Three Free WordPress Themes – My Corporation, Ribbons and Shadows

Posted on by in Blog

In this post, we introduce you to three free WP themes, namely My Corporation, Ribbons and Shadows, all designed by A J Clarke of WPExplorer. If you’re looking for free minimal themes for your WP blog, the following might just serve the purpose!

My Corporation:

My Corporation is a minimalist theme which is licensed under GPL. It is ideal for business or portfolio websites (more so for the latter). The theme author also provides a free .xml file to set up the theme with custom post types, though this isn’t really needed. I’d personally prefer to tweak and set it up myself – after all, my blog’s needs are different from his, aren’t they?

The theme comes with a built in homepage slider, jQuery enhanced drop down menus, CSS3 enhancement, custom font (Droid Sans) and several other features.

The Theme Options Page is quite well laid out as well, with tabs to specify a favicon, tweak the slider animation and transitions, as well as insert your Google Analytics code. Apart from that, it has separate settings pages for Portfolio, Slides, etc.

Ribbons:

Ribbons is a clean and slick free WP theme. It has in built support for the jQuery Cycle Plugin and thus you can show your Featured Posts in the sidebar too. Perhaps the most eye catching feature in the theme is the Home page slider, that comes with several custom animations and transitions. It offers 3 ad spots – header, top post and bottom post. If you don’t like the grid style background, worry not! Ribbons comes with full customizability options. And finally, the theme also offers social media icons.

Speaking of Theme Options page, it lets you specify your custom favicon, tweak the home page slider settings, social media icons (Twitter and Facebook, to be precise), advertisement and Analytics settings. In addition to that, it also lets you disable features such as Related Posts, metadata about each post, author bio, thumbnails, etc.

And lastly, Ribbons comes with extensive documentation and help files that cover almost all aspects of the theme.

Shadows:

Shadows is a very minimal WP theme that flaunts CSS3 box shadows. It has numerous widget areas in the footer, in built pagination, tweet and like buttons on individual pages (optional) and several other basic features that one could ask for! It also supports custom favicon and holds an ad space in the header sized 468×60.

The Theme Options Page is absolutely identical to that of My Corporation theme described above. It lets you specify custom favicon, header advertisement code, Google Analytics code, etc. Apart from that, you can also disable or modify features such as social media buttons, featured images, extended footer widget areas, etc from the Theme Options Page itself.

All in all, Shadows is an eye pleasing theme that doesn’t shout and lets your content do the talking!
