Adjusting Settings

Adjusting your settings to your post and pages will help you adjust the minor things. However, it is not the funnest part of your posts. But it can help you with how the site will look when its finished. Settings are going to determinate where your text goes and titles and the page layout design. That is it for this Wednesday, I know it was shot so I’m sorry. Thank You.

Changing Your Theme

Changing your theme is a very helpful tool when creating a website. Themes help your site look more professional and easier to manage. Your theme will tell you where your text will go, images, and titles. This will make your site look more organised and it will also help you finish your post faster. Themes are easy to change and you will not loose any of your information either.

Some themes have “theme options” which allows you to change colors, image placement, and title placement  as well. The “theme option” is just there to help you design your posts and pages the way that you would like it to look.

If your looking for free themes, go to WordPress theme section to see all the free themes that are available for you.

Some of my favorite themes are:

  1. New Gamer
  2. SKT Full Width
  3. Philips

I like these themes because they stand out, they get to the point, and I feel that the reader will be able to navigate and find what they are looking for fast and easy. Which I hope you decide to think of when your picking out your them. The theme needs to be accessible and easy to navigate, because if your viewers can’t find what they want they will leave your site.

I hope that you have learned something about themes here, and i also hope you have a great week. Thank you if you read all the way down to here.
