On behalf of a friend, I am in search of some quality Wordpress tutorials and guides at the beginner/intermediate level. They do not need to include advanced topics (such as plugin development), just guides on designing templates mainly. Does anyone know of any good resources?
SitePoint has a new book on themes:
Build Your Own Wicked WordPress Themes by Allan Cole, Raena Jackson Armitage, Brandon R. Jones & Jeffrey Way
Chrisy Coyier’s Digging into WordPress is also very good, I believe.
Awesome, thanks for them I will look in to them. My friend does have limited funds so books (at full price) may not be the best option, so I am also in search of some web based tutorials also. Thanks again though.
The WordPress site itself has a wealth of information that would keep someone going for months if they had the energy to read through it all. I would recommend starting there, as there are probably many links there to further resources as well.
I suggest you visit this site… I found this when I was just starting to build my website and it’s really helpful… A Step by Step Wordpress Tutorial For Beginners | WordPress Online
I know HTML and CSS and don’t know too much about PHP but following this tutorial (which still work for we for later versions of wp) worked for me [although I am having a problem with the comments at the moment - that’s the only issue/thing it didn’t explain]
