WordPress Themes

WP users may install and switch among different themes. Themes allow users to change the look and functionality of a WordPress website without altering the core code or site content. Every WP website requires at least one theme to be present and every theme should be designed using WordPress standards with structured PHP, valid HTML (Hypertext Markup Language), and Cascading Style Sheets (CSS). Themes may be directly installed using the WordPress “Appearance” administration tool in the dashboard, or theme folders may be copied directly into the themes directory, for example via FTP.  The PHP, HTML and CSS found in themes can be directly modified to alter theme behavior, or a theme can be a “child” theme which inherits settings from another theme and selectively overrides features. WP themes are generally classified into two categories: free and premium. Many free themes are listed in the WordPress theme directory, and premium themes are available for purchase from marketplaces and individual WP developers. WP users may also create and develop their own custom themes. The free theme Underscores created by the WP developers has become a popular basis for new themes.
