It’s possible to get a free theme just by searching for the specific niche on Google, but it’s not advisable, at all. The prime reason behind this is that you need to be aware of the developer team behind a particular theme, as it will be injecting the set of codes into your clean WordPress installation.

So, you must be thinking, if that’s not safe, then what’s advisable?

Well, the best way to get a proper and totally safe theme is to look for it from specific theme providers. Either from a sole developer or a team, providing premium themes since years.

This is what you need to look, and once you are at their portfolio, you’ll have options to pick dozens of, depending on the specific niche.

Now, searching for a premium theme is an ideal situation these days. But, to make it even worth, you have to look for developers who are providing their theme with a framework behind.

A framework is kind of a control panel, offered in the Dashboard area, using which webmaster is allowed to bring all possible visual and functional changes. Cool, right?

Not every premium developer is offering a framework, but if they are, then you can understand how passionate they are for this work. And, you’ll have an extremely simple to use the tool, in your arsenal.

Which is the Best WordPress Framework?
