I know it’s been a couple weeks since the last issue of WordPress weekend resources. The following links cover a massive amount of WordPress theme development information, so hopefully it makes up for it.
How To Create a WordPress Theme – This series of posts by Ian Stewart over at ThemeShaper will take you through the process of making your very own WordPress theme from scratch, similar to a series of posts made by Small Potato over at WPDesigner over 2 years ago. This really is a must-read series if you’re interested in WordPress theme development.
Power Tips For WordPress Template Developers – This article by Jacob Goldman over at Smashing Magazine goes over a number of useful tips for theme developers, complete with code examples and screenshots. Topics such as how to code a featured post and members only pages are covered.
That’s all for this week. As always, be sure to let me know of any other recently published WordPress resources in the comments.
Looking for web hosting?
Question: What's the best type of web hosting?
Answer: The kind you don't have to worry about.
And that's precisely why I recommend HostGator. I've been using them myself for years and they've been nothing short of superb.
Fast load times, great support, WordPress-friendly, and good prices. Not much more you can ask for.
New customers can get 25% off of any HostGator web hosting package with the coupon: themelab25percentoffNote: I am a HostGator affiliate, but that doesn't make my recommendation any less genuine.
