WordPress has supported a Themes System since 2005.
The first default theme was called Kubrick.
Since then thousands of themes have been developed. Over 8,500 are available from wordpress.org/themes
There are many more. Some of them you can buy fairly cheaply. But there are also countless custom themes, developed by individuals and agencies, that provide the look and feel of millions of WordPress sites.
So which is my favourite?
Oh how I dream of that marvellous theme that does what it says on the tin When it arrives it'll give me the drive to consign all the rest to the bin
I’ve used bundled themes since year twenty ten and I have to admit, I did like some of them
Some of them good, others so so It really depends what you're trying to show
There's 8 thousand more in the repository so many to choose from and all of them free
But why do we say “No freebies for me, I'll buy premium themes with a year's licence fee"?
Well, most have a builder that makes it a breeze to construct your pages with consummate ease
But these fat bloated themes with a ton of jQuery make your site run real slow and your visitors weary
They look nice in demos and on the front page Yet we're made to wait for what seems like an age
But lo, there's good news just you wait and see for fast block based themes that are called F S E
The Site Editor UX is coming real soon A block based solution for you to consume
With templates and parts and patterns galore and dynamic queries and oh so much more
It’s coming with techno designed to get smiles No CSS needed when you've got Global Styles.
It isn't quite there yet but I am proud to say that I've tried Full Site Editing and it's going to stay
I started with Fizzie, then developed SB. My third was called "This Is..." and a child theme Wizzie
I've many more themes that I want to replace I just have to find the time and the space
So I think you'll agree, it's a pretty safe bet that my favourite theme...
Well, it's not written yet!
I now have my favourite, I think I am smitten. I didn't a while ago; But, right now, it's "Written".
