WordPress Theme Selection Outline
- Use a default WordPress Theme
- The TwentySeventeen theme is a good looking theme.
- The TwentyEighteen is coming soon.
- Default themes from the WordPress development team have good support and an active comnunity of users.
- Plugin compatability is assured. All plugins must work on the current default wordpress theme; this removes the theme contention with plugin issues. Surely, there can still be conflicts between plugins and
need to be familiar with how to determine such conflicts using a process of elimination.
- Ensures that the latest WordPress features are being used. The default themes are designed to show off
wordpress enhancements, eg. Gutenberg.
- It just makes sense to start with a free theme that you know will not fall off the earth.
- There should be alot of user experience to draw from when you move to the latest defauld theme.
- Choose a theme that does not require proprietary software like a visual editor.
- Hooks you intop ongoing costs.
- Makes it difficult to convert away from.
- Gutenberg will make many of these editor obsolete.
- Genesis themes are built on a widget foundation. Skip them.
- Most themes provide some kind of help forum, but you may not get support from the designer.

- This ensures that updates to the Parent theme do not overwrite your changes.
- Use the child theme configurator plugin.
