We are dealing this time with the section of the administration panel where we will configure the look of our blog what our readers.
In this section is where we can change the template and add functions that improve navigation by our blog, and the first thing we find is the selection window of themes
Just doing click on the name of a template or on the image that represents will automatically change the whole aspect of our blog . In this window you will see all the themes that you have uploaded to your directory wp-content / themes if you have WordPress hosted, or those of the standard installation if you use the free service of WordPress.com.
A then we have the section of Widgets which is the system that uses WordPress to add features to our blog without having to know programming . By default you will see a few but if you can install more you will see more possibilities.
A very powerful function is the fact of being able to include in text widgets code HTML so if you know basic commands of this programming language you can expand your possibilities. If not, you can always take advantage of the predefined widgets, in which you can easily configure them with a mouse click . You just have to click on this button to open the options of each widget.
Just install WordPress you will find this empty section, with the indication that you can "drag and drop" the small boxes from the bottom to these samples of the sidebars to add utilities to the blog.
If you saw that you have a few widgets, especially the text ones, because they are so versatile, you can add up to 9 of each in the next section.
Once you have finished configuring your sidebars with the widgets that you want to include, you just have to click on the "Save changes" button to show the modifications in your blog.
We continue with the section with a window [1 9459009] only for connoisseurs of programming and is that in the tab of Editor of Themes you will be able to access the code of each one of the files that contains the template and manipulate them so that they remain personalized. With this function you avoid the need to access via FTP and use an external editor. From here you can touch up the necessary code and save the changes so they are instantly displayed on the blog.
And these are all the tabs that you you will always find Now, depending on the template chosen you can see more tabs. If the installed theme has customizable options you would find the corresponding tab, varying according to the theme.
And there are enough that, at least, allow you change the header image and text colors even the default WordPress template, and it will show you a screen like the one below.
And with this we already know the presentation panel of our blog. Its use is very simple but very powerful what it offers you. Without knowing anything about programming, you can greatly customize your blog, just using the mouse and some practice.
