Got Themes?

Permalink 1 user found helpful
When are we going to see some new themes become available in the marketplace? Come on - 4 pages is a joke. I would love to be able to use C5 more often, but can't keep using the same 2 or 3 templates over and over again. So I am forced to go with WordPress again.

Your in luck!

We are actually spending money out of our own pocket to expand the marketplace and build a 3rd party one too!

Our goal is to be live in mid-april! Best of all, were going to spend each week converting new open source themes to c5!

Just I guess stay tuned.

If you need some c5 work/conversions just pm me.

Cheers,

Thomas

We were thinking of creating a couple but do people actually use the themes or do they build there own templates and integrate into Concrete?

Sometimes due to time or budget constraints, a pre-built template is the ideal solution for us.

It depends.

We have done some research and found which themes are selling and which ones don't.

But it depends just like heybill said if you have a lower budget or your testing the system sometimes it is better for a template but if your looking for your own design and have the money your probably going to with a template.

themes totally sell. More would be a lot better. I see no need for an additional marketplace, we have all the functionality you'd want right here, plus we can auto-install them from our marketplace

I agree franz!

Only time will tell I guess...

I am personally working quite hard securing new designers for my themes!

I would love the idea of having a huge MP one day full of themes for everyone to choose and pick. Thats the main reason why I chose c5 is the skinning I like my site to be clean cut and fresh!

Cheers,

Thomas

OK, it's way past mid-April (almost May). Still looking forward to seeing all those new themes. We can we expect them to be available? - Thanks.

I'm also waiting C5 is great there just isn't enough themes and add ons which I must say is the only downside so far.

Addons are generally written against a need... if you have a need or any suggestions for addons them please post them. Simply saying there aren't enough is not really constructive towards solving the problem.

I believe there is a block request forum here. post there if you have ideas for addons.

Hi

sorry, but 400+ themes - I really believe that either you will find something you like or you should be at least able to change existing themes to your needs!

Look here:

Be careful with those, no discredit to the coder but the job was done 'quick and nasty', as I discovered with a few of the themes...
