How to pick the most suitable WordPress theme for your platform?

When designing a website on WordPress, the most important step is to choose the right theme. If you're having trouble deciding which theme to choose, there are several criteria that can help you. Here are some tips to guide you in your choice.

Look at the popularity of the theme as well as its level of safety

The theme’s popularity is one of the most important criteria of choice. In other words, a WordPress theme cannot be popular if no one uses it. To determine the quality of the theme, check its number of downloads. Then check the user reviews. It is important to take into account the opinions of all the people who use it. In addition, you can get an idea of the quality of the theme, thanks to the star rating system. Then take the time to read the comments and find out about the creator’s reputation. Also, the theme’s level of security is an essential point in your choice. 

Explore the theme's features, aesthetics and customisation possiblities

Some themes offer more features than others and it is up to you to choose the ones that suit you. It is highly recommended that you pay particular attention to these. However, you should avoid unnecessary features because they can slow down the speed of your website.The most important thing is to choose a theme that suits you and that you like. Thus, you must take into account its aesthetics. For example, if you want to create a restaurant website, you should not choose a theme around space. And thanks to the keyword search in the WordPress library, you will find what you want on your site. Ultimately, it’s about choosing a theme that you can shape to your image!

Learn about the author, support and accounting of the theme

Be aware that any coder can register his/her theme. To avoid any risk, you must check the author's accounting. As said before, it is important to determine the level of popularity of the creator and read the comments of the users. You can also check if the author takes the time to respond to the opinions of those who have concerns with the theme. Then, choose a theme with different support (a live chat, a forum...). Indeed, the support is a documentation that can guide the future owner of the theme. Lastly, before picking  a WordPress theme, make sure it is compatible with all browsers. To do this, you can view the theme's technical sheet.
