    Hi Peewhy,

    I put in a search for free wordpress themes and got a lot of sites. However you see many of the same themes at different sites. I did find a site with a free wordpress theme that I really like and you can customize it easily. In fact there are 17 videos that take you from installation to a finished and nice looking site theme. Search for "flexibility theme for wordpress". It's the Flexibility 3 theme. Best of luck,

    Jerry

    This is a bit ironic that you asked what search phrase to get to and then named the search phrase, lol.

    Have you tried anything yet? It's seriously worrying that you can't think for yourself so much as to come up with a basic Google search term. :/

      I expected a flippant response from an individual who simply shoots from the hip without actually thinking about his response.

      I am searching for websites that run WP themes as they are my target. Not 'pink widgets', real estate, restaurants, Christmas trees or forum trolls.

      I imagined that someone else may have been down the same route and discovered an embedded phrase that Google has picked up as a Wordpress theme.

      Sorry that I have brought serious worries upon you and yes, I can think for myself and sincerely apologise for daring to seek inspiration from a forum that I have beem a member of since 2006.

      As you, oh wise one, feel it it such a 'basic Google search term', perhaps you could enlighten us lower species and share your wisdom?

        lol

        If I am reading you right, try 'powered by wordpress'. A lot of webmasters alter the css to remove it, but its a start.

          Funny enough that was the first I tried but Google is dominated by "how to remove 'powered by Google".

          I'm testing something on Wordpress themes, so need to find websites on WP, but it doesn't matter what the topic or theme is.

          It's actually much more difficult than I imagined, or I'm missing a trick!

        My apologies. Your original post seems to have confused me. You see, I read it as though you're going into Google looking for WordPress themes for your site.

        Perhaps you should reword it to something like, "What Google search terms could I use to find website that are running a WordPress theme" so as to avoid confusion.

        To answer your question, I don't know exactly. There's probably a Google dork you could use as the search term. However, if you do come across a site and don't know if it runs WordPress or not, just put '/wp-admin' at the end of the root address to see if it is.

        Once again, sorry for being so harsh haha. I honestly thought you were retarded but now know that this is a genuine question.

    Ah I understand now... I thought that was what you meant.

    Is this for inspiration for your projects?

    Do these sites need to be related to IM?

    I did a quick google search and it came back with some pretty cool sites that showcase many sites using wordpress. This is very broad and nothing to do with IM but non-the-less these sites use wordpress

    GOOGLE SEARCH

    Hope this helps

    Hey Peewhy,

    I searched for "lists of wordpress blogs" and the top site came up that was directory of WP blogs. I think that is what you are looking for, right?

    Try this;
    WordPress
    You can filter it with the tagss on the left.
    Also if you search for 'top sites that run on wordpress' or 'top wordpress based sites' you'll find some nice lists, I liked the below;
    User:Matt/Famous Blogs « WordPress Codex

    And for last, someone posted here yesterday a nice site that checks whether a site is run on WP and what theme it uses, so if you like some site you can make a quick check about it;

    Hope that helps.
