Hello,

Template: http://www.wpchamp.com/theme-gallery/business-sense/

Example Site: http://www.iepdoc.nl

Site we want to use this template for: www.thewealthymind(dot)com

How does this template work? It says 3 widgetized areas. Does that mean the home page is all widgets? How do you edit widgetized areas?

How does this template work?

Same way all themes work. You download it, upload the zip file via Appearance | Themes and activate it.  I will say that the linked theme doesn't look all that special and you should probably save your $25 and just modify TwentyTen or TwentyEleven.

It says 3 widgetized areas. Does that mean the home page is all widgets?


Very unlikely with only three "widgetized areas"  Typically I would take that to mean that there is a side bar area, a header area, and a footer area with some minor variations from theme to theme.  The Dutch site you link to doesn't appear to be a widgetized home page either...the content area under the word Agenda looks like a standard WordPress "show X posts on front page" thing.  I would expect to see a lot more discrete areas in that main content section if this was a widget-based page.

The caveat to the above is that it is sometimes very hard to tell from just looking at a page.  You need to get into the backend to be 100% sure.

How do you edit widgetized areas?

By adding, configuring, reordering, and removing widgets but I'm fairly sure you are asking something else here.  Care to expand?

I guess to answer your final question, do you see any obstacles to transferring thewealthymind(dot)com to this template?

Not really.  It's a vanilla layout and the content doesn't look to be all that complex.
