CSSIgniter is a premium WordPress theme store that has a beautiful collection of designs. Rather than pricing themes individually, WordPress users can get access to all CSSIgniter designs for only $39 a year.
CSSigniter were kind enough to give me access to a test account so that I could take a look at their designs for all of you. They were also kind enough to donate 3 theme memberships to WordPress mods readers. More details of how you can win a theme membership will be posted later today. In the meantime, let’s look at what the theme membership offers :)
The theme download section on CSSIgniter is fantastic. Documentation for each theme is linked from this area and members can download the theme in WordPress format or in HTML5. The photoshop PSD files that were used to develop the design are also included for all themes except two.
Each theme comes with it’s own options panel. Certain options here vary from theme to theme such as configuring the featured post slider and displaying portfolio posts however most settings are used in each theme such as social media, Google and Feedburner integration. It also allows you to insert your BuySellAds code directly after the opening body tag.
The settings area is really easy to navigate and each section has a description above that explains what the option does. For major customisation you will need to edit the theme manually though most basic settings can be configured through the settings area (which is good news for beginners).
8 custom widgets are included with each design including an about me widget, BuySellAds advertisement widget and social media widget.
