    Hi thanks for your amazing posts
    I wanna use thesis framework and I think, its complicated
    can you suggest a video or test source for tutorial?

  2. Will Robins says


    I was really looking forward to FREE thesis skins. These are all membership sites to gain access to multiple skins. I am thinking of installing it (Thesis) on my site but wanted to play with a few skins and get used to it first. I like the sites I see using it but don’t want to pay heavy for a custom deal…

    Got any that are truly free to play with? I have Thesis and it came with 2. Thanks

    Hi Harsh,
    I am thinking to try straight shooter to test on one of my blog. I just want to confirm whether its a good idea to have premium skin or free skin will do. What are the benefits of paid skins as compared to free one.
    Can you tell me which skin do you use?

    Nice post but no use because thesis theme is not free and it doesn’t matter if the skin are free or not.

  7. Ricky says

    I guess you have covered all the available themes in blogosphere Harsh. Blogussion is one of the best theme but it is not free. I know that you offer thesis customization. Why don’t you release SML thesis skin or something like that?

    The Straight Shooter Skin looks the best from them all…Even though I do not have Thesis , If I had and would have to go with a free theme then it would be Straight Shooter all the way
