Screencast #4 – Creating a WordPress Theme – Part 2

Please note: This post was written 8 years ago, which is an age in programming terms, so please don't treat this as gospel! I'll be updating all posts soon enough, but if you'd especially like this one to be updated let me know.

Finishing up

In part two of this tutorial I show you how to finish off creating a basic WordPress theme, demonstrating the creation of a single post page as well as looking at how the commenting system works. Also in the video is how to create custom page templates and then apply them to different pages, as well as using theme options to enhance the user experience; and of course "widgetizing" the sidebar.

Here is the link to the Nettuts article.

    Thanks again so much for the awesome video tutorial! I have got a site now functioning because you did such an awesome job explaining how things work and how to do the basics. Once the site is live, I will send you a link (still have the wonderful browser testing to do along with some minor tweaking and portfolio setup)!
