Top 10 Best WordPress Theme Providers

Top 10 Theme Providers

Ranking in this category is system generated.

Welcome to the 2014 Edition of ThemeGrade’s popular Top 10. We have been very selective as to which themes are included in our directory. During months of relentless search for quality WordPress Themes, we now have listed 2583 Themes developed by 377 providers.

And among these providers, we’re looking for the cream of the crop!

You have seen the top 10 Theme providers in the graphical, functionality and coding categories. This page combines the ratings in these 3 categories and reveals the top 10 Theme providers who excel in developing extraordinary WordPress Themes.

How Does The Ranking System Work?

The overall score of each developer is based on the sum of the providers’ score in each category. Theme providers with the highest overall score will be rated as the TOP WordPress Theme providers.

Take ElegantThemes for example: if they were to score 10, 9, and 9 in the graphical, functionality and coding categories respectively they would have the overall score of 28.

Our system takes into account user feedback and ratings as well as our own scoring system that is explained on each Theme review. Basically, we take into consideration all the important features of good WordPress Theme development, analyze these features on a Theme by Theme basis, then simplify it all down for our visitors to one, easy to understand score. Before buying your next WordPress Theme, be sure to check out their ThemeGrade!

WooThemes

5
Started by 3 designers in 3 different countries, WooThemes has become one of the biggest Wordpress theme providers with several dozen team members. In 2012 they made some business changes that did not go over very well with their community, and they have been slowly re-evaluating some of those decisions. In early 2013, they abruptly closed their affiliate program leaving thousands with a sudden and unexpected turn of events. While they continue to create themes, WooCommerce has become a staple part of their product offering.

Templatelite

Founded in 2008, Templatelite has got over 30 high quality themes in their portfolio. Professional graphic design and clean coding are what make it one of the best Wordpress theme providers.
