    New to wordpress. Out of 1000+ theme choices, can someone recommend any themes better for ecommerce? Also I have vers 2.9.2. Is it better to stay with older version or update to 3.0.1?
    Thank you

    it is always better to run the newest version of WP, for security reasons if nothing else

    It is nearly impossible to recommend a theme based on e-commerce. Reason being, normally the e-copmmerce stuff is handled by a plugin. I use eshop, but there are others, like wp ecommerce

    So basically, any theme will pretty much work. You need to picka theme based on the layout you want... the look and feel you are going for

    I really like the suffussion theme for plug and play (as in, for a site where I'm not going to build my own theme) it has lots of options for customizing with no code. But take a look around and find a theme that looks how you want. Nearly any theme will work with the commerce plugins avauilable

    Thanks, I am finding out how important it is to find a theme without having to deal with code. The theme previews always look so good until I apply them.

    True. We recently worked on a ecommerce project for a client and found that every theme out there has some shortcoming. However, here are some ecommerce themes that we found worth mentioning:
