    I always find it amusing (and irritating) to see a company claiming to be professional - whether it's just web design or as a complete media agency offering web design as one of its services - and they're using a purchased WP theme for their own site.
    If you can't even code your own site, how can you offer web design as a service?
    By all means use Wordpress - it's a good CMS if used correctly, but at least code your own theme!

    I understand completely where AlphaMare is coming from. I run a personal blog but I did not make a custom theme for it. (Have before, just not this time around)

    I do think from a customers view it is an alright site. Does seem a little to.. barren at the top area of the site. Then you scroll down and there is a ton more content.

    Greg - Thanks - I have read your blog. No need to make a custom theme unless that is part of what you're trying to sell.
    I often use themes that have been purchased by my clients - one reason why you seldom see my sites here for review. I would only ask for a review of my own work.
    I guess from a customer's point of view the site looks OK - but again, if I were a customer and expecting custom work designed for me alone, I'd like to know that my designer had enough confidence in his work to create something original for himself.

    How are you always able to tell if it is a purchased wp theme or not? I always see you saying this to seemingly random sites.

    Design is a funny word. Some people think design means how it looks.
    But of course, if you dig deeper, itís really how it works.

    I work with WP a lot, and I sell some themes myself. I also know most of the places where you can buy themes, and sometimes I can recognize a style from a certain vendor.

    Also, when I review a site, I always look at the code. If I see see a line in the <head> that tells you the CSS for the site, like this:

    <link rel="stylesheet" href="http://www. somedomain. com/wp-content/themes/moonlight-v1.7.2/moonlight/style.css">

    I know it's WordPress because of the wp-content directory, and the part after the themes directory is the name of the theme.

    If it is a custom theme it's usually called something to do with the company name or the domain name.
    In this case the name has nothing to do with the company or the domain, it's "moonlight", which sounds a lot like the kind of name given to a theme for sale.

    In Chrome you can just click on the CSS file and it will open - you can see the Author and the URL of the site that sells the theme at the top of the CSS file. Or you can just Google Moonlight WP theme and you'll find where it's sold and who sells it.
