One of the powerful features of WordPress is the use of custom themes.  Themes give you additional control over WordPress that may not be available out-of-the-box.  Not all themes give you the control and ability to perform the search engine optimizations (SEO) you need to rank in the search engines.  This is why I use The Thesis 2 Theme for WordPress.  Thesis 2 has taken the concept of WordPress themes to the next level.  Not only does Thesis 2 retain the excellent SEO features of the prior versions but it also re-imagines the interface for customizing a website.  Once you understand how to use Thesis 2 HTML, CSS, packages, and boxes you will ask yourself why you didn’t start using Thesis 2 sooner.
