  1. Some non-sense outdated themes. Many of them created in year 2008. You need to wake up this is 2016. This is what you’d give to your fellow loyal readers? WPLift is slowly dying. Sad…

    • Hi Jason,

      I edited the post – I’ll explain how this happened:

      1. the problem was that although some of the themes have been released earlier, they weren’t published in the directory until June.

      2. some of the themes were only updated and not new. They were displayed there as new in the WordPress directory and I mixed them up. My bad.

      Hope you will keep reading WPLift.

      • I’m not 100% on why the age of any given theme is evidence that this site is dying. A good looking theme is a good looking theme, regardless of how old it is!

  2. Eighteen Tags is interesting.
    I’ve added to my favorite free theme collection.
    I like those kind of “base” theme which is flexible.

    My other favorite is Customizr and GeneratePress.
