I am new to magento and i am trying to create a new theme just to get a grasp of how it works...to be honest im reading the guides and im not any brighter.

Would anyone be kind enough to a create simple nothing special theme, then show exactly a step-by-step guide on how they did it from start to finish...showing what new phtml files have been created, hows they coded it, how to link it to the css and the images.

A true dummy guide....

thanks in advance smile

It’s not that simple, you need to understand how css works and how to write it.

you should read this guide and watch the screencasts…

unfortunately...the skinning system of Magento isn’t the easy thing to get used to so it may take a bit of time to get your design how you want it.
