How to Confirm Your Website WordPress Theme Is Compatible with Pinterest
Are you looking to build a profitable eCommerce store using the best free themes? There are hundreds of WordPress themes available for free download from the theme repositories. But which ones are compatible with the big social media platforms like Pinterest?
In this article, we will discuss some tips to help you easily find out whether or not your website theme is compatible with Pinterest. We will cover everything from basic debugging to advanced optimization so you can begin to build a successful eCommerce store immediately!
1. Inspect The HTML And CSS Version Of The Theme
The first step to finding out whether or not your website theme is compatible with Pinterest is to inspect the HTML and CSS versions. Go to the theme’s Github repository and download the latest version of the theme. Then, go to the theme’s website and click on the ‘Download’ button to download the theme’s source files.
Next, upload the theme’s source files to your local computer. You can use any FTP client like Filezilla to easily upload the downloaded files to your computer. Make sure to install the FTP client first before you can use it. After you’ve uploaded the files, open up your HTML editor and inspect the theme’s source code. You’ll notice that there isn’t any sensitive information like credit card numbers or other similar kind of data. This means that you don’t have to be concerned about hacker attacks in relation to this theme.
2. Try The Theme Out On A Small Scale
The second step to finding out whether or not your website theme is compatible with Pinterest is to try it out on a small scale. So, download the theme and install it on a WordPress-based eCommerce store that you’ve created. Then, login to your dashboard and hit the ‘Design’ button to open up the WordPress dashboard’s design tool.
Now, you can either choose to use the default theme that comes with WordPress or can choose to use a different theme. If you decide that you want to try out the theme that you just downloaded, then you’ll need to upload it to your WordPress dashboard’s ‘themes’ folder. After you’ve uploaded it, hit the ‘Install Theme’ button and install it. Once it’s installed, log out of your dashboard and then back in. You’ll now see that your website’s design has changed and that the new theme has been applied. Also, you’ll notice that there are a few options in the header of your website that now say ‘Pin It!’ These options will help your customers to easily pin your products to Pinterest.
3. Install A Test Environment On A Separate Computer
The third step to finding out whether or not your website theme is compatible with Pinterest is to install a test environment on a separate computer. This will help you identify any possible problems before they become a nightmare when applied to a live website. So, download the theme and install it on a separate computer. Then, log in to your WordPress dashboard and click on ‘Tools’ from the menu bar. From there, click on ‘Tools’ again to bring up the WordPress dashboard’s tools menu.
Now, go to the ‘Test’ section and run some tests on the theme. There are three options here: speed, compatibility, and SEO. You can choose to run the tests for any of these three categories or choose to run them all.
Go through the different categories and choose what you’d like to test. For example, you may want to test the theme’s speed on a desktop computer connected to a WiFi network. Or, you may want to test the theme’s compatibility on different email clients or different browsers.
Once you’ve chosen your test environment, click on ‘Start Testing’ to begin the process. If everything’s working properly, then a message will say ‘All Tests Passed!’ Below this message, you’ll see a table with the results of all the tests that you ran. If you see any red (for example, an error or warning) in the summary of the test results, then this means there’s something wrong with your theme. However, if everything’s green (for example, no errors were found), then this means your theme is fully compatible with the test environment.
4. Disable ANY Unnecessary Plugins
The fourth step to finding out whether or not your website theme is compatible with Pinterest is to disable any unnecessary plugins. Unneeded plugins can sometimes cause more problems than they’re worth. So, if you’re not using them on your website, then it’s best to remove them. Disable any plugins that you know you don’t need. If you’re not sure whether or not a plugin is necessary, then you can ask the plugin’s author for help. They’ll usually have a FAQ section where you can find the answers to all your questions.
Now, it’s important to note that not all plugins are created equal. Some plugins can really mess up your website’s performance. For this reason, it’s important to try out different plugins and identify those that enhance your website’s performance while disabling those that don’t.
5. Use Google’s Keyword Planner Tool To Find The Perfect Keywords
The fifth step to finding out whether or not your website theme is compatible with Pinterest is to use Google’s keyword planner tool. This tool is very helpful when trying to find the perfect keywords for online searches. Simply enter your website’s URL and the tool will return a list of keywords that you can use in your content.
The keywords returned by the tool will also appear in bold text in the search results of Google when someone searches for these keywords. So, if you want to rank for these keywords, then you should definitely be including them in your content.
6. Set Up Good SEO
The sixth step to finding out whether or not your website theme is compatible with Pinterest is to set up good SEO. Search engines like Google prioritize websites that are physically located near one another. This is called ‘geographic proximity’ and it helps to improve your website’s search engine ranking. So, if you don’t want to miss out on potential customers, then you should try and set up your website so that it appears near the top of the search engine results when someone searches for your products.
To do this, you’ll want to install Google Analytics and create an account. Once you’ve created the account, you’ll be able to find the site’s URL in your dashboard. Then, use the URL to create an SEO-focused website that appears near the top of the search engine results when someone searches for your product or service.
So, how did you do on our test? Did you find any errors or warnings in the theme’s HTML and CSS files? Anything that you couldn’t work around?
