I am looking into creating my first ever WordPress theme. I want to move my current look and feel that I have created via html / css into WordPress.
What I would like, is to have a list of categories on my home page.
Then clicking on one of these categories will bring up a page which will display a list of posts on it with some description of the posts.
Then if you click on a single post in this page it will load up a single page with a single post displayed on to it. (the full description will be displayed here)
I'm not good at PHP as I mainly know HTML and CSS so if someone can guide me through how to do this or even point me in the direction of a related theme I would appreciate it.
an idea of what I want, looks like this. This one is my current site created in HTML/CSS.
