I’m very excited to be announcing a new WPCandy project called Theme Finder.
A few friends and I built the WordPress Theme Finder to solve a problem of our own. I don’t know about you, but a number of people sort of know me as “the WordPress guy”, at least in my circle. So now and again I’ll be asked to help someone find the right WordPress theme for their new website or project. To find a theme for them, I would pull up a bunch of websites with themes—paid and free themes—and start looking. I would pick any themes I thought might work, and then narrow it down to 5 or so to show my friend.
So that process was pretty tedious, and involved a lot of work on my part. Now, with Theme Finder, that kind of job is a bit easier to tackle.
Now I just open up Theme Finder—it’s at themefinder.wpcandy.com, or you can click the new button in WPCandy’s sidebar. With Theme Finder I have visual access to hundreds of WordPress themes, in one place, and I can sort them by color, by cost, and by layout.
Using Theme Finder
So let’s say I want a blue, three column theme, and I’m not afraid to pay a few bucks. Those themes are going to be highlighted, and now I can scroll through and check them out larger on the theme author’s site.
Then, if I want to try another search, I can hit the reset button and start over again.
Theme Finder solves a problem
We really built this to solve our own problem, but we think it can help others too. Save time, find the perfect theme, and get back to building cool websites.
We’ll be adding more themes (tons more themes) and sorting features over time. If you get a chance, next time you need to find a WordPress theme, try out Theme Finder and let us know if it helps you find a theme.
