Hey folks! In this tutorial, I am going to walk you through the process of changing your website's "look" or "appearance". This is done by changing its WordPress theme.

Whether you're not satisfied with the current look, this video is going to give you the "know how" to change your website theme/design if you are ever in need.

Here’s What We Cover:

  1. Understanding Themes: Learn the basics of WordPress themes, also known as templates, and why they are crucial for your website's design.
  2. Accessing Themes: I'll guide you through logging into your website's back office and locating the 'Appearance' tab to view your themes.
  3. Previewing Themes: Discover how to get a live preview of different themes without applying them immediately, ensuring you pick the right look.
  4. Exploring Options: With over 6,100 theme designs available for Premium and Premium Plus+ members, I'll show you how to navigate and select from this vast repository of designs.
  5. Theme Customization: Learn how to install and activate new themes, and understand the implications on your website’s content and layout.
  6. Considerations for Change: Important tips on how to ensure your new theme aligns with your branding, like logo compatibility, and why early changes are more beneficial.

Changing your WordPress theme can significantly impact your site's appearance and user experience.

This video will walk you through these steps, ensuring a smooth transition (and helping you with some of the things to watch out for).

Hey Kyle,
I have been pulling my hair out trying to beautify my website using blocks. I can't get anything to line up properly or look the way I'd like. Do I need to purchase the premium WordPress modules to access more customization like drag and drop? Or specific training videos I can target to help me out?

Thanks Kyle

Go to the smart search up top (magnifying glass) and type in Wordpress wisdom and you’ll find a ton of short Wordpress tutorials showing a ton of stuff you can do with blocks. The teacher is not only awesome but he’s super handsome 😎👍🏼💯

Not at all; can you provide us with more details, please? And perhaps give us your website URL? Thank you.

Amazing, thank you Eric. I appreciate it.

www.gadgetguruconnect.com is the site I'm working on right now. I want to make my home page nice and neutral with lots of information, products, etc that catches the eye and keeps people engaged to explore more. Totally new to all this lol.

Sure man! And if you have any Wordpress related questions you wanna see a tutorial made for just let me know 👍🏼

It is better to focus on writing TONS of content when starting. When your website starts gaining traction and traffic, you may worry about beautifying, designing, or customizing it. Content takes the bulk of our sites and the longest to rank :)

Your visitors are looking to read content vs look at images and customizations.

But if you insist, you may check out Jay's live webinars

Thank you I appreciate it very much.

You're awesomely welcome, John!

Hi John,
Could you explain this to me?
Thank you

If we have been using website with the theme A and want to change it to theme B.
Can we keep using theme A and in the same time moving and take care of all the small details, which are so important, in theme if we don´t click active before we are ready?

Kyle,
What do you look for to determine a theme change? Do you change it just to have a different look?

Or are there advantages to certain themes?

I do understand that there are some themes that are more ecommerce friendly than others, but otherwise, I am not sure what to watch for.

There is a learning curve to a change, so yes, maybe I need to change.

Can you give some guidelines on the reason you would change a theme?

Hi Shelly,

Find a theme that you like the presentation of, that gives a good user experience both for you as a site builder and the audience that will use it.

Yes, there is a learning curve to a change, and one of the ways to do that is to test-run it in a siterubix domain.

Once you are familiar with it, you can install it on your own domain and go from there.

I've found that purchasing a premium plan for the theme I like often gives me more functionality in what I do with the site.

Enjoy the process.

Hope this helps

All the best

Hi Kyle! I am having problems setting up my website. I am able to access my backoffice wordpress platform on my website, and when I go to appearance I see that the theme I selected is active. But when I go to Visit Site from the wordpress platform it takes me to a login page which then requires me to start from zero creating a website. Please see attached page I am directed to when I click on Visit Site.
