    I already know html and css. I would really like to be able to edit stuff in WordPress themes, like removing bloat (functions I don’t need) on a theme to make my site load faster, or copy/pasting functions I see elsewhere that I want to add into my own theme. I was thinking instead of filling my site with 25+ plugins to get the custom functionality I like, I could just start with my favorite theme’s code and copy/paste the functions of plugins that I like and edit it straight into my own theme. Take the good stuff, and leave out all the bloat. Is this a decent development strategy or will it go horrible wrong for some reason I can’t imagine? Should I take a course on learning PHP from scratch, or just learn a few basic things that are WordPress-specific? – by hq overview NakedAndBehindYou – –
