This tutorial will give you instructions on using your new WordPress (WP) template based on ccLabs blog theme. This tutorial is an article on how to use the blog theme only. Since WP is an opensource platform, there are training resources available to learn more about customizing your colors or utilizing 3rd party plugins to name a few. If you would like to learn more about WP, we included the link on how to use WP here.
