Another great book by Thord Daniel Hedengren,
This review is from: Smashing WordPress Themes: Making WordPress Beautiful (Smashing Magazine Book Series) (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)I am a devoted Wordpress fan, but get frustrated by all the options and the multitudes of themes and plug-ins to choose from. This book walks you through creating your own theme. It starts with getting out a pencil and drawing out the layout on paper. You progress through various parts of the theme with both code and screen shots to edge you towards your final look. Some of the code is very heavy, but you can pick out nuggets that will help you with tweaking what you already have.
A priceless section of the book is dedicated to the myriad of available themes for Wordpress. The author has spent a lot of time researching these and gives you some recommendations and benefits of his favourites. Overall, if you develop your own sites or want to make your blog more personal, this book is on the money.
