  • ace maxs

    They’re good, but i’m looking for free one :D.

    • Madalin Tudose

      Free doesn`t mean always good. Keep in mind that free themes aren`t built with so much care and you don`t have too much features from where to choose from. Maybe a slider and a few shortcodes. Building a website on a wordpress theme is something big, because it`s a website after all, which will stay live for years from now on. So, you have to make sure the theme is perfectly coded, the design is stunning and built for the future and the theme doesn`t break on the next WordPress update. You might want to check out the freshest list: . Good luck with your choice! :)
