How to Create Custom WordPress Theme Full Course – In this course we’re going to be covering building a custom WordPress theme from an existing HTML template. This design is a fully responsive design and it is based off bootstrap. Responsive meaning when I break down to a mobile point we get the mobile media query we have the sidebar on the Left navigation.
We also have a few pages that are particularly important to blog style websites for example we have a home page that has little featured slider. We have a post page this would be what an individual blog post would look like notice how on the bottom. There is also a comment section with nested comments and replies as well and then we have what is known as a blog page. So this would just be like a static page like an about or a contact page.
We’re going to be converting this entire template into a custom WordPress theme. WordPress themes are really nothing more than a hierarchy of parts and what I mean by that is in this theme right here I’m just going to divide this into a couple little sections. We call it a heading this area right in here is called a navigation this area over here we would call our content area and then if we get clear down to the bottom.
In other words all web sites have kind of some sections to them and really all a wordpress Template custom theme does is it takes all those various sections and splits them apart into individual files so it’s sort of like creating components from your template instead of having just one big long HTML file.
