WordPress has hundreds if not thousands of themes readily available to be installed directly from your WordPress Dashboard. You will need to login to your Dashboard.  Once you have logged in, select "Appearance" on the left menu and the "Themes" page will automatically load. Click on the "Install Themes" tab to find a new theme.

What different Themes are available?

On the Install Themes tab, there are a few different ways to find a new theme.  First, we recommend clicking on the "Featured" and "Newest" links as this will show you some of the most popular and up to date themes available.

If you click on the "Featured" link a page similar to this one will load that will allow you to look at different themes that WordPress is featuring:

How do I search for a Theme?

On the "Search" link (which is the default that will load when you first select the "Install Themes" tab) you will be able to search for themes using terms or by selecting the features you want the theme to have:

findtheme2

How you search depends on what is important to you.  Do you need a dark color?  Two columns?  Columns that have Flexible Widths (meaning you can easily change the width of your website)?  You can try different combinations of searches to find the theme that is just right for you.  Sometimes with the search option in WordPress it is hard to find the exact theme you are looking for, so if it does not find the theme you had in mind you can also scroll through the themes available in the "Featured" and "Newest" links we mentioned above. We will discuss installing the theme from your Dashboard in the next section once you find the theme that you want to install.
