CREATE WORDPRESS THEME
A few things before you need a template are:
1. Figure out the layout of your blog. That is, you should be clear about what should be placed where. Ofcourse, itâ€™s entirely at your discretion.
2. Create a simple HTML page that show cases your layout.
3. Mould the simple page into a beautiful wordpress template.
You can definitely tell about the various sections that make up the page. They are the header, content, sidebar, footer. To abstract this and give power to the template designers, wordpress has placed the various sections into different pages.
In addition to this, you have to add proper CSS to your design. Include them in â€œstyle.cssâ€.
Therefore, the files necessary are:
1. header.php -> Header
2. footer.php -> Footer
3. sidebar.php -> Sidebar
4. index.php -> Content glued with header, sidebar and footer.
5. style.css -> CSS
That is all you need to create a basic template. Clear?
