  • Nice list! But I am a bit disappointed to not see my Slim Free Theme there (http://www.wpexplorer.com/slim-wordpress-theme.html) It’s own of the only theme’s with unlimited color options and a rotating header image.

    Hi AJ,

    Sorry we missed your theme. I have made a note to review the theme over the next week or so. Alternatively, if you would like to preview Slim Free for our readers yourself, please let me know :)
