A WordPress theme is a collection of files that determine the look and feel of a WordPress website. Themes control the design and layout of a WordPress site, including colors, fonts, and other visual elements.
To use a WordPress theme, you must first install it on your WordPress website. To do this, log in to your WordPress admin area and go to the “Appearance” menu. From there, you can click the Themes submenu and then click the Add New button to search for and install a new theme.
Once you have installed a theme, you can activate it by clicking the “Activate” button. This will apply the theme to your WordPress website and you can then customize the settings and options in the WordPress admin area. This varies by theme, so you’ll need to consult the theme’s documentation or support resources to learn how to use it.
It is important to note that WordPress comes with a default theme called “Twenty Twenty” (or “Twenty Twenty-One” for the latest version of WordPress). This theme is automatically installed when you set up WordPress for the first time and you can use it as is or customize it to your liking. Additionally, there are thousands of other free and premium WordPress themes available online that you can use to give your WordPress site a unique look.
