First Step :
- You should to have Webmaster editing tool (I use Dreamweaver)
- You should to have Graphcis editing tool (I use Adobe Photoshop)
- Important here, you should to have local webserver for a testing mode. (I use Xampp) Download and install Xampp now.
Second Steps :
- Draw your WordPress theme layout. (Single column or 2 column or 3 column or 4 column)
- Choose color (blue?, black?, white?, orange? etc)
- Ok? done? now we go to the next steps. (I picked 3 column theme) Here is my layout.
Open your Dreamweaver and create new HTML file and it should be like this.

Fantastic post and simple to understand description. How do I go about getting permission to share section of the article within my upcoming newsletter?
I think it will be nice to add other related tutorial in this one, like other examples of codes for the single.php or page.php template.
When I originally commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get four e-mails with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove me from that service? Appreciate it!

Now, I want to change my default wp theme (on my new blog – the old one is ok) in just one way: I want every post from index and achieve pages to has (read more) by default. Let’s say, they will can read only the first paragraph, or first 50 characters 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, entire all (10) latest posts.
Can you help me with this?
