We want to hear from you!

We’re working on a redesign for this site. This brings up a lot of other questions about how we want to handle other things moving forward. And so, we’ve created this survey about our email list — which I know we’ve been neglecting — to find out what you are interested in hearing about and… (read more)

Making theme options modular

Today I submitted version 1.1 of Museum Core to the WordPress theme repository for review. Originally this was going to just be a simple update with some bugfixes, but I had thought of a way to make it easier to build child themes that include some options settings from the parent theme (Museum Core) without… (read more)

This charming Blogger template and WordPress theme is a little bit vintage, a little bit writer and a whole lot of personality! It uses neutral colors and inviting paper textures with an added vintage style ornament as accents to create a warm and sophisticated setting for your words of wisdom, adorable pictures or online diary…. (read more)

A new theme in the works

We spent the day today hammering out some ideas for a new Museum Theme.  We wanted to do something for those typophiles and writers out there; something minimalist with an emphasis on typography and a unique design.  The result is Ex Libris, which will be coming very soon.

Update 7/22/2010: Thesis adopts the GPL! Over the last few days, the WordPress community has exploded into debate over one thing: Thesis and it’s restrictive, non-GPL-compliant license.  If you’re already familiar with the particulars of what Thesis is and what the debate is, you can skip the summary (to be honest, I’m sick of reading… (read more)

12 Free WordPress Themes I Like (and you should, too)

Just because we built free WordPress themes and Museum Themes doesn’t mean we can’t appreciate the good work of others.  In fact, it’s through watching what’s going on in the greater WordPress theme community that gives us ideas, keeps us on our toes, and informs us of trends and what people are interested in.  Here… (read more)

Gee, there’s a thought…

One of the things that’s frustrated me about a lot of premium WordPress themes I’ve had experience with is that they leave the user hanging.  You see the demo and it looks awesome.  Configurable category displays, a featured content gallery, room for adsense, customizable navigation, even a video embed in the sidebar.  Maybe you even… (read more)

Simple Gray

Simple Gray is a minimalist WordPress theme we did a couple years ago.  Having not touched it once in over a year, with the launch of Museum Themes, we figured it was time to revisit it.  We’ll be revamping all our old free themes and officially releasing some of the ones we never got around… (read more)

We’re GPL!

Last night, I spent some time reading about the GNU Public License (GPL).  There’s been a rich and heated debate for years about how the GPL applies to “premium” (generally defined as commercial, for profit, or otherwise non-free) themes and/or how it doesn’t apply/shouldn’t apply/doesn’t matter.  At the heart of the argument is this: WordPress… (read more)

Museum Themes have arrived!

That’s right.  We have liftoff.  After months of planning, hours and hours of coding and hacking, many sleepless nights,  and countless time spent researching the various options out there and figuring out where we fit in a sea of “premium” WordPress themes, Museum Themes is officially launched. I won’t spend a whole lot of time… (read more)
