WordPress Screencast, Part 1: Themes

In this video I’ll show what themes are and how to use them in WordPress (downloading, installing, activating and deleting). I’ll also show you how to preview themes before putting them live.

Themes are what WordPress uses to style the look and feel of the front page. Depending on what theme you use, options in the back end may vary because some themes provide additional functionality (much like plugins). In this course I’m using TwentyThirteen.

 

The full course is aimed at beginners and medium casuals alike. Whether you’ve been away from WordPress for a while, or if you’re a complete newbie, this is a very un-intimidating “getting started” guide.

I’ll release one episode every week on my iTunes Podcast Feed, or you can watch the full course on one convenient YouTube Playlist.

Enjoy!
