Hi Folks -

Has anyone tried to convert a WordPress or Joomla theme to work with Magento? 
Is this something that is feasible from a non-PHP guru?

With 1,000’s of already done themes one would think you could simply download / install the theme on a Magento install.

Thoughts?

Hey,

As soon as Magento gets the production version out you’ll see a truckload of themes
so from April fools day onward look out for em.

I probably convert some of them, I know how but I need more docs (I can do it by making current theme look like that but it gets alot of time)

I would be interested in hiring someone to match my Joomla 1.0.15 Vintage template by Joomlashack so I can use Magento.. Please PM me if interested in doing this work as I sometimes do not receive email notifications of replies to the forum threads here..

Hmm, I don’t fully understand what I’m seeing on your site. Where is Magento on there?

I used Aqua Vaccinium by Ryan Hellyer - http://ryanhellyer.net/2008/02/23/aqua-vaccinium-wordpress-theme

My client has now moved away from this theme (read as “changes their mind lots") but it was quite easy to do with a bit of css knowledge.
