IDEA:Wordpress theme creator
« on: August 18, 2007, 06:19:40 AM »
It is always tough to get theme of your choice,but you end up with bad choice that is another issue.IS there any editor possiblet that asks for the cutom templete and creates wordpress theme for you.and at the end you can then customize with your own colour.so final product is ready to uplaod and use wordpress theme.not bad idea,provided that this require much coding.

I'm rightnow creating themes by hacking other themes,i do find some oswd.org templters which i convert to wordpres themes but that is awful painful.Right now to achieve this you have to use Phtooshop design and slice to create XHTML design which is tough for non designer.i just wanto get things done quickly,if this thing is possible all u have to do is work on javascript or ajax for server design or query for sites.this isno doubt a great idea,for donation maker utility.



What u think your opinion.

mouser, i doubt it.

if there is some thing like these "wordpress theme creators", they would probably be the coders/designers very own system for pumping out themes quickly..

so arunpawar, why don't you come up with some type of system, or file base, for future themes? For example, store a skeleton wordpress theme in one dir, a slightly modified one in another, etc. and make it so all you gotta do to make a new theme, is copy one dir, to the new dir name, edit a few files, and you will have a quick way of making different themes.. of course you still have to do all the designing your self for all the graphics you want, etc., and if you can't slice, then you'll have to learn :) other wise you can purchase a photshop plugin called sitegrinder - it automatically slices layouts for you..
The clock is running. Make the most of today. Time waits for no man. Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. Today is a gift. That's why it is called the present.

That's great concept you came up with,i would love to see application like this developed.AHK is good point to start with such,cause just work on skeleton of number of design let user add color or images and then publish with rest of PHP queries,this way we can create but let's see who do it?

Thats good but we need user made customization.So this will not work we need some drag & drop feature in editor like we do in dreamweaver,then realign as per user choice.etc.

Lets discuss this editor once we get final idea someone from us might comeup for the final stuff,This will also give more tips  for using BCB or delphi if IDE is decided or any script is chosen.this is really a donation raising utility

 what u think?
