It’s too bad really, especially since shops like Obox has partnered with them in the past creating a set of themes even for them historically.
But they are going the extra mile by not only receiving those themes back that they developed but also releasing them for free – all 5 of them:
As original theme designers for the Posterous service we feel almost emotionally obligated to Posterous’ users who have been using the themes which we designed for years. For three years you have been creating memories through your own content and it was our designs which presented that content.
We don’t want to see those memories go away when Posterous finally hits the ‘off’ switch in April.
That’s why we’ve spoken with the team at Posterous and we’re proud to announce that we’ve ported the theme designs we created for them over to WordPress.
That couldn’t be more awesome. They are providing easy step-by-step tutorials for exporting user’s content as well and importing it into WordPress. They are doing this because they care and they are simply, well, awesome.
The 5 themes are as follows:
I’m particular fond of Choice:
Great work Obox team and way to give back. I love their heart behind it and their desire to serve their customers, even when other services fall off the planet.
