    John,

    I am enjoying your interview with Michal Wendrowski. It’s now been five months since you published that interview. Do you still recommend Rublon as highly as you did on this show? In other words, has your belief in it been proven over time?

    John,

    The distinction you made between “pure” themes and and themes which have embedded plugins or other functionality was completely new to me. Thank you. Consequently, your admonition to prefer the former over the latter made complete sense to me. However, can you tell us how to make that distinction when we’re looking for themes. That is, is there a simple way we can know which themes are only themes?

      hi Mike,
      Yes after you install the theme look to see if any new functionality has been added that you might come to depend on such as a slider or specialized widgets. This is usually pretty evident after it is installed or when reviewing their demo site. Or you can look at their list of features for example many theme include SEO features and while mt favourite Genesis has this it actually turns off when you add a plugin some themes do not turn off their SEO if you add a plugin. And any info added into this themes SEO will be lost when the theme is changed.
      Hope that helps.
