For years I have purchased themes and “hacked away” at them (just modifying basic HTML) to give the developer a better idea of what I’m expecting.
But I’ve gotten the bug to peek behind the curtain and see how the magic happens.
Is there a specific course, book, video and/or etc you could suggest that would basically help me learn how to take an HTML theme, “meld” it into a CMS (or "framework?) and connect to a database to create a dynamic website?
Now I keep hearing about WP and if you were to tell me to use WP, I’d consider it…but I want to learn the nuts and bolts…I’d rather do the programming than using plugins.
Or is there no easy answer to this?
