How to Choose a WordPress Theme - What I Do
If you are a Free Starter Member you will have access to only 12 themes. Kyle and Carson have handpicked 12 visually simple themes for you to get started with. If you are a Premium Member you will have access to all 2,798 free WordPress themes.
When you enter the Site Builder here on WA and go to select a theme, you will see something similar to what is shown in the image above. This is where you will begin your search for a WordPress theme you like.
Along the top of the theme listing it will show you how many free themes are available, how many themes you have saved in your Favorites List, and how many themes you have used. If you are first starting out, both the Favorites and Used numbers will be 0.
There is also a search box where you can easily find themes without having to scroll through all 2,500+ themes. This is great should you happen to know the name of a theme you have seen before and liked.
When doing my theme research I will often come across several themes that I may consider using, based on what the Demo and Details show. More about these two on the next page.
When I find one I like I click the heart icon to save it to my Favorites List. As seen in the image above of themes from my Used List, you will notice several themes with a gray heart. This represents themes I have saved to my Favorites List.
