WordPress Appearance Themes
Accessing the Themes Screen in WordPress
The look, layout, style, formatting and functionality of your WordPress Website are all set and controlled by the Theme you utilize. Themes can be very simple and compact or can be very elaborate and intricate depending on how it was developed and designed.
Whether or not the website is responsive or fixed width is dependent on the Theme you select or developed. Responsive Themes are becoming more and more the norm and there are several frameworks that are utilized to accomplish this. Which one and what type of theme you decide to use is up to you but realize theme for theme they are all different so be sure to look them over closely.
Whether the the website is a single column, double column or triple column is also dependent on the Theme you select and can have an impact on how each of your web pages can be organized and presented.
The other thing that is dependent on the Theme you select is the number of Widget positions you have available to you to use on your pages and post. Widgets are very useful for placing helpful links, menus and other features through out your website with out having to place them on each page or post individually.
WordPress Themes can be obtained in a number of places on the internet. Some are free others are available at a small cost and vary greatly in how they have be developed and what features and functions they include.
If you are able to find a Theme that matches your desired look and feel that’s great however that is seldom the case. There is always some tweak or modification that needs to be done to make it look or work the way you want and that is were it gets challenging. I have tailored and customized dozens of Themes for clients and each time I am faced with different challenges to accomplish the request of the client.
Now that you have logged in to your WordPress site and reviewed the Themes Screen what do you do next?
