    I am going through the files the the default theme of WP … I only see .php .css & .js files … I have yet to see any .html files … I am just gonna try and build a temp from scratch on a localhost environment … I have opened up most of the files in the default theme … and I only see php code … so … what is the direction I need to start at to get this stuff rollin …

    my start file is named this for basic purposes …

    scratch_WP

    and inside … i have the following files save but they are blank …

    404 .php
    archive .php
    comments .php
    footer .php
    functions .php
    header .php
    image .php
    index .php
    links .php
    trl .php
    search .php
    sidebar .php
    single .php
    style .php

    I would imagine I am gonna need some .js < ---- this is jQuery correct ... What else am I gonna need … I am gonna just hand code everything … I have also done some research and Google, Yahoo, TypeKit, BrandsoftheWorld, CSS-Tricks, Itunes and Facebook all of which is using html5 for the doctype declaration all of which have MASSIVE AMOUNTS OF TRAFFIC … so I am going to do the same … since my site is not a major site … I should be safe with using 100% HTML5 … if this is just stupid feel free to let me know … thanks …

    .js does not equal ‘jQuery’. Any Javascript file ends with .js.

    There will be no HTML files in your theme’s folder. My process goes something like this:

    Design templates
    Create HTML templates and do all of my testing
    Convert HTML templates into WordPress templates
    Enter content
    Launch site

    I do mockups on paper first before I design the actual thing on Photoshop. There is a lot of debate as to whether one should start with HTML/CSS right away, but prefer not to. I can make changes easily.

    I also do wireframing with pencil/paper.

    Very cool! I’ve looked at a few web-specific note books. There are too many choices for me to make a purchase!
