My very first public WordPress theme (released in November ’08) is closing in on 9,000 downloads from WordPress.org, thanks mostly to it being on the front page the whole time. If you’ve downloaded and/or used Rusty Grunge on your WordPress-powered site, I’d like to say thank you for the props and for letting me know about any and all bugs in the theme. I am currently working on adding support for WP 2.7′s threaded comments and addressing some issues with search and category display.
You can download Rusty Grunge here or take a test drive to see what it’s all about.
As always, there will be more free themes in the future, so continue to check back regularly. I also plan on releasing themes for Elgg, an open-source social networking platform and Drupal in the near future in addition to my usual WordPress themes.
