Over the last week I have been working on learning how to make the Thesis theme not look like the Thesis theme. It started with an idea of trying to come up with a fresher look for a site I was building so I started to search the internet to see what other people might be doing with their Thesis themes. What I found was very impressive and encouraging because I knew I was going to be able to come up with something cool with all of the different looks I saw around the net.
Why I Use The Thesis Theme
I have owned the Thesis theme for the about 2 years now and have been very happy with it. Every time there is an upgrade it is amazing how much improvement is made to the theme. Many of the customization options have been built into the dashboard options to make it very simple to create different looks of colors and headers and navigation buttons. What I wanted to do was take it to the next level of customization and really move some things around and make some changes that are not typical to the “out of the box” look of the Thesis theme.
I will be creating a tutorial series to show exactly how I made these changes and customized the Thesis theme to not look like the Thesis theme.
I also found this really cool tool to capture screen shots. Its free and designed for Twitter but you can use the code to insert into your blog as I did here. You get up to 5 minutes of recording. Very Cool.

Here Is What You Are Going To Learn
Here is a quick look at a great site I found to see a large variety of customized Thesis themes and why I picked the one I did to work from.
Let me know what you think about the screenr and stay tuned for the tutorial — it’s going to be a lot of fun.
