FlipBlog is the hottest new thing since sliced bread. This theme is like a Rock Star buisness/portfolio theme got together with a hip blog theme and had a baby. Yeah… FlipBlog is the whole package.

FlipBlog Video Tutorials

I want you to know exactly what you’re buying with when you purchase FlipBlog, and so I’ve prepared about 30 minutes of video tutorials here for you. FlipBlog is packed with features, but I went ahead and picked out my favorite ones to show you.

And did I mention that all of these video tutorials are simply in addition to some rock-solid documentation that comes with the theme?

Total Customization

With FlipBlog, visual customization is key. It’s impportant that you have total control over the look of your site all from the comfort of your WordPress admin panel; this theme gives you that! So, if you’re planning on using FlipBlog for your next website, there are a few questions you’re going to have to answer for yourself…

     How are you going to flip it?

     Which homepage layout does it for you?

     What style are you going with?

     What color are you going to pick for the header?

     What color are you going to pick for the footer?

     And what about an accent color?

     Here’s how your basic visual customization is set.

Built-in SEO

FlipBlog comes with SEO built right in. You can take advantage of all it’s features or just disable it if you want to use a third-party SEO plugin. Watch the video: ThemeBlvd SEO Plugin Overview.

Note: This is not stand-alone WordPress plugin. It comes integrated into this theme and is designed to work perfectly with ThemeBlvd themes.

Introducing “Theme Hints”

If the rock-solid documentation included, built-in documentation scattered throughout your WordPress admin panel, and over 30 minutes of video tutorials wasn’t enough, I’m also introducing a new feature to help you get started called Theme Hints. Turn on Theme Hints and then browse through the front-end of your website to see clues on where and how to edit the different parts of your website.

     Flip it on…

     And browse the front-end…

Server Requirements

In order to run this theme, your server must have PHP5 and you must have WordPress 3.x installed.

If you’re not running at least PHP5 on your web server, it’s a bit of a security risk, anyway. Any respectable web host should update you for free if you just ask. If you’re on some sort of dedicated server plan, they will sometimes charge you a small fee to update.
