What is ThemeForest?
ThemeForest is part of Envato Market. At ThemeForest you can buy and sell HTML templates as well as themes for popular CMS products like WordPress, Joomla and Drupal. Items are priced on the complexity, quality and use of the file; the total price also includes a Buyer Fee. Basically, it’s a place where anyone who meets ThemeForest’s minimum standards of quality can sell their work. This opens up a wide variety of possibilities. You can find themes for blogs, wikis, forums, and pretty much any other kind of website you can think of. Your theme is the overall look, feel and style of your website. This includes things like the color scheme, layout and style elements. In essence, your website theme is a direct representation of your brand and has a direct impact on your users’ experience.
A truly massive library. You can build almost any kind of site. ThemeForest has over 11,000 WordPress themes, so you can find a theme for almost every conceivable purpose.
Strong community features. Themes can be rated and commented on. Theme developers can also be rated, and you can follow your favorites. These features help offset the problems caused by occasional low-quality themes you might find. Filtering. Thankfully, you can narrow down your options with a pretty robust set of filters.
You can filter themes by their purpose and function, visual style, price, user rating, and even by which plugins they’re compatible with.
A template is a theme plus some content for a specific purpose—such as a sales presentation, a business plan, or a classroom lesson. So a template has design elements that work together (colors, fonts, backgrounds, effects) and boilerplate content that you augment to tell your story. Considering the amount of extra work that goes into these themes, it’s impressive that TemplateMonster has built and maintained over 2100 of them, each to a pretty high standard of quality. And they’re all guaranteed to work.
Add-ons galore. You can buy loads of add-ons (such as plugins and extra support) for every theme. Pre-built websites. For a fee, TemplateMonster will set you up with a working website with the theme of your choice in five days.
Loyalty program. There’s a loyalty program that gets you of the add-ons (and pre-built website services) included with every theme you buy.
Creating quality WordPress themes since 2009. It was acquired in 2015 by Shea Media, a WordPress development and web media company. We are committed to bringing users new, beautiful themes that showcase emerging market trends along with continued adherence to industry standards and security. The themes are specifically geared toward non-profits and bloggers. Half of the themes are designed for blogs, and the other half are one-pagers. The aesthetics are generally minimalist and contemporary, with the exception of the “Epicurean” theme, which is dedicated to food blogging.
