Great introduction, +JREAM ! I have some worthly stuff to share and make
this thing better:

1) BOOTSTRAP IT ! You guys can make your CSS styles based on a distro of
bootstrap pattern! It is a very good practice and make all your jobs look
more professional and easier to maintain and modify! Just load it’s API +
your style.css. Below you can download a variety of BOOTSTRAP AWESOME THEMES


2) Watch the video is a great boost to motivate and show you how easy is
the thing, but don’t forget about deeply knowledge! The best practice is to
study the official documentation standards of every technology you r


3) HTML5 – Stop reinventing the same stuff a thousand times. You can adopt
this HTML5 page pattern as a good practice on every project start, and
discard sectors that you don’t need:


Any questions may be posted here! Cheers.

Hi +JREAM , many thanks for this video. It was very helpfull.
However, when i’m on my dashboard and when I want to create a new article,
I can’t see the ‘Featured image’ plugin (usually located at the right
bottom of the page). I’ve been wondering how I can activate it ?

Thank you from France.

LosEagle says:

When you are making a videos doing things “from scratch” you should really
explain all the new things that appears in there. Otherwise its nothing but
an expectation that people will just keep retyping your code without
knowing whats going on. Not everyone wants to create things this way…

nocrodomus says:

Is there a specific reason of why you must have the header the footer and
the sidebar in different files instead of just put it all together in a
single one.

Great tutorial, dude!
It’s nice to see someone stumble around typos, like we all do in RL:)

Deha Ender says:

If you are not good enough coder to create the theme you want, you may want
to purchase some. If that’s the case, I recommend They have themes
apart from wordpress as well. And if you are good enough, you could try to
sell yours there in the future, it’s a pretty decent marketplace.

Brittany Piercy says:

How do you get that PHP WordPress on your netbeans to be able to make a new
folder and CSS sheet in the very beginning? I don’t know how to add the
wordpress to the side.

IgouMedia says:

I would love to test my skills at this point. I love design and WordPress.
I am about to start working on custom menus. I am great with css and seo.
If any other web site owners or designers want to work with me just ask I
will be glad to help. I don’t charge for talk, consultation, and social.
