If you blog online and your preferred cms is wordpress, then I have some exciting freebies for you. I have the latest collection of free wordpress themes for you from the top wordpress designers online.
A general misconception is that free wordpress themes are usually of low quality and lack the same functionality you will get from a premium wordpress theme. I have worked with many themes in the past and I have come across some many themes that should definitely and would easily pass for a premium theme and yet they are free. You might not get the level of support you will receive had it been a premium theme but you are getting a free theme, don’t complain!
Below is a complete list of the latest free wordpress themes I found online for the early part of 2013
Bigg – Free WordPress Responsive Child Theme for Genesis
This is the first wordpress theme from the talented Ian Nuttal at www.iannuttall.co.uk. The theme takes it’s inspiration from the new digg layout. I was one of the early birds to test drive this theme and I can say it is very fast! This owns down to the powerful genesis framework and Ian not making using of clutter codes in his design.
Here are some of the main features of Bigg, at a glance:
- A grid loop homepage to showcase your featured work
- Popular posts built into the home template
- Fully responsive down to mobile
- A four column, widget ready footer
- A nifty jQuery scroll function on the home page
- A thumbs up script for readers to like posts
- Custom options to specify your featured category, social networks, and upload a logo
- All the awesomeness of Genesis!
