New Theme Development

Ok fair,

I could put one together quick but if you remember I said I lets have some fun and where would the fun be in just throwing something together really quick?

So since WordPress comes with PrototypeJS  and Script.Aculo.Us, I thought to myself I would love to learn them. Sure I could use JQuery and JQuery UI  or BackboneJS and UnderscoreJS. But I already know them so where would the fun be in that?

I could use AngularJS and that would be fun and everything even though I already know that as well though I am working on other projects with that so yeah that explains that.

I do also love Magento which also uses PrototypeJS  and Script.Aculo.Us. So there is other benefits to learning them.

So coming to the conclusion that I want to build this with PrototypeJS and Script.Aculo.Us it is going to take a bit longer do to the learning curb. Though any things worth sharing along the way I will be posting.

Ok, I guess I better start to make this sight a little bit more fun then just a boring default them.

Personalize it you say, as no doubt most would want to do.  This thought has not escaped me though I have thought to myself that that takes away from time that I might want to spend working on my other projects or even better just spending time with family or just doing nothing. After all that can be a good thing.

Lets be honest all work and no play makes me rather dull.

With that said I believe a can probably wipe together a customized theme in a few hours, just where do I start. Crap there goes 1 hour…

As you may already know, I love WordPress. I find it to be a fun system to work with and develop not to mention it just seems to out rank most other open-source scripts when ranking for Search Engine Optimization(SEO).  So i took the time to buy and read this book and though it may have a few typos it does give a great general knowledge of WordPress and developing with it.

It was an easy ready and I managed to go through the chapters fairly quick. Plus the function reference in the back is very helpful. Great to have on hand.

Check it out and tell me what you think
