43 Free WordPress Themes that Look Totally Premium

  1. The best roundup as usual Lorelei. These themes are great examples of what FREE, open source technology can produce when surrounded by a community of awesomeness.. This post is a great roundup!

    Oh yea, give me a shout if you want one of these themes “Customized” for you!! lol

  2. That’s a great list. I’m definately looking at implementing one of these themes on my site until I get round to getting one custom made. Thanks a bunch

  3. Great designs Lorelei!

    I downloaded the SilverStar theme and activated it, but i notice the comment within comment feature is not present… what do i do to get it to work like it does in the demo?

    1. Jon, I forgot to mention you need to download the FeatureMe plugin to select posts for featured posts section.
      http://www.bioxd.com/featureme/
      Once you upload and install the plugin on your server, every post will have a small box (I think at the bottom) in the admin panel when you make or edit posts, — check the box to make the post appear in the featured slider.

      This will do the trick with upper slider.

      1. No, I mean there is no reply in each comment box. See how you commented within my comment box. How do I get the theme to do that? It’s missing.

  4. Hi, Lorelei,

    I just installed your beautiful “Silverstar” theme, downloaded and installed the FeatureMe plugin. The little box you referred to in your reply to Jon (2/3/2010) appears in the edit-post window, but when I check the box and update the post, it doesn’t remain checked and the post doesn’t make it to the “Featured Posts” slider. Any ideas for me.

    Gratefully,

  5. Dear Lorelei:

    I left a comment but it’s disappeared. I’m having difficulty getting the “Featured Posts” feature to work on SilverStar.” The little box you mention appears, but it will not maintain the “check” when I update the post. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  6. Sorry for the trouble. I went to the plug-in designer’s site and he mentioned that the featureme.php file needs to be in the plugins root, not in its own folder, as are other wp plugins. All is well, and thanks again for a beautiful design!

    @Jon, you probably didn’t allow nested comments on your blog in the first place

    In your admin panel, go to Settings >> Discussion >> and check the box near “Enable threaded (nested) comments __ levels deep”

    Let me know if it helped please.

  8. Hi Loreli,
    I am having trouble with an old theme, Simplebet. The posts on the main page show correctly but when I click through to the individual post pages, all the photos are showing up twice. I can’t figure out why and hope that you can help :-). Thanks!

  9. I like Velvetzino very much, If I want to use it for commercial purpose, can I buy it?, how much is cost?

  10. Thanks for these collection Lorelei. Though I say I’ve hired professional web designer, still I need WP theme for personal designing. See, I’m a bit a fan of web designing but I don’t want to ruin my website that’s why I look for web designer. But since there are free sites where I can do the designs of my own, like WP, then this is a real help. Thanks for sharing.

  11. Some I’ve already seen more often in the i-net, others are new even for me, despite all this, a good library. Thanks a lot.
