    Nice list! May I suggest adding my own theme?


    I felt like a lot of the existing portfolio theme were very well designed, but too complex. So I tried to create something clean and simple that doesn’t overpower the work you’re trying to showcase.

    Hello Steven,
    We are a team of WordPress theme developers, and we’ve just released a WYSIWYG editable WordPress Portfolio theme.
    What does that mean?

    Let’s face it: the biggest issue most users are facing is customization: every portfolio theme has his different set of options, less or more panels in the wp-admin…. sometimes for a coder it’s simpler to work out the css, and for a newbie, all those options seem to be confusing, because it is not clear what part of the template or what functionality every option allows.

    Starting from this consideration, I wanted to develop a different concept of customization interface, allowing live theme editing, without having to install any software or enter some weird administration panels.

    I’d really like to see what you think of the technology we are developing here at superthemes.org:

    We are getting very good feedback, but we are always open to new suggestions by WP enthusiasts 🙂 so your input is welcome!
