A WordPress version of the Joomla Wheat Template!
Lots of people have been asking if I would convert my Joomla Wheat theme to a WordPress theme.
Well, here it is: bluewheat.zip (version 1.1).
WordPress requires some features which are at odds with the Wheat theme so it hasn’t been accepted into the wordpress repository, but you can download it to your desktop and then upload it into your wordpress dashboard.
The menu just below the header can be set up in the Menu part of wordpress, the other links and so on are set up in the widgets section.
This is the homepage for the Joomla Wheat Template.
The Joomla Wheat template looks like this:

Best Web hosting for Joomla
If you are after a good reliable host to host your Joomla or WordPress site, I recommend bluehost.com
I have been using them now for six years – they are hosting this site you are reading right now. They have been very helpful, when my website got hacked they were able to revert me back to an old copy they had backed up.
Probably the best feature about bluehost is that they have some software called simple script which installs Joomla with one click. Makes everything easy. They are cheap for what they offer too. I’m in Australia and they are in the USA but that’s never been a problem.
The Wheat template has been featured as design of the month for December, 2007 on this German website. They have also chosen it to appear in Joomla for Dummies!
