Salutation: A New HTML5 WordPress and BuddyPress Theme

Salutation caught my attention this weekend. It’s a new HTML5 BuddyPress theme available from Themeforest. The BuddyPress theme market is still very small, and we’re always getting questions on Twitter about where to find themes. This one looks like a decent option.

Salutation uses HTML5 and CSS3, which allows you to make use of all the latest technologies. It also comes with a drag-and-drop layout manager for creating custom layouts for any page or post. You can attach custom headers and footers to your layouts.

Other features include unlimited sidebars, a popup login form, layered PSD files for customization, and full localization (.po/.mo files). The theme options panel is completely unbranded and ready for you to white label. You can also set permissions to restrict client access to theme options.

Check out a live demo to see the theme in action.

Themeforest doesn’t have many BuddyPress themes available yet, but this one looks promising. Give Salutation a try and let us know what you think!
