When it comes to a WordPress theme, a picture does not tell the whole story — even though it is worth a 1,000 words.
A screen shot of a theme gives you an impression of the design, the looks of the theme — which, granted, is the most important function of a theme.
However, equally important as the front-end of a website, are the back-end features of the theme. How easy is it to configure the theme, for instance, like the demo?
That is where ThemingWP comes in.
When I decided to start a review site for WordPress themes, I needed some kind of an evaluation tool.
Without such a tool, there is too much room for subjectivity, where you could favor themes you personally like best.
In order to prevent this, I created a Theme Review Tool and protocols how to execute theme reviews.
To date, I have published over 550 theme reviews.
April 2015 though, I decided to delete all reviews regarding non-responsive themes, and from a number of theme shops that I did not want to follow any longer.
About half of the reviews was slashed April 2015.
At the same time, the number of theme shops was reduced from 40+ to less than 10: Elegant Themes, Gabfire Themes, Graph Paper Press, Organic Themes, StudioPress, Templatic, Themedy, Themify, and WooThemes.
