I apologize if this is a very basic question, but I am very new to working with Wordpress.
I'm looking into using Wordpress as a CMS for a new site I'm building but I'm not sure I understand some of the best practices for themes. I've heard that a good approach is to use pre-existing themes and modify them to your own purposes using a child theme.
Is this the direction in which I should look? Is there another approach that I should look in to?
Thanks for your help!
