Key Points:

  • Your WordPress site will have the default WordPress Year Theme.
  • Every year WordPress comes out with a yearly theme. For example “Twenty-sixteen”.
  • You want to pick a theme that best fits your website.
  • You must go under Appearances >> Themes >> Add New.
  • You can then filter through themes depending on your needs.
  • I recommend making sure your theme is Accessibility Ready.
  • Once you see a theme you like you can do a install and then a live preview. 
  • You can edit the theme in the Live Preview and apply it to your website. 
  • I recommend downloading the Remove Footer Credit plugin from WordPress and make a custom footer.
