    Question How to create a wordpress template

    Does anyone know where a good tutorial on how to make a word press template would be hiding?

    Ive started my journey on my blog and i really want to get it looking good and structured but i want to design it myself. I have basic webdesign skills but im a quick learner hence my blog about the whole journey on starting and becomming a webdesigner. Any advice would be appreciated as i really want to get it looking my own.

    Rather than developing a completely new theme, it is very easy to modify the existing theme. This would be the very first step to learning the wordpress template theme designing. Choose any clean and simple wordpress theme and start modifying CSS, Images and a few php pages.

    You need to have the knowledge about wordpress tags. You can get them here. http://codex.wordpress.org/Template_Tags

    Best of Luck!

    I'd suggest searching for tutorials and using the main wordpress site for help. It's fairly simple and I used the default wordpress layout and just renamed my folder and changed it to my liking which worked just fine.

    You can see mine by going to my sig link below it's a custom wordpress layout.
