WordPress Theme Tutorial

Source: How To Easily Create A Custom WordPress Theme

So I found a nice tutorial on how to create WordPress themes, and have been playing with it all day.  Because my knowledge of PHP is limited, it is proving to be much more of a struggle than I thought it would be.  Getting there though.

I also wanted to learn how to create themes for other CMS’s, but hey!  Baby steps.  I figure, let’s master WordPress, so I can then move to other ones.  My main website, joebaumgartner.com/ uses a very simple CMS that I was able to find, called CMSMS.  CMSMS stands for Content Management System Made Simple, and can be downloaded from here.  I like it because all I need to do, is make the page in static HTML, and place a navigation and content block into the theme file, and that is it!  It is done.  It is currently hosting my portfolio.

What I like about WordPress it the functionality that you can get out of it through the use of Third Party Widgets.  I know that my World of Warcraft guild used to use a WordPress back-end for it’s website (now on Joomla), and we were able to have people register, host forums, and use some free progression and recruitment widgets that are available.

Anyway, thought I would share what I found.  I am going to get back to testing out making my own themes.

Have a good one everybody!

Joe
