WordPress is a free and open source blogging tool and a content management system (CMS) based on PHP and MySQL. It enables you to build Websites and powerful on-line applications and requires almost no technical skills or knowledge to manage. Many aspects, including its ease of use and extensibility, have made WordPress the most popular Web site software available.

Creating a website with WordPress is significantly much easier than coding it by yourself. if you are a beginner, even working with WordPress may be difficult to you. That's why, in this section we will provide some useful links and also will explain how to get oriented in the documentation and what pattern to follow when building your website with our theme. Please note that this documentation covers all the main settings for the theme, but it doesn't cover instructions about working with WordPress, as this is a very extensive topic. If you are new to WordPress, we would recommend to first get familiar with the WordPress system, so you can have at least basic knowledge about how it works and then proceed with setting the theme.
