Support » Fixing WordPress » Making a theme from scratch

  • Hi everyone,

    After having editted some existing themes to my likings, I want to try to create a WordPress theme from scratch. I already bought the ebook “How to be a WordPress Rockstar” a couple of months ago , which I have taken a look in really quickly. It looked promising, but the book was written in 2008, and I’m afraid that it is a bit outdated by now.

    Do you think the same? Or can you suggest me other sources to learn to theme from scratch in WordPress?

  • codex.wordpress.org gives you everything you need and then some.

    Also, these boards and Google helps a lot with specific questions.

    Thanks for your replies, I looked at the Codex before, when I was editting themes, and it provides some really useful info; though it doesn’t really go in depth in creating a theme as a beginner. The eBook I referred to does do that, but I am worried about the fact that its from 2008. Do you think that in the case of WordPress this is a real problem? Or didn’t that much change from the core of WP?

    A great deal has changed within WordPress core since 2008! I’d strongly recommend ditching the book and using the Codex.
