    CSS help with WordPress

    Hello, my goal is to create a WordPress blog that is very similar to my portfolio website. This is just for practice so that I can get used to modifying or creating a new theme.

    I've already understood that to begin this process, I need to create a child theme.

    What are the most important CSS classes used to modify the front-end of the child theme?

    If I decided to create a custom page that displays widgets on the main page instead of the sidebar, is that done with CSS or with PHP?

    "Need" is a strong word, especially if you don't want the giant, bloated mess that is the default WP theme. I've done a good number of themes, and haven't bothered with a child theme. I did look into it once, but ultimately decided it's not worth it.

    For a child theme, you'll just have to open the PHP files and look. That's one of the downsides to child themes.

    Could go either way, but PHP would be best.
