Let’s say you downloaded a free WordPress theme or bought a premium one from Template MonsterThemeForest or another template shop. Next step is to customize the theme to your needs.

There are different ways to edit your theme. First and foremost you can edit CSS codes. But of course “if” you know how to do it. If you don’t know what you are doing, you can ruin the design and you will spend much time to make it beautiful again.

Another solution is to find some professional who can do everything for you. You can either hire some individual or you can use some service like Template Tuning. If you choose this option, you don’t need to think about anything and there won’t be a learning curve, but of course it may consume your budget. In addition, if you want to edit your design regularly, you need to pay again and again.

Then, this is the case,

  • You don’t know CSS so much.
  • You are in a hurry, searching for an easier way to edit your WordPress theme, “real quick”!
  • You have a small budget, you don’t want to spend a fortune on this task.
  • You want to have the chance to edit all over again without spending a dime.

Well, I’ve got a solution for you!
