20 Themes To Choose From


For most of you, has become your number one source for new WordPress theme releases. Since Keith introduced the small thumbnail previews and demo links, theme posts seem to be better liked by our audience. I appreciate Keith’s attention to detail and look forward to his regular theme and plugin posts.

Smashing Magazine has published an article which highlights at least 20 free WordPress themes to choose from. Some of these themes look as if they could almost be considered premium but they are still free. My personal favorite is 5ThirtyOne while Probama comes in second. Although I’m a little bummed that the article didn’t feature Justin Tadlocks Options theme. I feel that it would have been a nice addition to the post.

At any rate, make sure you read each themes license agreement as they can vary from theme to theme. This is especially true when it comes to using the theme in a commercial environment.

    Awesome list!

    As a themer myself, I find the designs inspiring. Perhaps it’s time I cook up a one-columned theme too :)

    They may want to change Summernight’s demo photo…

    Yes, the Options theme is the best one out there (IMO) – and it keeps on getting better!!

    Yes, I was also surprised that Justin’s Options theme was not included! His designs keep on getting better and better…

    Maybe next time…

    I guess this means I’ll just have to step up my designs a bit. It’ll give me something to work toward.
