The Elegant Themes team have developed each theme down to the smallest detail and to the highest standard, delivering a professional and simple look that comes with many additional features.
Currently there are 80 stunning WordPress themes to choose from, which cover anything from blogs to professional websites. With so much choice there is something to suit every taste, whether elegant, stylish or minimalist. Searching for the right theme is made easy with all themes grouped into categories such as blog, business, multi-media and e-commerce. For each theme there is a detailed description of all functions as well as a live demo.
In addition to WordPress themes, Elegant Themes also offer four useful plug-ins. With the help of plug-ins, you can control the look and behaviour of the site and lists, buttons or sliders giving a personal touch.
All themes available to buy on Elegant Themes have ePanel, a feature rich interface that allows you to manage and edit the theme. The interface allows you to change the code of the theme in an easy-to-use way, meaning you can adapt the theme to suit your own needs. Furthermore, with ePanel you have access to SEO management tools where you can design titles, headings and keywords for search engine optimisation.
Purchase and Payment
Elegant Themes sets a price of $39 per year, which gets you access to all 80 premium themes. That works out at an incredibly cheap $0.49 per theme. It’s not possible to purchase themes individually, as it would be too uneconomical.
For access to all four WordPress plug-ins as well as all the themes the price is set at $89. At Elegant Themes there is neither a download limit nor restrictions on the use of the domain – as a result, themes can be used as often as you like.
To purchase the themes and plug-ins, follow the link to the online registration where you can opt for either the ‘staff’ or the ‘developer’ subscription. Both subscriptions provide access to all current themes, regular updates and offer support through their experienced customer service. Additionally, there is subscription access to all plug-ins and Photoshop files for developers.
Once you have chosen a subscription plan it will be sent to the registry and then requires payment in US dollars through PayPal. The membership fee will be deducted from your account annually by PayPal but you can cancel your membership subscription at any time.
