    I assume the OP was talking about forum platforms (vBulletin, Xenforo, etc.).

    For Xenforo, PixelExit hands down in my opinion. :)

    For vBulletin, it's hard to say. Many that used to be good have disappeared and moved on to other platforms. I like the Metro styles available from PixelGoose at ThemeForest but in general I find Themeforest/Envato to be very hit or miss. Some styles (and plugins/addons) there are good and some are dreadful; some sellers there provide acceptable to decent support and again some are just horrible. It definitely caveat emptor on that site.

    I can't speak to other forum platforms - I have used some of them but not for years.

    Well, there you go. I didn't even know there WAS a WordPress section. :)

    Avoid most of the garbage on Envato/Themeforest, so many bundled addons which slow down your site big time.
    Look for pro versions of popular free themes. I am working with Hueman Pro right now: https://presscustomizr.com/hueman-pro/

    Sure. You must do your due diligence with ANY pre-made WP theme.
    Saying that most of the Envato/Themeforest themes are garbage is nonsense though.

    I agree. Envato/Themeforest is now the largest site out there for pro themes and plugins. It contains its share of rubbish but there is some good stuff there too and some great support.

    Read the reviews before you buy. :)

    All the top rated/most downloaded are massively bloated. Dig around in the lesser known stuff and you might find something nice.

    You should go to themeforest to get different designs for the websites.
