With around 3,600 WordPress themes currently being sold on ThemeForest, it is quite difficult to choose the “best” WordPress themes in their marketplace. OK, it is not difficult to choose the best designs, however it is difficult for us all to agree on what the best designs are. My top twenty WordPress themes will be different to Sam’s and will no doubt be different to yours.
Despite this, I wanted to curate a list of the best designs on ThemeForest; and what better way to do this than by listing the themes with the most sales. By their very nature, these are the WordPress designs that the WordPress community has voted for with their wallets.
Without further ado, here is a list of the most popular WordPress themes on ThemeForest 🙂
