About This Class

Building custom WordPress themes is tough! You have to know PHP, JavaScript, HTML, CSS and be familiar with the WordPress API.

Child themes are a great way to learn how WordPress themes work, without being completely overwhelmed by unfamiliar code. This course is the first of 3, and will focus on using CSS to customize any WordPress theme you can find.

I'll be adding future courses covering PHP and JavaScript for child theme development - make sure to follow me for updates!

Good job! Thank you. Now people know that adjusting premium or free WordPress themes is an easy process)
Exactly what I needed! Most Wordpress theme classes here are either too basic or too complicated teaching how to build an entire theme from scratch, but this was the perfect amount of customization to a parent theme. Really hope to see more lessons from Heather! :)
