How do you begin when you are designing a new theme?
I just did this great tutorial on designing WP themes.
It took me step by step through the whole process and really explained the loop and the PHP elements clearly.
I am going to try to design my own theme for a couple of my blogs but I wonder where to start.
I’ve heard some really start from scratch each time.
I’ve heard some start from the Kubrick theme and go from there.
I’ve heard some find a theme with the approximate structure they want and modify it from there.
I’ve heard some develop their own starting points like their own 2 column, 3 column, widget ready, etc.
I’m sure these are all valid ways to go, BUT for someone who is just starting out which method, or another one if you have it, would you recommend. By starting out I mean in theme design, I know XHTML and CSS very well. I am using theme design as a springboard into PHP.
