In only 11 individual lessons this WordPress Theme Tutorial is going to show you how to build a powerful, up-to-date, WordPress Theme from scratch. As we go along I’ll explain what’s happening including (for better or worse) my thinking on certain techniques and why I’m choosing one path over another. Essentially, I’ll be teaching you everything you need to know about WordPress Theme development.
Here’s the list of features your finished theme will be able to boast of:
- All the search-engine optimization you’ll really need
- Including google-supported Microformat markup
- Valid and logical semantic markup structure than can be used to create ANY layout
- Smart default CSS layouts
- Dynamic Body, post and comment classes
- Separated trackbacks and threaded comments
- 2 widget areas coded to disappear when they’re empty
- And all the typical WordPress stuff you expect from a theme
I think that’s kind of impressive—for any WordPress Theme.
At the end of this tutorial, with code in hand, you’ll be able to do almost anything you want. You can even think of the finished Theme as your own personal website development framework for WordPress.
I’ve already used it to start another project of my own, The Shape Theme. Download it and check it out if you’d like to see some of the finished code we’ll be going through, live, in action. Alternately, you can browse through the up-to-date source code for the entire tutorial on Google Code.

Photoshop is the tool of choice for web designers. High Quality Web Design in Photoshop is one of the best and fastest ways to learn web design? Web site Designing is a creative process and it isn’t easy at all to get started if you don’t have the good idea, inspiration, skills and tools available. One thing is to get the idea or falling in love with a design used on some web site you run into. Turning the idea into a concrete design, e.g. a nicely layered and structured PSD ready to be sliced can be quite a challenge unless you have years of experience. One of the best ways to get started is to learn from others having enough experience and passion to share their techniques and ways of working in detailed tutorials. Great thanks to all the Photoshop Web Design Tutorial creators – keep up the great work! It is also important to master Photoshop text effects when creating advanced designs.
