We’ve all probably heard of HTML5, CSS3, Responsive Design, and other “future of the web” buzzwords. Maybe you’ve even dabbled in HTML5 doctype declarations and “header” tags, or used CSS3 rounded corners or gradients. But most of us have only scratched the surface of these technologies, and for good reason – not everyone is using Chrome 16 or Firefox 9 yet, and even they haven’t settled on uniform implementations.
We’ll look at how Responsive Design is already beginning to change the way we approach building sites for different screen sizes, and peak into potentially transformative HTML5 techniques that are only beginning to appear around the web
Your theme is your site’s identity; it’s how you present yourself to the world. Are you happy with your current theme? Do you know how to customize and fix it, or find a better one? Where should you look for themes? How can you tell a great theme from a just a good one? What do you do with it once you find it?
Welcome the wild and woolly world of WordPress themes! We’ll tackle these critical questions, and more. Learn what types of themes are out there, how to find and choose a theme, and dive into basic modifications to your theme so it fits you perfectly.
