Project Requirements


Before creating the WordPress theme, a Bootstrap 4 version was made in order to make the conversion process smoother.

With the fully functional Bootstrap version of this site up and running it was time to convert it into a WordPress theme. This process did not prove to be as challenging as I thought it might. The HTML had to be broken down into various template files in order to function in the WordPress way. These included:

  • header.php
  • footer.php
  • front-page.php
  • index.php
  • functions.php

There are many more templates that can be used in a WordPress site, but these are the main ones. If using a starter theme like underscores, a lot of templates will come pre-loaded that can be customized and cut down development time. For this project, I created the template files from scratch in order to better understand how things work under the hood of a WordPress website. Understrap is another starter theme option that comes preloaded with Bootstrap that could be used.
