WordPress from scratch : Part 2

Posted on

Welcome to part two of my 'WordPress from scratch' series! Since last time I have come up with a design for the blog and coded it up into XHTML and CSS. Before moving onto part two I recommend that you come up with your own design and code it up too. Though if you want to follow on exactly as I'm doing, you can download my XHTML and CSS.

Please note that I did mention in the video you could download the PSD, but due to misuse it is unavailable.

This second part covers taking the XHTML, CSS and images into a WordPress theme and getting WordPress to recognise this. Stay tuned for part 3 where we'll get into the really juicy stuff!

    I wish I’d read this a week ago when I was building my first theme.

    Its a painful process for a php-hedge wizard but this is exactly what us fledglings need!

    Looking forward to picking up some tips in part 3!
