Which has unique features like 15+ Different and Unique Blog Templates, Import/Export, Revise, edit and reorganize your blog page, Live Preview, Custom Post Type Support, Fully Customizable Admin Interface. You can check it here http://goo.gl/Qpkgpt

    I would go with Monarch with Elegant Themes. You can network activate or install and not network activate and use per subsite. It works great, is modern, had good features, and most importantly (at least high on the list) it will not slow down your site.

  14. Kedarsan sahoo

    Hi, This is great and the best list I’ve seen! I’m specifically trying to find a widget or plugin that displays a social icon with total play counters (NOT fans or followers) for music related social media sites Soundcloud, Mixcloud, ideally both. I have found a few that display fans or followers, but none for total plays which I find strange. Do you know of a plugin or widget that does this? Thanks…

  18. Vikas Mishra

    I am Trying but SocialBox – Social Counter WordPress Widget plugin is not showing the counter of Social Media Followers number on website. How can i do that and I want not only social icon but also number of counts of the follower of the same.

  19. Riki
