how to change the theme in wordpressIn this post we will show you how to change the theme in WordPress, and which themes we think are good choices and why.

The first thing you need to do of course, is log into WordPress.  When you log-in you need to look for the Appearance tab and click it.  Next you will click the Themes tab.  Then click the big Install Themes tab at the top of the page.  Now you have a lot of options.  You can click some options you are looking for, then click Find Themes, or you can leave them blank and just click Find Themes and you will see all 52 pages of themes.When you find one you like you can click the preview button to get an idea of what it will look like.  This is just an idea and you will not get the full look of it until you install it then click preview.  So when you see one you like just click the install button and the theme will be added to your available themes and will not be live until you click the activate button, so you can install a few you like, preview them and activate the one that looks the best.

To activate the theme you like you just click the big Manage Themes button at the top of the page, then locate the theme and click the activate button.  After activating a theme, sometimes you have to clear your cookies and refresh the screen to see the new theme.  Don't feel bad if you have to do that step, because I have to clear my cookies and refresh after every change I make to my site.  Below we have added some pictures to help in locating the tabs we listed above.

Here is a list of themes we think are good choices, because they offer a lot of options.
