You can have a website developed for you and this can be done including a pre-designed WordPress Theme so the development cost will be reduced. WordPress is a CMS – Content Management System that is widely used and has a lot of options for it. Our option is to consider Premium WordPress Themes every time.
Upgrading a theme in WordPress CMS
WordPress is very flexible and can handle easy theme integration and swap over of themes, so if you want to start with something simple and then upgrade to a theme that is more feature rich, then it’s pretty easy. You don’t have to upgrade your whole CMS to just upgrade your look and feel, it’s as simple as downloading the new theme, and then clicking a mouse 4 times to see the new design. One thing you will have to do is configure the theme, and each one has a different amount of customisation that can be done to it.
Upgrading WordPress CMS
WordPress is also great when it comes to upgrades, you can upgrade your CMS without doing any design changes. So if you have a custom theme, then it’s a very easy task to keep up to date with your CMS. As WordPress is an Open Source Content Management System it is continuously upgraded, both for security and features. Keeping it up to date, it makes good practice to upgrade it whenever a new version is available. And as mentioned, your design and features aren’t effected as the way that WordPress is architected ensures that the CMS source is split away from the design.
Free WordPress Themes
There are a lot of Free WordPress Themes that are available to download. Most of these are basic in design and features and most of the time need to have the designers’ footer and link left in it for you to be able to use it for free.
You also need to be aware that some of these free themes cannot be upgraded or changed in any way, so you need to be considerate towards to this.
In most cases, if all you are after is a basic blog then a free WordPress Theme should be enough
Premium WordPress Themes
Premium WordPress Themes are a much better way to go when it comes to a new websites. Having a professionally designed and developed theme will make your life a lot easier when it comes to using and expanding the website.
Most premium WordPress themes have a configuration page that will turn some features on and off. So you don’t need a developer to add new functionality like turning on a rotating image banner or recent post in the sidebar, or even a promotional ticker, but all that depends on what your theme is capable.
Price of Premium WordPress Themes
Yes, WordPress Themes cost some money but they are a significant amount better than the free ones. The cost is normally minimal and in most cases it’s less than 100 dollars. You will be able to control a lot of the theme’s features and turn things on and off. In some cases you are also provided with multiple templates page types, so if you can have text content pages, photo pages, contact form and other specific page types.

Plugins are extensions to the CMS or additional functionality, so if you wanted to add in a gallery to your website, it’s easy, and in most cases it’s free too.
