This week, I also started delving into the WordPress readings, as suggested, and the reading on themes really helped clarify some of my lingering questions from last class — like what exactly the difference is between a theme and a plug-in. I hope to finish most of these readings before Wednesday.
For the final project, I submitted a pitch for creating a personal site. I am looking forward to this week’s closer look at WordPress so I can get a better understanding of what I want. Right now I’m worried my ideas for what to create and how to modify my site will either come out too ambitious or not ambitious enough.
Glad to hear! As for this question:
“I’m struggling to see the big picture and exactly how we’ll be utilizing all of these in our final project.”
PHP is programming language behind WordPress and allows us to no repeat ourselves through built-in functions and features, plus using dynamic templates instead of static pages like our initial HTML-based assignments. We can definitely discuss this more in class!
