With ClassicPress successfully installed, you can now decide which plugins you want to install or just start creating content.

In ClassicPress version 1, there are no plugins installed by default, but it still integrates with the WordPres plugin repository so installing plugins is easy to do.

There are three of the WordPress Twenty themes installed, along with three ClassicPress Twenty theme children which changed the Powered by WordPress to Powered by ClassicPress, but, similar to plugins, ClassicPress integrates with the WordPress theme repository.
