Introduction

I am going to write a complete guide to create your very own wordpress theme along with features or functions you would need to improve the theme.

I’ve divided the guide into several parts. Currently it looks like this:

  • What A WordPress Theme Design Should Have
  • Coding Your WordPress Theme From PSD to XHTML
  • Basic WordPress Theme DIY : Introduction & Making of header.php
  • Basic WordPress Theme DIY : Making of index.php
  • Basic WordPress Theme DIY : Making of sidebar.php
  • Basic WordPress Theme DIY : Making of page.php and single.php
  • Basic WordPress Theme DIY : Making of comments.php
  • Basic WordPress Theme DIY : Making of footer.php
  • Basic WordPress Theme DIY : Making of search.php
  • Basic WordPress Theme DIY : Making of category.php
  • Basic WordPress Theme DIY : Making of archives.php & 404.php
  • Advanced WordPress Theme DIY : Widget-Ready Theme – Dynamic Sidebars
  • Advanced WordPress Theme DIY : Theme Options Page
  • Advanced WordPress Theme DIY : Adding Post Thumbnail to Blog Post
  • Advanced WordPress Theme DIY : Adding Related Posts and Popular Posts
  • Advanced WordPress Theme DIY : Twitter, Flickr , Feedburner and Google Adsense Integration
  • Extra : Create a Fancy Search Box using CSS

I have completed 3 out of 17.

I will start working on the guide when I am free.
