7. Wordpress Themeing



This class we will go through what it takes to set up a basic theme in Wordpress. THis will require understanding the .php files and the role they play, and editing both HTML and CSS to structure a wordpress site to look the way we want.  These processes are simliar in Drupal customization and themeing as well, so a lot of what you learn here will in general apply to Drupal as well (although Drupal is a bit more compilicated due to its larger scope).
