I am wondering what is the difference between a WordPress theme and a site template? I am attempting to build a more responsive and interactive site for my fans and some suggested WordPress so I got the hosting and installed Wordpress but when I looked around themeforest I saw some cool things in the site template tab. Whats the difference? Is one easier to set up? Thank you for any help.

Site Template is a static website template. You need basic HTML and CSS knowledge to add pages, content, modify existing pages… It does not work in WordPress.

A lot of Site Templates have a WordPress version as well, check the author’s portfolio.

I have no knowledge in that department. I put together a site using a template from BluDomain but I want a more interactive site. www.AlysiaMontano.com

Will a Wordpress theme be easier to make a site with?

Yes, a WordPress theme is much easier to work with then a Site Template.

If you never used WordPress before you’ll need a bit of time to get the hang of it (but it’s pretty simple), all you need to know about using WordPress is here.

Also, every WordPress theme comes with a documentation to help you out set up the website.
