From $39 for Individual Themes
Theme Junkie was established in 2009 and is a well-known brand in the WordPress marketplace.
I’ve been working with them for more than 4 years in several sites, and in my case their theme updates were without any issues.
This is important: not all theme suppliers code their themes properly and that can lead to plugin conflicts.
Of course, plugin incompatibilities can appear at any moment, but with a well written WP theme, the chances are minimal.
To test it, I installed locally with a full set of my default plugins, and I was playing with its settings-options for some time.
Want to know why I call it flexible and user-friendly?
Let’s go and continue reading to find out the reasons 🙂
Theme Junkie Themes Review
You know, a picture is worth a thousand words, right?
Therefore I’ve taken screenshots like crazy of the Publisher junkie theme, and you’ll see the “under the hood” of WordPress Theme Junkie themes.
Theme Junkie General Settings

- Exclude pages from the nav-bar, if you want to
- Display Home link – I display it in my cases
- Add drop menus
- Control the Number of dropdown tiers shown
- Order Pages Links by Ascending/Descending
Here, you’ve control over Homepage and Single Posts/Pages in different tabs.
On the homepage you can enable featured content (great, if you’ve some post to highlight), controlled by special tags that you must specify. Also you can determine the number of characters to show for post excerpts (default is 180)
Carousel with total administration in terms of categories and posts.
Enable a 728×90 pixel-ad to your header – useful to insert e.g. Adsense or another Ad Networks.
It’s a very complete tab full of possibilities, namely:
- Custom title
- Meta description
- Meta keywords (I don’t recommend to enable: is devaluated and you tell others your keywords)
- Home page custom title, meta description, etc.
If you need a SEO basic-floor, these customizations are enough.
If not, I suggest using a free plugin that is a heavy weight for SEO: WordPress SEO by Yoast

Theme Junkie Widgets
Here you’ve a plethora of different widgets to several purposes: Flickr, Ad 125 x125, Twitter, Videos and so on.
(E.g. here is a screenshot of the widget social profiles with the main social networks)
I tried for the purpose of this test, the Twitter widget with my accounts, and I aimed to display them on the sidebar or footer, but I got zero – nada.
I don’t know why this is not working. It’s a small thing to research further, if I need later 😉

In terms of cons honestly, I'm not seeing any evident that I need to pinpoint apart from the mentioned in this Theme Junkie review.
I’ve heard that they have a solid support via online forums available for their premium themes, but I didn’t try still by myself, to endorse it to a 100%. When I had a doubt, I solved myself with the theme's documentation.
They are offering WordPress high quality themes with affordable prices. Their theme pricing, allows you 3 options to choose from, for different budgets and goals.
Really, I liked the Publisher theme in particular (you can use updated alternatives to this theme), and Theme Junkie themes in general, for their functionality. You can customize lots of things with their advanced control panels.
