    Great theme guys! I will like to dissect the theme from the inside out to learn some fine theme design from Templamatic :o)


  • Donnie, September 16, 2008

    i would like to use this template for a vegetarian recipe blog.

  • Paul, September 16, 2008

    What a great looking theme. I think I could use that for the photo blog I’m working on.

  • Ashwin, September 16, 2008

    A nice professional looking theme. It’s a long since I’ve updated my blog’s theme. Planning to use this if I win.

  • Sonali Agrawal, September 16, 2008

    Wow….This is a wonderful theme. I would definitely use it for my husband’s blog, because his blog is lacking the kind of attention it wants.

  • Nat, September 16, 2008

    Alright, I admit it. I’d like to use this for personal reasons. Maybe that’s selfish. But I’m trying to start a career in design, having trouble finding a job, and I think a blog would look REALLY cool to employers if linked to my portfolio! :)

  • pablopabla, September 17, 2008

    Hey Steven,

    Do you think this theme would be a perfect fit for my site? If yes, I want it! :D

    …but it sure requires lots of tweaking to suit my stuffs :P

  • Mel Ndiweni, September 17, 2008

    We just got contracted to do a lot of work for a south african aid agency, I would use the theme to document the trip etc and show people how to get involved.

  • Rich Hill, September 17, 2008

    With Style is A real handsome design that concentrates on the Blog message without blasting the reader with unrelated ads.

    Once their attention is gained they have to scroll all the way down through the previous postings to use any of the site navigation indexes.

    Very nice design and I can think of several product sites that I could use this on.
    Thanks for the opportunity.

  • Shanna, September 17, 2008

    What a nice little contest.. thanks Steven! I would actually use it for our chiropractor’s website. You see, years ago, my hubby used a lamo template for our chiro’s site, and I didn’t realize until recently that he but my link at the bottom. :-x It’s horrendous looking and desperately needs a makeover. If that’s not reason enough… when you google my site name, it’s one of the first designed sites to show up. sigh.

  • gstratt, September 17, 2008

    Would love to use this for an author friend of mine who has recently been published!

  • Icyone2, September 17, 2008

    I would love this theme for a new recycling site I am building

  • Ian, September 17, 2008

    This is a well-designed theme. I wouldn’t mind using it for my site. It’s unfortunate I hadn’t found it sooner. It’s not too dark… just the right amount of contrast. I typically prefer very light web site themes and design, so this is a theme that pulls off a nice compromise.

  • Raju, September 17, 2008

    Wow!! its a real funky but equally professional looking theme. I would love to have it for my present blog. It would be a dream come true for sure!!! Such a be-fitting name – “With Style!”

  • Pat, September 17, 2008

    That theme would be perfect for my blog! Right now i am just using a generic free template and could really use the update!

  • Jason, September 17, 2008

    I found a link on my website on one of your posts, and now I find a chance to win a free template ! This place is heaven !!

    Many thanks for all these wonderful posts … I keep digging to find more and more cool stuff.

    Oh and by the way, I am from Quebec, Canada, and I usually speak french (sorry for all my mistakes). I would be really glad to win this template because mine is not so cool and I have so much work to do that I can’t give much love to my blog … you know, He’ll be really happy to have a new design !!


  • Ovidiu, September 17, 2008

    I’d like to use With Style for a Linux community site redesign. It looks too slick to be true! :)

  • Amber Case, September 17, 2008

    Thanks for hosting this contest.
    I’ve been considering WP-Remix for a large site on Cyborg Anthropology. I’ve been collecting resources, papers, and individuals in the industry for a period of 4 years and am researching a method with which to adequately present them online.

    I’ve been using WordPress for a few years and would like to take my current site to a new level. I’ve also used Drupal, but it would be great to have a resource site that has theories and success patterns that could help others succeed online. This template looks like a great one to have fun with.

  • ümit, September 17, 2008

    I like premium themes. :D

  • raul, September 17, 2008

    I love that theme! It is one mix between smart and good taste. Really original, thanks

  • Michael Clark, September 17, 2008

    I would use it to move my personal web site ( ) away from its ancient table-based layout into a CSS based layout. Luckily I’ve already moved a lot of the site into WordPress.

  • sundyme, September 17, 2008

    I’ll be the winner,haha! It’s so nice a theme!

  • Nathan Chapman, September 18, 2008

    Hey. Very nice, very snazzy.
    I’d like to use this theme for a website that will be used to:
    1. Help me fund my school trip to Borneo
    2. Provide funds for the people over there (anything raised by the site will be split 65/35 – people/me)
    3. Publisice our trip until we go, and then document it both while I’m on the trip and when I get back

    Thanks, Nathan.

  • Tony Nicholas, September 18, 2008

  • EmmaB, September 18, 2008

    My email is digitalworldbaby[AT]

    I want that theme because it just looks so awesome! I have a blog that is in need of a makeover and I think this id the perfect theme for it!

  • SE7EN, September 18, 2008

    I don’t win the last competition I hope I’ll be lucky this time hehe.
    May I copy my own comment from last time? lol

    I use my current theme since I started the blog on New Year.
    This theme is similar style to my current theme.
    Big date on the left, footer widget, 2-column, right-sidebar.
    but It’s still refreshing to change the theme.

    although it’s similar but I love this style so I want it! (Is it called grunge style?)

    After reading other people’s comments I don’t think my comment’ll be manually picked because I blog is just a personal blog that not very useful.
    So I will pray on luck. :D

    p.s. I forgot that I have an account on Templamatic when it free WPViddler theme promotional period.

  • Cadu de Castro Alves, September 18, 2008

    My blog is offline. It can be a good chance to come back WITH STYLE.

  • Dainis Graveris, September 19, 2008

    I would like to get premium template because as always I haven’t got enough time to create my own and I am not really so good at it. I want to start new blog for my school-mates, so we could easily exchange infromation about lessons, problems – to create somewhat similar community site but just for our course for now. I think it’s very unselfish task, so I would be happy, if I could get my hands on the premium theme. Thank You for giving such a chance at all!

  • umair, September 22, 2008

    i am going to buy this theme any way insha-allah. better if you give it to me free.

  • Craig, September 22, 2008

    I would love to start my blog beginning with style :)

  • Gopi, September 23, 2008

    Wow, Thats the coooooooolest theme I ever saw.
    First of all, thank you for the contest.
    I dont want to speak lies to win the theme.
    I want this theme because

    First of all, I cant afford to buy premium themes. I have website but I use a free theme, which every one’s using. If I get this theme, my blog will look unique(completely).
    Secondly, I like the theme, so so much
    I dont know who created the theme, we have to appreciate his creativity. I want to the theme very very hardly.The work is professional.

    I dont have much to say, I just want to win the theme and use it right away. Now itself.

    If I win this theme, I will be a lucky person.

    Thank you for the contest once again.
    I hope I will win the contest.

  • Sandy Chiropractic, April 18, 2009

    Alright, I admit it. I’d like to use this for personal reasons. Maybe that’s selfish. But I’m trying to start a career in design, having trouble finding a job, and I think a blog would look REALLY cool to employers if linked to my portfolio
