    I'm brand new to WordPress, but have been using blogger for just over a year. Yesterday I managed to add 2 new domain names I purcahsed from Go Daddy to my HostGator account and installed wordpress through their Quick Install. I'm now in the process of trying to find a theme I like for my site. I found one that I really like called the Aparatus WordPress Theme. I've found it on a ton of different sites available for free download, but I have no idea where it originated from. My worry is if I download this theme, how do I get help if I need it, and what about any eventual upgrades? I've also been looking at another free theme, but it's offered by one company that has a help forum, and full list of updates if I need them. Not sure what to do about this? Can anyone offer any advice for a newbie?

    Generally speaking, it is inadvisable to download themes from any site that you do not know or trust. It's quite common for many so-called "theme sites" to offer free downloads of themes that then turn out to be full of spam links or, even worse, that contain downright malicious code. There are reputable themes sites - such as http://wordpress.org/extend/themes/ obviously but do proceed with caution.
