am here if someone needs help ).
Demo & Download
It takes a lot of effort producing workable and good looking themes for all of you. In return, all I expect is a comment from each one of you who plans to use this theme. Even if you don’t use this theme, any feedback (negative or positive) will matter a lot for me 🙂 So keep them coming.
