I have been researching wordpress themes for days. My eyes are burning and even going a bit cross eyed if I’m being truthful. I am looking for a theme that’s easy to use as I am not a programmer or developer and have almost zero knowledge of coding and such.

I am looking for an easy to use (drag and drop would be ideal) template that will allow me to upload Video from YouTube (on my own channel), A podcast link or embedded podcast player, Blog posts including archived posts, Photo Gallery, and a shop, oh and I need to be able to customise it with my own background, fonts etc.. Basically I need a theme that does it all yet is easy for a beginner to use.

I have looked at themes like ‘SOUNDBOARD, DETUBE, MODERNIZE along with hundreds more I can’t remember the names of, but the more I look, the more confused I get. I wouldn’t be so cautious normally but as most of the decent themes are paid services, then I just want to get everything I need from the off…

If anyone can give me some advice, it would be greatly appreciated. You may think I should just pay someone to do the site for me (which would be much easier) but finances don’t permit that at the moment and to be honest I quite like the challenge.

Thanks for reading my plea

If you like a challenge why have you already given up?

You know what your perfect theme is more than any of us

The perfect theme for someone is going to be tailored to them so it’ll be next to a developer saying what you don’t like and asking it to be changed, if you find a theme that is perfect for you then you’re very much in luck.

Themes are meant to be things that work out of the box straight away but it’s never going to be tailored down to a tiny market

As soon as you narrow it down you’ll get a hell of a lot less sales

Hi Ben, Thanks for responding..

I appreciate what you’re saying. I’m just after a complete multimedia theme that I can customise with ease. I don’t think that I’m asking for things that are out of the ordinary less I wouldn’t be on here asking for help from forum members, I would be off paying a guy to create something bespoke for me, but then again you may be right in that most people that create a website using a Worpress theme don’t need it to do all the things I am expecting.

I guess I was hoping that someone on here might have been able to say’ check out this theme, it does most of what you want and if it doesn’t you can easily customise it to suit your needs’.

I don’t want to take up too much of your time but can I just ask you.. Do you think that I am correct serching for ‘mulitmedia wordpress themes’ & ‘Music Wordpress themes’ in my quest to find a theme that almost ticks all my boxes..

Thanks again for your response :)
