Tool of the Week – Splash Theme for WordPress

The tool of the week is the Splash Theme for WordPress.


I received a few queries recently, asking if I knew of a theme that would be good for product review sites.  Since I was planning to do a review site myself, that is something I was already looking into.

The one that I feel best suits that need for me, is the Splash theme.  I really like the product centric focus and of the sites I’ve seen that utilize the theme, the design and layout is really impressive.  The theme also looks great on mobile devices.

Here are some examples of a few sites utilizing the theme:

MainLaunchPad.com (my test site)

If you are planning on creating a site focused around reviews of particular products, I think the Splash theme would be a great one to consider.

He just published the post last week and he does a really great job of showing you exactly what goes into a great review post and provides some high quality examples as well.  Good stuff!
