    Google for Yootheme and Rockettheme, I like their templates the best.
    But if you just search for Joomla Templates you will get plenty of free ones.

    You can find almost all ytheme and rockettheme on rapidshare though, if you look around for a bit.
    Good luck.

    for a good overview of all the template sites just checkout

    Code:
    bestofjoomla.com
    otherwise these are the places i would recommend:

    one thing to remember though all though a lot of the templates are good and great to look at they are often bloated, not well optimized and in some cases a bitch to customize

    also its not always straightforward to make your own site look exactly like the demo so lookout for quickstart or faststart installations they are always handy

    also be wary of ripped templates on warez site they sometimes have malicious backdoor scripts inserted into them too so once you install it someone can come along and get ftp acces to your site - not cool....

    plus, when using joomla always make sure your are using the latest version

    hope that helps

    I have Joomla running on a couple of production sites and everything is stable. I am happy no more and no less than if I had used WordPress or another CMS. They all have there strengths and weaknesses.
