I bought Essence Blank nearly 2 years ago but find it difficult to navigate around mainly because I am not using it every week and soon forget exactly how to get to every option ( Indeed not sure I know all the options).

Would Sales recommend a simpler theme for me where the access is more obvious for occasional users?

Alternatively do you have a regular user in Scotland or UK who could do the job for me for me?

Hi Nigel,

what exactly do you mean? Once the theme is setup, there is not much to do anymore. WordPress (backend) will however have the same navigation and layout, regardless of the theme. Write Post looks the same in every theme, so does Category maintenance, Comments moderation etc.

If you have any questions related to the theme settings (these can all be found in wp-dashboard > My Theme, all other settings are core WordPress) we'll gladly reply and assist.

If this is about the site as it is online, from what I know, Essence is not more complicated than any other theme. But you can always browse around our theme portfolio, and open a demo to testdrive a theme, to see if look and feel fits you better,

I hope that clarifies,
