New FREE WordPress theme

Gabfire, known for making some nice WordPress themes is offering a new theme for free.  The new theme is built on HTML5 and has lots of potential for a newspaper site.  A lot of nice built in features like an advertising module (with category ads), media gallery template and a custom media module which allows “you to display a FLV video hosted on your server or to embed a flash video to your posts.”

I haven’t tested this out myself but since the theme is free, you aren’t out anything for downloading it.  Plus, WordPress makes it very easy to switch between different themes, not to mention some really cool features which allow you to install plugins with out knowing a thing about FTP!  Anyway, you can check it out at GabFire’s website here: http://www.gabfirethemes.com/snapwire/
