12 Free TwentyTen Child Themes For WordPress

TwentyTen child themes have been popping up everywhere and many theme designers are offering them for free. Child themes will soon have a designated place in the WordPress theme directory. One strong benefit of using TwentyTen as a parent theme is that you’ll always be able to update the basic framework without breaking your design. Check out a few of the free child themes listed here to see what’s possible when building on TwentyTen.

  1. Thank you so much for this theme (Tujuh). I could cry I am so elated that I have found one that I LOVE!!!!!! I will donate to your cause :) Thank you…Thank you….!

  2. Would be amazing if you could link through to the theme demos – the preview image alone is not really enough info to make an informed decision. Thanks anyway though, useful post.

    Thanks!

  3. I have been waiting and waiting for child themes to finally be included in the WordPress repository, but it is not so as yet.

    Very frustrating, as it is such a good idea to start with solid theme as a base – seems there would be fewer errors that way.

    I have a couple Twenty-Ten child themes I have created based on my nature photography that I would like to share here as well:

    Thanks!

  4. I have also built a customized child theme for Twentyten. You may see it in action at: http://presscollective.info

    The site is in Greek but it can be customized for any language.

    Some features include: HTML5 code (code validates as HTML5), responsive layout for viewports up to 980px (work still in progress), some CSS3 improvements, valid HTML5 social share icons and, finally, nice typography.

    The theme is absolutely free under the GPL. Just drop me a line if you want a copy.
