If you have a WordPress website, you cannot go past WordPress for a top content management system. I have many other websites made using WordPress, as I build websites for a living, and it is by far the easiest content management system in every way. The best feature about WordPress is that it is so easy to upload a new theme template. It takes about 5 minutes to completely change the website design, which is amazing. One minute you could have a blue website with one column on the right, and the next minute you can have a red website with two columns on either side of the content. This is why so many people have turned to WordPress for their content management system.

Learning how to upload a WordPress theme will take you approximately 5 min. It is not a difficult thing to do.

What you need to upload a WordPress theme?

  1. You will need a zipped WordPress Theme template on your computer. You can download a Free WordPress Templates or you can Make your own website templates.
  2. You will need to have a WordPress website already.
  3. You need to be using the latest WordPress installation which is 3.1 or more.

How to Upload and install a new WordPress Theme?

  1. Sign into your dashboard where you edit your website and add posts.
  2. Click on Appearance in the left menu running down the side of the page. See the screenshot below.

    Howdy this is kind of of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
    I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding knowledge so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience.
    Any help would be enormously appreciated!

  12. Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. WordPress Seo Plugin

  13. Appreciating the persistence you put into your blog and in depth information you provide. It’s nice to come across a blog every once in a while that isn’t the same outdated rehashed material. Great read! I’ve saved your site and I’m including your RSS feeds to my Google account.
