Themes are what gives your website the look and feel

Customizing your Theme, taking your theme to the next step.

Menus help your users navigate throughout your website.

Widgets are siding items or header or footer items that allow people to see your website.

Pages are static items like About Us, Contact Us, Meet the Staff. These do not change much from week to week, but you do want to add to them and change them so the Google Spiders and the Bing Spiders see a change.

Posts are chronological items on your website. You can create categories and have them as menu items and develop an ongoing conversation with people that visit your site, we also suggest that you use MailPoet to encourage people to sign up for your onsite newsletter.
