Create a Custom Wordpress Theme from Template

While I typically stick to front-end design & HTML & CSS on my YouTube, this new series is covering creating a custom WordPress theme from scratch! Part 1 out today, with the rest coming shortly.

Please consider subscribing to the YouTube Channel!

The first series covers setting up our WordPress theme files & folders and talking about which of those are required. We'll setup our screenshot, style.css file (which WordPress requires in order to install the theme) and all the template PHP files and get our theme activated.

Hope this helps out the folks who are starting out developing or working in the WordPress platform.

Semi-related, but I'll be creating the full how-to on creating the template used in this video from scratch in an upcoming free Scrimba course!
