I’m pleased to announce that, after many months of work, my new theme shop ThemeFurnace is now live! I have been working on building this site and the launch themes since late last year so it’s amazing to finally reveal it to the public …
There are 4 themes available at the moment at a cost of $49, I also offer a developer club membership which is $99 per year and includes all the launch themes + every theme added over the next 12 months. That is guaranteed to be a minimum of one a month, although Im aiming to add more than this.

As I mentioned there are 4 themes available on launch, here they are …
Scrollcase is a tidy little theme which could be used for a personal portfolio website – show off your photos or graphic work in style with a separate portfolio section.
Busine is a clean theme for your business website – with a neat homepage you can customize by adding text widgets with your own icons and a large tagline box.
Perosan is a simple personal blogging theme with some nice built-in extras such as social media count widgets, flickr widgets, lined paper style text widgets and a homepage slider.
Capiton is an extremely clean theme suitable for a portfolio or business website, it has minimal styling is very versatile.
Theme Options Panel
I have built our theme options panel on top of the brilliant UpThemes Framework – I havent gone crazy with features, just a few essentials to help people control the look of their site without touching code.
The panel typically includes:
- Text or Image Logo with Image Uploader
- Custom Intro text / Footer Text
- Footer Scripts for things like Google Analytics
- Slider controls – Enable / Disable, Multiple effects etc
- Social Media – Enter your accounts and the theme retrieves followers counts
- Typography – Using Google Webfonts, control the fonts and sizing
- Import / Export – Save your option panel settings to use on another site
I have licensed the best slider – Nivo Slider and built it into our themes, you can use it to display any category from the blog or from your portfolio.
Features include :
- 16 unique transition effects
- Simple clean & valid markup
- Loads of settings to tweak
- Built in directional and control navigation
- Keyboard Navigation
Head over to the site to see what else is included with the themes.
I have an affiliate program up and running which pays 30% of any referred sales, you can signup for that here. The affiliate area has text links for all the themes plus a load of banners in different sizes you can use on your sites.
I hope you like the new site – after working on something for so long its quite nerve racking to finally release it! Please leave any comments or questions in the comments and I’ll get back to you.
