Not sure what to look for when picking a WordPress website theme?
We at Digital Fuse are WordPress experts and offer affordable web and graphic design services in Eastbourne and East Sussex area. Today, we’ll be touching on one of the often-overlooked areas of choosing a suitable WordPress theme and how to avoid common pitfalls.
There are countless people who are taking on the responsibility of building their websites themselves. Much like someone teaching themselves a bit of DIY to save money on redecorating the home. We are big advocates for this and actively encourage our clients to learn everything they can about creating and populating their own websites. This can have the benefit of keeping costs down, however there are a few things you need to check into thoroughly first.
To avoid any mishaps we advise that you undertake some research into your chosen theme. Considering the features you feel are most important and ensure the theme will allow you to integrate these easily. Having to pay for additional add-ons and install plugin after plugin is a big red flag and should be avoided as much as possible. The increasing number of plugins significantly increases the chances of code / script conflicts and can create an unstable environment for your website. This instability could result in vulnerabilities which can be exploited / hacked – or bring your website down without warning if a certain error code is triggered.
