There is a good selection of WordPress music themes out there and deciding on one might be not as easy task as it might seen at first. Top templates have similar features and the task is to pick a template, which ticks most boxes. You might like the way galleries work on one template, but another template has a great music player with all you need. Once you know what you expect your website to do, what pages to have, you can research templates and decide on one.
While deciding on theme you want to use, it’s worth taking a couple of factors into consideration:
- DESIGN – Do you like the way it displays content?
- PLUGING INTEGRATION – How it integrates with custom plugins you might want?
- SELLER – Who’s selling it and how often is the template being updated? Has it good ratings?
- REQUIREMENTS – Is your hosting environment meeting template/plugins requirements?
