Free or premium WordPress themes?
There have been numerous discussions online whether to use a free theme or purchase a premium theme.
There is no right answer to this question.
There are so many free themes of high quality and a lot of them could easily be marketed as premium themes. But there are just as many bad free themes as well, full of malicious code and it comes to actually examine a free theme before using it.
If you choose to use a free theme I would recommend these plugins (Theme Authenticity Checker (TAC)) to scan all of your theme files for potentially malicious or unwanted code and test your theme (Theme Check) for all the latest WordPress standards and practices.
