There are a lot of WordPress themes that come out every week. I mean, really. I know, because I just went through them all to put together the post you’re looking at right now.
I’m trying something a bit new today. I’ve rounded up every WordPress theme that I know of that released this week, and presented them in what I think is a logical order. I’m curious to know if this is helpful for you, so if you appreciate this kind of post let me know in the comments.
Just after the jump you’ll find the nearly 40 themes that came out this week: from WordPress.org, indie shops, and marketplaces. Let me know if you find it useful.
Free themes on WordPress.org
Every week a handful of themes are released on WordPress.org. Keep in mind that these themes have been reviewed by the WordPress Theme Review Team, and are going to be reliable in all the ways a proper theme should be.
Museum Core from Chris Reynolds
Sunspot from Automattic
Commercial themes from theme shops
I like calling out commercial themes from shops with their own brand. Technically these cost, just like the ones from marketplaces below, but I think they deserve a bit of extra credit for maintaining their own brand, store, and marketing efforts.
Modest by Jake Caputo at ThemeThrift
ThemeThrift made news this week, as a commercial theme that you can pay whatever you want for. You can even download it free, you jerk.
Trim from Elegant Themes
iKonik from Tokokoo
Dealicious from Tokokoo
mag.Press eCommerce from Obox
ScrollCase from ThemeFurnace
ThemeFurnace launched just this week, and these next four themes are all new this week.
Busine from ThemeFurnace
Perosan from ThemeFurnace
Capiton from ThemeFurnace
ThemeForest and Mojo Themes will bring all sorts of theme qualities. Though the designs can be pretty stellar, there are plenty of reasons to doubt the code quality within. Buyer beware!
Wait, really? InnoTech?
Thoughts on this week’s themes?
A couple of things stood out, as I went through these themes. Lots of business and portfolio themes. Lots of “responsive” marketing. Honestly, it all had me wishing there were more blog themes out there, rather than a lot of these complex business designs. Have you tried out any of these themes yet? If so, share your thoughts in the comments.
If you’re really into WordPress themes (and I think by reading through this list, you qualify) you should check out The Weekly Theme Show podcast that we do weekly (duh) here on WPCandy. We talk about, review, and generally gush over WordPress themes every seven days or so. I hope you’ll check it out.
