At the moment, WordPress is one of the most popular content management systems out there. The famous 5-minute installation and the ease-of-use of this CMS are the main selling points. It’s also very versatile: you could use it to create a personal blog, a corporate website or even a e-commerce website. The possibilities are endless. Combine this with a huge collection of plugins and the sky is the limit.
A search engine for themes
One way to differentiate yourself from the hundreds of WordPress users is to choose a unique WordPress theme. A simple Google search will show you that there’s an abundance of WordPress themes. Finding the right theme isn’t so easy after all. That’s where findthemes.net comes in handy. It’s a WordPress themes search engine with a database of almost 500 WordPress themes.
The themes are selected from popular WordPress theme databases. You’ll find themes from ThemeForest, Woothemes, Vivathemes, WPzoom and many others. You can search per ‘theme provider’, creation date and color. The results can be filtered by number of columns or by price range. These tools are really useful when you’re looking for example for a 3-column green WordPress theme for under $50.
Submit your own themes
For the WordPress-developers among us: you can also submit your own themes. This can be a great way to increase your online presence and hopefully increase your sales (if you’re selling paid WordPress themes). But that doesn’t mean you can only submit your own themes. If you’ve found a great WordPress theme you can submit it and share it with the rest of the world.
Here are some of the themes I found via this website. It’s a combination of free WordPress themes and premium WordPress themes and it show the versatility of the themes database.
