Oh its nice to be missed!!! Many of you had been asking why Theme.fm had taken a bit of a hiatus, and yes it had been a bit of a while since we’d featured any new articles and tutorials but we can finally reveal why. Over the past few months the team had been hard at work designing and developing a bunch of new themes and also putting together the new Theme.fm Store to host our themes.
Yes we’re passionate about everything WordPress and its one thing writing about themes but its quite another thing when you get down to designing and developing your own! Its been a lot of hard work and many months going back and forth designing the new Themes and the Store itself.

The basics are there alright, blog all you want, write, insert photos, attachments. Yet, once you start thinking beyond the blog, beyond what the theme offers already you’ll find yourself looking for plugins in the Free Plugins Directory that WordPress.org hosts, offering a little short of 19,000 plugins.
Many simple WordPress plugins, like social bookmark links, related posts widgets, lightboxes, etc. usually come bundled with a premium theme. However, even the most expensive WordPress premium themes out there will lack some of the core features that are simply indispensable. Permalink
