Last month we wrote a review of the TypeMagz theme from the ColorLabs Project team, an up and coming premium theme website which offers a variety of premium theme designs at below market value prices.  This week I received word that their new premium theme design, which was built specifically for those looking for a standard blog design, is now available for purchase.

The premium themes market has had an overwhelming focus on CMS Themes since its inception back in late 2007, but I’ve always felt that there should also be a variety of blog designs available for all of the WordPress users which actually *gasp* want a nice blog design to use with their blogging software.  After all, despite being an extremely flexible piece of software, the core function of WordPress is blogging, right?

That leads me to believe that there is a large market of buyers looking for a nice blog design which includes a flexible feature set and is also available at a lower price point than the more advanced CMS themes currently available.  The new WellBlog theme by ColorLabs Project is one of those blogging templates which does a pretty good job of achieving the goals I have for a solid premium blog theme.

To start, here is an example of the design and control panel which is included with the WellBlog theme.

If you’d like to test it out, you can check out the live demo of the black version of the WellBlog theme here.

The WellBlog theme also includes a number of features in addition to the 3 built-in skins to choose from.  Probably my favorite unique feature is the scrolling “Most Commented” section at the top of the sidebar.  Here are a few of the other more notable features:

  • Supports WordPress Threaded Comments
  • Built-in Gravatar Support
  • After-Sales Support and Upgrade
  • Cross-Browser Compatible
  • Advertisement Banner Management
  • Theme Administration Control Panel

If you are interested in learning more about the WellBlog theme, or are interested in purchasing a license for your WordPress blog, it is currently available for $50.00 (single-website license), or $200.00 (developer’s license for unlimited websites).  WPHacks.com readers can use coupon code 94F4D as well to get an additional 30% off your purchase!

If WellBlog isn’t for you, you can also view all of the themes available from ColorLabs Project here.

    Hi Kyle,

    Well said. I would like to see some brighter colors available for this design, but otherwise it looks pretty nice and seems to offer some unique features that many other designs don’t have.

    I’ve got a thing for black themes, and this one is particularly pretty! Wellblog is definitely worth a gander if you’re looking at an off the shelf WordPress solution. The other offerings in the ColorLabs Project inventory are pretty dandy too, so do look at them if you’re in the market for a premium WordPress Theme.

    I really like this theme. Very nice looking and I love the darker shades. It is a bit expensive too.
