How to Create a WordPress Theme from Scratch

This tutorial will look at taking a HTML/CSS template and turning it into a functioning WordPress theme. There is so much you can do when creating your own theme we couldn’t nearly cover it all. So, we’re going to look at how themes are structured, creation of the core files and splitting up that index.html file.

The structure of a WordPress theme is fairly simple, I like to start with the CSS file. It details everything about the theme for WordPress to use. You then have index.php – it’s simply the template file you’re using with the PHP template
tags included. Included with that is header.php & footer.php, files that are used across the whole site. Now most themes don’t use just four files and that’s because WordPress allows you to use template files to layout different content. There are the defined layout files, such as archives.php and single.php. However you can also create your own, say, if you wanted
to make a page that had a totally different layout to the default.

Because this is such a large topic we’re splitting it into a two part series – this part making a simple but functioning theme from a standard HTML & CSS template, and the second part will look at adding more of the advanced features.

Designing for WordPress

WordPress is a hugely popular CMS for blogging. The blog section of CSS-Tricks is run on WordPress and I am very happy with it. By popular request, we are going to walk through designing for WordPress. In part one, we will be downloading and installing WordPress. Then we will install the “Starkers” theme by Elliot Jay Stocks to start with a completely fresh slate for our new design. No sense starting with the default theme, it’s more trouble than it’s worth!

How to create a WordPress Theme or Template

I’m going to tell you how I integrate website designs and WordPress into a happy co-existence. What I do isn’t exactly the same as what they tell you to do in the Codex on the subject, and I also tend to use a bit more “plain English”…but my problem sometimes is that I assume you have some knowledge of things. I’m usually wrong on that point. So, if I go over your head on anything, feel free to leave a comment asking me to clarify.
