I just installed WP under my localhost and I must say, I am beginning to love it. And like everyone, I have developed an inclination towards creating WP themes. But..

  1. I am not good in XHTML and CSS
  2. I am a n00000b in PHP
  3. not good in jquery
  4. need MySQL? oh no!

But I’m passionate

1 Learn xhtml / css @ www.w3schools.com

2 PHP knowledge isn’t esential in building wordpress templates

3 Jquery isn’t essential in theme,ing.

4 Your web host will need mysql along with php to run it, but you do not need ti know it

I have built quite a few wordpress sites recently as people are flocking to it. They love it as it’s easy to use, easy for designers to code to and it’s free

In wordpress you can build pages or posts,

index.php is the site your visitors see, it’s the page all the content is on.

index.php will show a list of the posts you have made.

page.php is the actual pages on the wordpress site.

Page.php will show any a page you created (in the admin menu, go to pages, then add new page)

www.wordpress.org has the perfect way to show this, their navigation is made up of pages,

You can customise the page.php to look diffent through building a page.php through the template, a posts page can be changed by modifying single.php

As you have said you have no knowledge of WP, no knowledge of xhtml/css, i do recommend you don’t touch WP from a design perspective.

If you want a WP site either, download a free theme from wordpress.org, buy one from here (or another template site) or pay someone to build you one (like me).

I didn’t touch wordpress till I knew xhtml/css and basic php. You will also need to learn the wordpress codex if you want to create complicated designs

The love for Wordpress will only continue to grow, my friend. I recently started and I want to learn EVERYTHING about it because it’s so exciting. It expands your creativity and functionality way past XHTML /CSS.

I’d recommend getting the How to Be a Wordpress Rockstar book from Envato. It has loads of useful stuff, including 150 or so pages exclusively on HTML /CSS. I’m still in the process of reading it, but from the 250 pages that I’ve read, it’s all good, high-quality stuff with loads of screenshots.
