It can pretty tough to decide whether to invest in premium WordPress themes or just simply stick with the free WordPress themes. It is because most of us have the perception of premium WordPress themes are always better than the free WordPress themes in terms of designs especially.
However, for today post, I’m going to proof that the perception is baseless. I will show that there are actually a lot of awesome free WordPress themes. You are going to impress with the free themes that I have found for this post.
What you need is actually a little effort to look for the free themes and you will find awesome free WordPress themes which sometimes ‘hidden’ among billions of websites out there.
No worries because I have helped to find the themes. You just need to decide which one that suits you best.
So, enjoy the 55 Most Wanted Free WordPress Themes You Should Grab!
For the last couple of months, I have share a lot of WordPress themes for online store as base on my observation, WordPress themes developers have started to develop more WordPress themes which outside the scope of magazine/blog styling to focus on more advanced WordPress themes such as online store, portfolio site, micro-blogging and Q&A site like Yahoo! Answers.
For example, WooThemes start to develop few WordPress themes such as Retreat and Cinch that will make your WordPress blog works like Tumblr which will come with iPhone app to make it easier for you to update your blog and share what is happening around you straight away.
And for ShopperPress which comes with the $79 price tag, has developed a really good WordPress theme for online store which I think the best among other online store WordPress themes. It is because Shopperpress is jam-packed with great features and comes with 23 great templates that come for free.
Among features that you will fall in love are:
- Sales Analysis & Tracking – You can view newly placed orders and exporting sales & customer data for use in a spreadsheet or QuickBooks.
- Inventory and Promotions - ShopperPress includes full inventory control, order management for viewing newly placed orders, “Out of Stock” Messages and discount coupon codes for gift certificates. It has also built in price variable options such as “buy 1 get 1 free” and a fixed cost mark-up on the entire store prices.
- Security – ShopperPress is a secure online system that supports hundreds of extra security plugins for WordPress as well as HTTPS/SSL secure page.
For today post, I would like to share 14 Shopper templates which have the best look from all 23 templates which are available for you to choose from.
Camera shopper is a very popular shopping cart theme for selling electronic products online such as TV’s and cameras.
This theme is popular among the animal lovers, this shopping cart theme is ideal for selling all sort of animal and pet products online.
I am pretty sure that most of us have heard about ThemeForest as it is the biggest marketplace for website templates and CMS themes especially for WordPress. There are actually 610 WordPress themes for you to choose from at extremely reasonable price ($40 at most) for the quality that you will get.
However, one thing that you probably don’t know is ThemeForest is the first place you should visit if you are looking for WordPress themes that out of ordinary and have new features that most of WordPress theme developers don’t offer.
One of the examples is the usage of CU3BER. At the moment, there is no other premium WordPress developers have used such great and awesome 3D slider tool except those in ThemeForest marketplace. Most of them still ‘stuck’ with the boring 2D slider.
Another example is ThemeForest is the first place where WordPress Theme with ‘one-page’ concept first introduced which I love so much. In case you have no idea what is the ‘one-page’ concept, you can check out the Shape Shifter and SOFA theme below. From these WordPress themes, you will get the idea on what is the ‘one-page’ concept is all about.
So, for this post, I would like to share with you top 30 WordPress Themes from ThemeForest from the 610 WordPress themes collection which I regard as the best among the best. I am actually impressed how great and well-built these themes. I am sure you will too.
Hyperion is clean and stylish WordPress theme well suited for any business, portfolio, blogger, or anyone needing a beautiful website.
Minimalista is an Ajax WordPress theme, best suited for a professional and minimalist portfolio. It comes with 6 colors skins, and one custom file to put easily your own colour.
It can be really boring to have WordPress blogs that look like others especially in terms of design. Some of us including me can spent couple hours for the sake of looking WordPress theme that is not only looking good but unique.
One of my favorite types of WordPress themes is hand drawn WordPress theme. It is totally out of the box, looks great and creative plus it will make our WordPress blog looks more unique as compared to others.
In case you have missed my previous post, I have reviewed Left Handed, the first full hand drawn WordPress theme which is from Obox Design. However, if you have missed the post, you can check it out through below link.
Now, there is another full hand drawn WordPress theme which I suspect the second of its type. However, for this time it is not from Obox Design but Elegant Themes. It is called OnTheGo.
OnTheGo comes with 5 elements that make it a great and well-functioning WordPress theme. They are:
Optional Blog Structure - Let you to use your WordPress as a normal blog as in default, the theme will be set your WordPress to be a CMS with a Page-Based structure.
Automated Thumbnail Resizing – Thumbnail plays crucial role for WordPress blog as it brings color to WordPress. With this feature, you do not need to resize your image to make the thumbnail feature to work.
In Depth Theme Option – This element is the most important thing that a WordPress should have as it helps WordPress bloggers especially those who have limited knowledge in web development to personalize their WordPress theme.
Advertising Management – There will be some point which we feel that we want to monetize our WordPress blog. With this feature, bloggers do not have to install external plugin. Your ad can be taken care from your theme option page.
4 unique color scheme – OnTheGo comes with 4 different color schemes which will give you some alternative in the color scheme of your WordPress blog.
Below are few screenshots from the theme.
My Verdict: OnTheGo Hand Drawn WordPress Theme – Yes or no?
Looks great right? The only thing that I think it should be better is the size and type of font that is being used. Personally, I don’t like the theme that uses small font especially. I love the size and the font of Huzzer Magazine. How about you?
The best part of this theme is that it is developed by Elegant Themes. That means, the cost of having one is pretty cheap as you only have to pay $19.95 per year and you will entitle to only this theme but all of themes from Elegant Themes including support.
Pretty good offer right?
If you are interested in knowing more about OnTheGo or want to buy this theme straight away, you may find below links to be handy.
Your Verdict: Left-Handed or OnTheGo?
Internet nowadays plays a really important role for the success musicians and bands. It is because those who are the target customers spend most of their time in the internet and prefer to download songs from the internet instead of have to go to music to store to get the latest album from their favorite singers.
* For your information on how big is the market for music industry in the online world:
While consumers bought more than a billion individual digital tracks in the United States, which accounts for a majority of online sales worldwide, they bought only 65 million digital albums in 2008.
Therefore, it is totally a waste to ignore this new environment for the music industry as if they (record labels and musicians) fail to cope with the change, they may lost in the battle with others who actively involved and built their present in the online world.
Among those who have succeeded to integrate in music with online world is ITunes and Radiohead.
For ITunes, in has managed to sell 9.9 billion songs from early 2003 to early 2009 which accounting for 70% of worldwide online digital music sales base on Wikipedia.
On the other hand, Radiohead switched their marketing strategy by letting their fans to set their own price they would like to pay for Radiohead’s latest album, In Rainbow through online site. Then only, the band had the physical release of the album. The result – more than three million copies of the album were distributed in the first year, in digital and physical formats plus the album still made more money than either of the band’s previous two records.
So, if you are a musician or looking for WordPress themes that will help you to build website for musician, you will definitely happy with the themes that you are going to show you. For me, all the themes below looks great and will definitely suit for those who are planning to make website for musician through WordPress platform.
Pop Life 56
Pop Life 76
Pop Life 84
Do you have anything else to add?
Do you know if there are still WordPress themes that you think will suit for musician? I am sure that I may have missed few of themes. It would be great if you can share them over here?
And, how about the above themes? Is there any theme that you think will not suit for those who are planning to use it as website for musician?
I would love to hear feedback.
For those who knows Mark Fail, will definitely impress by him as he has developed many great WordPress themes especially ShopperPress, an online store WordPress theme. Base on m observation, basically Mark Fail’s WordPress themes design is more toward commercial website and tries not to have blog elements in the themes he created.
And to expand his portfolio in as WordPress theme developer, he has acquired an Classifieds WordPress theme and have totally redesigned the theme and make it looks unique and commercial as the theme originally looks identical to WpClassipress, pioneer in classifieds WordPress theme.
What do you think about this redesigned classifieds WordPress theme? Pretty cool and has the commercial looking right? If there is a WordPress blog uses this theme and I have not been told it is actually a WordPress blog, there is no way that I have any clue about the site is using WordPress to create such great looking online classifieds site.
The good site…
The good site of this WordPress theme is it come with 5 templates that you can choose from and it is well built with features that will you help to deal with Google as the this online classifieds WordPress theme is well integrated with Google Analytics, Google Adsense and Google Webmaster tool.
Instead of just Paypal, you can also have other method of payments if you decide to make paid online classifieds site instead of free. Classifieds Theme is built in with many different payment gateways allowing you to access different type of credit, debit and bank transfer payments on your shopping cart website.
The best part is the cost for you to have such great WordPress theme is pretty low for the features that this online classifieds site has to offer. This will only cost you $79 if you buy it right now as the original price is $179. This offer is only available for limited time.
You can buy this theme or check out the demo through below links:
The bad side…
Everything in this world comes in pair. If there is good side, there will definitely bad side.
Unfortunately, the bad side of this theme is also the good side that I have just mentioned i.e. the 5 templates. Although it can give alternative to the users, I expect better design in terms of color scheme and better Featured Ad section.
You will know what I am trying to say with below images of all 5 templates.
Personally, I think only the first template that looks great and for the others, they are unacceptably dull and boring. To be honest, I prefer the design of the theme under the previous owner. I’m not sure what has gone wrong with Mark Fail on this project as for his other projects, they are look awesome and well designed.
What do you think?
For the Featured ad section, I think the problem is the type of font that is being used. It doesn’t look great and suit the theme. I think if other font is being used, the look and feel of this section will radically improve.
Will you buy this theme?
What do you think about the theme? Will you buy one if you are planning to have online classifieds site? For me, I will not as I believe that there is better option. How about you?
For the past few months, I have posted reviews about couple WordPress online store themes as at that time, it is pretty tough to look for WordPress online store theme that has decent design and theme structures. This probably due to the fact it can be pretty tough and has pretty steep learning curve.
Having online store now, is easy!
However, for the last few weeks, I just discovered that there are actually a lot of WordPress online store themes that we do not have any clue of their existence. Maybe, it is probably due to the theme developers, themselves. Although they are good in developing good WordPress theme, it is no necessary that they are good in marketing too.
There are also couple nice looking WordPress themes that have just been launched that still get a lot of attention yet.
WordPress online store themes you will love
So, for this post, I think it would be a great idea to make a list post about the WordPress online store themes as most of us will definitely want to know all the great themes that can help them to set up online store in easy and cheaper way.
It would be great if you can share this list to anyone that you know that need or planning to set up online store for their business.
By the way, for this list, I have categorized the themes into premium and free themes.
Premium WordPress Online Store Themes
ShopperPress is the most advanced WordPress online store theme as it has a lot of features that other WordPress online theme doesn’t have. The features are more towards the expensive online store software and not using the simplicity concept of WordPress.
The advanced features that you will get are ‘Amazon, Ebay, Datafeedr Import Tools’ and ‘CSV Product Import Options’.
The Furniture Shop
The Furniture Shop is developed by Sarah Neuber and for me; it is the prettiest WordPress online store themes. The structure and design is amazing. When I see the theme, it is so relaxing.
The feature that I love most is the Magic Zoom which when you hover your mouse on the product pictures, it will automatically zoom without any unacceptable lagging or delays. This feature is almost the same with the feature that you can find in Topman’s online store.
The Clothes Shop
This WordPress online store theme is also developed by Sarah Neuber which means it has the same features with The Furniture Shop.
However, The Clothes Shop has been designed in a way that it will perfectly suit for those who are planning to have online clothes shop. It is because there is feature which will show picture of the front part of our products i.e. clothes and when we hover our mouse over the picture, it will give us view from the back.
This WordPress online store is developed by Templatic. This WordPress theme is pretty basic but it still has the features of an online store.
In the front page, there is image slider for your featured products. It can be handy as you can use it as tool to promote products that give you a lot of returns and give some exposure for less popular but have huge potential products.
This WordPress online theme focuses on making the online store to be simple and easy. Customers can straight away view the products that we are offering by clicking the slider that is situated on the tight hand side. The can also view product without have to click the slider by clicking on the products’ links located besides the slider.
You can also have blog for the online store which can help you to build closer relationship with your customers.
eGoods is the first WordPress online store theme that is developed by Sarah Neuber. In terms of design, it is pretty basic and unfortunately, the color scheme that is being used was badly chosen as it is pretty dull and unattractive.
Free WordPress Online Store Themes
Simplecart (js) is a really good looking free WordPress online store theme. This online store is based on one page online store concept to make the process to be straight forward and fast for your customers.
In my opinion, this theme will only work effectively if it is being used for a limited number of products. It won’t look good if the page is lengthy.
Appcloud is another simple free WordPress online store theme. The main feature of the online store theme is the image slider which covers almost half of the main page. It can work great for you if the products that you want to sell have designs that your visitors would like to see closer and clearly.
However, if you want more features, you can get those by purchasing the premium theme of Appcloud.
WordPress Store gained a lot of attentions from WordPress communities and pretty popular free WordPress online store theme. It is because it is the first WordPress online store theme that has shopping cart and have been integrated with Paypal. It was developed when others still busy using WordPress blog for blogging.
Other than the cuteness of this free WordPress online store theme, this theme cannot offer you much. There are still other themes that are better in terms of design and structure.
How mind blowing these themes are?
What do you think about the themes that I have listed above? Do the theme look great? In case if you have tried any of the above themes, would you mind to share your experience and thought?
