100 Favourite WordPress Themes

admin Posted by admin

Over the past five years WordPress has gone from strength to strength and seen a huge increase in community developers and followers. This of course also extends to WordPress theme development. Themes are now being turned out on a daily basis, but for the non-coders among us, out of the hundreds of themes on offer, only a select few are worthy of using on our blogs – not only in an aesthetic sense, but also more importantly in terms of functionality and adaptability.

If you’re like me, when you look for a new theme you think customisation and after almost three years of blogging and tinkering with a fair amount of WordPress themes, I’ve built up a kind of repertoire, which I’ll share with you below. This is by no means a definitive list as taste is always a subjective affair, but I guess you’ll just have to trust me on that one. The list is intended to be updated so I’ll keep an active link to it in my blog’s sidebar. And please note that while entries are numbered they are not placed in any particular ranking order. Enjoy.
