Bootstrap Studio · any HTML editor to create custom WordPress themes
Any website builder or design tool that can export HTML code can be used to create WordPress themes with Pinegrow Theme Converter.
You can even code the HTML by hand.
Please note that Pinegrow Theme Converter can’t be used to edit HTML and CSS. It can only create WordPress themes.
* You can use Theme Converter with Pinegrow Web Editor as well. But it might be more convenient to use Pinegrow Web Editor with its integrated WordPress builder. See FAQ for more.
Pinegrow Theme Converter comes with a set of Smart actions, that are both powerful and easy to use, including:
Smart actions adjust the WordPress output to fit into your custom HTML structure and styling - not the other way around.
If you export the theme to your local WordPress installation you can test it right away.
To update the WordPress theme, just export the HTML from your tool and re-run the instant theme conversion in Pinegrow Theme Converter. No need to add Smart actions again.
Pinegrow Theme Converter stores Smart actions in a separate file - not in your HTML files - and knows how to add them back whenever the HTML changes.
You get to decide how the theme will work.
You get to define the perfect information architecture for your site, including using custom post types, post fields, relationships, queries, taxonomies, customizer fields and more.
Here’s the deal - you do the interesting, creative parts of theme development and Pinegrow will take of the boring, repetitive tasks.
You get to do all of that without having to know anything about WordPress functions and PHP code.
And even if you are a seasoned WordPress developer, there’s no good reason to keep writing the WordPress PHP code by hand. Pinegrow can do that for you, and you have the complete freedom to use or customize the generated code however you like.
Creating custom WordPress themes has never been easier - or more fun.

Why do I have to tell Pinegrow how to export the theme? Can’t I just press a button instead?
Why would you want to skip the fun parts of creating a theme?
Pinegrow Theme Converter is designed to give you full freedom and control over your WordPress theme. Having a magic button would take this freedom away from you.
The main part of creating a theme is coming up with a proper information architecture: defining post types, their relationships, custom fields and so on.
That takes some consideration. Every project has different requirements. There is no single-click solution.
Should I use Pinegrow Theme Converter or Pinegrow Web Editor?
For those that don’t know us, our flagship product is Pinegrow Web Editor, a fully featured HTML and CSS editor that comes with WordPress converter integrated right into the editor.
You should use Pinegrow Web Editor with WordPress theme builder if you do most of HTML and CSS editing with Pinegrow, possibly in combination with code editor like Atom or VS Code.
But if you want to use other website builders - especially those that export the HTML code - then Pinegrow Theme Converter is the perfect solution for you.
Do I need to run any special WordPress plugins?
No. Pinegrow exports standard WordPress PHP theme files that don’t require any special plugins.
Of course, you can use any WordPress plugin with the theme.
That said, if you use Relationships between different post types (for example, Projects have assigned Team members who work on them) we recommend using the free version of Advanced Custom Fields plugin for user-friendly managing of these fields.
What if Smart actions are not enough for me?
Most smart actions can be unrolled into one or more of 200+ regular WordPress actions and further customized.
If event that is not enough, it is possible to include custom PHP code in the templates and in functions.php.
All our web development applications work with your local projects and work well together with your other tools.
