There are many CMS available in the market the best CMS available among them is WordPress. WordPress being the most simplest and versatile CMS or content management system provides you a rich interface of the compilation of the websites that is required by you or your client. The unique selling point of WordPress being that it is an open source CMS which allows the developer and the designer to experiment with this great software to the fullest. It has a very basic structure that is easily understandable to a developer and designer for website designing and development services and the dashboard is as well as easy for the user who wants to use the website to work on.
As it is content management system the basic combination that develop an CMS are plugins and themes, designs are basically the designer part of a website that is seen in front of the user and the plugin is the functional part that is required by the client on his or her website. This article is dedicated to a theme that is available in the wp repository(in queue for approval) as a freeware, in easier words it can be said that the design can be downloaded and utilized for free. The name of the theme being talked about here is the Tora. It an be easily downloaded from the Theme.blue website. It is a very light one to download which is a maximum of 1700 kb loosely translated and requires around 1.23 MB of memory on your hard disk, which I would like to say that is the minimal amount that could be utilized by a template that is so rich in features and is also so flexible that it can be easily modified according to the requirement of the user.

If it feels to be a bit confusing after download the company has also build up a diverse documentation that deals with all the aspects of the themes modification and alteration that a developer or a client could require to change the output of the theme. Now, if we talk about the basic installation of the theme. When the theme has been successfully uploaded to the server and activated the theme ask to download a plugin that would enhance the editing of the theme called as Live composer, developed by Dany Duchaine and Slobodan Kustrimovic. The plugin has been developed initially to be a page maker plugin but can be utilized to form a full website, using the blank theme available with the package from header to footer.
