Since we relaunched ThemeFurnace with a new design and pricing strategy in June last year, we wanted to focus on creating free versions of our most popular themes for inclusion in the WordPress theme directory. It is a useful marketing tool as we get to expose our themes to more people looking for free themes who might consider upgrading to one of our paid plans in future and we also get useful feedback the more people use our themes.

ThemeFurnace is a two-man team at the moment, I currently design and code the HTML for our themes and my partner, a brilliant programmer from Estonia, codes the actual themes. Before that it was just me creating the themes by myself, we have worked together for years so know each well and work great together.

The free themes we release are not that different to our full versions, they are just missing our custom widgets and extended color options and of course support which we provide via a ticket system and forums on the main ThemeFurnace website.

Within the last month we added two new themes to the directory, bringing our total on there to five now. The latest themes to be added were Stacker and Exposition.

We are currently working on our best theme to date which we hope to release next month as a free theme also – keep a look out for that announcement, excited :)

Here is a look at our latest two free themes …


Stacker is an image based theme suitable for blogging and portfolio sites – the homepage is made up of responsive columns so you can add featured images of different sizes and the homepage will rearrange itself in a masonry style, its created with CSS though so you dont get the delay you would with JS based sites. You can use the Customizer to choose how many columns to show on the homepage, it has a social media menu so you can just add links to your accounts and it will add them with an icon. You can also change the colors within the Customizer and choose from hundreds of Google fonts.

Exposition is a blog style WordPress theme which is perfect for long-form writers and photographers who need simple and clean theme with attractive typography and white-space which gives plenty of room for your work to stand out and do the talking. It is responsive so it resizes down to look equally as good on tablets and phones and has a responsive menu built with jPanelMenu.
