A Truly Web 2.0 WordPress Blog Theme: Flexx

I don’t usually brag. I am a pretty low key type of guy. In fact, in San Francisco this year for WordCamp, I preferred anonymity. I like to sneak in the back and keep my head down. Way away from the limelight.

But I’m going to get outside my comfort zone and do a bit of overdo recognition to our five-member team at iThemes …which includes Nathan Rice, Jesse Petersen, Chris Jean and James Dalman.

Each one brings some great talent to our company … and today we just rolled out one awesome mega WordPress theme called FlexxTheme.

It’s truly the biggest and best theme project I’ve ever been a part of … we thought to ourselves, what do people want and need from a WP theme … and we built a theme around that.

The result?

A theme with …

  • Over 1,000 possible layout combinations
  • Plug and play graphical changes – including Flash-like rotating header images and easy background effects
  • A contact form page template already embedded
  • Simple search engine optimization tweaks

Oh! And it’s already WordPress 2.7 compatible! We’ve been testing it on the nightly build for over a week now. The demo site is even runnign 2.7.

Check out these terrible screencasts I just did showing off some of the functionality I mentioned above .. like the FlexxLayout that offers point and click layouts changes and making graphical changes easily.

Go test drive the two initial versions of FlexxTheme called Bold and Canvas … and find purchase details here


  1. WOW! I just purchased the ithemes package and this flex theme looks unbelievable. I do a lot of consulting with small business owners, and they kept asking me to do simple blog/website design for them. You guys have made it so easy to customize your themes that I have added this new niche to my current consulting business.

    Thanks so much.

  2. Flexx is a FANTASTIC theme. I can’t imagine anyone who is just getting started wanting any other theme. Kudos to everyone on your team.
