Converting My Static Website to WordPress

Back

So I set out today to turn my static website, that was built using a blank HTML5 boilerplate, into a dynamic WordPress theme which I designed adding custom pages, sidebars, menus and widgets all hand coded from scratch.

It’s been a great learning curve; getting to understand about the API’s and how the various pages are structured.

I’m quite confident that I can now build a custom WordPress theme from any static design.

My next goal is to design a site using the Bootstrap framework and turn it into a WordPress theme with custom programmed plugins.
