What’s this series about?

In this series we are going to create a custom WordPress theme from scratch. We will learn how to create WordPress themes, use advanced features such as: custom post types, custom fields and meta data. We will be focusing our theme on a site based on a site like Kongregate.com or Armorgames.com.

    Nice tutorial, cheers!

    “my phone is ringing again… It’s three in the morning!” Normally unedited
    tutorial videos annoy the crap out of me. Yours, is funny.

    I love the skip my ramblings button, too- it is brilliant.

  3. SkepticalViews says:

    Whether or not i like the rambling would depend on the rambling content in
    each rambling instance. I will most likely like some of it but not all of
    it. If you’re not sure about whether or not you should include rambling in
    your videos or just “cut to the chase”… just give ppl an easy out. I like
    your idea of adding a skip-able annotation that’s click-able. This would
    definately ensure that even if someone doesn’t want to hear the rambling
    then they wouldn’t mind having it in there if they could just easily click
    to get past that (Awful) part. lol jk about the Awful… had 2 throw that
    in there for a quick easy ;pun

    Aside from rambling, I really like how you break things down to a very
    simplistic bare bones 4 line structure in index.php. If the rest of the
    tutorial videos follow suit like this, I think this tutorial series will be
    pretty good since you remove all the other clutter like this. Thanks!

    For more info on removing clutter aka theism… check my playlists and
    Ramble On! xd!

    its fine I appreciate that you are not rushing past the steps so its easier
    to follow along

  5. Jeroen Beltman says:

    I like your rambling, don’t worry. It makes WordPress bareable…

  6. Joe Wanjohi says:

    Good job, Austin. Greetings from Nairobi.

  7. Richard Norby says:

    The rambling is just fine. It adds personality and gives me more time to
    type in the examples. Thanks!

  8. Arjan Schutte says:

    Hello I am Arjan from the nederlands, I am disabald because off that i like
    the way you show and explain the tings. keep it up

  9. julius B says:

    “YOU WANT TO BE HERE!” – ahahaha!!!!

    just subscribed, thanks for being such a good tut.

  10. Amil Cook says:

    Just Subscribed hope that boosts your motivation. Great tutorials.
    Technology is such an important issue for OUR community! I see you
    Austin…Keep up the great work! 

  11. Paul Clarke says:

    awesome video tuts Austin. Very generous of you, much appreciated by me for
    one as I love learning this stuff.

  12. Jesse Jones says:

    Your doing a great job! Adding the personality that you do is great. Don’t
    be a boring number cruncher. Keep in the tid bits. I have been working with
    wordpress for a while now but am just getting in to the design aspect. I
    have closed other videos because they are boring. Keep the random infos and
    rants. Makes your seem real.

  13. BFJunkie says:

    I already setup my localhost with xampp and got wordpress working on it, so
    it would be nice for an indication of where I should be in the tutorial if
    I already had wordpress working. Besides that, I like all of it, including
    the rambling parts!

  14. Jaime Morales says:

    ramble on man, it keeps your videos from becoming like everyone else’s …
    just maybe not SO much. LOL, thanks

  15. Jovanka Ivkovic says:

    good job

  16. Paweł Popławski says:

    Thank You!! Your toutorial is great. It could be recorded a bit louder,
    but aside that it is awsome. Simple explained. Great job.

  17. martello44 says:

    Ramble away – good stuff!

  18. Rainier Pomeranians says:

    Some talky talky is fine… if its all business my eyes get heavy, lol

  19. Lukaszekkos1992 says:

    You could disable application voice, it’s a little annoying. Good work.

  20. mark4pros says:

    Great videos. very informative and so far spot on. I do like the rambling
    too! 

  21. Christian Lowe says:

    Keep it up. Only good videos I have found so far! 5 stars. Thank you!
