In researching WordPress themes I find that the X Theme from ThemeForest.org is well-regarded, relatively easy to use, and very flexible in terms of resulting public facing website design / capability.

My question for the CiviCRM community is: Does anyone out there have experience using WordPress / X Theme as a basis for implementing and running CiviCRM to provide integrated constituent management with a public facing website (that supports a not-for-profit organization)?

I've done the usual searches and so far turned up nada; so thanks for any insights that you can share with me (and this community).

If we go forward with this approach, I'll document it the same way I have documented the (successful) implementation of TLS secured Ubuntu / LAMP / WordPress / CiviCRM on Amazon Web Services.

Thanks for any insights you can provide.


  • I suspect the answer is "no." CiviCRM works with most themes, so I'd suggest you go ahead and try it.

  • Coleman, thanks for your comment. We're not sure yet which theme we will use, but X is looking interesting.

  • We've been entertaining a switch from Salient to X because of a problem with some renderings, primarily on the "Manage Events -> Online Registration" bit. I believe it was related to the "bootstrap" issues, as talked about here: civicrm.stackexchange.com/questions/7885/… I thought I had another thread where this had been discussed, but I can't seem to find it now. X didn't seem to exhibit the same behavior.

  • Oops. Actually, it was the backbone. classes causing issues.

I have noticed some quirks with how it handles the wp_enqueue_media function. when we disabled that core function, some of the functionality started working. I am still trying to figure it out.
