Publish Date : March 24, 2019

WordPress Theme Development in 2019 under #WPSpartans300 Mission. Absolutely Free training step by step. Let’s learn Modern Coding Standards.

This is Task 72 and 15th class of WP Theming Phase and we’re getting started with Core Concepts of WordPress Themes and Templates from scratch. Through out this training, we’ll explore WP Codex step by step. We’ll create a custom theme from ground up.

In this task, we started our journey to be Top WordPress Developers in 2019. My aim is to help, guide and motivate young freelancers so that they could start earning via job market places such as Fiverr and Upwork.

We have covered HTML, CSS, JS, jQuery and PHP Basics. By the end of this training, all Spartans will be in a position to upload their themes not only to WordPress Repo but also to Theme-forest, Creative Market, Mojo Themes and Template Monster etc site.

We’ll follow PHP , HTML, CSS and WordPress standards laid down by the official and core team of WP.

In this 15th class of absolutely free WordPress Training, we continued our discussion about custom post types in WordPress. First of all, we answered a few questions:

1) What are action hooks vs filter hooks in WordPress?
2) How to create custom page templates?
3) How to create WordPress Child Theme with and without Plugin?
4) How to display custom query of specific category on a page template?

This task covered a lot many things.

We discussed in detail all about Hooks (with special reference to WordPress Codex).

We talked about different parameters and arguments needed for hooks. Then we downloaded a WooCommerce Theme i.e. Woostify. Installed it and imported demo content. Elementor and WOO plugins were needed so we installed them as well. Then we created a child theme with the help of Child theme Configurator plugin. Furthermore, we discussed how to create a child theme without plugins.

In addition, we also talked about pluggable functions in WordPress (Parent Themes).

Finally, we created a page template with a custom loop on it (WP_Query) and we reset the postdata.

This was last task of basic series. From Task 73, we’ll be creating WordPress Theme for WP Repository, step by step.

#WPSpartans300 is a mission. When I launched this training session, a great number of young freelancers from Pakistan, India and Bangladesh started taking interest. WOW.

Therefore, I put all my energy to make this journey wonderful and full of success. So far, we have covered HTML Fundamental Training, CSS Basics, JS Concepts , jQuery Crash Course, Bootstrap, Speed and Optimization, SEO 2019 Complete Guide and now here comes WordPress, Spartan.

Let me tell you that without passion and commitment, you won’t be able to be a Rockstar WordPress Developer. It does take a lot of hard work ; however, the end result is awesome.

I will guide you step by step so that you could get results from your WordPress Training Mission. Get ready to excel as a professional developer. It’d be fun and exciting adventure.

300 Spartans will learn to unlock WP Codex. APIs will be the ultimate goal. From PSD to WordPress Conversion to WordPress Based Mobile Apps, Spartans will conquer their fears. 300 Lucky WordPress Developers will enjoy lucrative benefits of successful online projects.
