Bring amazing free themes from Site Origin

  1. I test drive themes on my computer and is extremely impressed by the theme from Site Origin (I test drove the Vantage theme but there are more free themes).

    Please, include these themes on WordPress.com

    Thank you!

  2. It also helps to note what you found amazing about their themes that would be of interest to other community members. :)

  3. Yes, I should explain what it is that is so amazing about their themes.

    I have not tested all the themes (only Vantage) but Site Origin provides Page Builder that allows you to do lots of unique pages. You can divide the pages into columns, add widgets and make a page so much more than just the text from left to right.

    You can also customize the look of theme (Appearance > Customize) to suit your needs. Full width or boxed layout, select custom menu icons, logo + Retina logo, change colors (more than just links), change the fonts, customize mobile menu, social links, and more.

    You really need to download the theme and try it for yourself to understand all the endless possibilities. It's probably the best theme I've ever tested. You don't need to create child themes or deal with any code to customize the theme according to your own preferences.

    Important to add is that the theme comes with plugins that do all these features possible.

  4. Howdy -

    Thanks for taking the time to give us this feedback.

    I have a few notes to follow up.

    You can do this the themes at WordPress.com as well. Widgets can have customized visibility to only display in designated areas of the site. Also, you can create tables and columns with html text formatting. Images galleries can also be added to pages.

    You can also customize the look of theme (Appearance > Customize) to suit your needs. Full width or boxed layout, select custom menu icons, logo + Retina logo, change colors (more than just links), change the fonts, customize mobile menu, social links, and more.

    We do have themes with different page template options (full width, etc..). On most themes, there are basic color palettes available further font or color customization is available with the Custom Design upgrade. Social links and menus can be added as well. Our themes are also mobile responsive, meaning, they scale automatically.

    Plugins are available for use with the installation of WordPress on a self hosted site. This is what you would need to use in order to upload this theme as it is not included in the WordPress.com Theme Showcase.

    Because of our shared environment there are limits on customization with WordPress.com.
