Introducing: Colour Coding! Colour Coding will be a series of free web design/development chats and paid e-courses for the more advanced topics.
Colour Coding Talks
I’m going to start putting together regular Colour Coding talks on Google Chat. Each chat will have a pre-planned topic (like SEO, or Getting Started with WordPress, etc.) but ultimately it’s just going to be us, hanging out, chatting, sharing knowledge, and answering questions.
I’ll probably have a limit on the number of people who can come to each chat to ensure it’s not too hectic. So make sure you get in early. 😉
Interested in these chats? Register your interest!
If you’re interested in participating, please fill out the below form. I’ll be sending out an email once I have details about the first chat. 🙂
I do a lot of tutorials on Nose Graze, but I do tend to stay away from some of the REALLY in-depth topics because it’s hard to just put those in a post. For example: How do you make your own WordPress theme? That’s way too in-depth for a single blog post. Or even: How did you make that custom archive widget in your sidebar? That involves PHP coding, making a custom widget, and ajax. I don’t know how to explain all that in a blog post! There’s just so much information.
These e-courses will explore these topics in detail through a series of posts. You’ll have tasks to complete, I’ll check your work, and we can even go over it one-on-one to ensure you’re understanding all the concepts.
Learn how to make your own WordPress theme!
My first course is going to teach you how to make your own WordPress theme. This course will have a few pre-requisites since it’s not starting web development from scratch—just the process of creating a WordPress theme. You would have to already be pretty familiar with HTML and CSS. This course is designed for people who know how to make a pretty basic, static website, or know their way around HTML/CSS pretty well, but they want to learn how to incorporate that into a custom WordPress theme. The course would include:
- Describing the structure of a WordPress theme and its template files (style.css, index.php, functions.php, single.php, etc.).
- A basic introduction to PHP and how it’s used in WordPress.
- Understanding The Loop (repeating post areas).
- How and where to add your own CSS.
- Adding widget areas.
- Adding customizable navigation menus.
