    The simplicity of this is great. Plus responsive design and a list of recommended plugins for government-type websites. I have a website project for a local Economic Development Commission — I am going to move toward using this theme.

      Hi Scott,

      Keep me posted on your progress.

      We’re still working on the theme and hope to have a stable 1.0 in the near future.

      If you end up using the theme, would love to feature.

    Here, in Poland, governments/authorities are spending ridiculously high amounts of money on web development (and IT in general), like $25,000 for a simple personal website or blog, i doubt they would use anything that is free ;)

    Some Govs never get fresh no matter what

    In my country Veneuela governments/authorities spend high amounts of money in websites and they share the revenues of job with hired developers. Only the citizens loss money with that type of dirty deals.

    I will install it on my localhost, when it is available on WordPress.org. I won’t go excavate it from github.

    I’m a good subgenius CSS whittler/artist, plug-and-crash PHP coder, and can tease out the presentation & functionality relations of old & modern themes. If GovFresh are shooting for this level of user, then I’d say they have an achievable target in view.

    If it isn’t ready for the Themes repository, though, it’s not sufficiently ready.

    … [R]equire[s] some rebuilding of [the] code.

    While we’re still rebuilding code, is still pretty alpha, isn’t it?

    … But I am intrigued, especially if GovFresh actually has a realitic idea of the kind of clientele & environment they’re looking at, in typical local government contexts.

      Hi Ted,

      Getting it onto wordpress.org is the goal, and the theme is on their radar. Once it’s 1.0 and ‘official,’ they’ll most likely post something on the VIP blog. I’d say follow on GitHub or the VIP blog.

      Definitely a market. We’re getting inquiries already (especially globally) and expect to see decent adoption relatively quickly.

        Hi Luke,

        I got it from Github, unZipped it, and am leafing through the CSS. Later today I will move the unpacked Theme Directory over to my localhost and check out the visuals; peek into some of the PHP files. Break a few, temporarily. ;)

        I’m working in the woods lately, and can only participate intermittently. I keep a lot of themes on my work-site, and enjoy comparing different ways of doing things.

        Good luck to GovFresh!

    Nice blue color, but it is too ordinary for me. You can find similar themes in wordpress directory

    I took a bold step using wp Twenty Fourteen for my local township at http://www.hayestownshipmi.gov
    I waited last year for GovFresh so when I was approached, I decided to go with wp 14. It when live last month. What do you think.
