Themes, themes, themes!
Now that we have been through all of the essential setup and content topics, it is time to turn our attention to themes.
With WordPress, themes are responsible for the layout and styling of your site. So this is where you really get to put your personal stamp on your site - you can make it look as different as you want, or you can choose to just install your chosen theme and leave it at that.
But how do you know what theme to choose? After all, there are almost 3,000 themes in the WordPress repository, over 4,600 WordPress themes on ThemeForest, and numerous other premium theme vendors to choose from.
Come along this month and we will make things a bit clearer for you.
