Customize Your WordPress with 600 No-Coding Design Options in Catalyst

Often when you purchase a WordPress theme, it comes with usually one theme that has some configurable items through the WordPress backend. Some theme providers like Themify are now putting a creative touch by selling numerous color variations with one theme purchase, so you can use the same theme (different colors) for different sites. But that still does not give you a lot of control because you are getting one theme with pre-defined color variations. The folks over at Catalyst theme are providing a rather unique touch for their users. When you purchase Catalyst, you get 22 different skins in addition to the main theme for the price of just one theme. Now these skins are more than just color variations.

    Hi guys
    Catalyst looks good but I always think that if you buy a theme designed by a pro, they already have the best colour combinations.

    I’m looking for a theme framework to use for clients and thought that I’d narrowed it down to Thesis, Genesis or Headway but Catalyst looks as though it could be in there with a chance.

    Any advice boys?
