Coding a WordPress Theme from HTML / CSS in 26 Minutes

Thanks! Share it with your friends!


In this video I demonstrate the first steps of coding a WordPress theme from HTML / CSS. I also show how you can speed up the process by using Dreamweaver snippets. To create the basic foundation of this theme only took me 26 Minutes.

Second video will cover more advanced development

This is a great video. I’m just starting to learn WordPress so I can
convert an HTML/CSS site into WordPress, but the site is encased in a table

WP-Ask Me LLC says:

@LaMarquiseDeMerteuil I agree with you 100% – there is definatly a lot of
information that has to be learned before you can understand this – which
is why I am working to create a video on each area from beginning to end,
then compile a playlist. I have just been so busy, completing all the
videos is taking me some time 🙂 Until then, I’m happy to answer any

LaMarquiseDeMerteuil says:

This is perfect for those who already know the structure of a wordpress
theme, HTML and CSS. Those who do not will need to get their hands on
tutorials that will address those wants before they can get anything out of

the snippets. For the newbie training, please access the A B C videos shown
