Just a quite clarification about WordPress Direct service. We posted a story about Viva7 Theme that has just come out a couple of days ago. This is an absolutely brilliant theme that is a must have for anyone interested in running a magazine style blog. But then, a lot of people got back to me yesterday about WordPress Direct service, and whether theyÂ can use the theme with WordPress Direct. The answer is yes really. WordPress Direct works with your host or a free host, and you can ftp and upload this theme. I do recommend getting developer licenses for a theme that you really like to use on WordPress Direct.
Having said that, you should make sure that you write original content on your blog in addition to eZine articles and other content that WordPress Direct allows you to post automatically to your blogs. You simply don’t want to use such a cool theme just with free public content. But most themes are compatible with WordPress Direct. There are some themes that don’t use WordPress plugins but other than those, everything else is fair game.
