Getting the Right Theme for Your WordPress Site

Getting the theme right on your wordpress website is part of the task of setting up a new site, so it is important that you get it right!  The theme is the bare backbones of the site, which is built up of code.  This sets the layout, the design and the font/graphics which will be displayed on the site.

The main consideration when choosing a theme is not just in the looks, but how the site will function.  If you plan to sell items through your site, you will need a theme which is compatible with WooCommerce, or other ecommerce plugins.  The functionality is important to get the site working the way you want it to.  If you are hoping to make an information based site, you will need a theme which can adequately display your images and content in the best light.

Choose a lightweight or minimal theme where you can, as these tend to load quicker and make a difference to the load speed.
