Finally got around to building the new theme from a design Phil made.
I personally love working with WordPress. Building Themes are very easy once you learn the the basics and template tags. As far as the basics, A good place to get started is Nettus+ Top 50 WordPress Tutorials and once you get a handle for some of the basic theme structures, you can take a look at the WordPress Codex Template Tag Reference. It may seem a bit intimidating at first.. but it’s really not that bad.
Let me (and Phil) know your thoughts!
