All about you should know to convert HTML to WordPress

WordPress has always been on the top of the list when anyone wants to choose the best web development platform.

HTML conversion to WordPress is the best dynamic solution

We think you must have heard a lot about WordPress. Probably that is the reason why are you reading this blog post. Right? Getting started with the current process of conversion of HTML to WordPress without any additional problems is very necessary. You can change the static HTML website into a dynamic attractive and great WordPress website in many ways. But we will talk about the simplest and easiest way among the many methods available.

Editable WordPress child Theme: # 1 Method of HTML to WordPress conversion :

By the way, what is a child theme?

In WordPress, the theme consists of two parts: one is the main part i.e. the parent theme and the other one is sub-theme i.e. the child theme. Basically, this means providing an instrument that will change the WordPress website without any risk. Since this is a child theme, the theme itself does not exist alone. It is just a medium to make changes to the website.

1. Choose an appropriate WordPress theme

First of all, you have to choose the theme of your site wisely. Make sure that it is not completely opposite to your old HTML website, because it creates a problem for you in the future. So please choose a similar enough WordPress site theme. You will need to check the WordPress theme directory and set up a website.

2. New folder Creation.

A new folder is what you need now. All files must be placed here, even if it is associated with the child theme. The organization is the key to successful folder creation in this step of HTML to WordPress conversion here.

3. CSS Customization

You still need a .CSS file because you will now have to configure a theme in the child theme for the parent theme. It has less code and has a slight header difference than the stylesheet folder above.

/*
Theme Name: Twenty Fifteen Child
Theme URI: http://example.com/twenty-fifteen-child/
Description: Twenty Fifteen Child Theme
Author: John Doe
Author URI: http://example.com
Template: twentyfifteen
Version: 1.0.0
License: GNU General Public License v2 or later
License URI: http://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl-2.0.html
Tags: light, dark, two-columns, right-sidebar, responsive-layout, accessibility-ready
Text Domain: twenty-fifteen-child
*/

Please include the name of the parent theme at this point. This is important because if the name is ignored in this step of the HTML to WordPress conversion process, the child theme will not work. This must be done with the Template tag.

4. Create the functions.php and stylesheet

After you have altered the above code, you must edit the required parent theme. Creating a theme is easy, but what kind of conversion process is useful if the stylesheet is not ready?
Maintaining parent.php style and functions.php plays an important role in this:

<?php
function child_theme_enqueue_styles() {
$parent_style = ‘parent-style’;
wp_enqueue_style( $parent_style, get_template_directory_uri() . ‘/style.css’ );
wp_enqueue_style( ‘child-style’,
get_stylesheet_directory_uri() . ‘/style.css’,
array( $parent_style ),
wp_get_theme()->get(‘Version’)
);
}
add_action( ‘wp_enqueue_scripts’, ‘child_theme_enqueue_styles’ );

Once you’ve completed the above steps to convert HTML to WordPress, you need to activate the footer code when viewing content on the website. Then adjust the design and download the theme for the whole new website.

Conclusion

Although it may seem difficult from the start, it is of course easy to do so after you have completed HTML to WordPress website conversion by using all of the above steps.
