Your Guide To Make The Jump From WordPress To HTML

CSS Basics

CSS stands for cascading style sheets. Don’t worry, it’s not as complicated as it seems.

This is a type of code that is used for applying the style from WordPress to HTML. Think of it as giving your website all of its color, fonts and even layout.

If you want an attractive website, CSS is needed.

You can’t get dressed without clothes, right? So think of CSS as your clothing. You can’t dress to impress wearing old, torn clothing so think of your website in the same context.

Choosing Your Theme

WordPress is used as the example in this post. If it works for you then choose a theme that allows for HTML customization.

Customizing Your Theme

If you can’t choose just one theme, don’t worry. Go ahead and pick out a few different ones. They’ll come in handy later.

The greatest thing about going from WordPress to HTML is that you can pull what you like from one theme and use it on your current one. This makes for an easy way to get a great looking website in no time.

All that needs to happen is a simple copy and paste technique. In the code, simply add one line to your child theme using the ending “style.css”. This copies the style of the parent theme to the appointed area you want to change.
