    Default Best Wordpress Themes: general or Flytonic?

    What are the best Wordpress Themes for gambling?

    Should we buy specialized themes such as Flytonic themes?

    Or other gambling themes from another company?

    Thank you in advance!

    In terms of pre-made themes, Flytonic all the way. There's not even a close second in my opinion.

    Flytonic is nice - if you are doing a gambling site then as Shay stated , they have no peers. The documentation does take some working through though, i had a bit of trouble with it , the guys at Flytonic do respond to emails. I am happy that i bought a Flytonic theme. I would go with it.

    I just checked them out, they look pretty nice, in fact I though of giving it a try. One thing that rang a bell though is, if a lot of people are using them, aren't you afraid your site is gonna blend in with the rest, though the content and the promotion material might be different?

    Flytonic do some great themes and have great support in the forum. Highly recommend them. They can look a bit samey but if you get a decent logo and change some of the styling they can look different. Or you can pay someone to customise it for you if you don't know how to do it. The framework is what you pay for really with Flytonic, so easy to use and quite customisable from standard.

    They do custom designs on request. I am not sure what they charge for custom work, but they are pretty reasonable in pricing.

    Yap, I saw that and have already asked for a quota. Figured that if it's a couple hundred bucks more, would be much better to get a custom that something generic that I'd have to edit myself for at least a day to suit my needs and match all of the article alignments etc.

    I use a combination of flytonic, other CCK's and hand coded stuff - they all have their benefits.

    For a super large site though, I'd look at having a custom system built.

    Flytonic have some specific gambling themes, but their design is very poor in my opinion. If you have some experience with Wordpress and you can do your own customization, go for something more professional like Elegant Themes, for example. It's even cheaper....

    Flytonic also has a lot of errors on coding that are not solved... if you do a check on the theme you will discover so many... not sure how this affects on the rankings though.

    I've found that when any issues/errors are brought to the attention of the people behind Flytonic, they are very responsive. They fix the coding issue and then offer an update via their website (in the forum, if I remember correctly).

    It has been a few years since we've had any issues to report, but when we did - they were quick to fix.

    Go custom or use a light template and modify your own CSS to make it custom and unique.

    The Flytonic themes look great, but if too many webmasters started using the same themes over and over again, then that might not be a good idea. Just a thought.

    I think they look good, especially as a start point to learn the game.

    Good thing too many people do not use vbulletin for online forums such as this one. Oh, wait...

    I never used Flytonic, but I used Themefuse WP templates many times and their support is excellent! They are not gaming specific templates as such but they generally have a few page templates one can use and apply gaming content to.
