    Hi BHW,

    Does anyone have any good places where I can use free WP themes for my blog network? I'm looking for simple themes on the back end, and normal looking front end. All the big theme sellers like elegant themes take hours to set up, and they look no better than free themes in some cases.

    Thanks for any help.

    I took the plunge and made my own child theme. I basically copied the 2013 theme folder and changed the layout and the colors. It has made setting up a new site pretty easy since it is what I want and it basically just says to google that its the generic 2013 theme.

    Thats a great idea. And you can be sure its safe. Do you use the same theme for all websites? I would prefer each one to look different on the face of them.

    Since it is only to set up a blog network the theme does not make a massive difference besides the fact they need
    to be as unique as possible. I would just use some of the standard free themes WordPress provides.

    It only takes a few minutes if you already have all your data such as images for the sliders, content for your blog, among others.

    What's the theme of your site anyway? Will it contain informative or news-based articles? There are news-based WP themes.

    There are many free themes that you can try ! Just the problem is that free themes are not updated if they are developed in old version of WP
