If you are new to WordPress and WordPress themes, you might have a lot of questions such as how does WordPress work? What are WordPress themes? How to use them? And many other questions like these. As you will see, all these questions are closely connected. But our focus is going to be on WordPress themes and what are the qualities that make them immensely useful for designing classy websites.
Before we discuss this, let’s get a quick introduction to WordPress.
A Quick Look At WordPress:
Some of you (especially the ones that are hearing about WordPress for the very first time) might not know what WordPress is. WordPress is basically a content management system (CMS). It is an open-source CMS that facilitates creating and managing a WordPress website with ease and comfort. You will need a domain name and website hosting to get your website running. WordPress comes with great functionality and yet it is very user friendly when you install it. This is possible because the core of WordPress is developed by keeping the basics and user-friendliness in mind.
What are WordPress Themes?
Have you ever stumbled upon a few amazing WordPress powered websites that looked unique and simply out of the box? I am sure you did. And after seeing that, you might have decided to go for this CMS. WordPress themes come in handy as they give you the tools and options for making your website distinct and well suited to your business type. But what exactly are WordPress themes?
Technically speaking, a WordPress theme is a collection of templates and files that are capable of providing different functionalities, when combined together. They can provide a distinct look to your website. Besides this, there is a lot more on the list of things that WordPress themes can do. With WP themes, you can establish a solid online presence and make your website shine. Being an expert developer is not at all needed for using themes as they allow you to create and customize your website without writing a single line of code. You have the freedom to decide the exact style of the content blocks and sections, add or remove the icons, change the typography, colors, and more. Considering the above things, a theme is not just a collection of files. It is the deciding factor in how the audience is going to perceive your website.
Free And Premium WP Themes
You will find two kinds of WP themes - free and premium (there are customized WordPress themes as well but they do fall under the premium category).
Free WordPress themes are available free of cost for use. There are a lot of free themes available but here we mean only those which are available in the WordPress.org theme directory. The free themes available here have to go through a strict quality control process before they get listed. Downloading free themes from anywhere else might be risky as they may have malicious codes.
Premium WordPress themes offer many exclusive features and functionalities. Hence, you have to pay a certain amount for these themes to avail the benefits. Premium themes can be purchased from any trusted and reputed WordPress theme provider. These themes are loaded with features such as cross-browser compatibility, translatable, and more. They are regularly updated and are designed to work in harmony with plugins and addons. A premium theme always brings you more features that you will ever find in a free theme. The premium themes that we have are made with precision and have a lot to offer.
Here is how our themes are going to be useful for your website projects:
Designers have always paid attention to the overall design so that your website looks catchy. They have always emphasized styling the theme in a manner that will seem suitable to the kind of business or profession you are in. Tremendous efforts are taken to include every element, adding the design aesthetics and other details that are tailored to meet the purpose of your website.
2.Provide Drag and Drop Page Builder
Forget about designing your WordPress Website from scratch as our WordPress themes come with a page builder that uses the drag and drop technique. It makes page building a breeze as you can design your pages with zero coding skills. This is done to ease the experience of creating web pages. Apart from this, you get demo content and pre-designed templates that you can customize or use as it is.
Our themes have well-organized typography for defining the headings and other text content available. Everything is so well built that it complements the overall style of your WP theme. The font choices are excellent and are a perfect match to the kind of layout they are putten on. You will find many other themes in the market that have exquisite layout design. However, if you go on looking at their font style, you will see that it is not complementing the overall design or the font style chosen for the theme is somewhat difficult to read. This is not the case with the theme that you find here. The fonts are so well chosen and adjusted that you will never feel the need to temper with them or change them. You do not have to take any extra effort.
4.Plenty Of Widgets
You may call widgets a kind of add-ons that are made for facilitating your website with more features. Addons are valuable to any WordPress website as they are capable of providing diverse functionality that may be basic such as posts or search bar or may be more advanced such as the one that helps you show the Instagram pictures on your website. Some good WordPress themes have plenty of widgets especially the premium ones. Our premium themes come with a lot of widgets and widgetized areas in the layout such as in the footer.
Over the past decade, people have massively started using mobile devices of different sizes for accessing the internet and consequently the websites also. As a result, a responsive design has become a necessity rather than just being a choice. That is why more stress is given to making responsive themes for WordPress. These themes make your website look perfect as it itself adjusts to the screen of your device
6.Splendid CSS Animations
Animations add visual appeal to your website. Keeping this in mind, a premium theme is developed with different animation effects that include hover effects, background animations, loading effects, and more. There may be parallax effects included and other transition effects. All these effects and features help to make your website stand out from the crowd.
7.Other Additional Functionalities
Depending upon the niche to which a theme belongs, developers include a few additional features and shortcodes for adding that particular feature to your site. For example, if you are marketing something and want to build your clientele, you would require contact forms and a newsletter. In such themes, the developer already includes an email subscription form. And if not, there are pre-built shortcodes made available in the theme itself for adding any respective content element or functionality. This reduces the necessity of plugins and helps you get the desired feature for your business website.
