WP theme that looks like this HTML site? (3 posts)

    I had WP installed on my site a while ago, but had some speed issues. Converted it to simple html but now I want the blog functionality back.

    Should I a) keep the html and install a wordpress blog at mysite.com/blog

    or b) install wordpress on the root domain and be done with it?

    I want a theme that looks like the html layout here

    Also, it needs to be fast - I used to use U Design and found it very buggy and slow.

    Any ideas? Thanks!

    There's a theme out there called Bangkok Press that handles fonts and those dividing "hashed lines" similarly. Those seem to be the most unique elements of your site, visually; otherwise, it's pretty standard.


    You could start there, although the homepage would need customized to some extent. (Bangkok Press is designed as a magazine theme, so you'd need to get rid of the sidebar and put in a large top slider to get to the design you sent over.)

    Oh, and for speed: Using a caching plugin and not hosting with GoDaddy are two good steps you can take. I remember this theme being fairly lightweight, though.

    Hope that's helpful!
