Themes

Themes (or templates) are “jackets” that your site uses to dress up its contents. They are the overall style of your website.

Click any picture to enlarge.

Your tagline can be a favourite saying or short inspirational message. If you look up at the address bar in your browser, you will see a small logo type image, this is the site icon.

themestatA static front page is the same every time someone arrives at your website, you can choose any of your pages to be the landing page when someone types your web address. You also have the option to use your posts page as your home page. In this case your latest posts will show rather than a specific page, creating change and movement. This is great for regular bloggers.
