I am very happy to announce that I am releasing my first free WordPress theme ever. It is called “Master” and it’s a simple, yet powerful theme that can be used as a blog or magazine. It is a very light theme coded in a minimalistic fashion. I know that it is not the best theme out there and it is not even the best of what I can accomplish with WordPress, but what makes is a special theme is the fact that it will have premium and very affordable, yet admirable, support and customization services around it.
Do I have to pay for the theme?
No, the theme will be available for free download and usage. The theme in fact is being released under the GPL license which is the same license that WordPress uses. The theme will also have free updates and upgrades forever. Also, I hope we guys build a great support forum for this theme and others to come which will also be free to access, ask and answer.
What do I have to pay for than?
You might never have to pay for anything. But, in case you need help to set up the theme, configure the plugins etc, you might want to buy one of the five (5) service packages that will come along with the theme. These packages vary from setup to theme enhancements and even PSD to the actual theme. More information about this topic will come along with the theme release.
How much do I have to wait for the theme?
Hopefully, not much. I have submitted the theme to WordPress theme directory and as soon as the guys of WordPress make the theme come live, I will make it available for my readers too. I fact I want the theme to be downloaded only from WordPress theme directory, that is why I am not releasing it right now, even thought the theme can be called finished. I think the guys at WordPress won’t need more than 2-3 days to approve it.
Where can I preview the theme?
Just below. I am attaching an image preview of the theme for the curious guys to have a look and hopefully make comments, suggestions and constructive criticism if there is needed any.
