8 Free Twenty Eleven Child Themes

It’s been a few months now since Twenty Eleven launched with the release of WordPress 3.2. As child themes are all the rage these days, I thought I’d take a look around the net and see what free Twenty Eleven Child Themes are on offer. There’s surprisingly few! I had planned to write about 20 Twenty Eleven Child Themes, then dropped to 10 Twenty Eleven Child Themes, but I’ve only managed to find eight to share with you. Methinks I sense a gap in the market.

  1. I’m looking for a twentyeleven child theme with 4 columns, featured slide show, content slider, dropdown menu and post excerpt image function. Thanks! Please post download link!

  2. Indicates a Gap in the market, indeed! Thank you for this wonderful collection of stellar examples to learn from. Hopefully this will inspire many more child themes from the CSS masters out here!

    • Looks nice but, I think there should be drastic changes from the default theme if offering a child theme for download.
      Simply adding a new font for the title, border radius, box shadow and creating even more wasted space in the header can be done in 5 minutes.

      All of the posted child themes above make drastic changes to either the functionality or design of the theme.

      In my opinion Twenty Eleven is a horrible starting point for child themes in the first place. There’s far too much customization done to it for a default theme, hopefully Twenty Twelve will be a mix of Twenty ten and eleven.
