I'm looking to purchase a WordPress theme and use it primarily for forums.  I've looked through all your theme and none come out-of-the-box with forum design or functionality.

1.)  Are there iTheme templates that come come with WordPress forum functionality built-in?
2.)  If not, can purchase a theme and then have iTheme customize it for a forum (with additional cost of course)?

Thank you.

1. our WordPress themes are (like most themes) "just" a skin for a WordPress site. They do not contain specific functionality. If you want to add a forum to your WordPress site, rather than re-inventing the wheel, you may want to use a WordPress plugin, such as these free ones simplepress or bbpress.

2. Once you have (purchased) a theme, and installed and configured a forum, yes, you can contact our creative services department to customise it.

hope that helps,
