Responsive WordPress themes are becoming more and more prevalent nowdays, they are no longer seen as something special but becoming the norm. I’m currently working on my first responsive theme for release at ThemeFurnace which Im really excited about: I put together a big post which contained everything you need to get started building responsive themes so check that out if you need help.

A good way of getting to grips with this way of building themes is to look at how other people have done it, so in today’s post I’m going to be listing some good quality responsive themes you can use as a base to build yours or just to inspect the code

  1. Another excellent free responsive (and HTML5 enabled) theme is Yoko, which also formed the basis for the redesign at Do It With WordPress. This is a great list and indicative of how the marketplace is shifting towards mobile-ready and responsive themes.

    • Cheers, yeah thats a good one, I covered before.

      Every theme I build from now on will be responsive – It takes a little longer coding but well worth it I think.

    Thank you for this collection. I’m not a theme designer, but a poverty-stricken theme user. I’ve also come to realize every site I build from now on needs to be responsive. And time permitting, I need to convert at least some of my old sites as well.

  3. Awesome, really wonderful collection of wordpress themes, all look interactive and well organized. You done a  great work that makes me inspire, Thanks a lot!
