    @phillmadz This was made over a year ago, and the site that I was linking to has been taken offline. The style.css can be found in my later tutorials.

    A PHP file is NOT “just HTML with PHP code added.” The output of a PHP script can contain HTML, but PHP has little to do with HTML otherwise.

    @phillmadz I had the same problem.

    I fixed it to change the Style.css tot style.css without the Capital S. Then it worked for me 🙂

    Helpful for starters, thanks. I usually like taking a freebie theme and bending it to my will…now with this tutorial anything is possible.

    I am new to wordpress so bear with me. What i want to know is that is this theme installable? i.e. can this be applied like the default (twentyten & twentyeleven) themes??
