    It's just so freaking convenient, especially with the availability of custom fields. PHP rocks! Not that I didn't know this beforehand but I'm actually starting to learn PHP for my own benefit.

    Another fan here. The best part of wordpress plugins and php is that you can see the source and modify

    I been teaching myself php also. I notice other languages are similar. I am wondering since they are all similar, is php the best way to go? Can JS be a better route? But i am on the same direction as you :)

    Agree,my first websites were hand coded , but with Wordpress or magento why would you bother when you can throw something up in one minute. Unless you are doing something very specific I would stay aware from coding from scratch.

    Actually I'm having more bugs and problems from WP (theme customising) than from my hand-coded html+php sites. More WP evolves, more it will become bug-pron and overly complicated for average user. Plugins and themes are open gates for hacker intrusion.

    You need to alter your css file in Appearance >>> Editor, if your theme doesn't allow you to do it in settings page.

    I always avoided code beyond the basic html, but why not. Downloading a few books right now, and will see what php really has to offer. I'm assuming I'll be using YouTube a decent amount as well. Thanks for the motivation.
