Free WordPress Theme

At HostGator, one of the most popular web sites created on our servers these days are blogs. People use blogs not just as a diary, but as a quick way to publish information and articles. The most popular blogging software is WordPress, which happens to be the platform of choice for Gator Crossing (this blog) and can be installed with a couple clicks directly from the HostGator Control Panel.

We had a custom HostGator inspired WordPress theme drawn up recently and would like to make it available for free to our customers and non-customers alike. Below you can view and download the theme made available in four different color schemes:

View Free Theme 1 View Free Theme 2
Download Theme Download Theme
View Free Theme 3 View Free Theme 4
Download Theme Download Theme

You can see our Gator Crossing blog viewed in the different themes by the theme switcher plugin on the upper right side of the blog. Enjoy!

    Best Free offer I impressed………………..

    My blog is hosted on Gator, and I have been looking for a theme. It would be more popular if it were Adsense ready though, as blog newbies are looking to monetize straight away.

    I am going to download one now anyway and see how it performs.

    it is a cool theme, however, I can not quite figure out the “get email subscription” link. When I click, nothing happens and I do not see any management means or code for adding emails.
    How is it supposed to work for subscribing for posts? I would appreciate any comments or suggestions.

    I’ve a problem with the theme’s.

    The h3 to h4 does not contain suficient space between the text, and I can’t find the CSS option to add it.

    Any idea?
