So far I haven’t had a chance to talk about the reasons for the redesign here at wpliving.net, so in this video I take a look at what drew me to the new theme I’m using, which is called the deTube WordPress Theme and it’s entirely devoted to video.

This video could be of interest to anyone looking for a decent and flexible WordPress video theme. After having trawled the Web for suitable themes, I was left with really just a handful of themes that I thought were actually usable. DeTube was one of them.

The key things I like about the theme are the following:

  • Front page modular layout = lots of flexibility to organize content.
  • Front page carousel = highlights the latest content in a clear and interactive way.
  • Single post view = really brings the video content “alive”, presenting it against a dark background.
  • Simple admin options = the theme is not cluttered. It has just the right amount of options for my needs.
  • Custom widgets = I like the fact that attention has been give to adding extra functionality to the theme via custom widgets; in particular the stats widget, categories, tags and archives.

Watch the video for more insight into the theme and let me know what you think about the redesign. Does it work for you? What could be done to make the theme better? Do you use a WordPress video theme? If so which one and what has your experience been in using it? Thanks as always for watching.
