Do free themes have any hidden external links?
i saw in an article on internet saying they do have external link which takes traffic to other blog. Is that true?

Yes it is possible if you download the nulled or non-verified WordPress themes, Basically all the themes from WordPress.org are scanned and totally secured, so get one from there if possible 🙂

Great Complied list. Great Blog 🙂

Great List. I like to use Firstmag theme for my website. Is this free?

Yup, it is totally free

These really are some of the best WordPress themes. They look fresh and all of them have a different feel about them. I hate it when I see several themes that I fancy. It’s hard making the choice! I have found other WordPress Free themes

I want to test some of these WordPress themes for my site ( I’m on auto towing)

These themes are tested and works good. You are free to try any of it.
