If you're using WordPress, you've probably spent an inordinately long period of time searching for a theme you like, only to feel like you've been looking at the same thing in a variety of colors. Maybe it's time you learned to create your own WordPress theme. The first part of this course will help you learn to build your first, basic WordPress theme. We'll get under the hood and take a look at how a basic theme works (it's a mixture of HTML, CSS, and PHP) and create a basic, widgetized theme. The first part of this course will use an HTML5 theme.
