Good tutorial, but I wish you would do another one without using Dreamweaver, i.e., truly from scratch. It was helpful that you showed where you were getting code snippets. The WordPress Codex is such dense reading that it's nice to be guided through it a bit. Thanks!
Thanks you this informative tutorial. Here I want to take the liberty to share one other way for designing a #WordPress theme from scratch with this perfect theme generating tool like #TemplateToaster. I will recommend these tools to all the beginners as well as professionals. With this tool anyone can create #themes, #templates or #websites without writing a single line of code in just a few clicks . http://templatetoaster.com
It will work but you will have trouble using your editor cause parts are missing…I learned a lot reading the Dreamweaver commentary on their templates..I was doing it wrong with nested this and that. Also helped me do my first .php was great. The video is a bit painful and not very well thought out but worth it if your a noob like me
wpexplorer has blog with the code…well not quite…you can pick the bits out that our man richard is using..its called how to create a wordpress theme from html…then went through and corrected it and further referenced word press codex…still less painful than not having this video. Its a bit hard to see the screen so this helped…
THANK YOU for a most comprehensive "how-to" for us noob wordpressers!! After making custom static sites for years, I have made my very first CMS site thanks to your tutorial….was stuck on the dang stylesheets for 2 days before I saw your vid!! Two thumbs up, I will watch a few more vids as I go. Cheers mate!!
i do have big big big problem ok i follow all of the step but when i run it on wordpress the header content container was gone the only left was the php coding and its fine i think all div tags don't works?? can you help me with this thanks in advance.
Please work on your teaching style – I couldn't make it to the end. Also, stick with the theme of the tutorial – it was all over the place. Also, the constant googling makes it appear like you have no idea what you are doing. Prepare before you record!
Nice tutorial, it helped me a lot. Please accept some comments that could help you to improve future tutorials:
– Remember keep focused in the topic, this tutorial was about wordpress themes, it was not about dreamweaver, css, html or php, you should assume that people checkin this already know about that so avoid expend time in details about other topics.
– Avoid to include the parts when you look for information or fix issues at least it is planned as part of the tutorial.
-Try to have some Git where the code can be downloaded at the end.
well done! thank you – will return to review tomorrow and follow step by step… Maybe this will break my WP frustrations (I keep giving WP second chances but have always abandoning WP and returned to pure HTML/PHP/MySQLi) I'll give it one more chance with your video!
