Hello,

So I created a website in bootstrap and I want to convert it to wordpress. Is it as simple as just moving the css to bootstrap roots framework and adding some php to the index page?

If you have no experience of WordPress theme building then I’d advise you to build a quick bare bones theme without bootstrap first just so you can get a clue what is going on. Even if you were to play around with one of the blank themes for a couple of hours you’d find get the geography. http://speckyboy.com/2010/03/22/10-blanknaked-wordpress-themes-perfect-for-development/. Also you will probably get a lot out of http://codex.wordpress.org/Theme_Review especially if you plan on releasing it. Keep in mind that there is nearly always a “WordPress” way of doing things and it’s not necessarily the way you know. Eg enqueing stylesheets and scripts but there are plenty more examples..
