Changing Your WordPress Theme

This one is simple, folks. Want to talk about changing your WordPress Theme?

No, you don’t. Changing Your WordPress Theme is way harder than people think it will be, as our friend Bob Dunn pointed out a few days ago.

But changing your WordPress theme changing the way your web site looks is a fact of life. You’ll do it one day. Wouldn’t it be great if there was a comprehensive guide you could use to walk through the steps of changing your WordPress theme?

There is. Pop over to WPExplorer, and take a look at what you’re up against. In just five steps (and a whole bunch of sub-steps plus way too many decision points to content with) WPExplorer lays out a terrific road map for changing a WordPress theme that will give you at least a fighting chance to get it right the first time.

It is complete or comprehensive? Of course not. For example, this passage on dealing with widgets could have included a few words telling you to copy Widget content for re-purposing later:

It’s a good idea to look over the widget options, ad spots, footer columns and the sidebar width in addition to any other widget ready areas. This way there are no surprises later

Nevertheless, it’s a start. A great start.
