  1. Thank you very much for this outstanding collection! It is very interesting and it will help me a lot in future. Here you can find a lot of WordPress themes from the same topic that you could use in your future projects to satisfy your clients.

    1. Dan,

      It is nice to see you again!
      I still can’t get it why your website URL is not caught by Akismet but I don’t think it will take too long. Your comments will be moderated each and every single time, so feel free to post on all of our 150 articles and several thousands forum threads that are also moderated 🙂

  2. Hello Aigars,

    I cannot submit any post on the travelify support forum can you tell me what is wrong.

    Regards WIMA

    1. Wima,

      Don’t use any shady links when you are posting on forum and you should be fine.
      If you tried too many times you might be banned permanently by Akismet but your messages will appear eventually but after manual review but it might take weeks.

  3. Aigars your themes are fine. please can i get a free theme customized for portfolio, articles, forum and blogging at the same time, because later i would check if i can buy

    1. Francis,

      Most of above listed themes does exactly that but all these are premium WordPress themes. If free themes is what you are after you might want to check this collection instead. Let me know if you have some more specific requirements in mind and I will try to help you from there.

  4. Hello Aigars
    How did you choose those themes for this collection? Have you aready try those before?


    1. I haven’t used all of those themes but a lot of theme I have therefore I can provide with some recommendations. Sometimes it is easy to understand how theme will work based on description alone. For example if it uses WordPress Customizer, Slider Revolution, Visual Composer, Redux Theme Options and that sort of thing. There are loads of similarities between themes and I am more concentrating on differences that makes them special.
