One of the best things about WordPress is how themes let you customize the way your site looks and works. Though there are lots themes available for free, you may want to create your own in order to communicate your unique online identity. In this workshop developer and trainer Joe Chellman shows you two approaches to creating a theme. You’ll learn how to create a child theme from an existing theme, using the current default theme, Twenty Twelve, as an example. You’ll also learn how take a single, static HTML file (with attendant CSS and image files) and build it into a WordPress theme with support for widgetized sidebars and custom menus.
