  1. Brill Nick love the variations that are coming out now. Elegant Themes are the best value for the money no one can beat you lot at the moe. Love it

    • Yes! ET is best best. They have almost all types of themes!

    • Thanks Luke! We do our best to provide the best themes at the best price πŸ™‚

    • Totally agree.

  2. Wow. Looks incredible. Can’t wait to try it.

    • Thanks Lisa. We will finish it as soon as possible!

  3. Looks great as always, hope to see the live demo soon

    • Thanks Nile, we will do our best to not keep you waiting too long πŸ™‚

  4. This looks to be what I’ve been waiting for. Thanks, Nick. Once again, great work!

    • Thanks, that’s great to hear!

  5. Would love if this theme had options for Video and Audio template like the Notebook theme. This way I could always transition from Notebook if I like it without having to re-edit all my old posts.

    • We plan to add various post formats. Video will definitely be available, but I am not sure about Audio yet. We will do our best!

  6. Looks good! Would appreciate more “News” type themes though!!!!!!! πŸ™‚

    • Thanks for the suggestion Jonathan. You haven’t seen the last of our news themes, so stay tuned!

  7. upcoming….when?when? when? I’d like to try it! Looks really nice πŸ™‚

    • We hope to have the theme ready without a couple weeks.

  8. looks elegant

    • Thanks Ahmad!

  9. Where is wp theme for profesional blogger with great space ads πŸ™

    • We can only make one theme at a time, but I will certainly keep your suggestion in mind for future themes πŸ™‚

  10. Always the best.. congratulation to all of the team..

    • Thanks Dhiaqis, we appreciate the kinda words!

  11. I love the concept of this new theme πŸ™‚ Sometimes, I just want to be a story teller where stories are worth a whole life.

  12. Looks fabulous…..

    can’t wait….It has try to my next blog……

  13. Each time Elegant revisits an application, ecommerce, multimedia, business or personal, or now…blogging, you advance the art another step. Fable is exciting to anticipate, and will certainly be just as satisfying to use. Can’t wait for this one.

    • Thanks Dave, we try hard to improve with each new theme!

  14. ‘Fable’ look amazing with beautiful color style and typography. Nick your team done great job and provides best WordPress themes. Every time new subject and design look more better and better.

    • Thanks Dipak. We try harder with each new theme release to improve design and functionality.

  15. This is exactly what I need. Good work.

    • I’m glad to hear it!

    • Thanks Ashmita. I’m excited about this design and can’t wait to finish it.

  16. Nice one! Looks minimal and fresh design for blogging. Looking forward to the Fable live demo πŸ™‚

    • The homepage will be a feed of posts, each of which may have different content depending on the post format that is used.

  17. Thanks. I have several clients wanting to put up a personal blog and this will be perfect. Looking forward to it. You guys do a great job.

  18. Looking fabulous, Nick. I guess the ETA is in about three weeks?


    • 2-3 weeks is how long it usually takes for us to finish a theme after the sneak peek. I think that’s a good estimate this time around as well.

  19. I really like the look of this theme and can’t wait to download it. ET makes some of the most visually appealing and functional themes.


    • Thanks Mark, we try to give our designs the attention they deserve! Elegant Themes has always had a focus on clean, beautiful design πŸ™‚

  20. Looks great — as a wordsmith I welcome more of this kind of theme, and I’m already loving my current ET themes. You all make a great product.

    Now, what about a theme for promoting a self-published book? Or a theme for authors who are promoting multiple books, self-published or otherwise? Ideally, it would include a landing page where I could upload my book’s cover — feature it front and center with info for linking to online purchase — and also include pages for author bio, etc.

    (To get a sense of what is happening in the self-pub world you might check out what Joel Friedlander is doing with his book templates and somehow link up to market with him: He is doing a lot to promote beautiful book covers made by small graphic designers and he just launched his templates last month. Very exciting stuff with an emphasis on ease of use.)

    • Thanks for the suggestion Alison. We will certain keep this theme idea in mind for future releases.

    • That’s great to hear!

  21. Is this a one-pager? Are you including parallax scrolling? Looking forward to seeing the demo!

  22. My Authors have been looking for something new and different. I think this might be something they can evolve around.
    Thanks ET.

  23. I love all ET themes but as a photographer I would like to see another or an alternative portfolio system. One with a grid system but much more elegant and a nice lightbox effect. Hope you can develop this in the future.


    Great theme by the way!

    • Thanks for the suggestion Gille. We will certainly keep it in mind.

    • I second that Gille !

    • I’ll second that too. This is exactly what I’m looking for at the moment and I’ll have to buy 2 themeforest themes for that. Don’t get me wrong, GLEAM theme is great, I used it on one site – but it has limitations ans is a bit finicky, so the enhanced painter/photographer portfolio could be great addition too

  24. There is a magnificence in this new theme. It really deserves a slogan “Be ~ Love ~ Serve”. It’s always a delightful anticipation that your themes bring.
    As always – ET are on the top! πŸ™‚ thank you!

    • Thanks Timur!

  25. Cool~~~~!

    • I’m glad you like it πŸ™‚

  26. Fable seems of limited use for art like poetry is’n it ?

  27. Very nice, very pretty. Great design. I’m interested it!

    • Great Michael, I’m glad!

  28. Awesome theme, very nice, look good, great work. Thanks Nick!

  29. Awesome. IncrΓ­vel.

  30. Awsome looking this theme will be my next try in the blog factory.

    • I’m glad. I am sure that it will serve you well πŸ™‚

  31. Really Cool theme πŸ™‚ Clap Clap Clap

  32. As always Nick. a beautiful theme in the making.

    • Thanks Mark!

  33. cleAn and great theme as always

    • Thanks Sam πŸ™‚

  34. When will this theme be released? I’m about to change my blog and this one looks very interesting…

    Hope to hear soon from you!

    • It shouldn’t be too long, though we may need to delay until WP 3.6 in order to take advantage of the new post formats UI.

  35. Fresh design and clean. Hope you can develop this in the future.


    • We are working hard to finish the theme soon.

  36. Love this template! When is the release of this one?

    • Sometime this month, depending on how long the release of WP 3.6 takes.

  37. Wow this is awesome! simple but strong. that light typography just blew my mind! what is that font? wanna try this so bad!! ><

    • Thanks Nami. The font is called Open Sans.

      • Thanks! can’t wait to try that! πŸ˜€

  38. its a good job for design. I will offer to my friends

  39. Great Template! But still the question: When is it going to be available?

  40. The colour is powerful. I love this theme.

  41. for the individual user maybe but not for developers

  42. When are we going to see a demo version of this? It looks pretty sweet!

  43. Can’t wait for it. It looks so amazing!

  44. CanΒ΄t wait to see the new theme in action. Looks brilliant!

  45. i like this theme, simple and elegant as always πŸ™‚

  46. When you are releasing this theme?

  47. First I want to thank you for all of your incredible themes, Nick! I really like the look and feel of Fable and was wondering if you can predict if it will be released before the end of the month. Thanks again!

    • We are almost finished, however, because the theme is built with the new Post Formats UI coming in WP 3.6, we must wait until the new version of WordPress is release before we can release the theme.

      • Any idea when that will be? I’m excited for this one. I’m holding off on building my new site for it =)

  48. Looks great. And I want to say thanks for good support as well. I had my share of dealing with excellent looking themes without a proper support… unfortunately without support they loose 50% f their value. ET is different in that regard.


  49. I’ll through my 2 cents here – as much as I appreciate ET there is one thing missing for me in order to make it complete – a one-pager that would give me an option to create a dynamic page where all the content can be located without going to different pages. Something similar to this:

    or to this:

    But it’s just a whish list, I’m quite happy without having this as an option anyway.


  50. Beautyful Theme.
    IΒ΄m waiting for the WP 3.6 release and this theme πŸ™‚

  51. This theme will be perfect for our story oriented company blog! Thanks

  52. Looks like, the next theme for my website blog πŸ˜€ right now it runs on nimble!

  53. Seems great! I can see this being used as a shared baby diary by parents and in many other scenarios. It’s nice that the posts are readily readable in the front without opening them – if I understood it correctly. Are there any photo slider post types? It would be great to have a simple interaction system (e.g. liking the posts) without having to open the posts. This could be used as a one page bussiness theme if some posts and pages could be pinned to top!

  54. Can’t be long now until it’s ready. looking forward to this one.

  55. Nik,
    amazing as always, also the customer service is the best on the market

    I was at Photoshop World in Orlando last month, they mentioned your site many time, proud to have mine build by your 2 hands πŸ˜‰

    take care, Thierry

  56. I just read that post formats are being removed from 3.6 and will be made available in the form of an official plugin. This is being done to avoid further delay in the release.

    Just curious to know how will this affect the launch of this theme? I really look forward to using it on my personal blog.

  57. I *LOVE* this theme, and am SO disappointed to hear it’s being delayed. I am anxious to use it on my blog!!!

  58. We are launching a blog to inspire our customers with shared stories and advice and I think this theme might be a perfect fit. Thanks for a great theme.

  59. Hi There, I just check the themes here & I like them so much…. I think every internet user want to know about new themes and I am sure who read this blog should try these themes. Thanks!!

  60. A great theme, nice design, simple and very attractive. I as a designer loved the colors and font styles used. A very simple BUT attractive!
