    Sig,

    I enjoy reading your blog and find much of the information you provide very useful. I’m curious, though, as to how you could leave Studio Press/Genesis out of the mix when it comes to WordPress themes.

    Thanks for what you do.

    Sig, thank You for including Templamatic in the list of big players in the template business =) ! @ Templamatic we grow a community of enthusiastic web designers/coders who are willing to create themes even for underrated , (but awesome) CMS platforms whose creators don’t have much resources for marketing =) (e.g.: Silex CMS, Impresspages, gpEasy, etc)

    Awesome piece of insight on different theme sites. The theme site that I like most is templatemonster. However I missed TemplateMela from the list. I have a collection of some good free themes for PrestaShop store. Have a look on them also: http://www.fmemodules.com/en/blog/27-10-fresh-and-free-prestashop-themes-for-2015

    All the above mentioned websites for themes and plugins are indeed very useful and helpful. They have been used by a large majority of people also. I have been researching for good plugins for Woocommerce, Magento and WordPress and a few days ago, I came across http://www.fmeaddons.com which I found very useful.
