100 Best WordPress Themes You Are Going to Use (and Love) in 2012

We all must admit that wordpress themes have evolved tremendously since WordPress was first launched, with a set of diary-like templates. With more features, plugins and modules and ideas, WordPress has turned into the web’s most powerful CMS model. With millions of wordpress themes available free and for a fee, today it’s safe to say that there is nothing you cannot do with WordPress as a base platform. From photographer’s portfolios, showcases, and magazine style blogs of all kind and shape, we are free to create anything we want, customize it for our needs and optimize for best user-experience. Here I highlighted 100 best WordPress themes, some are free, some are GPL (general Public License themes) and some are premium (paid) designs, all under $25, which is a price I assume to be affordable to most. With this list under the elbow, you will never run out of ideas what to do with our top picked, best WordPress themes!

hi cool little blog you got there 🙂 I am using the same exact theme on my website however for whatever silly cause it seems to load faster on this website despite the fact that this site features a little more multimedia. Are you currently operating any individual plugins or widgets that will quicken it up? If you could quite possibly display the names so I can use them in my personal website so twilight new moon users could watch twilight breaking dawn online trailers and films quicker I’d personally always be happy – many thanks ahead of time 🙂

There is alot of nice themes here. I have to question your choice on a few of them though, such as Brazen, Metist and Shy love. Brazen looks like an early 2k design. Metist makes no sense, there is no cohesiveness to the design. And Shy Love, along with a couple others, have huge headers and do not make good use of the dead space that gets created in the header. The title and tag cloud look like they were placed completely randomly as well.

Reply

September 1, 2009 at 12:02 pm29

Well, I personally like big headers, and I bet many others still do too (not everyone likes the childish /chinese-like neat web 2.0 themes). But hey, that means you did like the other 97 themes in my list 😀

Reply
Mike
September 3, 2009 at 7:08 am28

Big headers are not bad generally. Im not questioning the idea of having a big header. I am questioning the use of space in those specific themes(art theory). Speaking specifically of the Shy Love theme, the design and placement of elements within the structure of the header actually draws the eyes to the dead space in the upper right above the clouds in the image.
