      If you take the time to look and see what the story is about, you’ll see it’s about FREE templates.

      What about FREE don’t you get?

      Who cares if you have a favorite template that costs money to get?

      If we’re gonna start posting links to templates that cost money, we’d be here all day.

      Quit spamming forums.

    • Gerhard

      It’s not free

    • m

      Like others already said, it’s about FREE templates. So you are an idiot! go and pay for ads, don’t use free comments to promote paid templates!

  6. susilom

    Thanks Allie for your work! I am trying one of them

  7. Ashish Ajani

    Really good collection, thank you for investing time in writing post and sharing this with us.

  8. KristoPL

    That Nook template isn’t free, please stop marketing your templates here.

    Also like someone already said all JoomlaShine templates in free versions are NOT responsive and very limited in features, compared to Purity III they’re just demo versions.

    I’ll try some other ones and let you know the results – anyway thanks for this useful article!

  9. KristoPL

    another advertising that put nothing into discussion – Allie, could you moderate those comments?

  10. Dany

    You can say those are free and responsive template. All of them in the free version are not responsive and with limited future. Come on guys, write an article like that it’s just spam and not cool at all. You’re just waist time of people.

  11. Tran Nam Chung

    Hi Allie Kingsley
    I really need your support.
    My name is Tran Nam Chung.
    I and my friends founded the JoomAvatar 3 years ago (This site provide Joomla Templates and Extensions)
    and some of our templates are was introduced in your site
    in this link
    The template is Avatar Nine Flat
    Firstly, thank you very much for doing this.
    But now, I founded my own website ( and do not work in JoomAvatar.
    I moved all my templates and extensions to my new site (
    So the old demo link and info link is not work. And most importantly, it does not show the correct information required.
    I send you this email to update the new link for my template
    Avatar Nine Flat Free Joomla 3.0

    Now the link war changed.
    But the editor made some mistake.
    Some strange string are inserted in the link.
    So when click on DEMO and INFO button.
    No page is open.
    Please, can you check it again for me.

    • Rio

      Hi, Thanks for notifying us. Allie is off this month. I have fixed the links as mentioned.

  12. Evelyn Morris

    Nice list of Joomla templates , Thanks for sharing here. Its very helpful for us. I also would like to share another way of making responsive Joomla templates , these mentioned themes are very nice but we also can make responsive Joomla templates using software such as TemplateToaster, Joomla Template Generator. It generates templates instantly.

  13. Adelina

    Yes, Evelyn I am agree with you TemplateToaster is the perfect solution for making themes from scratch.It holds many sophisticated features like Bootstrap integration, automatic code generation. I have used this software and it worked great for me

  14. N Khan

    All the ST templates are not Free AND Responsive. They are either FREE but not responsive, or Responsive but not FREE. They should not appear in this list at all because they are not “Free responsive joomla! templates”. They don’t even show it on their site that the free ones are not responsive… only after going through the whole process of registering to download and then installing the template I found out that the template is not responsive unless I pay for the upgrade.

  15. Luis Rivera Almeyda

    Thanks, great template list. I installed some of them and works fine.

  16. A.K.S

    Thanks a lot.

  17. Catherine

    I like Magzine, Tyneo and Business themes from this amazing collection of WordPress photography themes. All themes are very nice and will give an amazing look to related websites . I also have design themes with the help of web designing software , template-toaster. It is a software that helps to design fully responsive themes and templates in a lesser time without any hassle.

  18. DixieP

    Some of the best, most reliable templates I’ve used over the years are from Joomlaplates (no, I’m not an employee). Their JA-OnePage is free and responsive and VERY customizable.

  19. JoomlaShine

    Hello Allie Kingsley, I’m Tam from JoomlaShine.

    First, I want to say “thank you so much” for your mentioning JoomlaShine templates at this list. But actually, as other users reported, the templates you mentioned here are not responsive in free editions :(

    We have another Joomla responsive template which is totally Free, named JSN Boot. JSN Boot rocked the Joomla community since the first day it released with more than 5000 downloads. It comes with many PRO features such as fully responsive, multiple color variations, special style for Christmas… I’m sure your visitors will enjoy it :D

    So I will appreciate it much if you can update this article with JSN Boot or add JSN Boot in another topic such as: “best free responsive templates for Joomla 3.x”.

I believe this free stuff will help you get huge traffic from Joomla users. To discuss this offer more, please contact me at .

  21. Jenifer

    This is a very good collection Joomla template. There are a few templates that really caught my eye. I’ve used other means of creating Joomla templates, web design software that can give you a good result, and it takes less much time in designing themes. It’s very easy to build themes and templates with web design software, TemplateToaster.

  22. Chiara

    Also “ST Vela – Wonderful One Page Joomla Template” is NOT FREE:
    why is it on this list?

  23. Annie

    Hi, thanks for sharing such a nice collection of Joomla templates. I really like your collect ion and will surely use some templates from this amazing collection. I also have designed Joomla templates using a designing software as per the recommendations of the other user who have mentioned the name of web designing software templatetoaster.

  24. Travis

    I really like all these free responsive Joomla templates. My favourite one is “Meet Gavern”. A responsive website is the need of the hour. The number of mobile users is exploding and the number of mobile users overtook fixed internet access in 2014.


    – I am curious to know do you have the collection of responsive WordPress or Magento templates?
    – Are these themes can be used for commercial use?

    You can check this article about different aspects of responsive design. I think you will like this article about RWD

  30. James Thomas

    I am not sure what is going on here. These are not free responsive templates, they all want money one way or another. This site is very misleading.

  31. MKrish

    Great collections of free joomla templates!! we also want to suggest another one –

    Thank you!

  32. Rik

    Most (or all) JSN templates lack features in the free versions that you pretty much always need/want for your site.
    Not so free as they say…

  33. Eric bass

    Hi admin

    Thanks for updating the Joomla templates. is there any best magneto or Joomla templates for eCommerce sites. If we buy Joomla template which is premium can we add or customize the theme as there is no option in my joomla script

  34. Michael

    Joomlashine installs multiple components and plugins on your website that cannot be eradicated via the core Joomla uninstall, and there is no “uninstall” mode within the Joomlashine templates. Some of these are system core changes to the Joomla website, that cannot be eradicated without PHP programming. Therefore, the Joomlashine templates, with the inability to remove the plugins and some changed system core components, act like a virus. It is inexcusable that Joomlashine offers no alternatives to eradicate their template in its entirety including all its components from your Joomla website.

    • Previous Joomlashine customer

      THANK YOU! This is exactly what I faced with JoomlaShine. Read above for another comment of mine.

  35. Muhammad Raizaldi Yahya

    The above template complete with installation and setup guide? Thanks

  36. angielski

    JA Elastica is my favourite :)

  37. vijay

    This is really an awesome collection of Joomla templates. Thanks for sharing!

  38. Pawan Negi

    Really like your collection I am just confused which one I use.

  39. Craig

    thanks for listing so many free, responsive Joomla templates. I definitely found some I will try out. I also found that those by JSN appear to not be free. looks like they now require a subscription. Maybe I missed something and welcome guidance if I did. even if the list isn’t entirely current (9/24/2017) it is still a great resource. Thanks
