What is a WordPress Theme?
A WordPress theme is an entire design frame that indicates how your WordPress site appears to the visitors. In other words, it’s the collection of style sheets that gives your website a shape, look, and feel.
A theme consists of the layouts, colors, font styling, position and size of elements, animations, transitions, and other styling details. And, all these entities of the theme can be customized according to the need.
For WordPress, it’s the most popular Content Management System (CMS) available on the market. CMS refers to a type of software or tool which lets you create, manage, and publish content online, easily without coding.
In simple terms, we can define WordPress as a user-friendly website creation software. It allows you to easily start a blog, a business site, an online store, or any other type of site.
Getting back to the WordPress theme, it’s something like skin and skeleton of a WordPress-based website that defines how content appears to the viewers.
It controls almost every aspect of a site’s visual presentation. That includes colors, fonts, header and footer options, navigation menu styles, and styling of every page on your site.
