How To Create WordPress Themes From Scratch

Even though my current design is fairly new, I’ve never been very happy with it. As a result, I recently started the process of designing a new WordPress Theme from scratch, and was planning on blogging about my experience.

While researching WordPress Theme tags and functions, I came accross a site called ThemeTation. Launched on June 5th, 2008 by Kai Loon, it is a well designed site that includes a WordPress related Weblog as well as free WordPress Themes (SuperFresh and Blue Blog).

What really caught my attention was the very informative series Kai Loon put together on creating a WordPress Theme from scratch. If you’ve ever considered taking on that challenge or are just interested in how WordPress Themes work, I suggest you take a look:

Part 1 – Structuring, Designing in Photoshop

Part 2 – Slicing and Coding

Part 3a – WordPress Implementation

Part 3b – WordPress Implementation cont.

Thanks Kai Loon!
