    I was always like WP, but I didn't have a change to use it on my site. Now, I just switch to a new hosting. I installed WP with thier Fantastico installed. It was "EASY" for me to install with few clicks.

    Anyways, I just got a new theme I designed myself:

    Here is my new theme: http://unkool.com/new/

    So, how Do I get started? Point me some tips and tricks to do this. Thanks

    To get you started, you should read this article:
    http://codex.wordpress.org/Theme_Development

    Hope it helps!.. If not, try using one of the open-source themes.

    Would actually help a lot more than learning to create a theme from scratch. Customizing the one that has the "look" you want is the way to get rockin'.

    Good luck.

    Lorelle the first link you provided offers this on its page:
    CSS/
    From Codex

    (There is currently no text in this page) :)

    I agree with the comments, start with something you like and then build on it just to get a feel for it. I'm thinking baout trying my first theme from scratch, but the design is being a pig!

    Good luck

    No slash at the end.

    nden, do you need more specific help on this?

    Off topic.

    I have one question about the navigation menu. I plan to put my Navigation menu up to the logo header.

    http://unkool.com/new/ or http://unkool.com (notice the nav menu)

    Which one looks better?

    nden, I love your theme. It's ANYTHING but "unkool"! I like it with the nav menu in the header, but either way, it's VERY nice!
