  1. Thanks David. To put some flesh on the bones so to speak. It’s not a problem for me to hack through the WordPress app and pick up the requisite code (html,css, java script, JQuery, SQL, etc) and file structures as and where I have to, but I don’t want to do any more ‘digging’ than is necessary. I simply want to create a firm extensible foundation knowing what goes where and why, taking into account your your previous tutorials, which seem to be heading in this direction anyway.

    So, “info about what files make up a theme? “. Yes…

    “How they pull together?”. Exactly !

    Enjoyed this weeks selection of sites. Great stuff…

    Many thanks…

  2. Hi David. at the risk of repeating myself, I wonder if the ‘designwoop’ team might take on board the idea of putting together a tutorial around the dir and file structure of of the WordPress ap, and its (possible) minimalisation. From the sort of feedback you seem to be getting, and the fact that you are working in the WordPress niche, I feel confident that you would get a very good response if you did.

    1. Hi Steve,

      Not a problem, I have taken notice of your comments and am planning to do two tutorials for you. One for the WP structure and the other for the jQuery drop down menu.

      Is there any particular info you want on file structures? I assume you want some info about what files make up a theme? How they pull together?
