Turning your current template into a theme

You may think that migrating to WordPress means that you will also have to give up your current website design. This, however, doesn't have to be the case. If you're happy with the way your website looks now, then it's entirely possible to continue using your current design. To do this, you will need to convert your static HTML/CSS template into a WordPress theme.

Your static website may have been designed so long ago that it was created with a deprecated version of HTML or it may not include a stylesheet (CSS). If that's the case then you should first update your design, so that it's compliant with the latest web standards. This will make the process of converting your template much easier and will allow you to create the best theme possible. After your update is complete, you can then proceed with converting your template into a theme.
