MH Themes is a »Pro Theme Provider.«

The business model of theme providers has changed drastically lately. Previously, we had premium theme providers that only offered one or two themes for free, trying to sell the rest for more or less high prices. One of the most popular ones has been WooThemes (now known as WooCommerce). Pro theme providers offer all their themes as Lite versions in the official WordPress theme index. These Lite versions come with fewer functions than their respective Pro versions. If you want access to all functions, you have to buy the theme.

The Advantage is Obvious

The advantage for you as a consumer is that you don't have purchase a pig in a poke anymore. You get to try the themes beforehand. Chances are high that you won't even need the pro version. Because of that, I will share with you a more detailed look at the themes from MH Themes. All themes are well usable for magazines, personal blogs, news sites, and some even work for corporate websites. Within all of them, the code quality is very high.
