Things to note when you change themes in WordPress

There are a few things to keep in mind when selecting a theme for your WordPress site. First, you want to ensure the theme you select is suitable for your kind of site.

As an example, there are themes out there that are developed for a food blog or a travel website, if you pick one of those and use it for a technology website, it is not going to fit.

Instead, it’s best to choose one built for your site niche.

Secondly, whether you are choosing a free or premium theme, ensure it is made by people who write clean and secure code, otherwise, you may end up with several complication along the line.

One good way to select themes that have been vetted is to choose from WordPress themes repository.
