23.3% of all websites worldwide are powered by WordPress. WordPress once was known as the best platform for hosting a blog. It is today an incredibly powerful Content Management System (CMS), employed for all sorts of websites.
WordPress has completely smashed competition thanks to its free and participative nature. You can run a fully working website for free in minutes. While WordPress used to be a thing for geeks, the project is evolving into being a fully usable commercial solution while preserving its open source nature.
While we’ve covered in the past why it is great and how to set it up, the aim today is to cover one of the most powerful asset WordPress counts on: themes.
Themes have traditionally been used as ‘skins’ you can load to WordPress to change the look and feel of your blog or website. Today they are incredibly powerful tools with custom made functionality and features.
