Having a truly professional WordPress theme for you website or blog can really make a difference. ElegantThemes, one of my favorite WordPress theme developers, have created The Professional and I think is many ways it lives up to its name. It is clearly not a typical blog theme and it is designed to fit clean and elegant business websites very well. It is a page based theme and while there is a nice blog template in the package it is not the main purpose. The effort needed to create a theme like this is serious and higher than creating just a blog template. Further The Professional have four different color schemes. Reason is mainly that there is just a lot more useful page templates to be created, and it is time consuming. In this article I will review The Professional WordPress theme in detail – a really interesting theme for a demanding web site and one of the best WordPress premium themes available. Check out the demo site and see for your self!

Professional WordPress Theme Review
Let’s start with a look at the front page. Clearly the goal for it is simplicity and the ability to focus on a few important messages and get them across.
The slider is pretty advanced and looks awesome I think. The slider menu at the right appears when mouse hovers over the slider.
Professional WordPress Theme offers a set of really unique and useful page templates. Below you can see some of them and of course you can try them all out on their site. As you can see it can be used for building a portfolio and belongs to the category of WordPress gallery themes.
Another example of a page template with also some real features is the advanced search.
In particular I like The Professional WordPress Theme sitemap page template as it gives visitors a good overview of all the ways to access your content.
Professional WordPress Theme is not called Professional for no reason. Looking at the shortcodes arsenal almost takes your breath away. It is simply impressive what you can add to you site without doing any coding. You get access to add buttons, content boxes, sliders, tabs, author boxes, text columns, prizing tables and much more. I have added a screenshot showing them all below.
Even though main focus is not the blog page theme, I must say that in most cases setting up a blog to interact with potential customers is critical. Therefore it is great to find that the blog in The Professional WordPress theme look really good.
