Is there such a thing as free Joomla templates?

    Unlike Drupal, I cannot find any Joomla templates on their website. Thus, I am forced to search for third party websites. I thought I was in luck when I found Them.Za, but it turns out that their free templates include links back to their site. The code for at least one link is hidden in a GIF file and modifying it breaks their ToS (clean versions are available for $$$).

    Can anyone suggest where I could find clean, free Joomla templates? Or is the only alternative black hat (ie editing the free templates and breaking ToS)?

    I have been adamant about avoiding WordPress, but I think I may just save myself the hassle and give in.

    Thanks.

    Just remove the copyright...

    I haven't seen a single Joomla template with copyright encoded as I saw on WordPress.

    You could always try d/ling a copy of Artisteer 3 from RS or HF.

    It's a great automated web design program which allows you to make custom made templates that you can then export for Joomla, Wordpress, Drupal etc.

    It's a doddle to use and well worth a look.
