Tips to Ensure That Your WordPress Theme You Have Chosen Is the Best

by IDS Logic Pvt. Ltd. Software Outsourcing Company

For people who love blogging, WordPress is a favorite blogging platform and they must be aware of the themes that are available. It is an open source CMS and offers the users with multiple themes and plugins to choose from. Many people prefer it because of its relatively simple code and wonderful site architecture that WordPress development offers. But choosing from thousands of themes is not an easy task. The ads that define the themes may be a piece of exaggeration, so it is definitely important to check the exact criteria while making a choice.

Here in this article, we have decided to create a quick check list that will help you start and consider the things that should be on top priority.

Strive for Simple Design:

Design is the first and foremost thing that has to be considered while selecting a WordPress theme. Make sure that you choose something that is visually appealing, so that the visitors can easily find the site. Many themes offer a lot of complex menus and animations, which the users may find difficult to use. The purpose of the site is to help them find the right kind of information. If they struggle with the process, then they will leave the site for something that is easier. An ideal theme should have an easy and smooth navigation option having a clean interface and a friendly back end panel that both the administrator and the user can use.

Features Available:

Too many features or elements can significantly reduce the page loading time and also be the cause of visitor’s distractions. So while choosing your WordPress theme, try to consider the one that includes the standard functionality instead of extra plugins. Your theme should have all the essential features like the page builder, custom widgets, auto upgrade, custom contact form, slider and etc.

Responsiveness: 

With the increased use of mobile devices, most of your target audience will try to reach out to your site through some kind of mobile device. And this makes it crucial that your theme is responsive. You have to make sure that it is capable of adjusting the layout according to the size of the screen of the device and maintain a consistent look and feel throughout.

SEO Friendliness:

Your theme may appear to be very attractive to you, but it may not be that attractive to the search engines. Poorly coded HTML may affect the performance of your site on the search engines. In case you are not a technical person, it may be very difficult for you to analyze the source code. So make sure that your theme is labelled as SEO optimized.

Regular Support and Updates

A good support is the most important thing that users look for while purchasing a WordPress theme, but is very important to keep in mind that the pre and post-sales support are not the same thing. The theme that is updated at frequent intervals is often more secure as it remains compatible with the latest versions of the WordPress development. The support channel for the theme should be easily accessible and it should be offered via emails, support tickets, forums, chats and etc.

Summary:

Choosing a high quality WordPress theme that is easy to use and offers the standard features will surely help you attract your visitors. By adhering to the rules before purchasing your WP theme, your purchase process will become as smooth as possible.
