Updating Your WordPress Theme In Time For Warcraft Cataclysm
The web is full of sites promoting or talking about Warcraft, but many look and feel quite dated and in need of an overhaul.
Perhaps like many people looking forward to the Cataclysm expansion, you are often looking through the web for sites updated with the latest news. Only to find that the sites you find look very dated and have graphics that pre-date The Burning Crusade.
Of course content is king, but if the look and feel of a site seems out of place, then many people will assume the worst and “bounce” straight back out again without so much as a glance at your content.
That’s not something you want.
Like visiting a distant relative or changing your tyres, updating your web page to look and feel new and fresh is not something many look forward to. But just like those things, it is something you really should do now and again.
Technically it can seem a little daunting. Changing the theme and look of a site might mean tinkering under the hood at all the HTML and CSS. But it really shouldn’t have to. There is really nothing that technical about changing your WordPress theme, or even starting a new blog from scratch for that matter.
There are perhaps three thousand sites on the web at the moment that could do with an update. Guild site, information, support, or just general Warcraft chit-chat. So installing WordPress from a host that offers a one click solution – then installing a theme which probably takes no more than seven clicks really is a piece of cake.
Why WordPress? Well search engines love it. It’s rock solid stable, and even a complete first timer can have a pleasing looking, and very functional site up in a matter of minutes. It’s hard to find any downside.
If the web-host offers one click installation, and the theme provider gives you a good “over the shoulder” tutorial on how to install one in less than sixty seconds – then there really is nothing to lose. No tech skills required.
So if you have a well run site promoting or discussing Warcraft, get yourself up to date. It’s vital to have lots of information, but if it isn’t displayed in a way that looks modern and reflective of the way the game is played now, then many visitors to your site will never spend enough time there to find out just how good you are.
Search the internet for WordPress themes, preferably ones that come with video tutorials. Soon you’ll be bang up to date.
