My next course I took was how to create a WordPress template which is something I always just bought from a template site. The themes now have all kinds of extra crap and plugins i didn’t want so figured this course on creating a theme from scratch would be a good start.
Being my first time checking this out I was actually quite impressed at the depth in which the themes can go. While I thought the mixing of PHP in the templates could be a bit messy I can live with that. With that course I put together the theme for this site (which admittedly isn’t much different form what we learned in the course) but picked up the knowledge to make changes as I go.
Took me a few days to work through the course which unfortunately knocked me out of my Symfony learning but I can cycle back around to that soon.
