    I found a wordpress tutorial that is very well put.... doesn't look difficult.

    However, I'm about to start my journey to IM.... and I need to know how to make websites. I plan to learn some HTML and other programs... however, I know it's hard... so I want to learn WordPress.

    Anyhow, How hard is it to create a custom WordPress theme or template?

    Could I build a website business based on WordPress????

    Creating a custom theme from scratch will be way easier with basic HTML/CSS and bootstraps.

    However,you may only want to get wordpress, get a good looking theme and tweak it a little bit to fits your need, it's way more easy.

    Wordpress is teh way to go if you wanna build website on a large scale. It's just an amazing CMS. Possibilities are endless.

    Wordpress is crazy easy, just don't get overwhelmed when you see the dashboard ... half that stuff you probably won't touch, at least not right away.

    You won't have to need much experience making a theme because there are many mant nice themes to choose from. Check out the download section here BHW there are a lot of nice ones.

    First you need to learn HTML and CSS. Then go with PHP. After you have decent knowledge with these 3, go to WP.

    You don't need that much PHP if you don't want to create some advanced features like theme's control panel etc.

    HTML and CSS are mandatory, you can't do anything without them.

    A good first exercise would be to download a well known free theme such as something from WooThemes (they have legitimate free ones) and practice via creating a child theme.

    Thus you can start using a theme template that's already created, but practice your CSS and HTML edits in the child theme files. It's a good way to isolate what does what.

    Also, firebug on Firefox is basically mandatory.

    You can buy a premium theme if trouble with a custom theme. Do not waste your time. You only succeed if you are successful marketing techniques

    You can setup Wordpress with Softaculous auto installer quite simply in under 7 minutes by typing in everything semi-automatically.

    I learned the harder style by using semi-manual methods such as Swiftly installing it via the php files and doing it that way.

    Try both so you get a better understand the Stealth involved with the Blackhat Reverse Engineer mindset of this lifestyle.

    Just buy a nice theme and install some simple plugins to fit your needs. Take some time to trial and error along the way but that's how we all learn.
