Websites are designed to present to the viewer in a controlled way. Headers, sidebars and footers all appear in defined places. Consistent fonts and colours will be used throughout. When the website based on WordPress, the “rules” for the appearance of the website are contained in the theme
The WordPress theme is a package of instructions that tell the browser how to display the website.
The WordPress theme is independedent of the website data, so by changing the theme, the look of the website can be completely changed.
Themes can down-loaded for free from the web, bought “off the shelf” or be created specifically for the website.
The biggest source for free Themes is WordPress’s own Theme Repository. At the time of writing, there are over 2000 freely available Themes for download. Any of these Themes can be used as part of our Small Business Website package. You will need to do the research and tell us which one.
There are other sources of free Themes on the web. Search for “free WordPress Themes” and follow the results.
