    I used Prose to create this http://www.demo3.spark-collaborative.com/

    I also need to incorporate a store, but I found out that WooCommerce/ Genesis connect etc. is not ideal and dances in touching the PHP becuase of Prose’s structure. Cart 66 doesn’t give me the visual layout I am wanting.

    I need a home page with a slider and a place for three footers like Prose to mimic the front page I created. The only other 2 layouts I would need are a full width and a two column (content/sidebar). If this theme could work with woo commerce, that would be bueno too.

    What StudioPress themes would you recommend?

    We have WooCommerce and Cart66 on our network. (We offer managed WP hosting.)

    Among the themes we offer, Clip Cart works with both of those e-commerce solutions. Our demo is running Cart66 at the moment.

    It comes pretty close to what you described.

    Thanks Bill, I saw the Clip Cart and like it. However, I was actually wondering if there were any StudioPress Themes (from the Pro Pack) that would be good. I have purchased the Pro Pack and wished to use something that came with that. Any suggestions?

    Even if your requirements aren’t met by a particular theme, they’re pretty easy modifications. Adding or removing layouts are accomplished by single lines of code. The same is true for setting footer widgets.

    To my mind, there isn’t a perfect fit out of the box that requires no modification. The right choice comes down to which mods you are more comfortable making. For example, Minimum has a full width area that can be widgetized. It can be made 2 column. You can see that in our modified Minimum demo. It’s a good base for what you might want. Agency also would work and will require more work on CSS and less work on widget areas.

    For any of the themes, you’ll have to consider adding widget areas, changing image sizes, creating some page templates, and re-doing some of the CSS to get what you want.

    I would set my priorities as 1) choosing a theme that’s mobile responsive (because that saves you some work making it responsive) and 2) choosing a theme that has widget areas that most closely fits your needs. If you cover those 2 areas, the modifications beyond those should be less work.
