Welcome to the all new WPExplorer! I hope you like our new coat of paint. It’s been a while sine we’ve made any changes to the site, so we decided a complete overhaul was in order and we thought we’d walk you through a couple of the changes we made.
Did you see that awesome brand new logo at the top of the page? Our friend Stevan Rodic put together the design for us and we couldn’t be happier. We finally have a logo to go along with our name, and we think the telescope is a perfect fit. Keep your eye out for some awesome swag giveaways in the future – I’m pretty sure we’re going to be putting this logo on just about everything.
So many changes have been made to our site. We completely re-did the color scheme and went for something lighter and easier on the eyes. Plus, the new colors really make that awesome logo I already talked about really pop and if you checked out the homepage it’s full of all sorts of fun new features!
The changes don’t stop there – be sure to check out all our pages. We’ve updated the “Themes” and “Plugins” pages to make it easier for you to find what you’re looking for. A clean grid layout showcases the latest items we’ve added to the site, and the “find a theme” search box on the “Themes” page makes it easy to choose a category to browse.
An all new hosting sections provides you with lots of info and snapshots of some of the best WordPress hosting companies out there. We’ve put together summaries of the features, plans, and pricing for what we consider to be the top hosting providers. We’re also looking for you to leave reviews of your host if it’s one of the ones listed. So if you’re using any of the hosts we’ve included let us and other readers know how they really perform (whether it’s good or bad – we want to know!).
For our videos we switched over to Screenr. We upped the screen size so you don’t have to squint so much when watching the video directly on our site.
We also changed up the blog. You can clearly see the author’s avatar, since we ant you to get to know them as well as we do. Bolder headings make it easier for you to see the main blog post topics
3 new free themes! Crazy right? We were so excited about the new design, we were overflowing with extra design ideas and wanted to share them with all of you.

Tweaky Tweak Your WordPress Themes
You may notice a new form at the bottom of the Free Themes’ description posts. What is this all about? Well, we’ve partnered up with a cool site called Tweaky that will make “tweaks” to your WordPress themes for a fee. We love creating and giving away free themes, however, we simply can not provide support to all of our “free-loaders”. So if you are using any of our free themes and need some help changing anything, these are the ones to ask. They’ll provide you with a quote for the project and if it’s good with you then you can go ahead and use their service.
