I’m also curious to hear what your issues were with the Smashing Multimedia theme and the “incomplete code”? I may have to try that one out myself.

What were your issues exactly?

And glad you liked the rant, lol.

But have you seen Corporate Life? That’s beautiful and free too, I think. => http://www.getacustomdesign.com/news/corporate-life-free-wordpress-theme/

Anyway, good luck. You make some of the best free themes I’ve seen recently so I’m sure your upcoming magazine theme will be great.

Honestly I wouldn’t have had a problem if the headline was labeled as “paid/commercial themes” only, but it wasn’t.

Note that I changed my twitter account name: http://twitter.com/_fearlessflyer

I’m also working on another free magazine theme which should be ready soon. (I’m trying to get up to your collection).

I’ve seen the post you mentioned here as well as others that do the same thing. Again, it’s not the issue of having affiliate links, it’s the misrepresentation to the reading audience of an impartial list that was put together strictly on its artistic/aesthetic merits.

When you publish a post that says “The best of …” I take that to mean that you’ve done a sampling of all themes. Not just commercial ones. To publish a post under this heading and only list those that you’ ll receive a financial benefit from is disingenuous at best.

Great article, and even a greater thanks for taking the public stand
