Building WordPress Themes From Scratch – Joe Casabona [eBook] – WordPress Themes

From the moment I first started using WordPress about eight years ago, I fell in love with it straight away and immediately started hacking away at it, learning the platform, making my own changes, and watching it grow over the years.

In this book, I plan to teach you how to use WordPress, as well as how to leverage the API to create your own custom themes, plugins, and content types. In other words, I will show you how to make WordPress your own. Packaged with this book, you will find: This book reads much like a long, multi-part tutorial, where I take you through my design process, explaining what I do and why I do it every step of the way. With the ability to make your own content types — each with its own theme template — you can take WordPress from being a CMS only limited to blog posts and pages, to a CMS that can manage any kind of content you can imagine.


There are vast directories of both free and premium plugins available that vastly expand the capabilities of WordPress. In this final section of this book, we will build our own plugin.

It goes through creating the main page, side pages, and even custom formats using an existing HTML site made dynamic by adding WordPress functions. However, the formatting on Kindle looks like someone just hit the convert button and didn’t check it over.

The code is formatted like part of the text, and footnotes appear in the middle of pages. Also, the lack of an explanation of how to include comments is a glaring omission. The author stated that he and his clients are usually not interested in comments, but it’s an important topic when writing a book. Still, I was able to get a lot of my theme together using this book as a reference. Very good book if your’e trying to build exactly the theme that the author is using for his examples.

And some of it can be adopted for your real life projects too. But it leaves out way too much of what you really need to know. And there’s formatting issues, it doesn’t render very well on a Kindle.


The author is using footnotes in the worst possible way: Great Book for beginners learning to build WordPress themes. This book is a hot mess. The formatting is messed up with large blocks of text in the wrong place. The author employs not only accepted bad practices for WordPress but for web design in general.

His code is not even current. His final theme as downloaded and activated does not function. See all 4 reviews.
