iklan banner

A few things can be learned from this latest roundup of new WordPress themes, all released within the past five months or so.
First of all, there’s a definite trend toward more premium themes, with fewer high-quality free themes available.
Minimalist and simple, clean themes are definitely the favorite of designers at the moment, representing the vast majority of the themes in this roundup.
There’s also been an increase in jQuery integration in themes, though this has been a growing trend for awhile now.
A large percentage of themes in this list have at least some jQuery integration built-in, and some have quite a lot.

Free Themes

High quality free themes are getting rarer. Sure, there are still plenty of great options out there, but it seems like fewer free themes are being released at all, and finding the high-quality ones is even harder.
