In this article I will explain for the newb WordPress user how to manually install on their Mac computer. There are also several video tutorials online, but here is my text version. If you have any hiccups, just contact me!
It was a last minute thing to talk about custom theme development at Barcamp Tampa 2010 this year. The night before I had started on my slides, unsure of what to speak about. Obviously, I was going to speak about the WordPress themeing process, but I didn’t know how. Or where to start. I was nervous, but I felt like I needed to give back to the WordPress and tech community, since after all, Barcamp is free to attend with free food and free beer! Anyways, my slides are on slideshare and were also featured on the Slideshare design home page for like a week
Some of you visited my site in the past month and received a notification from either your browser, or your virus protection saying that my site was hosting malware. I thank you all for notifying me immediately of what you all were seeing on my site. Tearing through my website, I discovered that there was an admin user other than myself on my install! But it didn’t stop there, no. My entire grid was infected. Every WordPress install I had on my server, was infected with this attack by “johnnyA.”
