ThemeHunt, your trusted hub of quality website themes is rebooting as a platform of free items. Ever since we decided to shut it down, many of you felt down and got frustrated. After reading your reactions to the closure announcement through emails and messages on social media, we understood how ThemeHunt is deeply rooted to many of your hearts.

So, we are reconsidering our previous decision and thinking that ThemeHunt deserves a come back but in a different model that neither lets it die nor affects people’s businesses. With that in mind, we are rebooting ThemeHunt as a platform for FREE website themes and templates on October 1st, 2018.

What it means for the users

Anybody having or opening an account on ThemeHunt will be able to download all of the available items completely free of cost starting from October 1st, 2018. 

What it means for the authors

Since we are making it a free platform, all of the items will go free. As an author, you have the freedom to decide what to do with your items. If you keep them live on ThemeHunt, your items will be free starting from October 1st, 2018 as mentioned above. But there’s still a lot for you to get out of this free platform.

Here’s how the authors can be benefited from this shift:

  • A robust platform to showcase your themes and templates at no cost
  • Exposure to a large number of target audience
  • Opportunity to promote your business as a brand for FREE
  • Building links to any relevant Pro items you may have anywhere else
  • Contributing to the community with quality free web templates

Authors who don't want their items on this hub to be free can take them down anytime. Otherwise, all the existing items will be considered free effective from October 1st, 2018.

Making a marketplace like ThemeHunt free is a major shift. Many of you know what it takes to maintain such a platform. From our part, we will do everything it takes to make it flourish. But expanding ThemeHunt now, does not only depend on us. We want our community to play a big role here as well. You can contribute to the community by submitting your themes to ThemeHunt and spreading it by sharing wherever applicable. Let’s do something together for the community.
