customizing in html code? (6 posts)

    newbie here, I am wondering if there is a way to customize the pages/themes in html, or at least incorporate wordpress within an html page to where my wordpress blog will be within a table or iframe in the middle of the page somewhere, instead of taking up the whole page. Any help would be great.

    ps sorry if the subject had already been touched on, I searched but couldn't find anything, later then.

    Might want to check out: http://codex.wordpress.org/Theme_Development - there's also a lot of info available through Google.

    Personally, I'd not put WordPress content into a table or iframe - I'd either use it as the CMS for the site, or add it onto an existing site.

    The themes are all PHP based, so there is xhtml peppered with PHP template tags, includes, etc.

    Hope that helps.

    I'm also new to WP and want to use it as CMS. I would like to develop/design a theme similar to http://www.qbrushes.com

    Do you have any ideas or suggestions as to where I may find the necessary help.

    Thanks.

    I'd recommend checking out WordPress Theme Design by Tessa Blakeley Silver.

    There are a ton of great tips for someone starting to create custom themes; even more CMS-oriented themes.

    Arguably, all the info you really need is in the online WordPress documentation, but it's kind of nice for some to be able to have some instruction in book form. It's well worth the $30 if you're just starting out. :)

    I have ran into it. I was hoping you knew what you are talking about, but please don't spam the forum. Keep the affiliate links to yourself. Thanks

    Bohica,

    I actually do know what I'm talking about, partly because I've done a lot of reading on and offline. Also, I practice constantly by building sites on WordPress.

    I was seriously trying to help and I think, if you actually look at the link, you'll see that it is not an affiliate link. If it were, I'd put a disclaimer.

    If you looked at my profile, I think you'd also see I'm pretty committed to trying to help WordPress users.

    My suggestion: read a book, read the documentation, consult Google, but don't come here expecting help and criticize the answers you get for free from those trying to assist you.
