Choosing a theme

Going to Appearance > Themes you can change the chosen theme. As a default, you will find a free, build-in theme created by WordPress developers themselves. If you want to change it to different, you can search for it in a theme library or upload a .zip file if you have a premium one (like Astratic).

Creating blog post or page

Creating blog post or page

Creating a new blog post or page looks very similar. You need to go to Post or Page > Add new. The editor view may differ depending on which editor you choose (or which was built into the theme). It can be a Classic editor, Visual editor, or Gutenberg editor. We highly recommend the last one. The Gutenberg editor is also the base in our Astratic theme so feel free to learn more about it.
