Announcing WordPress Thesis Blogussion for Blogger

Due to high demand of WordPress Thesis templates, I thought of converting some popular WordPress Thesis template in to blogger. After five hours of continuous work, finally I have converted WordPress Thesis Blogussion to Blogger. Blogussion for Blogspot Blogger is exact clone of Blogussion Template for WordPress.

Blogussion for Blogger is exactly similar to the original one. No one can easily distinguish between the WordPress thesis theme and your Blogger after you have used this theme. Let’s see what’s featured in new Blogussion for Blogger.

Primary Navigation

Eye catchy navigation by Blogussion still exists for the Blogger Version.

Featured post zone:

You can place any widget in featured post zone. The featured post is less annoying and is visible in every page. Next to it, we’ve three blocks for 125 X 125 ads which was already featured in the original version.

Sidebar as pleasing as in original version

Sidebar section with un-widgetized orange box to focus on your Feeds and subscription links. Below it, we’ve widgetized sidebar with appealing arrangements.

WordPress Like Comments section

The comment section is more customized and very much different from ordinary comments section and exactly reflects the WordPress looks. Add one link to make it more interactive which directly scrolls down to the comment form.

Avatarized Unique Comments

Completely customized comments list which will definitely make your blog look professional and unique. Don’t forget to see the face of the commentor at the right! 🙂

Easy Next Previous Navigation

Navigation is kept in separate box. The link is easily noticeable unlike other Blogger templates. Still you can tweak the Next Previous navigation to Paged navigation.
I have three feets
Three widgetized footer columns. The dark gray and white text over it makes it pleasing to eye and your contents, still is readable.
Footer Copyright notice so beautiful that you don’t want to remove. Please do not remove your footer note. We’ll be happy to see it when we visit your blog.
