Themed like my site?

  • Greetings all!

    I have two big questions but I’m posting them seperately. The first is, how can I make the blog look like the rest of my site. Right now it has a generic look (the default) which is pretty ugly. I’d like it to fit in more with my site’s own look.

    Thank you!

  • You should make a theme that looks like your site. That’s one options.
    The other would be (if you don’t use the menu, links etc.) to place the Loop in a file of your site. In this case it needs a call to the blog-header and should be a php file.
    There is a temporary page in the Codex
    http://codex.wordpress.org/Integrating_Wordpress_with_Your_Website
    but it needs more.
    You can also search here for “integrating” and similra keywords; a lot of useful info will come up.

    Aha! I don’t know php coding. 🙁 Is that necessary for building a theme? How does one go about that? I don’t understand a thing after “lace the Loop in a file of your site. In this case it needs a call to the blog-header and should be a php file.” What is a Loop? Anyway, I am going to have a look at the link you have provided. Thank you

    You don’t need to know any PHP coding. I don’t know either 🙂
    A WP template file is still like a usual html file – just having little code strings among the html code; those are the template tags that make the WP to work 🙂

    For a start you should look at these articles in the Codex:

    Ah, ok. I looked at the first link you gave and realized I had to already have a style sheet. I don’t. I not only handcode, I am still using dark ages html code!

    Sigh. But I shall follow up on these leads.

    😉 I also handcode… but in two different files: one is the html and the other is the style.css
