At long last, we are incredibly pleased to announce the beta launch of this new site PressCastle.com!
WordPress has grown by leaps and bounds over the past years. It has morphed from a simple blogging platform into a full fledged CMS that now powers nearly 20% of the entire internet. Supported by an ever growing community of developers and designers, there are now over 15,000 themes and over 30,000 plugins that have been created for WordPress as well as a large assortment of other tools ranging from drag and drop interfaces to code generators to WordPress-specific hosting platforms to 3rd party services that provide everything from security to marketing.
PressCastle.com was created as a repository for many of such WordPress happenings. We have searched the internet far and wide to find as many themes as we could, and we have plans to bring you fantastic collections of other WordPress awesomeness as we find it. For now, we’ve collected over 13,000 themes, categorized them, and are in the process of adding valuable filters based on things such as compatibility with WPMU, BuddyPress, and other popular plugins. Other filters include purchase options (is the theme part of a theme club or no? does the theme have recurring costs or no?) and the framework the site is built on (Bootstrap, Genesis, etc.). So far, we are very pleased with the results. We can proudly say that we have the largest and most up to date index of WordPress themes on the web and that we plan to keep it that way. We are constantly updating our site with new theme releases as well as removing any items that have been discontinued by their authors to ensure that our site stays up to date and relevant.
We are currently in beta as we add all of the bells and whistles that we hope will make this site an incredibly valuable resource to the community. At this time we are also looking for writers which you can read about here.
We appreciate you visiting our site and we would love to hear any feedback you have for us, good or bad. You can get in touch with us here.
