Problem transforming HTML site into WordPress Theme

  • Hey guys, I am about to make a huge change to my HTML website and my question is, where is a good tutorial that I can follow to transform my HTML website (www.blucable.com) into a wordpress theme so I can switch the old HTML to PHP based website.

    The reason I am doing this, is because I want my website to be more functional and since I am adding an online store, I want everything to be in one place, the website itself and its store.

    Thanks in advance for your time and comments.

    I would like to add, I already tried googling some tutorials, but they are always missing some information and they are pretty old. I already tried building a theme myself, and I have problems with the css style sheet, and I also have problems with the index calling the header, footer which some tutorials don’t show how to set this up correctly.

    I recently made a theme and I got it almost perfect, but the styles were messed up, like something was not calling the stylesheet the proper way. Here is the address to the wordpress with the theme I made (looks pretty messy) http://www.blucable.com/wordpress/

  • You’ll want to modify your theme to dynamically put the url in front of the style.css.

    something like:
    <?php bloginfo(‘template_url’); ?>/style.css

    in your index.php file, put something like
    <?php get_header(); ?> for your header file

    Convert HTML to WordPress

    i followed this tutorial and for the most part im up and running fixing issues along the way..

    @transom wow thanks! I added those codes to my stylesheet part and the site is now getting to look better, now I need to figure how to make my jQuery to work as well as other things.
