All the five free wordpress themes are easily configurable and have the following features :
1. Advertising Ready : The theme comes with two 125×125 banner spots on the sidebar. You just need to upload the banners to the theme “Images” folder and update the ads.php file. Adsense is integrated in the inside page in top section of the post area. Both these are ready in the theme, but you can choose not to use them now.
2. Easy Feedburner Integration : Comes with built-in support for Feedburner email subscription; just change the value “FEEDBURNERID” to your Feedburner ID in header.php (will be changed at two places)
The “Theme Options” section inside the WordPress control panel enables you to insert the Feedburner URL, which will be used all over the theme. No need to enable the Feedsmith plugin.
3. Widgets Ready : The themes supports widgets, so just drop the ones you use.
