Step 4 WordPress Theme

Step 4 WordPress Theme

Choosing the right WordPress theme for your blog is another important component, and can be a little overwhelming. There are thousands of themes available, some are FREE and some are paid (premium).

WordPress comes pre installed with its own Twenty Seventeen theme, an updated version of the previous 2016 theme. In step 4 WordPress theme, I will guide you on how to choose the right theme to fit your needs.

So many themes, how do I decide ?

With so much choice available, how do I choose the right theme for my blog. No theme is perfect! Some themes are a dream, well coded, plenty of customization features, options, light, fast and SEO friendly. Others are your worst nightmare.

Choosing the right theme

To avoid the headache of having to browse through hundreds of WordPress themes. I am going to recommend one for you.  GeneratePress, a FREE WordPress theme with the option to upgrade to GP premium.

Not all WordPress themes come with the customization options that GeneratePress offers. When you upgrade to GP premium you recieve twelve additional add-ons, that supercharge your theme to whole new level.

For a small investment, which is still less expensive than many other premium themes. You will receive a fully customizable theme with twelve add-ons (Colors, Typography, Sections, Menu Plus, Page Header, Blog Layout, Backgrounds, Spacing, Secondary Nav, Copyright, Disable Elements and Hooks).
