How to make a custom WordPress theme from scratch

9 hour tutorial on WordPress, eCommerce and more, building a complete custom theme website! This is my biggest tutorial yet. I cover WordPress installation, developing a homepage, styling with SCSS, internal pages and blogs, products, etc.

We create a WordPress theme from scratch by building it from a basic design. The whole process from installing Wordpress to setting up a theme template and getting it up and running will be covered. This also has woocommerce and eCommerce aspects which I will also cover while we build the HTML, CSS and JS.
