Convert Existing HTML Site Design To A WordPress Theme In 10 Seconds
by Dazzlin' Donna
May 29, 2012

One of my most popular posts lately is my guide that shows you how to convert a static HTML site to WordPress. In that post, however, I note that it doesn?t convert the actual design of the site; it converts the content. You?ll need to start fresh with a new theme or convert the design yourself. This post is the answer to that problem.

How To Convert Your Existing HTML Site Design or Template To A WordPress Theme in 10 Seconds Flat ? For Free
There?s a new tool out there folks, and it works really well.

Does it really copy the design detail-for-detail? Nothing missing?

Also, that lady has some incredible articles. I couldn't find where to sign up for her email list though to get automatic blog updates? Can anyone else find it?
