20 Under Construction \ Coming Soon WordPress Themes

| 25 Comments

Check out http://launchfactor.com - a site dedicated solely to these types of themes for WordPress.

It’s called by many names: Under construction; Holding page; Placeholder; Domain park; Coming soon etc etc.

Whether you are about to launch a new website or you are doing a major overhaul to your blog, you have to keep your visitors informed about what is going on. This is where an ‘under construction’ theme is your friend. There is nothing more irritating than visiting a site from a Google search, only to find a 404 page-not-found error or sometimes even a 500 server error. You want to keep your existing readers informed of any downtime and let them know when your site is expected to come back up. If your site hasn’t launched yet, you want to try and gain some new RSS subscribers or Twitter followers, and at the very least, inform them of the launch date. (There is nothing better than a bit of pre-launch anticipation!)

So here are a few WordPress themes to help you with a new launch or some planned downtime.

Anticipate

Author: Elegant Themes
Price: $39 for over 50 themes including Anticipate

Nice collection of Under Construction Themes Brad! I like the Cool Under Construction Theme and Anticipate.
Downloaded the Placeholder Theme when I saw the link from Twitter 2 weeks ago. :)
