Installing a WordPress theme is easy to do and can be done many times through the life of your blog. It is also fun to do and can be addicting. The best part about it is that many of the themes you can use are free so you can change the look of your site as often as you want to try and find that perfect look for your blog.


There are many places that you can go to download a theme for free. You can look for them usually in a few different formats. There are three major types of themes available to you to get your free blog looking like a professionally designed website or weblog. They can be found in basic themes, advanced themes, and widget-friendly themes.

Basic themes are the standard types of themes. They are the easiest to use and great for those new to web design. The templates are all very attractive and although you might be a bit limited as to what you can do. You will still find it easy to get it looking as sharp as you want.

Advanced themes are a bit more difficult to figure out for the new person but it is a great second step in learning about how to use website templates. Website design is made easy when you learn more about this type of theme. You have more options but it can be a bit complicated to figure them out.

The widget-friendly themes are ones that enable you to make use of the various WordPress widgets made available to you that can help your new knowledge of website design be taken to a new level. WordPress widgets are things that you can put into your weblogs sidebar to make your website more interactive for those visiting your blog. The great thing about them is that you don't really have to know much of anything about how they work. All you do is plug the thing in to your free blog and let it go. You will be surprised to find out how much more attractive your page can be once you learn how to install this into your WordPress theme.

After you have gone to one of the free WordPress theme sites and selected the one you want just follow the instructions on the page to download it. Once it is downloaded to your computer you can extract the theme and then upload the directory and all the other files to your wp-content/themes folder. Once you have uploaded it you can hit the presentations button to see a preview. On that preview, after you have seen that it looks just like you hoped it would, hit the image to activate.

Play around with the admin area. Once you have done this you will find more easy ways to customize your very own website and will learn how to build more complicated websites. It may seem difficult to build a web presence for yourself but once you learn how to install your WordPress theme you will find it a much easier endeavor.
