How to Choose a WordPress Theme
When building a new WordPress site, there are a few possible ways to go about developing it – you can build a theme from scratch, or base it on a WordPress framework – but my favorite way is to find a theme that has the majority of the functionality that you’re looking for and them customize from there. Spending extra time finding a theme that has many of the desired features can save many hours down the road on custom development and design.
Where to find good themes
There are many free themes available, and some of them are very good (and some are not) but paid themes generally offer the best features, documentation and crucially – support. Prices range from $30-$80 and many offer a fixed price for access to all themes that company has created. Here are some of our favorites.
