Converted website without CMS to WordPress. How to make a theme?

  • M.Danz

    @mdanz-1

    I’ll be as clear as possible.

    I have made a website without a Content Management System and i have now decided i want to convert the website into a WordPress theme.

    So i added the WordPress folder to my localhost folder(where my website files are located) and installed WordPress correctly.

    The folder with themes is located in localhost/WordPress/wp-content/themes.

    So i thought i had to add my website files to the themes folder. I created a new folder called ‘Template’ and added my website files. I did this, along with style.css and <?php bloginfo('stylesheet_url'); ?>

    Now i went to manage themes and my theme is there. I activated and then went to customize. The problem is it is using my website files from localhost folder not the new folder ‘Template’ i created in the themes folder? For example it uses ‘localhost/about.php’ instead of ‘localhost/WordPress/wp-content/themes/Template’

    When i test the default themes(twentytwelve & twentythirteen), they take the website files from their theme folders?

    I hope this is clear, how do i solve this?

    How do i convert my website into a WordPress theme?
