How to make WordPress theme style sheet to define the theme

Hi,in this post I am going to teach you how to describe a WordPress theme using style.css file.

Now start to describe the theme for that

Step 1 .  create a style.css file inside your theme folder

Step 2 .  Now make a comment portion of CSS

Step 3.   Now write the code

/*
Theme Name: Twenty Fifteen
Theme URI: https://wordpress.org/themes/twentyfifteen/
Author: the WordPress team
Author URI: https://wordpress.org/
Description: Our 2015 default theme is clean, blog-focused, and designed for clarity. Twenty Fifteen's simple, straightforward typography is readable on a wide variety of screen sizes, and suitable for multiple languages. We designed it using a mobile-first approach, meaning your content takes center-stage, regardless of whether your visitors arrive by smartphone, tablet, laptop, or desktop computer.
Version: 1.6

  1. Now “Theme Name:” is describing the name of the theme but the “Theme Name:” is working as a keyword of style.css of WordPress theme.
  2. The “Theme URI” is describing the URL of the theme from where the theme can be upgraded or downloaded
  3. The “Author” describing about the name of the author of the  heme.
  4. The “Author URI” is denoting the URL or site of  he author
  5. The “Description” is for briefly describe the theme about.
  6. The “Version” is denoted to define the version of the theme.
  7. The “Tags” is defining the tags of the theme
  8. The “License” is descriptions of the license of use of the WordPress theme.
  9. The “License URI” is for define the link of the license.
  10. The “Text Domain” is used for define the domain text of the theme

Note here the “Theme Name:”, “Author”,  “Version” etc  is used as a keyword please do not change the keyword of before : (colon) use as it is defined, you can change the text after (colon) : of each keyword.
