Master the art of building custom WordPress themes from scratch using Bootstrap!
WordPress is the most popular CMS on the web and powers a large percentage of websites today. In this course i will guide you step by step, to building your own custom responsive theme using the popular Boostrap framework.
No more looking around for pre built themes and making them fit your website. Or even paying for themes on sites such as Themeforest.
This course will give you the knowledge to either build your own custom site and convert to WordPress, or convert your existing static HTML website to WordPress!
You can even use what you learn to publish and sell your own themes on Themeforest!
From the beginning you will get to work on our Spa theme template with Boostrap. Don't worry if you have not used Bootstrap before, if you have a little HTML & CSS experience I will guide you through.
After the bootstrap section I will then guide you through every step of the way to convert our Bootstrap template to a fully functional WordPress theme.
I will not just be showing you the basic conversion, we will go further with many other topics such as:
- Making our themes for translation ready for international users.
- Custom header images
- Adding custom fields to make our website customisable for non technical users
- Using PHP to pull into our website dynamic data
- Fully functional contact forms and search boxes
- Organising our code into templates
- Finer blog styling control using post class
- Filtering blog posts
- Fully functional blog comments
- And much more
Included is all the images etc you will need, there is also need no extra software, subscriptions or purchases etc to complete or take this course.

Hello, My name is Chris and I am a web developer and online teacher. I am passionate about what I do and about teaching others. I have started various online and offline businesses.
Whatever your reason for learning to build websites you have made an excellent career choice.
My personal motivation was to become my own boss and have more freedom and flexibility in my life. I also enjoy the technical challenge it provides and the way it constantly evolves. I built my first website back in 1999 and i have watched the web evolve into what it is today.
I try to make my courses enjoyable and try to remember what it was like when I was learning. I also believe the best way to learn is by doing and try to include as many practical examples as possible in my courses.
Thanks for taking an interest and I look forward to you joining me.
