For those that follow some of the more prominent members of the WordPress community, you have probably noticed that those at the top have become a very close group. I’ve always felt that this is a wonderful thing, but it has the side effect of making it difficult for a newcomer to break into those ranks and earn the respect of their peers.
One of those up and coming designers who is trying to get noticed is Roy Guan. A few months ago Roy entered into the crowded premium themes community with the launching of his website, Theme Junkie. In order to grab a foothold within this very busy space, Roy has managed to find a niche within a niche, offering all of his premium designs for under $30.00. In only about six months time Theme Junkie has already made available a large selection of premium themes as well as two free themes.
Below I wanted to take a moment and feature a few of my favorite designs already available from Theme Junkie:
Each theme includes a demo so you can view an example of a website using the theme. You’ll also get full theme support, a custom control panel, and a variety of standard features across all available themes:
- Advanced Theme Control Panel
- Auto-sized Thumbnail Management
- Fully Widgeted Sidebars
- Advertisement Management
- Analytics/Stat Management
- Built-in FeedBurner Support
- Threaded Comments
- Gravatar Ready
- Custom Page Templates
- Drop-down Menu Navigation
- WordPress 2.9+ Compatible
- Cross-Browsers Compatibility
- Email & Forum Support
- Lifetime Upgrade
Lastly, I wanted to share a sample of a typical control panel which is included with the themes:
FreshLife Control Panel
In summary, not only am I a fan of Theme Junkie themes, but I’m also an all-inclusive member! Having quality templates handy when launching a new website or blog always comes in handy, so I should be covered next time I launch a new website or blog.
If you decide you are also interested in joining the Theme Junkie community, prices on designs start at only $39.95. Developer’s can also get access to EVERY Theme Junkie theme (including future releases) for as little as $59.95. You can find more information here.
