So, you ever want to design a WordPress theme?
Well, I’ve been thinking about theme design for WordPress for a while now. I mean, I’ve done some small stuff, taking the basic themes and customizing them to make them my own, as it were, but I’ve never done anything from scratch. I’m working on it though. And, as I think about it, and work on it, I’ve been finding resources that might come in handy. Here are a few:
- From Web Designer Wall, WordPress Theme Hacks
- From CSS-Tricks, Designing for WordPress
- General color stuff from AdamPolselli.com, “Get The Look”
- More color scheme stuff from pic2color.com, uh, pic2color
- If you’re designing from scratch, like for a new website, you might want to checkout Building With WordPress
- That article talked about several tools that are for more than just WordPress, including YUI Grids CSS and Aptana, which is a free, OpenSource web development tool.
- Then, there’s the Theme Lessons on WordPress.org
- and the book, WordPress Theme Design
