Thank you for you time...
I am new to using WP and I do not know how to customized word press theme and so I got one from wordpress theme base. But I later noticed that there is an acne treatment link at the footer while my niche is reverse phone look up. Please where can I get a good customized word press theme for free without a link at the footer or is this impossible?

Thank you once again for helping me.

    I don't think it's possible. Or at least, I haven't seen any, and I'm not surprised.

    People might want to give away their work for free, but they would like to get something in return, when you don't pay them money for their work. After all - buying food, rent, electricity, knowledge ... nothing is free.

    So if you want a WordPress theme without a link at the footer, you'll probably have to create it yourself.

      You can edit out spam links from the footer through the backend of Wordpress or by using an html editor. The file is in the theme folder and is called footer.php. If the theme falls under GPL licensing, there is nothing to prevent you from customizing it and from removing spam links.

    I'm not quite sure what you mean, but a while ago, I made a video that shows how you can install a theme in WordPress:

      True, buying food, rent, electricity is not free. Hell, even knowledge for a degree in return. But knowledge on the internet, google, opensource software etc are completely stark free. Also, food, rent and electricity are not publicized as "FREE" before they are sold. And whenever it is given out, it is done so under the title "FREE SAMPLE". Therefore, these guys who do it to get unsuspecting users to land on their sites are violating the terms and the meaning of the word "Free".
      That being said, there are several ways to get to a totally free theme:
      1. If the theme is on wordpress.org repository, probably you can edit out the footer link. (This is the safest way)
      2. If you choose to use the free theme that forces you to leave the footer link, find out ways to remove the footer link. Because once you plugin your theme to a WordPress installation, it becomes the property of WordPress that is released under GNU General Public License. (If you don't believe this, open your WP installation and read the few lines below "Preamble" in the license.txt)
      3. Get a starter theme and build on it with ideas floating around the internet. (toolbox, _s, starker etc are completely free. You have to style the css entirely though! )

    "Free Customized" is an oxymoron.

    Many of the free themes hosted on WordPress.org do not have copyright restrictions preventing removal of the footer links.

    If you don't know how to remove the links you need to learn or pay someone to do it.

    ...Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just set there.
