New Theme: React

Today, we’re happy to launch React, a simple and elegant theme designed especially for business websites. In fact, React is for anyone who would like a clean design to showcase their work and inspire visitors to — well — react. If this describes you, React is yours for the lifetime of your blog for only $68.

The React Theme

The React Theme

Designed by The Theme Foundry, React packs an impressive array of features. In the theme options panel, you can turn the sidebar on or off, depending on your preferences. You can also choose to display a recent projects footer, a latest news footer, and a widgets footer. Add a personal touch with your own logo, a custom background, your choice from one of 7 primary fonts, and links to your Facebook, Twitter, and Flickr profiles. Finally (but certainly not least), load your site on a mobile device or tablet and enjoy the view — React’s responsive layout adapts beautifully to smaller screen sizes.

Read more about React’s features on the Theme Showcase or preview it live on your blog from Appearance → Themes.

    Nice, but a bit too plain and too much of a corporate feel for my blog.

    Another attractive and innovative theme with useful features comes down the WordPress.com Theme Stream. My thanks to the WordPress.com Theme Team for being responsive to user requests for “portfolio” themes, and presenting us with a theme that has such great features. Your work is appreciated.

    It is very plain, but I can see where the point of all that plainness is to draw your attention to the eye candy.

    As you say, it is best suited for showcasing your products, art or photography.

    The thing about paid themes is that I would never do it because I am not one to stick with the same theme for years and years, no matter what some people might think about switching around. Since that is my case, I would not pay for a theme.

    This is not to detract from any new paid themes. They all look fine to me, though in fact, none look so superior that they are in a “pay” category superior to the other free themes.

    I like it, and I might cough up the Dollars for it in future (need to make those Dollars first.) I like it for two reasons: 1. The portfolio bit and 2. The fact that it changes to fit the device. And I love this post because you used the images of iMac, iPad, and iPhone to make your point :)

    React is definitely “premium.” I’ve been thinking about a Website for a political campaign, and React might be just right for that application. It’s “clean” without being “plain.” I especially like the choice of text fonts. As used in the “See it in action” demo, React works like a Web page, highlighting a few introductory items, but cleanly, without confusion. The blog becomes a separate link to the main Web page, and the Portfolio can be another major link.

    By comparison, Delicious Magazine is very good, but now looks too “busy” for my purposes. I do love the pull quote options in Delicious, however. I thought Twenty-Eleven was quite advanced when it was introduced not so long ago, but it pales in comparison to React and Delicious. I still think Twenty-Ten and Twenty-Eleven are the most sophisticated and versatile of the free themes.

    It is a lovely, clean, elegant, modern, magazine-style theme. I don’t mean to jump in and sound negative, but I’ve noticed some people get recognition for theme suggestions in the comments here. The clean/modern/etc stuff is lovely, and very nice. I’m still looking for themes that have more of an archaic, fantasy, medieval look. Themes suitable for writing fantasy and role-playing related stuff. Things that look more like vellum and parchment and old books than glossy magazine stock.

    So props to your work. But maybe somewhere along the line….. you know? Something different? ;) Thanks for reading!
