@kaufman_jack Great idea and well-executed ! I was wondering how your WP theme compares to, lately featured on product hunt as well ? At the first sight, your theme seems more minimalist and straightforward. How come your price is much higher (49$ vs 149$) ?

@benjaminboukris Great question! You're right that my theme is a bit more minimalist and straightforward. But, I want to stress that I think the guys behind Chipmunk have done a great job with it! Finally, there are three different tiers of pricing, but I'm thinking of lowering the price based on your feedback and the feedback of other people as well. Please let me know if I can answer any more of your questions!

@benjaminboukris after a quick review, i still prefer chipmunk theme - just waiting for user submissions to include images and a voting mechanism of some kind (or simple instructions to include a voting plugin and incorporate into navigation within categories)

@janwennesland Thanks and of course :)

@passingnotes @benjaminboukris Thank you David! I'm working on adding the images to the user submission form at the moment. It should be ready with the next release.

Stuart of Vacord@vacord · Founder,
I built on a CSS/HTML template and it's sort of a PITA to update. I have been wondering when someone would build a platform specifically for curated sites, and it makes sense to do it on Wordpress. Jack, does this let the site moderator easily add submissions from the web? For example, on my site, people can suggest a tool for a category.
Jack KaufmanMaker@kaufman_jack · Entrepreneur
@vacord Thanks, Stuart! The theme does not let the moderator easily add submissions from the web yet. But, that is on my product roadmap and I plan to add it soon!

These kind of collections are great for marketing purpose. And since they have become so popular, this theme come in handy. @kaufman_jack can you tell us why you built it? Also, do you use it yourself for some collections?

@gregoiregilbert Thanks for sharing! I built Curated Theme because when I went to build the first version of Revenue Numbers I had to cobble together a WordPress theme and HTML to make the site look kind of good. I knew there had to be a better way to build a curated directory, so I decided to make this WordPress theme to make the process easier. I've built Revenue Numbers ( and Startup Fundraising ( using the theme. The theme makes the process of building a curated directory easier by allowing the users of it to: - Easily add an unlimited number of category pages to your curated directory website. - Easily add an unlimited number of resources to each category in your curated directory website. - Add images or no images for each resource in your curated directory. - Describe your curated directory's purpose and the purpose of each category page for the directory. - Create fully responsive curated directory websites that look great on any desktop or mobile device. - Update the color of each category link and page in your curated directory. - Customize the footer of your curated directory. - Delete categories and resources from your curated directory at any time. Please let me know if you have any questions about Curated Theme and thanks for checking it out!
