Come and have a look !

Writing a book on “Working With WordPress Themes”, is one of the projects I really love to do.

I have learned a lot of things about WordPress and its features over the past three years.
If you closely watch the discussions that occur at the Forums, you will get to know a little bit more about the inner workings of “WordPress”, “Themes”, “XHTML” and “CSS”.

People always want to customize their sites, to fit their needs. Every once in a while, people will get struck in doing the customizations on their own. Most of the time, they just miss a little bit of information and once they learn it, they will move on further.
A little “push in the right direction” is all people need and that is exactly what you would see it happen in the Forums.

I wanted to present those little bits of information in a nice book format and here you will be able to see a few chapters of it as of now.

What this Book will do?
It will help you do your customizations in an error-proof way and will also point you to the right direction when encountered with any customization issue.

What this Book will not do?
This book will not teach you how to create a WordPress Theme from scratch. It will help you customize an existing theme.

With that Introduction, I will let you read the first few chapters in the book and your feedback on this book is much appreciated.

    A good introduction to the book. Seems like the book is targeted to the new and average theme customizer. Would be nice if there are some complicated customization tricks in the later chapters. I suggest having the free chapters available for download in the PDF version.

    Eagerly awaiting more, Sadish.

    I would like to see CSS and other .php files from your designs broken down by function, e.g., this is how you change the color of your text, this is how you change spacing between paragraphs, this is where and how you customize your “about”. . .

    I believe the loyal users of your themes (like me!) would pay for such a guide and become much better educated. . .saving you, also, from many of the questions in your forum.

    I do hope you will continue this project.

    Thank you for your effort. I already used your trick to move a picture left or right by adding class=”left” in picture tag. Now I think I will be able to change some more code than just adding a class style. Thanks a lot!

    By the way colors in Spotlight theme are just perfect!
