Converting an HTML template into a WordPress theme is actually not that difficult. Its a lot of knowing where to copy and paste. But note that this is a simple overview of the process from HTML to WP.
In this tutorial I give you step by step instructions on converting one of my favorite HTML templates into a WordPress theme. Here are the steps below:
– Select the HTML template you want to convert
– Obtain a barebones WordPress template
– Install a fresh WP site locally or on a server
– Select the barebones theme
– Copy the HTML portions to the appropriate places in the WordPress theme
– Enqueue CSS & JS files
– Make sure it works!
Obviously I left out some things but this is a simple overview of the process.
