Creating a custom WordPress theme basically starts off by creating place holders for your BLOG’s content using HTML codespec. Before starting on the journey of a custom Wordpress theme creation, you need to first have a clear picture in your mind of what would be its structure.
The easiest way to have clarity about a custom theme is to first create a simple paper / pencil sketch of what the BLOG’s content placeholders should look like. Take a look at diagram 1 for an example. In diagram 1 each rectangle represents a BLOG container that will display some BLOG content or the other.
In case you are wondering where the BLOG content is located, a lot of it is in the Wordpress database, some content such as images used on the BLOG and style sheets that style BLOG content would be in different folders and so on which are all part of the Wordpress installation.
