Awesome WordPress Tutorial

I’ve been going through an excellent WordPress tutorial which I found here. The author “Small Potato” takes you through building the index.php file from the ground up so you really get a sense of how it all works. We haven’t done any styling at all yet. This is what my test blog looks like so far:

Another cool thing I am using for this tutorial is XAMPP – which is as implementation of Apache/MySQL/PHP for windows. It allows you to, for instance, install WordPress locally on your machine. Obviously very handy for playing around with your blog design quickly, and without having to leave your half-baked projects up on the web for all to see.

  1. Yeah, I have had that problem, where I enjoy the post, but I have no experience with the subject, . So when I have time I try to think of something to say and when I don’t I move along wishing I did.
