How To Customize A WordPress Theme

How To Customize A WordPress Theme

 

WordPress provides you with a theme, which, once its installed, rarely looks like it did on the demo, leaving you frustrated

The reason for this is because, the theme you see on the demo, uses sample data, which once installed on your own site, will immediately look different

So How do You customize a WordPress theme, so it looks like the one you saw, or perhaps … even better.

It is very easy to do and doesn’t take to long.

There are two ways to do this.

The first way is to go to Appearance>>>>Customize as seen below

 

Click on Customize. This takes you to the following page

 

Now it is from this section here that at present you are able to customize your entire blog

Simply pick the section you want to adjust or to change and then you can do so. The pane to the right, where the photo is, shows how each change will look, when you adjust it, so you can tweak it slightly before you publish it.

The video below, shows a live demonstration of how this is done, using the theme for this blog, which is the Astra theme
