Cybercafe Experiments: How to Convert Any Web Template Into a WordPress Theme

Max Limpag of The Cybercafe Experiments has written a great guide on “How to convert any web template into a WordPress theme” so you can take any open source or free web design template and convert it into a WordPress Theme.

Among blogging applications, WordPress probably has the largest number of great-looking themes to use. Still, there are hundreds of free and even open source web templates not yet converted to work with WordPress. Knowing how to make this themes work with WordPress broadens your choice of design to use for your blog.

Converting a web template is fairly easy if you take the time to learn how to do it. I wrote this guide for someone like me a few months back — eager to use a great looking web design and yet not knowing how to start converting it to work with WordPress.

He’s even provided a step-by-step how to video on converting any web design into a WordPress Theme.

I’ve been working on a similar article for converting any static HTML page into a WordPress page, so stay tuned for more on that as part of my ongoing Building a Genealogy Blog.

      Define SEO expert? One of the thousands of used car salesman promoting the secret to riches on the web, or someone who has been doing this since before search engines were invented and is in the top of all appropriate search results for the keywords and search terms organically? You guess. :D

      As for converting a template into a WordPress Theme, did you have a specific question?
