Install WordPress themes
In WordPress there are thousands of professionally designed themes you can choose from and make your own dream site.
Most of WordPress themes are free to use and highly customizable.
Here’s How To Find a Theme You Like
1. Log into your WordPress dashboard
Type in: https://yourcompayname.com/wp-admin (replace “yourcompanyname” with your domain).
There are a lot of buttons, options, and functions here, which might look a bit complex, but trust us it isn’t. In the next few stages, we will show you how to get started with your theme.
Once you spend just a few minutes exploring the WordPress dashboard, you’ll understand how everything works and become completely fluent with this platform.
2. Getting Started With Free Themes
More elegant and professional themes you can find from ThemeForest.net where there’s a big library of themes to pick from at varying costs. NB! For some of the themes you have pay.
But before you do that, spend some time browsing the free themes. Many of them are very professional and well designed.
From above you can see that installing a new theme for your website is very easy.
You can search for specific keywords and/or use filters to find themes that suit your style. Finding the perfect theme can take a while, but it’s worth it.
WordPress themes mainly contain the following:
- - The complete design or style of your site
- - Font design
- - Color themes
- - Widget locations
- - Page layouts or page templates
- - Styles for blog posts and blog archives
- - Menu styles and structure
- - In most cases – Responsive design
Just to sum up responsive web design is an approach whereby a designer creates a web page that "responds to" or resizes itself depending on the type of device it is being seen through. That could be an oversized desktop computer monitor, a laptop or devices with small screens such as smartphones and tablets.
Nowadays more and more people are using mobile devices. A recent Pew study 77 % of Americans now own smartphones in 2018 which is up from just 35% in Pew Research Center’s first smartphone ownership survey carried out in 2011. Consider it!
3. Install your new theme
When you have found a theme you like, installing it is as straight forward as it can be, just simply click “Install” followed by "Activate".
NB! You can change themes as often as you want without having to worry about losing what you’ve created. Changing themes won’t delete your previous posts, pages and content.
