Introducing SiteOrigin.com – home to quality free WordPress themes and plugins

In this WordPress Community video, I highlight the work of Greg Priday, a South African developer who has released some high quality free WordPress themes and plugins.

This is the latest video in my “WordPress Community” series, which takes a look at some of the most promising work in and around WordPress today, including theme and plugin developers to WordPress educators and evangelists.

In this video, I highlight the high quality free WordPress themes and plugins by a South African developer called Greg Priday. Greg runs a site called SiteOrigin.com and he describes the site's main goal in the following terms:

With SiteOrigin I’d like to break the perception that free means junk. I put a lot of effort into crafting code that is secure, reliable and most of all – useful. All my themes and plugins are and always will be 100% free.

This statement caught my attention and I include here as a reminder of the passion and commitment that characterizes many of those involved in WordPress. Greg has released four free themes and two plugins to date and I take a look at a theme called “Origami”, a minimal and elegant single column theme with a responsive layout and support for multiple post-types.

I'm always on the look out for new WordPress sites and developers, so if you have suggestions for things you'd like me to include in this series, please let me know, either on Twitter, Facebook or via the contact form. Thanks very much.

Hi Will, First, let me say that this is a great portfolio of information you are creating here. I’ve been trying to expand my knowledge of WordPress over the past few months and this site has really helped me out. I have been focusing mainly on free themes while I get my feet wet. I had no idea how many themes (premium, free, good, bad, and ugly) there were out there! It’s really great that you take the time to highlight the best ones. I’m also glad to see SiteOrigin creating beautiful, safe, and free themes for the community. During… Read more »
