Choosing a WordPress Theme

Today I will be looking at choosing a theme.

As well as this I have to download the generic “WordPress” template to be able to use a theme.

I have downloaded WordPress to my hard drive and I will be following the instructions on the links my tutor had sent me:

The WordPress theme that I have chosen was “Stiking” as shown below.

I chose this theme for a number of reasons; firstly it was pleasing to look at and simple in structure, hover extremely customisable with being very user friendly.

The theme cost me $40.
