(Last updated: 01/30/06 – Now listing 616 WordPress 1.5+ Themes available for download!) Themes which I have tested as also working with WP 2.0 are labeled as: tested with WordPress 2.0

Note that most wordpress 1.5 themes are likely to work with wordpress 2.0 unless they require specific plugins to work properly (in which case they’ll only work if the required/included plugins ALSO work with 2.0, which is iffy)

Cool. It'd be even cooler if you could identify the 3 column layouts. Nice work!

Thanks for the list. We are always looking for themes. Maybe one day I will be good enough (and take the time) to create one. :) Good day!

Great list Emily. I do notice in all your postings that there is no mention of Expression Engine. We have been planning our own weblog using Movable Type, but only today I have read that there are some serious technical issues regarding many blogs not being found at all and others where postings have disappeared from bloggers archives.

We had in any case decided already to switch and use EE, as it is a fully compliant CSS/PHP/MySQL based package, with lots of excellent features. I accept that EE only has a small share of the blog software market at present, but then the developers only released it a few months ago, having taken over from their earlier package called pMachine Pro. I think that is correct.

You ought to try out the functionality - we would be interested in your comments - before we dive in and buy their package! Sorry, that makes you sound like our guinea-pig - if you know what I mean!!

You are very much appreciated for compiling this info and I am happy to see all my 3 themes find a place in here :)

Thanks for the good work and please keep it up ! :)

Hey thanks for the link. Drop me a line sometime. I have a question... :)

Posted by: Aaron | Mar 22, 2005 8:07:13 PM

Hey Emily, I know you love getting these themes right away, so here's the link to a theme I just released. :)

Thanks for the links to Deep Blue, Green Trees and Mashed Spuds! I'll let you know if/when I make something new :)

You're doing a fabulous job here, it must be overwhelming at times.

You are an angel from heaven. . . thanks chica.

Actually, the crappymatic is the crappy script I wrote that converts generic templates into blogger, wordpress, diaryland, diary-x, movable type, and textpattern templates, so it's not technically a wordpress theme itself - although all of the linkware templates at my site are.

Posted by: francey | Mar 24, 2005 12:12:02 PM

Awesome job. Heaven for any wordpress user.

Posted by: Azeem Azeez | Mar 24, 2005 2:55:11 PM

you can add my theme

Posted by: Daniel Ryan | Mar 24, 2005 5:03:38 PM

Hey thanks for adding my theme (MTsix)!

Posted by: Oliver | Mar 24, 2005 6:52:07 PM

Umm on the one called Simplicity which I made.. it links to a page with three themes on it.


I guess you can do whatever you want but here's another I made

Hi there, this topic was recently bumped at WP so I thought I'd take a look - I'm mighty impressed by your effort, and it's always good to see more resources to find more themes.

The address for my Meadow theme (in the list) is now http://wordpress.sekhu.net which includes the variation Don't Panic! theme. If I do anymore themes they'll be there.

Keep up the good work.

Hi Emily,
Thanks for Posting my "Aesthetic theme" here. Kudos for collecting the comprehensive and Best collection of Wordpress Themes.

181 Radical Image
incorrect link

122 132
same theme - Lucid

193 safety is 3 columns

Posted by: Nice | Mar 31, 2005 10:30:52 AM

To 'Nice' - Thank you so much for the heads-up on that! I've made all the corrections (and found another theme that was listed twice!)

Unfortunately, the site where I found the link for the Radical Image theme (Organic Shadows) also points to the incorrect URL - and I haven't been able to turn up any other references to that theme just yet, so for now I've removed it from the list.

I greatly appreciate the help with editing! Thanks for taking the time to drop me the note!

Posted by: Emily from How to Blog | Mar 31, 2005 3:17:08 PM

Again, to the WP theme authors, you're all welcome (in response to the thanks you've expressed for having listed your themes here), but remember the real thanks goes out to YOU for having created the themes and making them freely available to the WP community. Thanks so much for sending your themes my way! Keep 'em coming :)

Posted by: Emily from How to Blog | Mar 31, 2005 3:19:56 PM

Hi,
Can you add my new theme "FALL-IN-LOVE to the list. The screen shots of the theme is availabale in http://www.dilpu.net/wordpress.html . The theme is with Three columns. The current colour scheme is 'Royal Blue'
Regards,

Dilip

Posted by: Dilip | Apr 1, 2005 3:12:37 AM

Another theme. I got bored and decided to make this

Emily: Just leting you know that my three themes (Deep Blue, Greentrees and Mashed Spuds) are no longer available for download. They may be resurrected at some time in the future but right now that seems doubtful... Thanks for the link-time :)
