  • WordPress Plugins, a repository of over 8,000 freely available plugins representing about as many volunteers. These plugins have received over 71,000,000 downloads we know about.
  • WordPress Themes, over 1,100 free GPL-licensed design and themes for WordPressthat have received over 11,000,000 downloads.
  • bbPress, open source forum software built on the same backbone as WordPress.
