Get your site ready before you begin This is the first step in the template creation process.

It’s a good idea to do this now.

If you’ve done the steps to prepare your site for a theme, it will be easier to create a custom template for that theme.


Select the type of template You want to use If you have a basic website, you can create a basic theme from scratch.

The template you choose will determine what type of WordPress plugin you need to use.

For more advanced themes, you might need to make your own plugins.


Choose your theme’s theme settings You’ll need to select your theme from the dropdown menu.

You can choose between a free, paid or premium theme.

Choose the one that’s right for you.


Fill out the template’s description If you want your template to have a specific title, a URL and more, enter the details in the description field.


Select a theme’s plugin If you are using a paid theme, the plugin will be downloaded automatically.

The default plugin is WordPress’ Theme Builder, but if you want more flexibility, you could try WooCommerce or WP-CLI.

The plugin can be used for all sorts of custom WordPress themes, too.


Set up the theme’s themes You’ll have to set up your theme in the themes’ preferences.

Here’s how to do it: Click the Add a theme button in the top right corner.

Select “Theme” from the list of available themes.

In the sidebar, scroll down and click the Add button next to “Default Theme”.

You’ll get a popup window with a list of themes available to you.

Select your theme and set it up.

Click the “Set up themes” button.

In this dialog box, you’ll be given two options: Choose which plugin to use for the theme.

If your theme is using WordPress’ theme builder, you need only select the one with which you’d like to use WordPress’ default theme.

You won’t have to worry about using another plugin.

You don’t need to worry if the plugin you choose is a paid plugin.

Click Next.

Next to the plugin name, type in the name of the plugin.

Your plugin will appear in the list.

Now click Next to continue.

Click next to the theme you want.

In your theme preferences, click the “Change theme settings” button to make it the default theme for your site.

Click “Save” when you’re done.


Select which plugins to use For the themes you want, you should only use one plugin per theme.

Click one of the plugins listed in the plugin list.

For example, if you’re using WooCommerce’s Theme Builder plugin, you may want to select WooCommerce Theme Builder.

If not, select WordPress’ Customizer plugin.

Select WooCommerce Plugin.

In order to use WooCommerce, you have to enter the following information in your WooCommerce Settings: Theme: The name of your theme.

Plugin: The plugin that will be used by WooCommerce.

Theme URL: The URL of the theme that you want WooCommerce to use as the default.

Plugin Name: Your WordPress name.


Choose a plugin for your theme You’ll be prompted to choose a plugin that you’re going to use to create the theme for the site.

If a plugin doesn’t exist yet, you don’t have it installed yet.

Choose one of your options.

Choose WooCommerce for your Theme Builder theme. 7
