Free WordPress themes are convenient because they do not require you to know how you want to organize your website or how to code, using HTML and PHP, to create the desired effect. If you’re new to blogging or WordPress specifically, one-click themes allow you to quickly create and publish your website without waiting. Because many themes are widget compatible, you can easily enable sidebar content from your dashboard.
Installing a theme simply requires you to upload the entire theme folder into your “themes” directory via FTP or browser-based file manager. If you search from themes from your WordPress dashboard, you can install them with a single click on the “Install” link below the theme preview.
The WordPress theme repository contains many basic and free themes for your use. The tag search is useful for finding themes that suit your needs. For instance, your website might feature photography so you would want a free theme that displays your work like a portfolio. However, many bloggers use the free WordPress themes and this can detract from the uniqueness or memorability of your blog. Third-party websites offer for free and many of these themes are less common than those in the official repository.
