    How to convert template into wordpress - having problems

    OK, I have a bootstrap 3 wordpress template.

    Once you open it is just has about 25 different page versions all ending in .html along with about 10 css stylesheets, plugins folder, js folder.

    It could be used as static .html site out the door but I want only the blog page style part and it to be dynamic.

    Just paid some freelancer on one of those sites to do it and he made it worse, lots of time wasted, language barrier, and had to correct errors.
    he installed bootstrap2, when this template is 3. Problems with that?

    So, for now I have a temporary theme in the place of the target style.

    How would go about making the blog look like the target bootstrap3 template ?

    My template is on wrapbootstrap dot come/themes

    hard code it ?

    OR is there a place that would understand exactly what I want

    I looked for tutorials online to install it and have found none nor did I receive instruction for this. I guess it is assumed one has advanced knowledge in wp coding. Please, I help if you can make it simple for me.

    Thanks

    If you want to start developing a theme for wordpress, start here:

    http://codex.wordpress.org/Theme_Development
    http://codex.wordpress.org/Stepping_Into_Templates
    http://codex.wordpress.org/Stepping_Into_Templates

    This applies if you're starting from scratch or starting from a static HTML/CSS template.

    Also, it looks like there's quite a number of options for wordpress themes and bootstrap 3: https://www.google.com/search?q=boot...ordpress+theme

    thanks. I just started converting it a few hours ago after doing a search. I made it harder than it was but then again I am not a developer.
