Design in WordPress

Design in WordPress

The design in WordPress is influenced by Theme (template) you choose and possibly the plugins you add. You can also adjust the theme with programming. The latter is not recommended if you do not know enough about coding.

Theme

There are a lot of themes in WordPress. So much so that if you start searching without having an idea of ​​how you want your website to show you get lost in the themes. There are both free and paid themes. There are also some themes that have a free and paid version. You can do more with the paid version. The prices of the themes vary greatly. If you have a small budget, a free theme is soon  good enough.

Find theme

Find a suitable theme by thinking about the following things in advance:

  • Colors in which you want your website (usually your house colors)
  • Menu where do you want your menu (top, left, right, bottom)
  • Do you want to use photos in your design and where and how
  • How many columns do you want
  • Do you want to use a certain font
  • Do you have a logo and have it on the website
  • Where does your logo appear on the website
  • Do you want a lot of fuss on your website or little?

And that is how I can come up with more questions, the more you think about how you want your website to be in advance, the easier it becomes to find a template that is suitable as the basis for your website. But remember with free template you can make small miracles, not big ones. Do you really want a customized website and do you have that budget (read large budget) then WordPress may not be suitable for you and you better take a programmer who customizes your website.

Tips on finding theme

Tips:

  • Choose a theme with support in the form of forum, faq and / or mail support, so you can ask questions if you get stuck in the theme.
  • Read the reviews of the theme, often you can see if the theme is usable.
  • Color is often adjustable so look through it.
  • There are a lot of free themes that use them.
