YITH themes are back! Proteo theme released! And it’s totally FREE

People who have followed YITH from its very beginning know well that we started out with and were only focused on the development of WordPress themes (that’s why you find the ‘Th’ sound in the word YITH, as it stands for Your Inspiration Themes). We used to sell them on Themeforest marketplace, where we were top authors with some best seller themes (like Maya, Bazar etc…). Until we decided to move our business on to the development of WooCommerce plugins and put the template business on one side.

But you know what? First love lasts forever.

That’s why on the pretext of designing a new template for our plugin live demos, we’ve built Proteo, a minimal and elegant e-commerce theme that will gradually replace the default template used in all our live demos (let’s be honest, they really needed a refresh).

But we couldn’t keep such a beautiful theme on which we worked so hard for ourselves, or limit its use to our live demos only. It would go to waste.

So, we’re pretty sure you’d appreciate that we will share Proteo with the community and release it as a free theme on WordPress.org.
The theme will be soon added to the official WordPress.org themes repository and it’s now available on our Github account for any pull requests and issue reports. We can’t wait to get your opinion and suggestions: we’ll make this theme the best free solution ever, together!
