We are a group of 4 who is making a website for a school project. One of the criterias was that we had to script our own theme from scratch. Since we had no experience or knowledge of scripting we followed tutorials we found. The theme kind of works but we are missing most of the basic wordpress functions. We have tried to add the functions.php to our theme, because we did not have it, but we either didn't get any changes or the website crashed.
We can't find a way to make this work and we would love to get some help.
