There are so many WordPress themes readily available however, choosing a theme that goes with your nature of work is important.

Monks take you through the 5 considerations to keep in mind while choosing a WordPress theme:

Functionality and Design
Besides visually pleasing, WordPress theme should possess intuitive functional navigation. Some themes available off the shelf are unique in terms of design, they are functionally adept as well however, they are quite difficult to implement. Designs that are not load optimized shed half of the visitors straight out. Choose a theme that loads easily and blends creative designs with value added functionalities.

Cross-Browser and Cross-Device Compatibility
A good WordPress theme should ideally support multiple viewing environments, devices and browsers. With the technological advancements, choosing a responsive theme that renders well on every smartphone might really work wonders. If not all, a theme that is compatible with most browsers and devices should be preferred. Theme’s documentation generally confers the compatibility.

Flexibility: Easy Customization
Many of the wordpress themes are naturally elegant, while some others needs to be customized as per your specific requirement. Choose a wordpress theme that is flexible and easy to customize. Flexible wordpress themes allow you to customize the layouts and colour schemes. You should be able to change the columns, change a colour background matching it with your company’s brand identity and do a lot more with flexible wordpress themes.

Widgets and Widgetized Areas
Some of the most popular good wordpress themes oblige you with special widgetized areas (usually sidebar and footer) along with custom widgets to select from. Some of the most sought widgets remain to be recent posts, archives, search, advertisement etc. Depending upon your niche, choose the best possible custom widget.

SEO friendliness
So, how to go about choosing a theme that is SEO friendly? Well, check out whether a theme provides you an option to edit the SEO elements like meta descriptions, page elements or headings, titles etc. Also, investigate further and check if the theme supports SEO plugins.

Additionally,  themes that provide social media integration, are easy to install and provide cost effective customization should be used in the top priority. Do not forget to evaluate the support, a theme extends after it’s been purchased.

  1. Hello! Thanks for your awesome and beneficial tutorial! It has
    made me more aware about which type of WordPress themes should I pick while developing
    a project. From the next time I will remember these things when I have to
    download a WordPress theme from any of my favorite websites such as

    themesmafia(.)net as well.
