Need a WordPress portfolio theme to frame your graphic work or photos in an uncluttered and attractive way? No problem. We’ve collected 30 of the best free, responsive portfolio themes for you here.
You can’t go past fullscreen themes when you’re looking to make a statement with your WordPress site.
Not only are they bold and striking, they are the perfect fit for photographers, creative artists and graphic designers, and anyone else looking to make a visual impact.
But while there are plentiful premium fullscreen themes, free ones are few and far between.
WordPress now powers almost 20% of the web. And though it’s hard to say exactly how much of that is attributed to exactly what types of users, there’s no question that businesses have been turning to WordPress at a greater and greater rate.
As you might expect, that increased demand has led theme developers to increase choices. And these 60 free responsive business themes below attest to that.
Exactly What is a “Business Theme”?
A WordPress business theme is a theme that generally doesn’t put a blog front and center.
We enjoyed the results of the blog survey (congrats to the winner by the way, you know who you are!) so much that we figured we’d try to get your feedback again… and give away another annual WPMU DEV account (worth $588) to one lucky respondent :)
And to make things even better, this survey is less than half as long and concerns one thing and one thing only… themes.
In a recent review of WordPress’ latest default theme, WPMU DEV’s Chris Knowles called Twenty Fourteen a “flawed beauty.”
In that article, Chris recommended a number of potential improvements, and together we’ve put together this ultimate guide to addressing those flaws.
And what’s more, these tips and techniques can be used in practically any WordPress theme.
So, break out the cape, fire up your favorite editor, and give Twenty Fourteen a superhero makeover.
There are a lot of reasons why it is better to create a child theme instead of modifying a theme, but one of the most important reasons is that doing so allows you to keep the parent theme up to date without losing your customizations.
The more template files you copy from the parent theme to the child theme, the more likely it is that you will miss out on the benefit of a future update to the parent theme as the changes are in a file your child theme is overriding.
It’s been a cracker of a year here at WPMU DEV. We’ve released lots of new plugins, updated existing ones and helped give our members the best WordPress support out there.
Thank you to all our loyal WPMU DEV Blog readers who have supported us throughout the year and contributed to some fairly robust discussions in the comments of our posts.
Throughout the year we wrote hundreds of articles, so to farewell 2013 here’s a roundup of our biggest and best posts.
Happy New Year!
The smoke has cleared from WordPress Theme Builder Shootout and we are left with a winner, as there has to be, but it was a close run thing.
Four different products and four different approaches each with their pros and cons.
But are they competing with each other or is the biggest threat coming from a swag of highly flexible premium themes?
As we prepare to head into a new year, no doubt many will take this opportunity to simplify, to look for a fresh start, a clean slate.
And so with that theme in mind, we’ve found 85 of the best simple, clean, and fresh free WordPress themes for you.
Let us know which ones you like.
When you are designing for hundreds of different devices that your site could be displayed on, you can accept the responsive design “one size fits all” approach that leads to unnecessary compromise, or you can use “one design fits most and I’ll fix the rest” approach of adaptive strategies.
