When it comes to WordPress themes, there are lot of choices available in the market. You get both free themes as well as premium themes. Most of the time, you will be confused to pick the right theme.

From my experience, what I have seen is, most of the free themes won’t help you much. Especially, free themes are not carefully coded and you will end up with issues especially in the long run. I am not saying, all the premium themes are carefully coded, anyway you must go for the best one. Also, you cannot say a theme is best just by seeing the design. You need to see the real users review, the problems faced by them and how they were all getting support from the theme developer, all these factors you have to consider.

That’s why I love to use themeforest where you can explore everything about the WordPress theme before you make a purchase. You get to know what the real “purchased” users are telling about the theme. How the issues are addressed by the theme developer? How many number of Sales? Ratings etc. All these factores helps you to make the best choice for your next theme.

  • Recently, I was looking to buy a magazine theme (+mobile friendly one) for my gadget blog. I did lot of research and finally, I went for Newsmag Theme.
