    The only thing that I hate about word press (and we use it a lot) is some of the templates. You do a budget site for a client and you see a nice template, then BANG the magic WP word appears “UPGRADE” It Should say, your site could look like this if you upgrade to the pro version or it will look like a wet weekend if you do not.
    Many Thanks

      Yeah, that can be a pain! When we list templates, we try to make sure that we’re finding the always-free versions, but if there is an option for a Pro version, we do recommend you pay that little extra more for peace of mind.
