WORDPRESS THEMES – Jayson Cote & Tracy Malone
Have you ever spent hours looking at theme after theme, wondering which theme may be a better choice for your client or your own site? Have you wanted to change themes but are unsure of how it will affect your current site? Have you thought about a custom look for your website? If you have asked yourself any of these questions then you need to come to this meetup.
In this session, we will review:
• Some of the key components of themes and how to choose the best one to serve your needs.
• We will look at several places to purchase or download themes, and discuss the pros and cons of purchasing from different places.
• If we have time, we will touch upon how to make basic changes to colors, fonts, spacing, and other design elements after you have chosen a theme to work with.
Questions – “You ask…” What are you trying to achieve? Group will share their favorite solutions for your problem

Theme tip – In order to pick a good theme you need to qualify exactly what kind of content you are going to need for you or your client. Will they need different layouts for pages, sidebars different on every page, will they want more than one slideshow, what about shortcodes for columns and fonts, think about a themes functionality before you get sucked into just another pretty theme. Don’t forget responsive design!
