In creating my theme, I learned a lot about WordPress, HTML, and CSS. It took about 6 months of working on the design with html/css, something which I’ve always had trouble with. Anything visual is a struggle for me. Funny enough, I knew HTML like the English language 20 years ago, so much as changed.
I finally decided it was as good as it was going to get, still sucks, I think.
Once I started converting the code to WordPress, the process was just two days of work. That’s the kind of thing I excel at, back-end programming. PHP hasn’t changed all that much in 20 years.
I also gained a newfound respect for Adobe products. Sure, you can build art and design web sites with other software, but Adobe Dreamweaver and Photoshop are powerful applications.
