In a best case scenario, you just pull out your already prepared WordPress theme, loaded with all the features you like to use, and simply replace the existing style sheet with your own. But for the sake of this tutorial, we’re going to work with the good old default WordPress theme (Kubrick).Learn More

nopCommerce introduced native mobile support with the advent of version 2.4; with an ever-increasing percentage of mobile users, it’s a great way to optimize your customer base. nopCommerce ships with one mobile skin; however, if you’ve customized the theme for your site, you may wish to update the mobile theme to maintain consistent branding.

The folks at jQueryUI have created 24 “standard” UI themes, and also offer the awesome ThemeRoller online application that will allow you to create a custom theme using your own color selections.
