Today I review two wordpress themes that are sports related, but could easily be tweaked to be a great network site. Both themes are (basically) $40. The LeaguePress theme can be as low as $9. Here are some features:
The both are responsive and have built in advertising spots. They both have multiple menus and built in social media links (although Game day has a much better setup for this).
What I liked about the Game day theme is it seems a bit customizable (please note I do not own either of these and have only watched video demos). The very cool looking scoreboard on game day is optional. This means you could turn it off.
I've been asked at times, "Why didn't you set up a website for your very own podcast "network." For the record, I have a website for each show and didn't want to additional maintenance. I could see taking a project with different subjects and making each subject a "League" where each league would have a link at the top of the page. Each league would also have a section on the front page. I was really impressed with the look of Game Day, and while I realize that League Press could be a much smaller hit to the wallet, I think I would go with Game Day.
