Walk through the steps you need to build your very own WordPress theme! From the moment I first started using WordPress about eight years ago, I fell in love with it straight away and immediately started hacking away at it, learning the platform, making my own changes, and watching it grow over the years. In this book, I plan to teach you how to use WordPress, as well as how to leverage the API to create your own custom themes, plugins, and content types. In other words, I will show you how to make WordPress your own.

Mar 17, Kami Bee rated it really liked it. A great brief overview of the process of creating a brand-new WordPress theme. You'll need to be a competent programmer not to be completely lost in the example code, and you'll need to read more books or take significant advantage of the additional resources discussed in the book, but this serves very nicely as an introduction that will help you know where you need to go next or to start learning through experimentation.
