How to Customize WordPress Theme

Hello guys! Welcome back to another section of my tutorial on WordPress. In this tutorial post, i will be sharing with you guys how to Customize Themes in WordPress.

Customizing theme helps you to give your site a brand new look. Here you are able to change the background images/colors, titles and do much more.

Following below are the simple steps on how to Customize themes -

Step 1 - Click on Appearance → Customize.

Step 2 - The following screen will be displayed.

As can be seen, on the left hand side we have the customizing section, and on the left side we have the theme you have chosen. Any changes you make on the left hand side will be displayed on the right hand side of the page. Here are few options you must know -

Active theme - In this section, you can change the current theme just by clicking on Change.

When you click on Change you will get a list of themes, click on any of the themes, then click on Save & Continue to save your theme.

Site Title & Tagline - In this section, you can add the site title and tagline you want to add to your website.

Add your title name in the Site Title section. Add your tagline in the Tagline box.

Colors - You can change your header text color using this section. As you scroll through all the colors, you find changes happening at the right side of the page. You can as well add your own color  into the box that is found in between the Current color and Default.

Header Image - You can add a header image by selecting from the suggestions or you can add an image of your own choice by clicking on the Add new image.

Widgets - Add widgets to your site from here.

When you click on the arrow mark by the right hand side, the following image appears.

Here, there are two options -

First is the Main Widget Area, when you click on this you get another list of  widgets that are to be displayed on the footer area.

When you click on any of the widgets, you will see another drop down displayed where you can edit more or add more. For example, if you want to add categories then the following image will appear.

In this image, as you can see, you can add your categories in the Title section. Check any of the required boxes. If you do not want to add any of them, then click on Remove. Same goes for the other widgets too.

Secondary Widget - Here you must click on Add a widget and you will get a side bar with the list of different widgets. Click on any of them and it will be added to your list of widgets.

If you want to add more widgets, then click on Add a widget again and you can add more of the widgets based on your requirements.

Static Fronts - Select either latest posts or static front page for your site.

Alright guys! This is where we are rounding up for this tutorial. In my next tutorial post, we will be learning about Widget Management.
