4. How WordPress Theme Works

If you go the default theme folder (wp-content/themes/default), you should see many PHP files (called template file) and one style.css file. When you are viewing the front page, WordPress actually uses several template files to generate the page (index.php << header.php, sidebar.php, and footer.php).

5. Duplicate The Template Files

Copy the GlossyBlue HTML folder into the wp-content/themes folder. Then, go to the default theme folder, copy the comments.php and searchform.php file to the glossyblue folder.

7. Splitting The Files

Now you need to understand where to split the file into several files: header.php, sidebar.php, and footer.php. The image below shows a simplified version of my index file and how the markups should split.

8. Header.php

Open the index.html file. Cut from the top to where the <!--/header --> ends, paste it in a new PHP file, and save the file as header.php.

Go to the default theme folder, open the header.php. Copy and replace the tags where it requires PHP code (Template Tag): <title>, <link> stylesheet, <h1>, and <div class=description>.

Navigation Menu (wp_list_pages)

Replace the <li> tags in the <ul id=nav> with <?php wp_list_pages('sort_column=menu_order&depth=1&title_li=');?>

9. Sidebar.php

Back to the index.html file, cut from where the <form id=searchform> start to the closing tag of <div id=sidebar> and paste it in a new PHP file, save it as sidebar.php.

  • Replace the <form id=searchform> wrap with <?php include (TEMPLATEPATH . '/searchform.php'); ?>.

  • Replace the category <li> tags with <?php wp_list_categories('show_count=1&title_li='); ?>
  • Replace the archive <li> tags with <?php wp_get_archives('type=monthly'); ?>

10. Footer.php

Back to the index.html file, cut from the <div id=footer> tag to the end of </html> and paste it in a new PHP file, save it as footer.php.
