Hello I am a Designer/Coder and was wondering if I could get some help.

I understand that wordpress is a blog kind of site so how do you make wordpress templates like what are sold here on themeforest? What makes them different than a regular website? Is there anything you do differently on the code? Is there anything you do differently on the design? like sizes and stuff?

Am looking for any way to learn about it looks like a really exciting thing to move into

Thanks!

WordPress is a content management system/blogging platform… Therefore, the site content is all dynamic.

This means that what you would normally have to login via FTP to edit, you can do by logging into your wordpress dashboard. This also means that to display the dynamic data you have to be able to access the database and use the template tags and functions that WordPress is equipped with.

Here’s a good resource to start with: http://codex.wordpress.org/Theme_Development
