I have found what looks like a great tutorial to make a WordPress theme from scratch. I was wondering if someone who knows wp could take a peek and tell me if this will work for the current version of wp. O btw Chris I loved your WordPress theme series. It would be so awesome if you could do an updated one. I saw something about one in the lodge maybe I should subscribe to that. Anyway, this is the link. http://www.onextrapixel.com/2011/03/08/how-to-code-a-wordpress-3-0-theme-from-scratch/ thanks in advance for any help on this.
I don’t see why not. I have quite a bit of experiences with wordpress having customized almost 300 themes for clients. Not all off these are theme builds some tweaks or small customization but lately I have used the underscore framework http://underscores.me/ and it is a great starting point for theme development. Are you proficient in php or are you more of a html/css guy?
@teknofu, bro, i too have used underscores and it is pretty awesome. The html5 boilerplate make a html5 wordpress theme as well, but i have had a good amount of success with that. I say go for it! The more you mess around with stuff the more you learn (if you understand what it is you are doing). I say play around with the tutorial and give it a go, if it is to overwhelming then just use a reset theme as previously mentioned.
