Introducing Okay Themes by Mike McAlister

Okay Themes

If you follow WPCandy, you might remember a highly commented on article by popular ThemeForest author Mike McAlister titled A Hypercritical Analysis of $35 WordPress Themes. In his opinion (and many agree), ThemeForest prices are too low compared to other theme shops with comparable quality WordPress themes who are charging $50 to $75 a pop and able to use those resources to provide adequate support. Now it cannot be denied that several ThemeForest authors are wildly successful, but the fact of the matter is that it can still be difficult to provide “optional” support for a complex theme that only nets the designer $15 to $25 after ThemeForest’s share.

Introducing Okay Themes

So with that said, we are happy to welcome Okay Themes to ThemeSorter. This is Mike’s brand-new one-man WordPress theme shop in which he will experiment with selling his ultra-clean, modern designs directly to you. The cost per theme during this introductory period is $25 a pop. Yes, that is less than ThemeForest! But don’t worry, he assures us that prices will increase in January. You can also buy a pack of all four current themes for $50. Unlike the ThemeForest license, you can use themes from his new shop on multiple websites. Support is available in his forum. Oh, and you can play Tetris on his website.

Mission Control WordPress Theme

Mission Control

This is a single page portfolio WordPress theme by Mike McAlister. The menu scrolls to sections (about, portfolio, blog, etc.). What’s really neat about it is that even though it is on one page, it offers you the ability to really create a complete site. When you click a portfolio item, for example, it opens in a lightbox with full details and even comments. The blog works the same.
