WordPress themes are powerful. You can actually build a website for any type of business if you choose the right theme. The custom admin panels, built with versatility in mind, let you customize your website without touching a line of code. How cool is this? You can choose from unlimited skins, create unlimited portfolio pages, sidebars and widgets, make use of hundreds of shortcodes, etc, etc. Still aren`t you convinced?
