CHOOSE AND INSTALL THE ULTIMATE WORDPRESS THEME – STEP 7

The ultimate guide to starting a blog

Once you have purchased the website hosting, the domain, and installed WordPress, it’s time to customize your blog and choose the perfect theme!
A WordPress theme is a file that contains commands for designing the structure and the functionality of the site. That means that a WordPress theme will provide all of the front end stylings of your WordPress site.

How to choose a WordPress theme for your blog?

There are a few things that are very important to pay attention to when choosing a WordPress theme.

  • The theme must be responsive – responsive themes adjust their layout across different screen sizes and devices.
  • High-ranked by the users (read customer reviews).
  • You should choose a theme that has a high number of downloads (a few thousand at least).
  • Make sure that your WordPress theme supports all popular plugins, like Yoast.
  • Choose a theme that supports one of the most used Drag and Drop Page Builders.
  • There is good technical support (a downside of using a free WordPress theme – there is no guaranteed support).

What is a WordPress Child Theme?

A WordPress child theme is a WordPress theme that inherits its functionality from another WordPress theme, the parent theme.

When should you use it?

Child themes are often used when you want to customize or tweak an existing WordPress theme without losing these changes after upgrading the theme. If you know that you are not going to make any theme changes (like customized coding or customized design changes) then you don’t have to use it, but it’s recommended to use it in case you will.

Either way, you should know that it is very simple to upload the child theme (the exact way you upload the parent theme). You need to upload the child theme after you upload the parent theme and turn it on.
