  • 2. DEFINITION:WordPress defines a theme as “a collection of files that work together to producea graphical interface with an underlying, unifying design for a blog.” These filesprovide the color, font, and other elements the look and feel of your website aswell as some functionality. WordPress themes are provided by individuals as wellas companies. Depending on the theme that is chosen, some are free and othershave fees associated with them.FREE THEMES:There are many options available for free themes and for a simple blog it makessense to go for free. The most obvious benefit of this option is the cost. One ofthe drawbacks to using a free WordPress theme is that there is no support fromthe authors if there is an error. Another issue is that the free themes do not havethe functionality of a premium theme. There are ways to customize free themes,but they would have to be done by someone who has some experience. The freethemes may also prove to be more difficult to make changes to down the road andyou may not get free updates either.PREMIUM THEMES:Although it is tempting to automatically go for the free themes because it seemslike such a great deal, it is important to consider what will be cost effective in thelong run as well.

  • 3. BENEFITS:The big benefit is the support that is offered with the premium themes. If an erroroccurs there will be people there to fix it and offer help. The creators of premiumthemes have an obligation to fix issues as they arise while the creators of freethemes do not have any obligation to fix issues or problems.Premium themes offer more functionality than the free themes. One of the areasthat this is a huge benefit is in search engine optimization. Many free themes donot offer the option to customize SEO which can have a huge impact on searchengine rankings and traffic to the website or blog.The decision on which theme to choose is dependent upon the use of WordPressand personal preference. In the end it is smart to do the research and find the righttheme before getting started. It would be a good idea to write down the goals of thesite or blog and then search to find a theme that will help to accomplish that list ofgoals.ALLACYN GRIFFIN-MAY is the creative writer for the Marketing Department at OveractDevTechnology Partners and has worked in the technology industry for the past few years creatingcontent for websites, blogs, press releases, white papers, and newsletters.WORDPRESS THEMES OVERACTDEV
