We have prepared a free version of all our premium or directory themes for each one of our customers. Thanks to this you can try any theme prior subscribing to Full Membership. What can the free themes be used for?
Trial version for testing purposes
The theme trial version can be used for testing of the product. You can check how the theme looks like exactly, get familiar with its administration, you can try the settings in the Theme Options section and find out, if the theme suits your needs – from the visual as well as the technical point of view. You can examine if it meets your expectations. The 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 will look like.
Full-featured personal website for non-commercial use
Apart from the theme testing itself, you can use the Free theme to create your own website for your own personal presentation. Trial version gives you full-featured:
- General layout settings
- Import of demo content for upload of your own prearranged content
Thanks to AitThemes you get the best premium free theme for non-commercial use.
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.
