    I use a great free theme called Montezuma. You listed it here. Free themes for WordPress are customizable and all you need is some basic coding experience.

  7. Breergee says:

    I only use free wordpress themes, but one important thing to do is to delete all back links to the authors page. Just search the stylesheet for any .com and delete any that come up, being careful not to mess with the code too much. If you’re not good at css or html, search online for some guides.
