Free theme highlight: Hueman
In terms of free themes, Hueman sure is a knockout. I’m not even much for magazine themes, but if you have a photo-heavy site with plenty of content, I really love the design and feel of this theme.
Built by Alexander Agnarson, it appears to have been released November 1st, and was still a couple more weeks before it hit WordPress.org, where it’s already one of the most popular themes.
Alex has another free theme available that’s more of “just a blog” style called Anew that’s quite nice too. Right now I see no way to pay him for his work or support. I would recommend he offer at least some form of commercial support, as I’m sure he could make quite decent money supporting his work.
If y’all like little quick tips like these, let me know and I’ll try to do them more often.
Hello. Yes, please! Please do more post like this in the future, especially on free themes. It’s so hard to find new good ones these days.
I think that’s a good idea. Themes like this don’t come around very often and they’re easy to miss. Some things are exceptional and they’re worth highlighting!
Wow, Anew is just as nice. I’d use it! There’s some money in this for Alexander. I wonder if he’s building a rep before releasing commercial product. I agree that he could do well if he just flips on the switch of monetization.
Highlighting great themes and plugins an excellent idea. Continue with the quick tips!
The problem with posting about Free Themes is that so few good quality free themes exist. And those that do feel like the are full of hacks, or have weird quirks. I’ll have to investigate this Hueman theme. I am interested in seeing how clean the templates are….
As of this writing, there is indeed a link for donations via PayPal on the page you link to. I’m a fan of Mr. Agnarson’s style- in design and philosophy. Makes me eager to kick in.
