Welcome to my latest Programming Adventure!
At this phase of the adventure, I’ve found a BootStrap theme that I like, but I need to modify it to suit my purposes.

When All Else Fails – BootStrap
Let’s just say that I didn’t have any success when putting my design into HTML and CSS. Maybe it’s because I’m not that good yet. Either way, it wasn’t working out for me, so I knew that I had to go somewhere else for help. And where do you think I went next?

Now that the Hydrogen Theme has been organized and customized with content, I started on the fourth phase in this Programming Adventure: setting up the Knowledge Base theme in WordPress!
Until then, Happy Modifying!
