Hoping to convert CSS page to Theme... (3 posts)

    I'm sorry for the extreme newbie post, but...
    I long ago obtained a beautiful layout for my webspace/blog, but never figured out how to implement it. I'd like to use it for WordPress, but I've not a clue how to do this (it isn't a WP theme per se, but was originally created for similar)
    The originator of the design is no longer available.
    It's called 'Midnites Mistress', if anyone is familiar with the design.
    The CSS is pretty simple:
    ****************
    p { font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 12px} a { font-family:
    Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 12px; font-weight: normal; font-variant: normal; text-transform: none; font-style: normal} td { font-family:
    Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 12px} li { font-family: Arial, Helvetica,
    sans-serif; font-size: 12px} a:hover { font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
    font-size: 12px; text-decoration: none} blockquote { font-family: Arial,
    Helvetica, sans-serif}
    .bg {
    background-image: url(images/bg.jpg);
    background-repeat: no-repeat;
    background-position: center top;
    }
    .bg2 {

    background-image: url(images/bg2.jpg);
    background-repeat: no-repeat;
    background-position: center top;
    }
    ****************
    That's all.
    How would I incorporate this into a WP template?
    Thanks for your help & patience

    Am also newbie in building theme, I've just done one using someone's template with only CSS file without codes behind. You could start by using codes from other themes, such as WP's default theme Kubrick, have a look at my post here http://blog.fongstanley.com/2006/09/18/coffee-n-cream-2/ which described my recent effort.

    Basic knowledge on CSS and understanding of how theme codes work are required before you could build your own theme. Suggest you develop it on a local PC/notebook before hosting it online.

    Good luck, happy coding.
