I am working as the web content manager for a non-profit organization in the area. For the past two months, I have been working with developers in India to create customized templates for the organization. They are in the process of creating the HTML/CSS templates based on their Photoshop mock-ups. The website will use five different templates (home page, content landing page, contact/form page, etc.) and will initially be about 15 pages total.
The original plan was to have the developers send us the HTML/CSS templates and have an organization member convert the templates into a WordPress theme. After dealing with this member for the past few months, both the Project Manager and I have realized that this guy is an idiot and not trustworthy, so now we are in a bind. The developers' contract does not include conversion (in fact, I'm not sure if they do that for any project), and finding someone else to take over this part is both out of budget and difficult due to the general attitude of this organization's members (they're not easy to work with).
I have done a little reading on WordPress Codex and found this site
to help me figure out how to get the conversion done. I'm not sure whether the process will become more clear once I have bought the hosting account and gotten the templates, but from looking at that one page, I am completely lost past step 5 or so.
Are there more comprehensive/simpler resources on converting HTML/CSS templates into WordPress themes, particularly with screenshots of where to upload/copy files? I have a good working knowledge of WordPress and am certainly willing to use trial and error to make everything work! I just need a clear and visual example to walk me through the process.
In case it matters, I will be doing this work on a Mac and will be installing the WordPress script on a Bluehost hosting account.
