  1. CS7026 – Semester 2 Project Introduction to WordPress Customising a WordPress Theme

  2. Introduction to WordPress What is WordPress? • It is the largest self-hosted blogging tool in the world, used on millions of sites and seen by tens of millions of people every day. • WordPress is an Open Source project, which means there are hundreds of people all over the world working on it. (More than most commercial platforms.) • It also means you are free to use it without paying anyone a license fee.

  3. Introduction to WordPress • You can download and install a software script. To do this you need a web host who meets some minimum requirements and a little time. • WordPress is completely customizable and can be used for almost anything. • It started as just a blogging system, but has evolved to be used as full content management system and so much more through the thousands of plugins, widgets, and themes.

  4. Introduction to WordPress • There is also a servicecalled which lets you get started with a new and free WordPress-based blog in seconds, but it is less flexible than the WordPress you download and install yourself. • Nevertheless, it is free so that’s where we’ll start. • Go to http://wordpress.comand work through the Wordpress Lab on the course page.

  5. Understanding Themes • A WordPress theme is, according to the WordPress codex, a collection of files that work together to produce a graphical interface with an underlying unifying design for a weblog. • Themes comprise a collection of template files and web collateral such as images, CSS stylesheets, and JavaScript.  • Themes are what allow you to modify the way your WordPress site looks, without having to know much about how WordPress works, much less change how it works.

  6. Understanding Themes • There are plenty of sites that host free themes and or sell premium WordPress themes. • However, when first looking for or researching themes, a good place to start is always WordPress' free theme gallery where you can easily review and demo different themes and styles:

  7. Understanding Themes • Once you've selected a theme to use or work with, you'll activate the theme by navigating toAppearance | Themes in the left-hand side panel of your WordPress installation's Dashboard.

  8. The Basics of a WordPress Theme • The WordPress theme essentially contains the HTML and CSS that wrap and style your WordPress content. • You can access the CSS files and edit them but you need to upgrade to the ‘pay’ version to do this. • It’s also usually the first place you'll start when incorporating jQuery into a site.
