Description

Hi - I did some research and came up with five possible premium themes for The Commons Classified site:

• “Classified Theme” by Premium WordPress Themes – now for $79 – regularly $199.00 http://classifiedstheme.com/wordpress-classifieds-theme/
• “Classified Engine Theme” by DailyWP - $79.00 http://www.dailywp.com/classified-engine-theme/
• “WordPress Classified Ads Theme” by SiteMile - $79.00 - http://sitemile.com/products/wordpress-classified-ads-theme/
• “Classipress” by AppThemes - http://www.appthemes.com/themes/classipress/
• “Classified” by Templatic - http://templatic.com/app-themes/classifieds

I think Boone wanted to look at/evaluate their merits and suggest one to purchase.

Thanks.

Putting in a milestone so that it doesn't get lost. Subject to change. Will examine these themes soon.

Thanks very much for doing this initial research, Scott.

After doing a bit of review of the themes (or at least their promotional materials, since none make the source code readily available), I'm going to recommend ClassiPress by AppThemes. The main reason is that they are explicit about keeping their content in custom post types, which means that the content created by this theme can be easily migrated, exported, backed up, and potentially reused for other purposes in the future (including integration with BuddyPress). It also looks like it's among the fullest featured, especially with the very nice looking user dashboard (where one can track submitted and watched items).
