(UPDATED) I created a screencast on how to turn any web template into a WordPress theme. I created the screencast for someone like me a few months back: interested to use an open source template for my blog and yet not knowing how to turn it into a theme.
This is the first take because, as you may see, it needs a lot of improvements. The screencast covered how I turned this open source web design into this WordPress theme. I’d appreciate comments on this as I would either be rendering the screencast again from the raw frames capture I saved elsewhere or throwing away the thousands of captured frames and doing the screencast all over again.
For one, I deleted literally a footage of frames from it and realized it only after rendering the whole thing. The frames are still saved in my office PC and I’ll try to see what I can salvage from it. What’s egging me on to redo the entire thing is that I ran out of virtual memory on the last part of the screencast–the part when I activated the theme, tweaked it and fixed errors. Darn, I need 1GB of RAM.
UPDATE: I’ve fixed this screencast up a bit but I still have to go over the raw frames capture I stored elsewhere. Again, I’d appreciate feedback on this as I am weighing redoing the entire thing or just tweaking it. I am writing a post to go with this screencast.
