    OK, noob question here but these dang WP themes are driving me crazy. I want to take my created html page and make it part of my WP home page. I can semi-create html code but WP is new to me. Any way I can just copy html code and paste into a WP theme? Or is there a tool or plugin that could make this happen?

    Thanks.

    That's basically what you do when you build a WP theme. You build it in basic form first (HTML/CSS), which you already have done right?... then once its complete you simply copy and paste your code into a prebuilt WP theme.

    There are some tutorials out there to help you out, it'll take some reading and time but if you just take it slowly you can definitely assemble a simple WP theme in a day or two. If you understand basic HTML/CSS you can do it, knowledge of PHP isnt required but it helps.

    I recommend you use this theme as your foundation. It removes all the unnecessary crap and leaves you with only the basics required by WP to run. That way you can build your WP theme much quicker/easier:

    Good luck...

    Thanks itrevor and aydoubleyou for the great advice. Taking it slowing is definitely something I need to do. I try to do things too fast and end up f#in$ it up.
