I’ve been using Weaver II Pro for a long time now, for a non-profit organization’s web site. I have both public areas as well as private areas for the staff and board of directors, and this theme lets me do it all (with the benefit of plugins). The price for the Pro version is really fair, and I feel with the amount of work this developer must have put into it, it’s well-deserved. I think I’m using it more like a content management system than just a web site. FWIW here are the plugins I use with Weaver and they all play nice:
-Ajax event calendar (nice calendar)
-all in one favicon (adds favicon to browser)
-BM custom login (custom login page)
-content scheduler (expires posts automatically, I use it all the time)
-easy theme and plugin upgrades (at Weaver’s recommendation)
-Fast secure contact form (fantastic plugin, I actually donated money to this developer, the plugin’s so good)
-user access manager (CMS feature which allows staff and board of directors to access to their respective private areas of the site)
-Peter’s login redirect (users were getting annoyed at going to the dashboard by default, this takes care of it)
-Q and A FAQ and Knowledgebase for WordPress
-SABRE (new user authentication, anti-spam)
-TinyMCE Advanced (duh!)
-Simple Login Log (tells me who logged in)
-Simple Section Navigation Widget (really good for CMS aspect of the site. I use it to provide a table of contents for the policies and procedures section of the site)
-Smooth Slider (nice sliders for the front page)
-TheThe Tabs and Accordions (makes really cool tabbed content)
All this from me who does not know (nor wants to know) how to code one line of PHP!
I used to have Simple Press Forum but got disillusioned when they went to a paid format. No forum any more.
