What Are WordPress Themes?

Submitted by on July 8, 2011 – 5:05 pmNo Comment

WordPress Themes are the set of templates that give your website their look and feel.

To change the look of your website, all you have to do is change the Theme. Click Appearance in your dashboard’s left navigation panel to reveal the drop down menu, then click on Themes.

WordPress Appearance - Themes navigation panel

In the main Dashboard area a number of Themes will appear, including the one you are currently using. You can click Preview to see how your site will look with the new Theme. If you like it, you can click Activate your new Theme.

Choosing a WordPress Theme

You can also Delete a Theme, but we don’t recommend deleting any of the Themes that 321Launch.biz provides as some of them are Child Themes, which they are based on another theme. If you delete the Theme that the Child Theme is based on, you’ll delete the bulk of the Child Theme as well.

There are thousands of Themes available to access, some free and some for a fee. All of the 321Launch.biz Themes are free to use by 321Launch.biz clients. You can also download themes from WordPress.org by clicking the Install Themes tab and following the directions.

There are many companies that offer WordPress Themes for sale. Take care when purchasing a WordPress Theme – not all themes are regularly maintained and updated as WordPress is updated. Research the theme’s reliability before purchasing a WordPress Theme.
