I’ve recently had a few people asking me about bespoke WordPress themes – what you can and can’t do, what is ‘WordPress specific’, what starter theme to use, etc.
I would like to give a short demonstration on the basics of creating a WordPress theme from scratch, showing how it is much easier than people may think. I will also share a few tips and tricks I’ve picked up over the years that enhance and enrich bespoke builds, along with a few resources I’ve found invaluable. The talk is aimed at people who want to create a one-off theme for a single website (eg. a client project,
personal blog), rather than building a theme for distribution. It will require previous knowledge of WordPress, HTML, CSS and basic familiarity with PHP.
