WordPress versus TypePad: Templates/themes in WordPress

July 15, 2008 Leave a comment

When comparing WordPress and Typepad, the number of themes or templates available is a factor to consider. Both have about the same number of themes, currently around 65. TypePad lists all their variations, totalling 187 different color schemes and themes. WordPress only lists the themes, which you must activate first before you can select a color scheme, if available. As it happens that is only possible in some of the themes. For the most you are stuck with the color scheme that is presented, and I guess for a free tool, you get what you (not) pay for. I haven’t counted them all, because that would mean activating all customizable themes and checking them manually, but my guess is a total of 100 variations in WordPress. Theoretically, if you count all possible header text and background color variations with for example the default Kubrick theme, there are countless variations of course, but I would not count themes with simply different header colors as a “different” themes.

Some annoying things about TypePad: Changing your theme

Both TypePad and WordPress have many templates to choose from. As of writing this post, WordPress comes with 67 different templates or design themes. TypePad has about the same, but it looks more, since most themes come ready in different colors; I counted more than 180 different variations based on 65 themes. In WordPress, only some themes come with customizable colors, so it’s difficult to count how many variations there actually are there. That aside, choosing and previewing a theme is much better in WordPress than in TypePad.
