More Than Just a Theme (Drupal)

— Drupal on steriods!

As a web developer, I’ve created and modified Drupal and WordPress themes. No problem. Take photoshop design, slice and code. Make it look like the mock up.

When a client who really liked using WordPress but had a complex Drupal site already built brought a $47 Drupal theme by More Than Themes to me and asked “What do you think?” I was skeptical.

Two weeks later, we have converted to the new theme and the site is so much more user friendly. The theme that we used as our base came with custom features such as:

  • Five color schemes
  • Multiple background patterns
  • Superfish menus
  • Slideshow
  • Slideshow thumbnails
  • Built in reservation form
  • Pick a font with a couple of clicks, no code!
  • Image galleries page
  • Extra blogging features
  • One or two column layout
  • Gorgeous testimonials
  • and more

More than Themes really does deliver more than a theme. As a Drupal developer I can’t rave enough about the themes and how much time (and budget) they save. For $47 you can get a Drupal site that would cost thousands to develop, even in Drupal. These guys have really thought of everything. Check them out at http://www.morethanthemes.com
