Choosing and changing A Wordpress Theme
Hi and welcome to another edition to Shawn's Tutorials.
In today's tutorial I want to talk about WordPress themes.
- How to choose one
- how to change one
- free vs paid
- responsive themes
Lets start with what you should be looking for in a theme.
The first thing I look for in a theme is a clean uncluttered look that breathes. People like simple when they are serious about looking for something and if your theme is all cluttered up with ads or gadgets or has a bunch of flash on it or it is in any way work to navigate or figure out you have lost the visitor.
Simple is the way to go.
Next thing I look for is if the theme is responsive. With all of today's gadgets for viewing websites, from phones to tablets and such you need a responsive theme to be able to have your site show up in all the different viewers.
<HINT> It is easy to test your theme to find out if it is responsive.
To test your theme simply reduce your browser window and grab a side of it and shrink it down.
When you shrink it down the theme should shrink with the window and you can then scroll the who site in the shrunken mode.
