So I found a nice tutorial on how to create WordPress themes, and have been playing with it all day. Â Because my knowledge of PHP is limited, it is proving to be much more of a struggle than I thought it would be. Â Getting there though.
I also wanted to learn how to create themes for other CMS’s, but hey! Â Baby steps. Â I figure, let’s master WordPress, so I can then move to other ones. Â My main website,Â joebaumgartner.com/Â uses a very simple CMS that I was able to find, called CMSMS. Â CMSMS stands for Content Management System Made Simple, and can be downloaded fromÂ here. Â 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! Â It is done. Â 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. Â 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. Â I am going to get back to testing out making my own themes.
Have a good one everybody!
