In this lesson we learn how to create a WordPress theme by hand, from scratch. We’ll write our own HTML, CSS, and PHP to create the basic foundation for a WordPress theme. In future lessons we’ll learn about all of the different pages and templates we can add to our theme in order to gain fine grain control.
