Chapter 6. Themes

Chapter 6. Themes

Well-designed content management systems seek to create a separation between design, content, and functionality, and WordPress is no exception. So far in this book, we’ve covered the fundamental building blocks of WordPress that primarily manage functionality: The Loop, post types, and plugins. Themes, on the other hand, comprise the structural CSS, HTML, and JavaScript code that handle the overall design, layout, and visual user experience of a website. In other words, themes are all about making your website look really good, and less about the programming that does all the heavy lifting in the background. There are plenty of considerations that muddy these waters, though, as we’ll learn later in the chapter, but for the time being, let’s focus on the basics of what goes into a theme.
