Howdy from sea!
My name is Nicolas, I’m the founder of OceanWP | a totally free WordPress theme.
I would like to tell you why I’ve created this theme in the first place.
Back in 2012 – wanting to create a blog and having no knowledge in development, I searched the web how to create a website.
I found WordPress, not knowing what it was, I watched several explanations for how to use it.
Thereafter, I began to change the default WordPress theme, the result was very bad. After watching several tutorials and videos, it began to look like something.
Then, by dint of improving free themes by adding new features, I realized that I loved doing that.
2013 – the next step was to improve my skills. I worked in a small business that sells WordPress themes. This lasted a few months, this year was crucial due that I learned a lot about the development.
2014 & 2015 – I worked in freelance on creating sites with WordPress. The problem was that I could not find a free theme that suited the projects of my customers, I had to either create a complete theme (which takes time) or purchase premium themes but it was a bad solution because it increased the price of the service and the customers often ask me how to do such and such manipulation due to the complexity of some premium themes.
So, the idea of creating a free theme that I could change depending of the project had come to mind.
2016 – After months of hard work, OceanWP emerged – a completely free theme, easy to set up with the idea of making the web a better place. The functionality of the theme can be expanded with the free and paid extensions.
Developers will appreciate his extensible codebase making it a joy to customise and extend.
Anyone with experience or not can add their web presence!
That’s why I’ve created OceanWP.
If you love the theme, please send me a message for your feedbacks and suggestions, it would make me very happy.
