There are all sorts of WordPress themes available for anyone to download at no charge, but none are as popular or have spawned so many versions as the wildly popular K2 WordPress theme, which was created by Michael Heilemann, Chris J Davis and Zeo, based on the original Kubrick theme. As a result, I decided to dedicate an entire post to cover some of the best K2 theme styles and modifications available for download.

      Hey Ashesh,

      I noticed you figured out how to change the “Comments” to “Leave a Reply” on your site.

      Can you tell me what php page you edited, and where the code is to make this change? I’m kinda new to this.



  10. S Jefferson says:

    Here’s my K2 mod for the ages. Simple, clean, tough. That’s the goal anyway. Grustler.

  11. Get Free says:

    Thanks for your sharing many customized K2 theme. It looks great!

  12. Mao says:

    What does have thumbnail and featured post in it?

  13. Dudes, any NEW K2 child themes out there that has a width greater than 780px? I just want a simple tasteful 2 column child theme that HAS menus & allows me to use a header > 780px. Too bad the K2 core developers didn’t code drop-down menus. It’s like they’re trying tease the heck out of peeps.

    That’s why I always prefer TwentyTen. But K2 could really go places if they did something like the TwentyTen Weaver theme project.
