WordPress has been the best and most recommended Content Management System since it was released in 2003. I love WordPress, you love it and so does millions of people out there. Though it’s being loved too much, WordPress never asked “Why me?” 🙂 and it says I’m open source.
But that’s not why everyone loves it, it’s because of the ability to customize it with no knowledge of coding. The themes, plugins and widgets – they can change the entire design of your WordPress website with a few clicks. Let us now limit our discussion to WordPress themes.
So, there are both premium and free WordPress themes and most of the beginners prefer free themes. But the real problem I observed they undergo is – finding the best free themes. So, here’s the ultimate list of WordPress developers who offer free themes besides selling premium themes.
