CSS-Tricks #25: Designing for Wordpress: Part One

WordPress is a hugely popular CMS for blogging. The blog section of CSS-Tricks is run on WordPress and I am very happy with it. By popular request, we are going to walk through designing for WordPress. In part one, we will be downloading and installing WordPress. Then we will install the "Starkers" theme by Elliot Jay Stocks to start with a completely fresh slate for our new design. No sense starting with the default theme, it's more trouble than it's worth! In part two, we will go over the theory behind designing for WordPress and how it's much like "working modularly" and actually get started designing. In part three, we will finish up the design and start in with some more advanced functionality.
