    Hello All,

    I'm just new to wordpress and I want to know some things about it so I hope you guys can help me.

    First of all I have a couple of websites that I want to convert to wordpress site's.The question that i have is not just how to do it but more how can i learn it. I have an account on lynda.com and there are some videos about wordpress. Here are the links to the vids. beginning and the second one is creating a theme

    Now how can i best begin to learn and understand wordpress and learning how to create themes and convert themes in general.

    Are these video's a good way to learn it or does someone have a better tutorial/way for learning these things

    There's lots of good info here:


    But if you are brand new to WP, you may want to start with an existing theme and learn some of how it works before jumping into making your own.

    You could also look at some mostly "blank" themes such as Toolbox and BlankSlate.
