Pinboard: Impressive Free WordPress Theme with Lots of Design Options
Although obviously billed as a Pinterest-style theme, the great thing about the new free Pinboard theme is that it’s so much more than that.
While you can obviously make your site look like a “pinboard,” you can make it look like a regular blog, a business site, a portfolio site, or a combination of those things.
The power behind all this flexibility lies in theme’s framework and grid system. For the user, this appears most readily in the easy-to-use customization panels found in the Admin area.
For example, here’s a look at some layout options for the homepage.
