Peninsula - Theme Customization Basics

I just got through a difficult move from Virginia Beach back to my hometown Hampton, so I didn't schedule the June Peninsula meetup. We're going to meetup in July though, and this promises to be a good one.

In this meetup I'm going to give a primer on theming. Do you think the look of the theme you're using just doesn't cut it? Do you want to swap out the color palette or change the font? Then you'll need to roll up your sleeves and customize that theme! Theming is the basis of WordPress customization and design. I will show you how to take a given theme, make a child theme, find the important layout classes and ID's of a site in your style.css file (the stylesheet) and customize them, and customize common styles.

I'm not charging a set fee for this meetup, however, donations will be accepted.
