I successfully changed my Theme.

Last Update: December 01, 2016

Thanks to Kyle's tutorial I was able to change a theme on my business website.
When I began I chose "Searchlight" for my theme. It worked fine but I noticed there was no copywrite information at the bottom of the page. I had found a website that looked very similar to mine and I suspect it may have been copied.

When I tried to get help on the matter, I found that after a year you get no support from Searchlight without payment. Since I use "Colormag" by ThemeGrill on my guitar site, and it is free I wanted to change my business site to that theme also.

I was given a link to Kyle's tutorial and the process is very easy and you can have it set up before you activate and go back to your old theme if you do not like the result.

What seemed to be a big problem was easypeasy. Here is the link to Kyle's tutorial.

Hi Caroline,
I did not think I needed to until over a year on this website.
Loes also offers some good info on theme changes.
Thanks for your comment.

Hi Marty,
I would say I would need to. Still learning about how the website functions and the plugins. Will bookmark. Thanks again

The first time I looked there was a big gap above the page with a list of pages and posts. I sat on it for a day and then realized I had dealt with that before.
Today I checked it again and found a link that made it right and also set my menu as I had it on the old theme.

Thanks for sharing your tutorial, Loes My site is a year old and has widgets. I may still need to do some adjustments but I don't think they are major.

Hi Mike,
I had never felt the need to change themes but now I know it is not a problem. I had a mentor for a while that gave me "Colormag".

She did not add it to my business site. I am glad this is done.
