WordPress Theme Recommendations

If you are in the early stages of building your WordPress site and you are shopping around for a theme, we recommend checking out the free themes available before committing to purchasing one. http://www.wordpress.org/themes/ 

We also recommend that you select a theme that provides a Full-Width Template. This way you can give our plugin and other content plenty of space to display. https://wordpress.org/themes/tags/full-width-template 

You can also search for themes in WordPress under Appearance > Themes > Add New
