Are you a free CSS template designer?

Last Updated on by

I’ll code your templates into WordPress for free. If you design free open source CSS templates and looking for a WordPress coder to port your template, I’m your guy. If you don’t know what WordPress is, it’s a powerful and very popular blog publishing software. This site uses it, along with countless other blogs and websites.

I’ll do this at absolutely no cost to you, the designer. All I ask is a link back to this site in the footer of the theme release, which I think is a small price to pay for the additional exposure both of us receive. I’ll also put it up for download and announce it on the site. I’ve worked with a couple other designers in coding their free templates into WP. Free WordPress themes such as Simply AIO, WP Stylish, Tech Blue, and Retro Green were all designed by others and originally coded in just XHTML/CSS before we ported them into WordPress.

Of course I prefer to work with well coded, good looking templates that will potentially attract a lot of downloads. Feel free to contact me through the contact form if interested. Thanks!

    Yes…I am no designer myself but have often wished many of the css templates were available as themes. Good luck and will be checking back.

    @Pete: Thanks for the kind words!

    @icy1: Yes, I feel the same way, which is why I’m offering this. Which designs in particular were you interested in? I could try contacting the designers and let them know about my offer directly.

    Wow, that’s a fantastic offer. I was just lamenting the fact that I keep promising WP themes of my templates, but never have the time to deliver. Just sent a message via your contact form if you’d like to port any of mine.

  • Leland

    Wow, this has really been an overwhelming response! I pretty much have my hands full with CSS templates to port, so bear with me. =)

    Are you serious!?! This is amazing! You are so generous! I know I am posting 4 years ahead of everyone else, but if this offer is still going, I’m ready!!
