There has been an explosion in the number of WordPress themes being developed in the past few years. The sheer volume of offerings can make theme selection an overwhelming challenge. Making an informed choice is the first step towards a wise choice.

Anne will present a brief history of her path through the theme labyrinth, then describe her current approach in choosing a WordPress theme. It is rarely based on aesthetics. She focuses on features, functionality, and Gutenberg-compatibility.

We’ll have plenty of time for discussion and sharing:

• Would Anne’s method works for you?
• Share other ways of selecting themes.
• What frameworks are available?
• Should you consider managed hosting?
• Compile a list of best practices.
