Description Of WordPress Themes – Their Structure, Ways And Hints How To Use Them

Themes have great influence to your visitors. If you want to ravish your visitors, attract forthcoming subscribers to your blog, furthermore, you want to persuade them to return again and again, you have to make good impression at the first sight.

What is a WordPress Theme?

A WordPress Theme is not more and not less than a well-designed, pre-built template with – or without – pictures and visible, or invisible tables, headline(s), widgets which can boost or weaken the force of your main topic. So, its role can be very important.

What are the main features of WordPress Themes?

WordPress Dashboard - Sidebar, Example - Description Of WordPress ThemesTheir important features  – concisely – are as follows (see the sample screenshot on the right):

  • Number of Widgets*
  • The opportunity of creating Menus
  • Theme Options (if any)
  • Header (if any)
  • Background
  • Editor

If you install a new Theme, or you want simply to customize your existing one, these are the most important things you have to be familiar with. Let’s see them in details:

*Widgets: they are usually serving the following functions (provided by WordPress as default):
– Archives

– Meta (Site Admin, Log In, Entries RSS, Comments RSS, WordPress.org)
– Pages

How can you change the appearance of your site to its advantage just by changing its theme?

There are thousands of WordPress Themes available online and you can learn you how to download, unzip and activate them easily. Some are without any charge, some are with charge.

Other WordPress compatible Premium Themes:

You can find so-called premium Themes as well. They were designed to be eligible to fulfill special requirements, i.e. Landing Page, Squeeze Page, Introductory Page. They differ in Appearance, number of the Widgets, Options, Custom Menus, aso.
I’ll show you some of them only to examine the difference:

1. Elegant, well customized Niche Themes:

Tulips2-WordPress Theme To Make Blog  You can find 10 different Themes in this collection.

The widgets are similar to the WordPress default ones. It means, that if you are familiar with using the basic Themes, you will not face with any additional issues.

You might say: it is all right! But, how much does it cost? I can’t tell you an averige price, because it is depending on the quality, the functionality, and the purpose of the Theme.  But imagine: if you decided to design such a Theme, how much would it cost to you? Don’t forget about the working hours, the experiments, the struggle, the tests…
Unless you are a super fast in-24-hours-dealing-with-only-this-topic tech-savvy, it would cost more than a price of one or more Themes, I suppose. The average price is depending on the Theme and its function itself, but usually from $5 to $100 per piece.
I know this fact from my previous experience. I have re-designed several Themes in order to be appropriate for my purposes, and it lasted a lot of time!


2. Product Specific Premium Niche Themes:

These Themes are specific ones, because they belong generally to a product or service and they were developed in order to fulfill these unique requirements. I’ll mention some of them, but if you want to use this kind of theme you have to be prepared that you will be able to get if if you buy i.e. a plugin with it. Or vice versa.

Why do I want to introduce these Themes? Because I consider this knowledge to be useful and I would like you to know about this side of the Market as well. After this if you meet some of them you will know immediately what it is all about.

Gazette Theme:
