Wordpress - Any WYSIWYG theme editor???

P: n/a
Hello,

I would like to create my own theme(s) for a couple of my own blog
sites. I am hoping a few better themes could bring lot more readers.
So far, I have stayed with the default wordpress theme (blue title).

There are a lot of web sites I have seen that have very attractive
themes. I am not a programmer and do not like to edit the php files or
css files etc. My preference is to visually create the theme
(font,images,background colors etc) and upload to my blog site. Are
there any WYSIWYG Wordpress theme editors?

Any help you provide is appreciated.

Thank you in advance.

I doubt it. However you can design a page in e.g. dreamweaver and copy
bits like the sidebar code and posting code into it. But you have to
split it up again afterwards. Php is not very suitable to do in Wysiwyg
mode.
And I suggest you choose a theme that you like somewhat from the
wordpress theme gallery to get started with. You can always try to
adjust it then. Anything is better than that blue default theme ;-)

I think that comes nearest to Wordpress theme WYSIWYG.

There is actually, I wrote one earlier this month. Its called
ThemeDreamer and its an extension to Dreamweaver. It will allow you to
use Dreamweaver's Design View mode to click and drag html blocks of
that make up a wordpress theme visually. You can also manipulate CSS
styles, navigate code in Code View, link right into context sensitive
online documentation, etc. etc. If your using Dreamweaver with
WordPress and you're not using this extension, your only getting half
the picture! Unlock Dw's potential! Its the only WYISWYG editor for
WordPress theme files. Check out before/after pics here:
