Default Customizable Wordpress themes?

Hi,

I am trying to set up a wordpress blog for a friend of mine. I designed the website for him. but I have never done a wordpress blog from scratch. I like the rounded edges of the them called ROUNDED I think it is....but I am not sure if I can customize it as much as I need to. For instance I can not get the main color of the background to change from white.

So what I am looking for...

Something that I can chance the header, the colors, and use an ecommerce plug-in, and can be updated from a smart phone.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

P.S. I am doing this for a friend for free, so have mercy )

Thanx in advance!

The only theme I know of that will keep the rounded corners and give you the flexibility you need is Headway, and it's a premium theme. I think it's $68 for the cheapest package, I know you're doing it for free and I can understand your pain, but without a lot of coding (that you'd have to pay for anyway) you're not going to get what you want... and that's what I hate about themes! I finally broke down and bought Thesis and Headway for client sites.

I'll look around and see if there's anything else I can find.

check out the themes at studiopress.com, there is one called prose that is easy to customize. I've used it in the past.

You can change the color of the background in wordpress by looking under Appearance then clicking on Background.

Also there is many custom themes that's already setup for ecommerce just tell me what niche you are looking for like cell phones, computers, books etc...

Thanx all..

The site is for a Sunflower oil company, they are not wanting to sell online at this moment, but I want to pick out a theme that is ecommerce ready. I keep forgetting to check and see what the one I was trying is called...rounded I think.

Are all themes capable of ecommerce,,,and is making them updatable via cell phone, just a matter of a plugin, or do I have to choose a specfic theme for this purpose as well?

I really like Atahualpa. It's the most customizable free theme I've found - you can change just about everything without having to do any coding.

Customizing Wordpress theme would depend on the template you use for the layout. I'd say choose the simple templates. Perhaps, Atahualpa can do much better on customization.

hmmm... I'd go for atahualpa or suffusion. They're the most customizable themes in my opinion. Can change almost everything. For mobile, install wptouch plugin.
