Nick Roach of Elegant Themes posted a poll last week asking his users what sort of theme the shop should produce next. A number of options were voted on (see the full results) but top of the heap was “business CMS” theme with 277 votes, which was 17% of the vote total.
In Roach’s analysis of the results he found the voting predictable, despite complaints he says he hears:
The 1,600+ votes cast gives me a good idea as to what types of themes are in demand, and the many comments/suggestions given were great to see…
To me it was no surprise that Business CMS received the most votes. Despite some complaints that we already have too many CMS-style designs, it’s obvious from our internal stats that these themes are in demand and continually receive the most downloads.
Business themes are certainly popular. After all, nearly every major commercial theme shop has a few of them. Do you think more business themes are needed in the WordPress community? If you had your word in a theme poll like the one Elegant Themes ran, what sort of theme would you vote for?
