What Are WordPress Template Themes & The Major
A quick question for you?
Imagine watching a Ferrari super-car driving naked along the road without it’s stunning
bodywork and all of it’s shiny bells and whistles. Would the car still be appealing to you? The
answer is, NO!
Without it’s sassy body and beautiful components, the Ferrari sure would be one big ugly chunk
of metal on wheels. LOL.
So to put it bluntly, your WordPress blog‘s theme template is the “gorgeous body art-work” of
your website. And with no theme, your blog would be a “plain jane mundane” platform without
exciting visual appeal to your visitors!
