I started with zero knowledge in web design, but I had the passion to create something for my community which can be on the internet forever. So I started learning WordPress tutorials from youtube.

I installed a lot of free themes just to experiment with WordPress and I found it difficult to delete them. Tried so many searches online but proved futile.

After browsing through the backend of my website for several months, I found out how to delete the themes I experimented with and of course, I don’t need them now.

Below is a step by step method I used to delete several WordPress themes I experimented with when learning website design.

STEP 1
Log into the backend of your website by adding “/wp-admin” to your website address in the browser tab. e.g. www.example.com/wp-admin

1. Add “/wp-admin” after your website address.

STEP 2
Enter your Login details to get to the backend of your website.
