What is a theme and why do we need it?
Themes allow users to adjust the look and functionality of a WordPress website, and can be installed without altering the website’s content or health.
Your choice of WordPress theme determines important aspects of your website. Choosing the right theme can be tricky for newcomers, since most people will be attracted by “looks” alone. A good theme, however, is one that not only looks good, but is also lean and lightweight, easy to customize, flexible, actively developed, well supported, and has good reviews, feedback and documentation.
How to install a wordpress theme
