    Nice list of themes but all the templatic themes are bugful and they are very worst coded.

    Contains malicious codes as well.

      Can you expand on that? If there are any malicious codes in them I believe they would have provided updates that fix the vulnerability.

    Thanks R Bhavesh, I don’t wish for a protracted to and fro dialogue here on WPMayor, just for other readers’ information, the only Templatic theme in this review is ‘Geo Places’, which R Bhavesh has confirmed not to have any malicious codes.

    No theme can ever be confirmed to be 100% free of bugs, the important thing is that the theme supplier responds quickly to support requests and fixes the bug. From my experience I can say that Templatic do not take more than a few hours to reply to support requests and R Bhavesh has been a very esteemed member of the WordPress community for a number of years.

    Hello would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re using?
    I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m having a hard time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs
    and I’m looking for something completely unique. P.S Sorry for getting off-topic but I had to ask!
