Once you’ve installed Wordpress to your web hosting server it’s time to customize it and make it your own. You do this by installing a Wordpress theme.
What is a Wordpress theme? Think of a theme as being like an outfit. What clothes you put on change your appearance in much the same way that a theme changes the default look of Wordpress. Themes are designs that alter how your blog looks and functions.
Wordpress themes are made up of several pieces:
Templates: This is the actual design that will give your domain a whole new look.
CSS: CSS files tell your template what fonts and colors to use, in addition to specifying other cosmetic specifics.
Images: Each theme will come with a folder of images that fit neatly into your design like a logo, header and footer.
Plugins: Many Wordpress themes come with plugins that add more functionality to your blog.
Wordpress themes are highly customizable and full of options that will help you to create a unique look for your domain.
Wordpress templates come in three varieties: free, paid and premium.
