Finding the perfect free theme for your WordPress website doesn't have to be an impossible task. Let us walk you through everything you need to do.
The sophistication of new drag and drop theme and page builders has been on the steady incline as WordPress becomes the gateway for both blogs and brands alike. Enthusiasts welcome the relative ease in which websites can come together, while front-end designers bemoan the slow death of their craft (will drag and drop eventually kill front-end design? It’s perhaps too soon to call).
Finding the ideal theme for a business website can be tricky.
There are countless themes available that market themselves as business themes, making it easy to just download the first one that looks about right so you can get on with setting it up. However, this is the quickest way to waste time and money.
As more and more developers move into creating websites for niche industries, charities, churches and non-profits are reaping the benefits.
While these loosely connected groups could use any old theme to establish and maintain their online presence, they have special needs most themes don’t provide. Developers who are catering to this group have realized this and have begun offering a common set of features: custom post types for events and sermons, support for fundraising, widgets for donations and video support for sermons, among other things.
Not a week goes by without another swag of theme posts that list 10,20,50,250 themes for you to sift through.
But not this post because that wheat has been sorted from the chaff, the cream has risen to the top and, apparently, even the sheep have been sorted from the goats.
Here’s 10 themes covering 10 categories. This is the best of the best of WordPress themes. Or is it?
Upgrading your website’s theme to the latest version is highly recommended, not only because it ensures you have all the latest features, but you’ll also be up-to-date with any security patches.
There are many ways to upgrade a WordPress theme. In this post we’ll look at a few different methods, from automatically upgrading to ensuring a customized theme isn’t unintentionally over-written.

Finding the perfect portfolio theme to show off your work can be time consuming.
There are hundreds upon hundreds of theme available, all with different features like Masonry grids, video, custom post types and parallax, to name a few.
The key to finding a great theme for your portfolio is to first work out what you need to support your content. If you’re a photographer you may want a full-width slider homepage. If you’re an artist or an illustrator a grid layout may be the best way to display your work.
Despite being popularized by Pinterest, the laying out posts using a “masonry grid” can be effective for numerous types of sites, not just photographic.
There’s only a handful of masonry-specific themes in the free WordPress theme repository, so I took them for a spin to see if any are worth considering.
And found an absolute gem.
The masonry grid approach has plenty of appeal especially for sites that post frequently, want to expose as many posts as possible, often use featured images and don’t want to worry about always having featured images of the same dimensions.
While there are plenty of parallax themes out there in the WordPress theme world, there aren’t that many free ones.
Below we have collected 15 of the best free parallax themes we could find.

Despite the fact there are hundreds upon thousands of themes available for WordPress, it’s still hard to find “the one.” You know, the perfect theme that will fulfil all of your hopes and dreams for your blog and put you in the mood to write.
Finding a great free theme can be difficult. Searching through the WordPress Theme Repository can be time consuming and often free themes lack beautiful design.
Below is a collection of free blogging themes that are all ideal for personal sites when you want the focus on your words.
