What can the free WordPress themes be used for?

  • Find out, if the theme suits your needs – from the visual as well as the technical point of view.

Make sure the theme meets your expectations before you invest your time and energy into building your entire website.

The best free theme contains everything what can be found in its full version, only some of its parts are not fully displayed (greyed out). These items get activated once the theme is upgraded to the full version.


Please bear in mind that the free theme is primarily designed for the theme testing purposes, not for the creation of commercial websites. Therefore some of the functionalities are limited. Elements and plugins are deactivated in the trial version, e.g. AIT Elements Toolkit.

Nevertheless the structure and location of individual elements & plugins is preserved therefore you can see all the theme elements and their arrangement. Thanks to this you have a great idea how the full version of your chosen WordPress theme looks like.

Added value of Free AitThemes

Main difference between our AitThemes and other free themes, which can be found e.g. on WordPress.org, is the utilisation of our themes for personal websites.

The themes downloaded from WordPress.org have very limited functionality and the websites that are built using these free themes cannot be fully used in real world.

On the contrary, Ait Free themes let you create full-featured personal presentation that can be published online without any problems and that can be continuously worked with in a simplified way.

Why are AIT Free themes better than WordPress.org free themes
