For over a month now, I’ve been working on the set up of my WordPress theme Amazing Grace by VladimirPrelovac. I looked at thousands of free templates, but none suited my needs and tastes. I stumbled upon Amazing Grace while reading another blog poster’s comments. As soon as I saw the theme I knew I could make it work at Paul J Roberts . com
Things I like about Amazing Grace
- Simple lay out
- Mild colors
- Rotating Header Pictures (I customized mine with new pictures 😉 )
- Vladimir Prelovac’s support on his blog page
Many “how to” blogs give only basic information on how to set up and admin a WordPress blog. But Vladimir’s is superbly detailed with specific examples of how to set up all aspects of a WordPress blog (SEO, blog speed, tags, etc). He even writes some of his own plug-ins! By far, Vladimir’s blog is one of the best I’ve come across and it helped me set up my own WordPress Blog using his Amazing Grace theme. Check it out and see for yourself and set up your own family or professional web blog today!
Changing the rotating pictures:
BTW, if any of you wish to learn how to change the rotating pictures in the header screen with your own, it’s not too difficult. No one seems to have posted a good how to on this yet. Post a comment showing your interest. I’ll whip up a quick how to and even supply the blank base pic you’ll need to overlay your own pic on top of. You’ll need either Adobe Photoshop or GIMP and also Fotosizer to do the grunt work. Let me know….
