My new direction: learning to build my own WordPress themes using Build Your Own Wicked WordPress Themes from Sitepoint Press.
I have a few ideas for niche WordPress themes that I have not found built by anyone else, so I’m in the process of working through this book from Sitepoint. The book is pretty good, but could be better. There seems to be a lot of fluff at the same time as it failing to go into much detail on any one topic (so far). It might just be that I’m a little bit more in tune with WordPress than their intended audience, but I am going to continue working through the book. It’s teaching me some basic things that I didn’t know yet, like how the template PHP files work and things like that. I will post more thoughts when I’ve gotten through the book.
