There are some great wordpress themes out there, but some times you just want a static site. I got to thinking, how could I go about taking a wordpress theme and turning into a template, let me know if this sounds correct or if I'm missing something 1.) Dowload the theme. 2.) View the theme on a site as normal, view the source code and copy it. 3.) Edit any css/js files for customizations if you want 4.) Assuming the site has alot of pages, you still would want to use php includes. So open the source you saved and take out all the jibber jabber and add your includes or html/what have you. And if the template has graphics make sure they are linking to where you are hosting them, same with ccs/js files. 5.) Tada?
