I have realized i have to learn mysel how to use a CMS, and wordpress seems to be the way to go. I have tried ExpressionEngine and i like that u get a clean slate to start with, but i feel i need to know wordpress aswell as big as it is.
So I installed WP locally, and opened up the twentytwelve theme in my texteditor.... And even this simple theme has like a million different files and thousands of lines of CSS. I felt overwhelmed... where do I start?!
Im not the type that wants to put my own mark on a website, not just buy a theme without tweaking the looks to my liking. I like it best when i start with a blank slate. But coding blogs etc is way to timeconsuming...
So what is the best way to customize different themes, Do I really have to scroll thousands of lines of codes to find what i want to change? Like if i buy a theme, but i want to customize it beyond recognition... HOW? There has to be some more developer friendly way than to dive into thousands of lines of code?
