Themes and where to get the Good Ones

There are literally thousands of WordPress Themes out there on the net. Here’s a list of repositories you can have a look at and see which one’s right for you.

I sometimes review Themes and give you an in-depth description of the pros and cons – check out all I’ve written on this topic here.

  • WordPress.org – this is what you can access from within the WordPress Backend under APPEARANCE – THEMES – ADD NEW and SEARCH
  • DIYthemes – the makers of the amazing Thesis Framework. This website runs on Thesis. It gives you every bit of control over your layout without having to tweak much code. I use it more and more and reccomend it to my clients. It’s not free but worth every penny. You can also purchase this through my site right here and benefit from an added installation service 😉
  • Woothemes
  • Graph Paper Press
  • Design Disease
  • The Buckmaker – I use Joe Fischler’s Aerodrome theme on Premier League News
  • Bavotasan – I use one of his themes for VIP Scoop
  • Template Monster

If you’ve found your perfect Theme but don’t quite know how to add it to your website, check out this article for detailed instructions.
