    How to add new Themes to your website 

    Let’s take a look at how to add new layout designs (Themes) to your website and how to activate them. You’ll love this feature about WordPress: your content stays the same while the look and feel of your site changes completely. Webdesign was never easier – from a creative mind’s point of view that is (it’s still a tough task to build good themes that you can use at the touch of a button though).

    Every Theme provides its own options in the back end, which is why I’m exploring some in more detail in my Theme Workshops section.

    There are countless free and Premium Themes out there – the dialogue I’m showing here pulls in free Themes from WordPress.org but you’ll soon find many others if you search for “wordpress themes” in your favourite search engine.

    Most of those will come as a .ZIP file which you can install on your site via Appearance – Themes – Install Themes – Upload.

    Have fun ๐Ÿ˜‰

    How to style your website with Twenty-Ten 

    In this workshop I will introduce you to the styling options of the Twenty-Ten default theme. This is a great starting point to get a feel for what you can do with your new site.

    Twenty-Ten is ideal because it allows you to use Custom Menus, a Custom Header and a Custom Background. Not ever theme allows you to change all these options as you will soon discover. Typographically it looks great too so I recommend you stick with it for a while.

    Enjoy Twenty-Ten responsibly ๐Ÿ˜‰
