New WordPress Themes Tutorial!

April 5, 2013



We just released a brand new WordPress training course that teaches you from scratch, how to create a custom WordPress theme. Some details:

In this series,  the viewer is taken through the entire design and development process, starting with doing the design in Photoshop, then building an HTML/CSS template, and finally integrating that template into a fully functioning WordPress theme.

The author demonstrates a wide range of WordPress functionality, including WordPress search, menus, sidebars and widgets, and how to theme posts, pages, categories and archives. In addition, install and use a favorite WordPress plugin: the Advanced Custom Fields plugin.

This course is aimed at intermediate designers/programmers. To follow along, you are expected to have a basic understanding of Photoshop, HTML, CSS and PHP. The author demonstrates WordPress using a local install on a computer, meaning that web hosting isn’t required to follow along.

Video Highlights:

  • Advanced custom fields
  • Widget Sidebars
  • WP Menus
  • Specially designed home page
  • Videos featured in Web Designer Magazine

Thanks for reading,
