There is no easy way to convert AI to HTML/CSS Split the design and save these parts as png/jpg images, then you can use them in your template.

CSS:
.element{
    background: url(../images/a-small-part.jpg) no-repeat 0 0;
}

So you’re giving me hope !! I was afraid if I have to learn photoshop for web-designing.

As still learning html/css/javascript, if I go for photoshop, then it will be a big mess for me.

Just to be sure, is designing in photoshop mandatory? Or will it be very helpful for me, if I learn photoshop for web-designing??

Thanks for your help .. :)
Basically Illustrator is not for web design, is for graphic design. I don’t know so much about illustrotor, so I can’t give you a good advice how to extract images from it and then use them in html.
As other already said, I recomend to learn Photoshop(it is easier than AI) and design websites with it.

If you have a great idea and good design skills, learn CSS3 and you’ll be able to design premium websites without Photoshop, Illustrator or any other design software. As an example: My latest template is 90% based on CSS , it was designed in Photohop by another designer, but for code I’ve used only a very small number of graphics. ;)

Why are you looking for something like GitHub, when you can just use GitHub :) I was thinking about going with bitbucket because it offers Unlimited free repositories but I rather pay for GitHub ACC as I like it’s interface better.

+1, I personally use Github Premium. :)

The only reason why it is rejected is because it does not add nothing new to the marketplace. It looks like many other one-page themes/templates already approved here.
Be creative and try to make your item different, with unique ideas and features.

Good luck.
Andrei.

Search on Google for “svn
This probably is the best:

Hey there!
Some time ago I made a plugin for WordPress to generate unlimited number of sidebars which was hosted exclusively on Github. Its name is SMK Sidebar Generator. Now you can use TGM Plugin Activation to install it with themes.

WordPress.org: http://wordpress.org/plugins/smk-sidebar-generator/
Github repository: https://github.com/Smartik89/Wordpress-Sidebar-Generator

I’m ready for sugestions, bug reports, etc. I hope this plugin will save some of your precious time and help you make your theme more flexible.
Read plugin description for instructions.

Best regards, Andrei.

This is not a self-promotion in any way, it is an information for theme developers.

Theme options, metaboxes, widget fields and other forms should be sanitezed before saving them to DB. Post title, content is automatically sanitexed for you.

login_enqueue_scripts & admin_enqueue_scripts are designed for plugins. You should use them if you really need them respectivelly for admin dashboard and login page. Basically no one theme should use them.

Enqueue Actions:
Front-End: wp_enqueue_scripts, wp_print_scripts, wp_print_styles
Admin: admin_enqueue_scripts, admin_print_scripts, admin_print_styles
Login: login_enqueue_scripts, login_print_scripts, login_print_styles
