I've seen a lot of questions about themes.

Here is a video on how to find a free WordPress theme that you like. Install it or change the theme.

This video is compilation of several that I have done. You may find that the WordPress version changes through the video. There are subtle changes as to how things work in the various versions so try not to be overly critical.

Hope it helps people to understand how to find a good free WordPress Theme.

I have understand but I am getting confused as to why I would install more than to Themes, If I install one as shown in the video how do I know that my older theme as changed to my new theme?

Hey Cinderella,

You can easily (and should always) check your site to see if the new theme installed correctly by refreshing your browser and going to your loading page.

Hope this helps you.

You can view the active theme by going to Appearance>>Themes only one (usually shown in the top left position) will show active on the list.

Your site should also look different as the new theme will change the appearance of your site to match the new css embedded into the code by the new theme.

Great demo, thank you!

You kind of lost me at the end when you mentioned having more than one theme, in case a theme becomes corrupt. I am not following. I understand how to install, etc, but can you elaborate on that?

Thank you.

Sometimes a theme might not be updated or an update might not work as planned. Occasionally a plugin will conflict with the theme code. There are many ways that a theme might be corrupted.

In that case, it pays to have one of the Automatic themes installed so you can debug the issue. Change themes and see if the problem is resolved.

Hi there, I'm just about to start lesson 3.
If you are promoting over 10 products on an individual post or page, is it possible to have a theme with an internal cart system?
Rather than have the customer link to Amazon everytime a link is clicked, it would I believe look my professional and increase what can be sold in a cart system.
So before they move from your page to an external link, they have a few items that they may like to buy.
Woocommerce is beyond my capability at present so just wondering if there is a free theme that has this cart feature???
Thanks
P.

Most themes with carts will integrate WooCommerce for that feature.

Thanks Labman, woo commerce is way beyond my capability at the moment. I was just wondering if anyone was using a theme or plug-in that can appear to have an internal cart system that is not an e store?
