Last week I published my Review of WooThemes WordPress Themes, the first WordPress marketplace reviewed from our showcase of the Top 20+ Sources for Pixel Perfect Premium WordPress Themes, this week, the second installment of my theme reviews takes a look at one of my all time favourite sources for premium WordPress themes – ElegantThemes WordPress Themes.
Amazingly Beautiful WordPress Themes. – ElegantThemes
Introduction to ElegantThemes
ElegantThemes was one of the first WordPress Theme sources I discovered and promptly became a member of. ElegantThemes now produce and maintain over 82 WordPress themes and cater for a massive community of just over 180 000 members. Nick Roach’s mission at ElegantThemes is to produce "Amazingly Beautiful WordPress Themes" and I think he’s doing an awesome job on delivering.
WordPress Themes by ElegantThemes
At ElegantThemes design is their art and passion. This ensures that all ElegantThemes are created with a pixel-perfect eye for detail and a high standard for aesthetic excellence. Each premium WordPress theme creation is packed full of advanced features including plethora of shortcodes, page templates and theme options to provide you with full control over your website design, layout and functionality. The portfolio of 82 themes cover just about any niche market, from beautiful looking personal blogs and magazines, to drop-dead gorgeous directory themes and even ecommerce themes for running your online store.
My Favourite ElegantThemes
This is a tough one, as I currently have many favourites at ElegantThemes. If you’ve been following my antics, you’ll know that I have often used the Bold Theme or The Style as the foundation of personal blogs. But another theme which I cannot get enough of is The Source, a big, bold and beautiful magazine theme which features an awesome featured slider, multiple navigation bars and two sidebars.
WordPress Plugins by ElegantThemes
On the plugins front, ElegantThemes have produced several great plugins, including the HandHeld Mobile Plugin, Elegant Page Builder, a plethora of ShortCodes and a Maintenance Mode Plugin. I’ve made use of the HandHeld mobile plugin before and it’s a really great way to pimp the mobile version of your WordPress website if your theme is not designed to be responsive. The Elegant Page builder is a powerful drag and drop editor to fine-tune the format of your posts and pages.
ElegantThemes Support Forums
At ElegantThemes a lot of effort is also put into providing not only top-notch theme documentation and maintenance, but also into WordPress tech support for all customers. Their dedicated support staff are there to ensure that you will have your blog up and running without a hitch, regardless of your experience level.
The ElegantThemes pricing model is super-simple. There’s only one membership option which costs $69 per year and gives you complete access to all themes, 82 and counting, as well as the layered .PSD files. There’s also a developer membership available at $89.
So, what are you waiting for, come join over 180 000 community members, including myself at ElegantThemes.
