    You could move the HTML files as they are into a new theme, but that would serve no purpose to WordPress, your web pages would still hold static HTML.

    Here’s a resource on the process of theme development

    Thanks but i want to take some static functionality like slideshow and other things as it is to my WP theme. how can i do that?

    For slide show you will have to find a plugin and use, possibly from the WordPress plugins.

    its already made. like this is a example.when i check to see.the firebug says, fail to load the url
    <li><a href="Resources/DPS-Muse-Hdr2.jpg?874"><img src="" alt="" title="" style="height:58px;width:165px;top:53.5px;left:0px;"</a></li>
    i tried adding bloginfo(‘stylesheet_direcoty’)/; but nothing. do i need to do something else?

    Can you post the entire error so we can look at the erroneous URL?

    here i m converting a working html to wordpress template

    moving it to WordPress is very simple and if you already have code for a slide show you can simply enter the HTML editor in the dash board and use your existing code and avoid using a plugin and resources associated with plugins and database calls. I can show you how to setup the site in WP using the default theme more than likely as it has a lot of functionality right away without plugins if you understand basic HTML, css, and some php. The easiest way to help you is to see the sites though, whats the url of the html site and the new site? then I Can advise on how I would do it, and I do everything very easy so dont worry 😉

    Andrew any help?

    help anyone!

    emaarkhan, did you ever have any luck with this if not I can show you how. Do you have a link again if so?
