400+ Beautiful & Attractive X Theme Examples

Heads up 🤓

This article was posted on Mar 7, 2017 and might be out of date.

When kicking off a new venture or freelance project I use a list of X Theme Shortcodes in conjunction with Land Book, LAPA and Uplabs.

This week I had to reach out to the X Theme support because I had some issues with Cornerstone conflicting with a security plugin.

Luckily the X Theme forum is very responsive and we’d it figured out in no time.

When I was scrolling, scrolling down the river — to the bottom of the X Theme forum to submit a ticket, I stumbled upon the Showcase your website thread.

The X Theme forum team (say that 10 times), actively sources X powered websites from that thread and showcases them on a dedicated page.

However, that wonderful resource wasn’t enough for me.

I constantly clicked on websites I already visited or found myself visiting the lower quality sites. (Trust me, you’re not one of them)!

So guess what I did?

I blocked a couple hours on my calendar scraped Themeco’s webpage and went through a list of 400 + websites.

I also used WP By Example as an additional resource and to reverse engineer some of the research.

You can call me crazy, go ahead.

Here’s my workflow

  • Take the link of the website.
  • Jot down the title of the website.
  • Quality rate it between 1-3, whereas 1 is best.
  • Take a screenshot with this Chrome extension

The end result was this Google Sheet.

Out of those 400 X Theme examples, I picked my personal top 20 which are shown below in no particular order.

If you like to add your website to the list I suggest submitting to the existing thread on the X Theme forum.

Cheers Creative

I spoke with Dana, the founder of Cheers Creative. She has done truly amazing things with the X Theme,

Dana, founder of Cheers Creative: “I started using the X Theme for WordPress about three years ago and it caused a major turning point in my business. I used to just offer print design, and at one point I was struggling to learn web design. Working with WordPress and the X theme helped me to get into the web design business, and at the same time it exposed me to code.”
