WordPress Themes

If someone mentions WordPress themes you may not know what they are talking about. A WordPress theme id basically the look and feel of your website. Additionally themes are designed for specific niches. And furthermore, it represents your brand online. It’s the first thing people see when they access your website online.

Your Look and Feel

If you are looking for a theme, or specific look, for your business website, you have many choices. If you go online to a WordPress theme service such as Kadence theme or Elegant themes you will find many choices, in many categories. Additionally picking one you like for the look of your site is important.

Another option to look for themes is right in the WordPress set up. If you secure web hosting most, if not all, web hosts provide you with one click WordPress set up. When you install WordPress on your account you have the option of choosing a number of free themes provided by WordPress.org. In addition you will have this option when you sign into your domain’s account.

Install WordPress Yourself

To log into your domain’s WordPress backend simply type in the URL of your domain followed by forward slash (/wp-admin). For example…abc.com/wp-admin. You will need your login username and password to access your sites dashboard (backend). In your dashboard, once you have logged in, under “Appearance” choose “Themes”. In there you can browse themes. Additionally it might be just me but I haven’t had a whole lot of luck with free themes and in fact one of my sites became corrupted and I managed to retrieve only about half of the content.

Themes are developed in categories or niches. Some are generic and some are free. Most come with an annual fee attached. In my experience it is always best to purchase the theme so you get the full array of options that come with them. Furthermore a bonus is that the developer will take their name off of your website. If you try to do that yourself you will run into issues with the theme working properly.

Especially important is the support you get when you purchase a theme. If you run into issues with the theme, after all it is software, you have the support to have that issue resolved. This of course does include any issues you have with the company it’s hosted with.

Easy Theme Editing

The great thing about themes is that even though a theme may have been developed for a particular category, most themes can be tweaked so that it fits your brand of products and services you offer. Assuming that you will be using your own logos, images, etc.

I have done this many times. For example a construction company wanted a particular theme that was originally designed for recreation niche. We changed all of the slider images, added a new logo, headers etc., and made it fit their brand perfectly.

Kadence Themes Have It All

One theme I use on a regular basis is the Kadence theme. In addition it has the added feature of being able to download a set of starter templates. Additionally there are over sixty different niche category templates to choose from.

The Kadence Bundles are great for the website owner just stating out or for the seasoned pro looking for all the bells and whistles. In addition you get all the essentials you need to build impressive and dynamic WordPress websites.

There are different bundles to choose from with Kadence. The Kadence Essentials Bundles, Kadence Full Bundle, and the Lifetime Bundle. In addition they include a multitude of plugins.

Well worth looking into if you plan on building a site yourself or if you develop for others.
