- Themes: are pre-created website formats that include all the styles and page templates needed to create a basic website. The text, headers, menus and sides bars are already into place along with colors to develop your basic site.
- Widgets: Are components that help you determine where certain info is displayed. For example, Widgets contribute to the styling of your websites, i.e. how many columns of content displayed on each page.
- Plugins: A feature that helps you add onto a theme. I.e. creating additional contact forms or social media buttons, security features and virtually any function you could want on a website.

Well the beauty of WordPress is it can be used in two ways, you can use it as someone who is familiar with coding or as someone who does not understand coding but can maneuver their way through various applications and how to guides. WordPress makes everything simple. As we discussed you have the option to select a pre-selected theme. Please note that there are additional costs to specific themes.
