Choosing a theme for your Wordpress website is not a task that should be taken lightly. It involves a bit of research and a lot of comparing. It's a daunting process that can easily become very frustrating without any guidance. This presentation will go over the finer details of selecting themes that are a good fit for your specific website. We'll touch on topics such as: what layouts are best for what type of websites; the multiple ways you can use a portfolio theme that you probably never thought of; which shortcodes can make your website building process easier; what are the benefits to theme builders, and more.

Our presenter will be Aiseneya W., a graphic and web designer who has been building websites using WordPress as a CMS for the past 6 years. Aiseneya is the owner of Working With WP, through which she teaches classes on the end-usage of WordPress, along with offering tutoring in WordPress to individuals during their website building process. During the day, Aiseneya works as an Email Designer and Developer for a travel media company.
