14 Free WordPress Themes, Fresh from March 2013

No Picture

Each month, I bring to you a roundup of some of the best free themes released for self-hosted WordPress websites. Now that March has ended, here is this month’s edition!

March was a good month, as far as WordPress themes are concerned. With WP 3.6 just around the corner (expect it to be with you by late-April, if all goes well), many developers released new themes this month. The majority of the themes were meant for personal blogs or, surprisingly, tumblogs. This can be attributed to the fact that Twenty Thirteen, the upcoming flagship theme for WordPress, shall be supporting post formats and will feature a single-column layout.

Clippy

Most of the themes released this month were responsive: some were even retina-ready. A couple of them were based on Twitter Bootstrap, whereas Hybrid Core framework too did not lag behind.

Enough talking! Let us go ahead and check out the themes, shall we?

These themes are fantastic! I love the fact that a majority of these are responsive. That is excellent. The fact that most themes are being built responsively means that your content will look great on as many devices as possible.

Hi Sufyan, these themes are really great. I have seen a lot of free WP themes, but usually they look, well, like S*** is an understatement. Yours look really cool and SympalPress looks pretty much like a Premium theme. Do you make those yourself? Kudos if you do man!
