You know what? I think Iâ€™ve changed my mind again. I mentioned in my blog that I really want to create a theme that I can say is my own. Iâ€™ve been working off othersâ€™ templates for a while now and I think itâ€™s time I make a â€˜By Charlieâ€™ theme. Plus, itâ€™ll get me more familiar with the WordPress template layouts a bit better. Iâ€™m still a little hazy with the inbuilt PHP functions that WordPress has. Thisâ€™ll be a good way to force myself to learn them. Iâ€™ve been meaning to sign up for a contribution role over at WordPress.org, but my relative lack of knowledge of the system is holding me back from that at this point.
So, although itâ€™ll definitely take longer than just hacking up an existing theme, I think making it on my own will benefit me in the end.
