hi all i have a few questions on wordpress ^o^

hi everybody, i have an question to ask for solution. I have a html + css pages developed, just like usual practice , i separate it into header.php, footer.php,sidebar.php , index.php

  • First i don't know what i can do if the header , footer or even sidebar need custom content amendment , then what should i do in order to make the content in those header ...footer...can be amend.

*Secondly , i am ambiguous on the page developed. for example , if a page is call contact then i usually call it contact.php for wordpress site, but is it correct? Indeed is it another way to name the page?

*third , how can i make a wordpress page 's content can be custom content (that means can be amend by people)

*last , how i can set the relative path for my js file, since it is located in my wp-content , so i need to move it to the same folder level in order to make the js script work.

Thank you for all your help

Hi Priscilla,

Sorry a little confused; are you building HTML/CSS pages, PHP pages, or a Wordpress website?

If you are building a Wordpress website and would like to edit content in the Header, Footer includes, you can either create Widget areas to edit text or add news posts etc, or, use a plugin to enter Custom Fields to make them editable.

You can name your page templates anything you want, so long as you have the code in the top of the file, to allow you to use that template in the Wordpress admin, e.g.

 * Template Name: Page of Books
 get_header(); ?>

As long as you include the following code in your Page template:

<?php the_content(); ?>

... then people can edit that page using the wordpress WYSIWYG.
