WordPress Themes - How to customize an existing theme

In our 'what topic would you like' poll, this was one of the most requested topics.  We are delighted that Laura Hartwig will be presenting on how to customize the WordPress 2010 theme.

Laura will go step by step in showing us how to customize the look of our themes:

  • navigation colors
  • font type
  • H tags
  • sidebar styles
  • and more

Laura has been building websites since 2005 and began to work exclusively with WordPress in 2010.  She now specializes in helping small business owners establish their web presence with WordPress.  By using existing themes and customizing them to fit their needs she is able to provide them with a high quality affordable solution.

Laura has a Degree in Marketing from the University of Illinois where she also studied art & design.

We will have wifi for everyone so feel free to bring your laptops.

Snacks and refreshments will be served.

    I have been developing custom themes in WordP
    ress for three years. However, it is always great to gain knowledge from others. You can never learn enough.
