Theme-Junkie Overview

Theme-junkie is a newly opened premium WordPress theme provider in 2009. The company offers user-friendly, great looking, and efficient WordPress themes.

Like many other online WP theme providers in the likes of Graphpaperpress, Theme-junkie is also known to provide excellent support forums to all its clients. If there is a distinctive feature unique with the company, it is definitely their very affordable prices which is almost comparable to Wpnow.com’s rate, and is great for users and developers who are looking to save up on their start-up blog site costs.

Theme-junkie’s themes are licensed under GPL. Their themes are proud to be in full compliance with W3C standards and all the licenses set forth by WordPress.

Although the company offers great support network, unfortunately, this is only limited to their paying customers and not for their free account holders.


Theme Functioniality

Theme-Junkie: Theme Functioniality - 9 out of 10

If you think that your current WP theme provider gives you excellent functionality, then it may be high time for you to rethink that with Theme-junkie.

Although the company may not compete with the likes of Elegantthemes when it comes to graphic sophistication, they definitely are not lacking in great functional features. In fact, they have some of the best functionalities that we believe are far better than other equally great WP theme providers.

Theme-Junkie, being relatively new to the industry, has one of the most advanced theme control panels. In here, you can auto resize your thumbnails for easier management, you can switch your preferred logo in text or image format, and you are able to easily post advertisements on your blog site with a fully widgeted sidebar function.

All of their WP themes are localization ready, has built-in FeedBurner support and an analytic stat manager where you can put threaded comments. On top of that, all of their WP themes are Gravatar ready, with customizable page templates and custom widgets.

Users and developers aren’t the only parties who will benefit from Theme-junkie’s great functionalities; your online visitors will do as well with their user-friendly drop-down menu navigation which is compatible with both WordPress 3.0 and Cross Browsers.

Last but definitely not the least is their excellent online support forum and a lifetime upgrade feature for all of their WP themes.


Theme Graphics

Theme-Junkie: Theme Graphics - 6 out of 10

Admittedly, Theme-junkie’s theme graphics aren’t as sophisticated as the graphics by other top WP theme providers like Woothemes, and there aren’t as many options to choose from as well. This is not to belittle the company as they competitively offer a total of thirteen different themes to choose from.

It is also important to note that being a new player in the industry, the company is sure to release more and better themes for their customers in the near future.

Their theme graphic entry starts with FashionPress which is their most basic and given to free account holders, though it is not the only one. Another free theme that they have is Channel, with slightly different graphic features compared to FashionPress. Their paid packages include Newswire, Gadget, FashionPro (an updated version of FashionPress), BigFoot, NewsTube, Freshlife, and their newest graphic theme entry, Weekly.


Theme Pricing

Now tell me: which WP theme provider can offer their entire great theme packages, all for under $100? We guarantee you that no one can beat that kind of price scheme. If you wish to buy their themes individually, they come at $19.95 each; come on, with these kind of pricing, need we say more?


Theme Support

Another unique and great feature of Theme-junkie is that they do not only provide WP theme support to all of their paying clients, they also provide other essential information that their customers may need in setting up their individual blog site/s even if it is not related to WP themes in particular, like web hosting, affiliate marketing, and other useful online information.

Theme-junkie great online support forum is hosted by their developers, Mayur and Radek (sorry, no last names). They have an online help support feature where customers can register and log in for help. They have an online board with limited information on theme customization and support for free account users, and a more specialized announcement board for their premium customers.

      Please stay away from Theme Junkie. I had purchased the lifetime option for $99. I even sent a mail to Roy the owner to double check. He said as a lifetime member I would receive all future updates. However after one year, I was not able to access the membership area. I have sent multiple requests both in the forum and to Roy. Its been many months since, still have not received access.

    Negative on good-looking

    Theme-junkie claims that their themes are visually appealing but to me their themes are eye sores!

    I gave it the benefit of the doubt and tried checking on their other WordPress themes and nothing seems to appealing.

    WordPress themes from TJ are easy to use. It’s so easy to understand and I have fun working with it.

    I even had fun exploring the theme and customizing it without a slight hesitation of messing it up.

    Very standard

    With so many WordPress themes provider nowadays, a provider that has an edge in design, technology, functionality and pricing is the logical choice.

    Unfortunately Theme-junkie is just like any other provider. Their themes have no edge!

    Cheap price, cheap services – what do you expect? I should have known the kind of services Theme-junkie offers at $30 a theme.

    I should have stayed with my previous WP theme provider because even though they charged a higher rate, they exactly had what I needed for my website. I’m flatly disappointed.

    I’m a certified theme junkie! Theme-junkie is definitely a keeper.

    Right now, they are at the top of my list. I have a community blog and I have been flooded by a lot of invitations from fellow bloggers and readers to try them out so I did and they were wonderful!

    I now totally understand why a lot of my peers are now switching. Roy Guan is a genius and a people’s people. I love how he finds the time out of his busy schedule to personally look after his clients, because after all, it is his business. Two thumbs up for them!
