How to make your own flash game portal: Part 5 – Adding your own theme.


Today I am going to show you where to look-up themes and things to pay attention to when picking one.

I will also show you where to look-up plug-ins and tell you about 3 essential plug-ins you should probably start with.

I will also show you the easiest method of uploading the theme and plug-ins into your site. [Warning! don't do it the long way, as in don't download a theme or plug-in directly to your computer, why bother]

So go here to choose a theme: <a href="http://wordpress.org/extend/themes/" target="_blank">Free WordPress Themes</a>. <em>I like to choose from the most popular</em>,<em> because you know there will be more support for it. </em><strong>Don't download it here.</strong> Instead either remember or write down your theme name.<!--more-->

Then go log-in to your admin page. And click on, Appearance &gt;&gt; "Add New Themes"<img class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-142" title="add new themes" src="http://mikeedla.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/08/Picture-6.png" alt="add new themes" width="164" height="151" />

Once inside, you can search for your theme there, and upload it directly, hastle free:

Now click on Activate, and there you have it, go check out your new site.
