Do You Like Boating Websites?

Ask The Boater

The Fresh News Theme from Woo Themes can be used in many different ways. Ask The Boater is a blog that loves boats! Written from French Bay (Clayton, NY) in the 1000 Islands the goal is to bring you resources, interesting information and fun items to improve your boating experience. Boat sightings is at the top of the list, and they will gladly show a picture of your boat if you want to send them one!

The theme has been customized, tweaked, upgraded and knocked into shape both by myself and my client who has learned a great deal about how the theme works and how to make changes herself. Showing larger featured posts at the top of the blog, showing the boats in detail in an image gallery, and even free boat wallpapers, the site has everything boat lovers could want.

Woo Themes have a variety of “premium” themes, and the Fresh News theme has a variety of options. Features include:

  • Three homepage layouts to choose from
  • The ability to use Fresh News as a traditional blog layout
  • Extended Author Profiles
  • Integrated Theme Options (for WordPress) to tweak the layout, colour scheme etc. for the theme
  • Built-in video panel, which you can use to publish any web-based Flash videos
  • Automatic Image Resizer, which is used to dynamically create the thumbnails and featured images
  • Custom Page Templates for Archives, Sitemap & Image Gallery
  • Built-in Gravatar Support for Authors & Comments;
  • Integrated Banner Management script to display randomized banner ads of your choice site-wide
  • Pretty dropdown navigation everywhere
  • Widgetized Sidebars
  • 8 gorgeous colour schemes!

I’ll be showing you some other blogs based on the Fresh News theme in the coming weeks. In the meantime if you love boats, check out Ask The Boater.
