    hello,
    which theme are you using?
    many themes using a homepage template. Without knowing your active theme I cannot clearly say which file is used.

    You can see a good overview here:

    Which criterion are you asking to judge against?

    (@dinesh786)

    Overall, if we making any site using word-press and we want to use any theme to customise than which theme we have to use

    I’m not sure it’s a valid criteria (or pertinent to this conversation) but Twenty Ten will no longer be shipped with WordPress as of 3.5. It will still be supported just not bundled.

    The short road to 3.5

    Means we can say that the Twentyeleven is better theme than twentyten.

    Right Jan Dembowski ?

    Nope. They’re just different themes. As to which is better… well, it depends what you’re looking for. 🙂

    Esmi knows best. 😉 Better is subjective. Give both of them a test run and pick which one you think would be better for your needs.

    If I was developing a child theme, I’d go for twenty eleven. It’s a little more modular that twenty ten which makes it easier to customise a specific part of the theme. Other than that, just chose the one you like the best. 🙂

    If you’re looking for a basic theme to convert into a custom theme, have a look at Toolbox. That’s my current favourite base theme. If you prefer theme frameworks, try Thematic. Alternatively, if you want a theme/framework packed full of layout options and tools, see Suffusion.

    It’s a way of customising the look and/or functionality of a downloaded theme without actually touching the main (parent) theme itself. See Child_Themes.
