5. Understand WordPress Jargon
Without having a WordPress designer by your side, it can be difficult to tell what all that WordPress jargon means. I would still consult with a designer before choosing a theme, but here’s an explanation of the most common phrases I see:
This means your website will respond (format) for devices like smartphones and tablets.
See how this content only takes up about 2/3 of the page? The other 1/3 (on the right) is my sidebar area. Sidebars are usually populated with widgets but your pages don’t have to have a sidebar – they can almost always be full width.
Widgets add content to sidebars and even sections in your footer. They kind of look like “blocks” of content which can really be anything; Facebook Likebox, a photo with text, ads, etc. When choosing a WordPress theme it’s best to have a theme that is widget-ready.
A shortcode makes it easy to embed specific types of content to your WordPress site; Youtube videos, photo galleries, etc. Although these can usually be added regardless if your WordPress theme comes with them, the main pro to choosing a theme with lots of shortcodes is that it ensures everything looks consistent.
Think of WordPress plugins like the app market for Apple (or Android). Plugins are just add-ons that can be installed and used in your website. I always install what I think are the most important WordPress plugins available on plugin market.
Beware of themes that say they’re “SEO-friendly”. Just because they say they’re SEO-friendly doesn’t mean they actually are. Good SEO starts with clean coding and website architecture, and it’s nearly impossible to tell the difference if you’re not a WordPress designer. The 1 things you can do to ensure you’re theme is SEO-friendly is to chose a WordPress theme that runs on the Genesis Framework.
If you have portfolio, you may want to organize your work by filters (eg. graphic design, logo design, etc). Some themes also have filters for FAQs and other pages.
HTML5 is the new standard for HTML. Most WordPress themes support it but I would double check to make sure yours does.
Ever see a page on a website that says, “Sorry! That page doesn’t exist” or something similar? That’s what a 404 page.
Hope above guidelines will help you to buy the best WordPress Premium theme and make a beautiful website. 3ZBAU2BQY55H
