  1. Hi Jonathan,
    You did a great job writing down here a lot of good information, especially about how to create a wordpress theme. I’m not an expert in php and your advices really help.
    Now, I want to change my defalt wp theme (on my new blog) in just one way: I want every post from index and achieve pages to has (read more) my default. Let’s say, they will can read only de first paragraph, or first 50 caracthers or something like this… not entire post in index.
    I really don’t like when the people can read with just one click on my home page, all (10) latest posts.
    Can you help me with this?
    I really appreciate!

  2. thank you so much for your detailed information and openness to share. I do small business sites…work alone…and look to the internet for kind souls like you who are willing to share information.
    When I worked in IT I was used to having coworkers with whom to share ideas but now my coworkers are found on the Internet.
    I’m going to concentrate on blog content first however I have triple marked your site as a favorite and will definitely share with others!

  3. Hi Jonathan,

    I’ve been blogging for a few years now and I’ve always wanted to create a wordpress theme. I’ve read through your artice on your site and it far great beyond any other i’ve seen so far. Thank you for that. It is helping me in a great way and also I’ve read some of your posts on your website and it has inspired me a lot. I’ve been learning web designing and creation at home as I cannot afford a paid class. I was wondering if you can help me with regard to Image and backgrounds used in themes and web sites. Where does one get them from, that is not copyright protected. Or how can I create one myself.

    Thank you!

  4. Hi Jonathan, I’ve been reading your tutorial for creating a WordPress Theme. I have modified the deCoder Theme by Webdemar. Now I’m just wondering: what will happen when I will choose another WordPress Theme? Can I switch back to my modified lay-out or will I loose my modifications? Thanks in advance!

  5. Hi Jonathan,
    Exactly the tutorial I was looking for! and it worked! But, I’m having a strange problem now. My existing web site, the one I incorporated my WP podcast into is a Socialgo CMS. And what I did is point one tab to the WP page I created. the WP page has it’s own URL “”, different server than the rest of the site.

    Now when I navigate away from the WP page it inserts a “.net” into my “.com” absolute links to the rest of the site???? I’m stumped, I don’t know if it’s a YAHOO hosting security thing or a wordpress security thing. If you’ve run into this I’d appreciate a word on it.
    Any way Thanks for the great tutorial!

  6. sorry for all the comments. I figured out kind of what it was. this:

    <li class=””><a href=””>Home

    When I take out the WP nav it works.
