Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Customize your WordPress sites and blogs with ease! Now there's a

step-by-step WordPress theming guide for everyone from beginning

bloggers to experienced web designers, developers, and content

specialists.

 

Internationally-recognized WordPress experts Tris Hussey and Catherine

Winters introduce essential

WordPress theming skills using HTML, PHP, and CSS, techniques that can

be applied to theme development for any CMS, including Drupal, Joomla,

and Blogger.

 

In just 24 lessons of one hour or less, Tris and Catherine help you

use the power of the WordPress theming engine to take control of the

look, feel, and behavior of your website or blog. Each lesson builds

upon the previous one, 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 an efficient theme development environment; work with WordPress

features like custom headers and backgrounds; customize your theme's

headers and footers; and create and edit page templates and

stylesheets.

 

Tris and Catherine show how to enhance your themes with plugins 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, and "Did You Know?" tips

offer insider advice you can't find anywhere else. Tris and Catherine

also point out WordPress quirks and how to avoid theming pitfalls.

 

By the time you're done, you'll be ready to build custom themes for

any WordPress site or blog, no matter how large or complex!
