After much searching I believe I have discovered the best free affiliate website Wordpress theme.
Freemium and Premium
There is a vast marketplace of freemium and premium wordpress themes. A quick google search reveals many lists of fantastic looking Wordpress themes. Having reviewed at least twenty or so of these lists and installed most of their recommended themes, I feel qualified enough to pass judgement. The key stumbling block I came across with most freemium Wordpress themes was that although they superficially looked fantastic, once installed, cracks promptly began to appear.
The Quest for Professional Looking Pages
My biggest point of frustration was that I wanted to create professional looking website pages. Unfortunately in just about every freemium theme I tested, pages would always feature ‘posted by’, ‘post date’ and comments sections. Whilst these are okay in blog posts, I certainly did not want them to feature on actual pages (especially my home page). Furthermore, most of the prettiest freemium themes have been used to death by the tens of thousands of bloggers that have installed them.
The Ashford Theme Saves The Day
Thankfully I stumbled across the Ashford theme, which is absolutely incredible. The Ashford theme has a built in options menu which installs itself into your Wordpress CMS. The Ashford theme offers loads of options making it incredibly easy to customise the look and feel of your Wordpress site. I cannot recommend this theme highly enough – just install it and you will soon see for yourself why it is so great.
Who Will Love The Ashford Theme?
The Ashford theme is perfect for affiliates wanting to create niche content sites and easily integrate the vast number of available Wordpress plugins. There are of course other great Wordpress powered affiliate resources out there, and the Ashford theme probably won’t suit those more generic shopping site affiliates. But if you are looking for a powerful, reliable and simple CMS for your niche content affiliate site then the Ashford theme is perfect for you.
