Gabfire Themes Overview

Gabfirethemes is owned by an independent web designer and web project consultant based in Estonia. Gabfire Themes has a large variety of themes suitable for personal website, business, magazines and especially news website. New themes are constantly created, and you can view a live demo of themes that you are interested in before buying them.

Theme Functionality

There are 7 themes as of now available on Gabfire Themes. This is comparatively a minor selection on offer. But that said, Gabfire Themes are designed exceptionally well and customers have always been satisfied in the past. The themes are compatible with all the leading browsers of today like Internet Explorer, Chrome, Firefox and others like Safari, Opera and Netscape.

Gabfirethemes should especially be bought if you wish to publish news online. The majority of the themes available are newspaper themes, each theme designed to be able to carry and display a lot of information in a compact form.

Theme Graphics

Most Gabfire themes are designed to act as newspapers. As a result, you cannot expect anything flashy from the newspapers themes. But that does not mean that Gabfire themes aren’t attractive. They look good in a subtle kind of way. There is a lot of space for you to display a lot of text without it looking crammed. There is a lot of space for advertisements, for pictures and, of course, a header headline. The fonts are attractive too.

The magazine themes are also pretty good, with eye catching colors which can be customized according to your preference

Theme Pricing– base on July 2010 data

Gabfire themes can be bought for a price of $49, which is the basic package. The cost includes WordPress and theme installation. The standard package is available for $99 and includes the installation, WordPress and SEO optimization of the website. The Premium package is priced at $199 and the Professional Package varies in cost. An upgrade to the better packages allows you to enjoy more features. The best part about all this is that you don’t need to know anything about WordPress and themes, because Gabfirethemes do all the work for you.

Theme Support

If you buy a Gabfire theme, you will receive support via the forum. The support forum is regularly visited by customers and experts alike. Any
problem that you may have is likely to have already been resolved for a previous customer, and you will find the solution on the forum. You can also start your own new topic for a different problem.

Theme License

100% GPL for CSS, XHTML, PHP, design and any other elements.

    Gabfire themes are wonderful. To work with these themes are enjoyable.
    Graphics are OK. Pricing is reasonable. Technical support is perfect.
    They are the best themes around. I highly recommend these lovely themes to all.

    Gabfire themes look great but have serious coding problems. Although it looks good out of the box, issues begin developing as you personalize it. Unless you hire tech support, the theme becomes unusable. I suspect they make their money from tech support, which becomes vital as the theme has coding issues.

    I run 4 sites using these gab themes. I don’t know what people are even talking above when i read comments above. These are not standard themes, they are freakin amazing themes. I try at least 5 other theme shops and gab themes are like 10x more options, 10x better support, and I run real sites that make money. The options in gab themes are not in any theme out there, and the guy mehmet and boylogik on support forum are on forums every day. I know becuz i ask questions on forums and get answer directly from them.

    for that price, i wuld never again buy the stupid themes from others that have only blog style. gab themes have that and way more features like real newspapers all for 1 low price. Crazy some comments here make it sound like its not good. if so, i wanna know any other theme wit similar features?

    I’m so frustrated with my Gabfire theme. The functionality is garbage, the site takes forever to load and bogs itself down with poorly formulated hierarchies. The tech support is nonexistent and I’m half convinced most of the reviews and the accounts on the Gabfire site are bots used to make the company look good. No support from day one and even though I paid a cool $75 for my theme, they STILL want me to pay AT LEAST $60 a month to access the support forums…

    What on earth is this company trying to pull? Are you kidding me?

      I have send hundred of emails asking for help with my theme and nobody reply

      Mitch, hold on fella, this group of folks at Gabfire will bend over backwards any day of the week to help you. Their themes work very well, are beautifully designed, and I highly recommend them.

      I have used their design Transcript, had great help over the 4-5 years and would not consider another company.

      I wish they would come out with a template for a Community Calendar, a real need in communities across the country, nothing available.

    I think the theme support is a solid 9-10 out of ten… you usually got a good answer in a matter of hours, often with a custom code ! i ve never seen anything like that.

    for my magazine-websites Gabfire is the only good solution i found so far.
    my only small concern is that themes are not responsive ( jan 2013) and sometime the graphic choice are not so “clean” and elegant on a couple of older theme…

    but overally I like gafire a lot

    Gab Fire is amazing! I recently bought my theme and have had no problems! Easy tutorials for a beginner like me.

    The newspaper themes from Gabfire are the good.
    Gabfire Themes since a while I haven’t had any problem, and also did not notice any negative comments from any user so far.

    Surprised to see comments related to attractiveness. I personally love their themes and think they’re well designed. But more importantly, I care more about support, configurable options, and themes that get high traffic, and those are areas those guys wipe out the competition. I’ve used at least half a dozen theme shops, and they don’t come close to the support these guys provide. Not only that, there’s probably an option for everything you can imagine behind each theme. So not sure what people judge themes on, but I’d say those are the more important things. I personally don’t care much for graphics because I’m going to replace them myself anyway to make my site unique. I care about things working!

    You get a excellent Newspaper website out of the box, theme control panel is amazing it let’s you configure your website and get exactly what you want.

    Great support, usually my questions were replied in minutes, even in Sunday.

    The SEO is excellent.

    Highly recommended

    “Everything in one shot”

    I have never seen WP themes like the ones from Gabfire Themes.  They’re fantastic! 

    All the data I need to present is in one display.  There’s no more page turning, page hunting and too much clicking here.

    Tom,
    I as web designer referred over 10 of my clients to gabfire themes before. As routine procedure they registered support forums, and within maximum 5-6 hours they were approved. I believe most of design companies have an approval queue that I seen before in studiopress as well. They protect themselves from warez downloaded theme’s users.

    If you have purchased your theme from elsewhere on net and not from gabfire themes itself, as usual you wouldn’t have any support. You might be right with what you wrote above, but being an active user of Gabfire Themes since a while I haven’t had any problem, and also did not notice any negative comments from any user so far. I have to admin that they are great with support, the best i have seen.

    Their support forum is no help if you have any issues with the theme. Although you paid for the theme, an administrator has to approve you even to search the forums to find any help. Just plain BS, considering the availability of tons of free themes. I have problems with thumbnail image with their Suvi theme, been waiting for days without approval for searching their forums for answers. They don’t respond to the emails too. Utter waster. Stay away.

    I have always been contented with Gabfire. They have exactly that corporate newspaper-style reporting which is what I need for my blog.

    Their themes are very functional as well, allowing me to update my contents very quickly and accurately.

    I personally do not like very flashy themes as they tend to steal the attention of my readers and they do not make for a good long read.

    The colors are attractive enough though so as not to bore my readers away. All things considered, I have everything that I would ever need from the company for my online presence.

    The newspaper themes from Gabfire are the best!  All the information I need to give to my readers displayed in one compact page. Now they don’t get lost on the site. They have no room to move away from my page now.

    “Where’s the life?”

    I needed a place where I could display a lot of information and I went with Gabfirethemes. 

    My mistake, I didn’t really check into the designs they have.  They’re so newspaper black and white, no life whatsoever.

    “you wouldn’t look twice”

    gabfirethemes leave everything to the imagination.  there’s nothing really attractive with the themes they have and they only have seven to choose from, mind you.  why’d they even set up a wp theme providing business?

    “Too plain. Too few themes..”

    I don’t like Gabfirethemes because their themes are very plain and limiting. They have very little theme selections so I don’t feel the value I’m paying for their price.

    I’m seriously considering switching to another company if this kind of services continues. Maybe I’ll switch to someone offering themes for free.

    Ever since I used Gab Fire Themes for my site, traffic had significantly increased much to my delight. Choosing their theme was one of the best decisions I’ve made for my site as it’s truly well worth it. Installing one of their professionally designed themes is a breeze with their excellent online support forum. I really haven’t encountered any problems so far on the different WP themes I’ve used from the company. Thank you Gabfire! You are highly recommended with a rating of A+!
