I love playing with different themes on this (and my other) websites. It can take up whole days if I’m not careful!
But what happens with the themes I decide not to use? Well, often they just end up sitting in the themes area of my dashboard. Which isn’t really the best idea as it means I struggle to remember the ones I’ve tried and didn’t like vs the ones I haven’t yet tried vs the ones that I might want to try again another time.
And then there’s the security issue – having unused themes is like having unused plugins lying around; a great way for unscrupulous people to get access to your website without your knowledge.
4 Simple Steps To Remove Themes
- Go to Appearance / Themes in your dashboard
- Hover over the theme you want to delete and select “Theme Details”
- In the bottom right click on “Delete”
- Select “Ok” to confirm you want to delete the theme.
And that’s it!
Repeat these steps for every theme you want to remove from your website.
