WordPress Development Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for WordPress developers and administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Trying to figure out if there are any themes out there I could use to create a dashboard web site. (basically want to create something to point to all the ancillary services I use - backup, analytics, stock images, web host, etc.)

It is practically impossible to Google an answer - because once you use the term dashboard along with Wordpress every result refers to the Wordpress admin dashboard (whereas I'm just looking to create a site/page)

Anyone know of a dashboard-style theme?

Close-voted as not a real question: "It's difficult to tell what is being asked here. This question is ambiguous, vague, incomplete, overly broad, or rhetorical and cannot be reasonably answered in its current form." For one, a "dashboard-style site" is overly vague; and for another, WordPress can be used for just about any type of site design that displays managed content. –  Chip Bennett Apr 12 '12 at 16:02
    
It's also a shopping question, hence my close vote –  Tom J Nowell Apr 12 '12 at 16:22
    
In case anyone ever wanders back in here...I finally found what I meant to ask for - they are called "Start Page" sites. Symbaloo.com is the one I decided on...but just searching for start page sites will get you lots of options. –  Larry Jul 17 '12 at 4:51

You might want to head over to Themeforest.net and browse their wide selection of themes until you find something that's modular like.

Otherwise you could create a very simple theme your self as I assume you're going to be pulling in data from either RSS or API calls. You could effectively create the exact layout you want. This is what I have done as I didn't want any unnecessary, non-specific items associated with such ancillary services.

Hint: Look for Pinterest style themes or themes which make use of jQuery/Masonry layouts.

You've tagged your question as wordpress.com, which means you're limited to the themes that WordPress.com has installed.

If you wish to install a different theme you must setup wordpress on your own server, otherwise feel free to browse the selection of themes provided.

Sorry...the wordpress.com tag was a mistake. Corrected in original post. –  Larry Apr 12 '12 at 15:35

Ah then in that case, this is a 'shopping question' or a 'guessing game' for which there are rules for stack exchange sites. –  Tom J Nowell Apr 12 '12 at 16:21
