ithi, Thanks. Good resource thanks for sharing, take a look at the bottom of the page at some of the other posts the author of this tutorial as created, he’s got some other very interesting topics relating to WP: These two caught my eye:http://line25.com/tutorials/create-a-typography-based-wordpress-blog-theme http://line25.com/articles/wordpress-fat-loss-diet-to-speed-up-ease-load
After “playing” around with photography and Photoshop for about 3 years I want to try something new and I decided to start learning to develop Wordpress Themes. In theory sounds reasonable and achievable but in practice ,at this moment at least, it’s a very very very dense fog…
I’m telling you this after 4 weeks of reading, trying and reading again. Of course, this is the normal learning process, which I believe any of us passed it sooner or later.
I’m a total newbie in Wordpress Development and I tried so far, at least two Wordpress theme frameworks, but the biggest problem is that I didn’t receive any support on my questions. Maybe at this moment and at my level are dumb questions but without a clear answer now I feel stuck and frustrated.
I’ve searched for online trainings and courses but all that I found was tons of code examples which seems too much for me
What I would love to see is how to create a decent theme from zero ‘till the final product. With simple and concise information, something like This is the final Theme and this is how I created it step by step. Is somewhere available something like this?
Any help, advice is highly appreciated
To be more precise after creating a small theme with a framework now I have questions such as:
1. How do you center or align the created menu? 2. How to you change the color of a menu button when you navigate above it? 3. How to create a box into the main page with a image?
For experienced users these questions may seem stupid, but for me, as a beginner gives me a lot of frustration.
For this, you can start your learning process on these websites (with articles, tips, online courses and ebooks):http://courses.tutsplus.com/topics/webdesign/courses
The Tuts+ website is part of the Envato family.
Outside Envato’s network (hopefully links will be allowed), you can try:http://www.sitepoint.com/
http://www.smashingmagazine.com (anything you can find on these topics)
Follow a normal learning flow and everything will make much better sense for you as you progress to your target (WordPress development).
