Use WordPress themes to customize all your WordPress sites and blogs, painlessly! Now, there's an easy, step-by-step WordPress theming tutorial for every web designer, developer, and content specialist -- including WordPress beginners! Internationally-recognized WordPress experts Tris Hussey and Catherine Winters introduce every essential WordPress theming skill, including skills that rely on HTML, PHP, and CSS (and can be used with any CMS, including Drupal, Joomla, and Blogger). In just 24 lessons of one hour or less, they help readers apply WordPress themes to take total control over the look, feel, and behavior of any site or blog. Each lesson builds on all that's come before, teaching simple to state-of-the-art skills, and integrating them in three complete theming case studies: magazines, portfolios, and mobile environments. You'll review WordPress basics and set up your efficient theme development environment; work with custom headers and backgrounds, CSS, and style sheets; customize headers and footers; create and edit page templates, and much more. Hussey and Winters show how to supercharge your themes with plug-ins and widgets; use child themes; update older existing themes; leverage advanced CSS techniques, custom taxonomies, and custom post types; preview emerging trends in theme design; and share themes with WordPress users around the world. Step-by-step instructions walk you through the most common questions, issues, and tasks... Quizzes and Exercises build and test your knowledge... "Did You Know?" tips offer insider advice you can't find anywhere else... and "Watch Out!" alerts help you avoid problems. By the time you're done, you'll be ready to build custom WordPress themes for any site or blog, no matter how large or complex!
