When we hear "set up a site" most the time the very first thought that comes to our mind is the look and feel of the site. We ask how we want our content to be presented and how a user will interact with it.
This meetup will be an overview of themes and theming for WordPress. Learn what to look for in a theme, and some questions to ask your self while you search. And even how to customize a theme just right for your personal use. There are tons of WordPress themes out there, but what one is the right one for you?
We'll also take look at some popular WordPress themes (free and premium), as well as theme frameworks (for you DIYs and developers out there), to see what they have to offer.
To wrap up the night we will dive headfirst into TwentyTwelve, the new default theme for the upcoming WordPress 3.5 release, and go over creating a simple child theme.
Ever wanted to know how change the font of a site and use one those nifty google fonts? Or change up colors & sizes of different elements on the page, and just add your own personal touch? Get ready to learn! You may even come out knowing a little more about HTML, PHP, and CSS from this meetup as I go over the basics to child theming and the power of functions.php and style.css
Don't fear the acronyms. If you don't know what PHP(Hypertext Preprocessor), CSS(Cascading Style Sheets) or HTML(HyperText Markup Language) all the better reason to come to this meetup!
