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.
