    How to build a Wordpress Theme from scratch?

    Hi,
    Heres yet another question, this one I have researched online and can not find a good tutorial for it. Okay, I really like the sydney wordpress theme, but I really would like to build a site from scratch myself that looks like it. I know its easier to just use the theme itself, but any tips on how I can learn to design one like this on my own?

    I am still in the beginners stage, but I do know the basics of html, css, some javascript.....Thanks

    Hello,

    If you are still a beginner, you should not think about creating a Wordpress theme yet.

    Start to play with simple HTML, CSS files and then you can move to wordpress.

    It is more complex as it requires more coding skills.

    To build from scratch, you're going to have to be at least familiar with PHP. To get started, look for a video screencast on CSS-Tricks about the "Wordpress Loop".

    It's usually preferable to begin with a starter theme - an extremely minimal theme that contains just the bare bones that are required of any Wordpress theme. Underscores is popular for this: Underscores | A Starter Theme for WordPress

    And here's a tutorial that walks you through creating a theme from the ground up using underscores as a base: https://themeshaper.com/2012/10/22/t...l-2nd-edition/
