Picking a Theme
My favorite theme marketplace is Themeforest because they have the largest verity of high quality themes for mostly under $60, which is quite cheap.
Then all you have to do is create a user, deposit some money and browse around.
Installing a Theme
To install a theme in WordPress:
- Go to Appearance -> Themes.
- Press the ‘Add New‘ button on the top.
- Select ‘Upload‘.
- Choose the zip file you downloaded from Themeforest.
- Press ‘Install Now‘.
- Activate the theme.
That’s it. Simple isn’t it? Now go ahead and create an awesome portfolio website that’ll help you stand out.
