So I am a freelance web designer.
I love coding and have extensive knowledge of HTML and CSS. However, I am new to the whole “designing for WordPress” thing. Right now at the time of posting, this blog is just using the default WordPress theme that is current (Twenty Sixteen). Â However I want more customization. WordPress has a lot of themes available, but I do not know how to truly customize them from scratch.
According to w3techs:
“WordPress is used by 58.8% of all the websites whose content management system we know. This is 25.4% of all websites.”
Using the lovely device that is google I have looked up a variety of guides on how to do this but they do not seem to give me what I want.
The first one I found was from Siteground, which is a web hosting service that offers some WordPress tutorials. Â While this is a great basic example of how you can make a theme, it does not do things such as… teach you how to make the sidebar support widgets. Â Or how to include a navigation bar. Â I will continue to keep looking for more, but I have a lot of work ahead of me.
