The NETTUTS site has posted the second part of their series looking at the creation of a custom WordPress template. This time they focus on expanding on the previous version, adding additional parts to the theme.
It's time for the good stuff now. We'll be adding the comments system, a sidebar with widgets and an archive for all the old posts. This will cover all that you need for a simple but well functioning WordPress theme, and hopefully you be able to apply this to all sorts of theming projects.
The give the code to create the sidebar (in their instance, an image from Flickr), handling the comments for each post and make the "archive" section to get to some of the older posts.
