Free WordPress Themes! Good or bad? It has been a discussion for a while now if using free WordPress themes or not! It is well known that many free themes are not that good and can contain malicious code and links that makes it easy to open doors for hackers and other evil!
We not saying stop using free themes, only you have to little careful and make sure you download themes from reliable sources, but not even that is 100% bulletproof.
There are many WordPress themes providers with good reputation and we’ve put together a list with 5 of what I think are reliable sources when it comes to download free GPL licensed WordPress themes.
When download and using free WordPress themes we recommend that you always use some kind of check-the-theme-before-use protection and one great plugin to use is Theme Authenticity Checker (TAC) plugin. TAC will scan all your theme files for potentially malicious or unwanted code before you active the theme.
If something suspicious and fishy are found TAC will let you know and you can delete the theme.
We hope you enjoy our collection of reliable sources (there are many more) from where you safely can download free WordPress themes and use on your own WordPress blog.
