WordPress Theme is like a website template; the only difference is it is designed to be used with WordPress. Without making any changes in the code, by simply installing themes you can change the look and feel of any WordPress based website.
WordPress developers can create themes by changing the CSS and various WordPress files. But if you are not comfortable with coding you can still have an attractive, user-friendly and interactive website – all you need to do is look for a suitable WordPress theme for your website.
There are both free and paid themes; exclusive paid themes are also available – these themes are sold once to make sure all the buyers get unique themes and no two websites are found using the same theme.
In most of the theme galleries the items are organized in categories like – business, entertainment, finance, music, technology, travel etc. Single Column, Double Column and 3 Column themes are also available.
