Ready to build a WordPress theme?


Doing things in the right order will save you a lot of time, especially when you’re new at it. Here’s the process I use.


1. Plan and wireframe your theme.

2. Create your theme file.


3. Set up the standard WordPress functions and features you want to use.


4. Pull all the dependencies you want for your theme.


5. Build your front-end functionality.


6. Style your theme template.


7. Test your theme template.


8. Publish your WordPress theme!
