Visual Anatomy of a WP 1.5 Theme

While spending some time in the WordPress support forum I realized that for most new users it’s quite difficult to grasp the theme/template system used in this version. Although there are a lot of excellent articles in the Codex it occurred to me that part of the population might need a visual representation of how the templates work together.

Being myself very visual when it comes to memorize and/or build a mental picture of an abstract thing, I decided to try to “translate” the original anatomy of a theme by Ryan Boren into a visual help (or whatever it should be called).

It’s not a piece of art, just a quick, dirty code (lots of tables – do not comment on that, I’ll delete :), but hopefully it will help some folks who try to learn how WP works.
Here is the link to the Visual Anatomy.
