How to change theme in WordPress

Themes form the base of any WordPress website – they are the design templates used to build website pages from.

You can change theme easily through the WordPress admin dashboard, so you’ll need to login to that first of all.

You can usually access the WordPress dashboard by adding /wp-admin to the end of your website URL.

Once logged in to the WordPress dashboard, find Appearance menu, and click Themes.
