Posted by H9 Admin on 28 January 2015 01:27 PM
WordPress allows the use of custom themes for a blog so that you can make your website look fresh and original. There are a couple of ways you can get custom themes to use on your WordPress site:
Search for a Theme in WordPress
WordPress allows you to search for themes based on specific keywords and/or features. To begin searching from your WordPress Dashboard:
You can preview a theme by hovering over the theme and clicking Preview.
Search for a Theme on the Web
You can also find a theme for your WordPress website on the web at places like Theme Forest, Elegant Themes, WP Tiger and more. Just search 'WordPress theme' in your search engine of choice and explore away! Make sure to download your selected theme to your Desktop, once found.
Download and Install Your Theme
After choosing a theme through your preferred method, follow the instructions below to install the theme on your WordPress site.
Note: not all WordPress themes are compatible with the latest version of WordPress. Be sure the theme being installed is compatible with the version of WordPress installed. You can read the info related to your theme to determine this before installation.
To customize your chosen theme a bit, click Appearance from the left menu, then Themes. Then click Customize, which will take you to a page with a few theme options.
