The main reason for me buying Thesis theme was the amount of flexibility it offered me to customize it according to my needs. Before switching to Thesis theme, I spent countless hours finding right theme for my blog and then after finding some theme , work on it to customize it to my needs. But after sometime i get stuck at one place or other, where i find that i cant do this or that as per my needs.
All this happened many times with many times and wasted many hours of mine. Finally i was tempted to buy Thesis though was a bit scared if this also proved to have same problems like previous themes and the price tag of $87 seemed too high. But finally i bought it after reading too many reviews and visiting some live sites running on thesis.
Today, i feel happy about that decision. It would have been better if i had decided to buy it much earlier.
You can check my post about the reasons why decided to buy Thesis theme here . ” Why $87 is too less for Thesis Premium WordPress theme“.
Anyway, here i will talk about some of the customizations i did to my site using open hooks plugins for thesis and using some custom functions along with some CSS modifications to suit my site. Here, i would like to clarify, i am novice in CSS, PHP and HTML too. All customisations were done with help of Thesis Forum’s help ,few other guys like and some work by me.
For doing these customisations, you need Open hook plugin for thesis and your custom_functions.php and custom.css files to play with.
