Take your WordPress knowledge to the next level

Are you looking to code premium WordPress themes that will pass the coding standards review on websites like themeforest?

Do you have great designs or you work with a designer and you have HTML/CSS/JS/PHP knowledge and you want to convert your designs into great WordPress themes?

Do you have some WordPress knowledge and you want to expand your knowledge and get deeper into the word of WordPress and be able to sell themes online?

Then this course is for you!

This course is the essence of my experience with submitting themes to themeforest. In these lectures, I will share everything I know about creating WordPress themes. After completing the course you will be able to create themes coded to match WordPress’s and Themeforest’s coding and security standards. You should have no problems passing themeforest’s code review as long as you have a great design!

This is not a Design/CSS/HTML/PHP course!!! If you are looking for that, I am sure you will find a lot of other resources. In this course I will just focus on WordPress functionality. I will load some prewritten basic CSS I did for the theme that we will create, the goal is just to create WordPress functionality and understand WordPress in more depth. I will however teach you how to organize your CSS, compile SASS and minify your files automatically. Also you should have some basic PHP knowledge. I will not teach you PHP from scratch here, so if you are interested in taking this course, I suggest taking a beginners PHP course first!

Who is the target audience?

  • Developers who have HTML/CSS/JS/PHP knowledge and wish to create professional WordPress themes from scratch.

  • WordPress developers who want to take their WordPress knowledge to the next level.

  • WordPress developers looking to create premium themes that get approved on websites like themeforest.

  • Anyone interested in learning advanced WordPress and Javascript concepts.
