Well I can tell you from experience, that when I create a WP theme I first code it completely in HTML/CSS. After everything looks and functions like I want it to I then convert it to be used with WP. At the heart of it, any WP theme is a combo of HTML, CSS, JS, and PHP.

The thing to remember is there are a ton of CMS out there other than WP, there’s also site builders like Wix and SquareSpace (the latter of which I’m currently learning to add to my skill set) that can add to the freelance competition.

Mainly the driving points to learning something like WP or any other CMS is not only can it speed up your production and help with the heavy lifting, but you can also hand over a website that your client can update themselves if they want to.

You’re seeing a saturation of WP stuff because it’s easy for a developer and the client to use. And no matter what you’re doing for a freelance gig, at the end of the day it’s about the client. Satisfying their needs in the best possible way you can. And if they want a turn key website then you’re probably going to use some sort of CMS to do it. WP is just an excellent option.

That all being said, HTML/CSS and JS will always be involved. Wheither you’re building a website or an app or working with a CMS. It’s always going to be there in some way, so don’t worry about that.

Hello @asad44

WordPress developer here… I am always surprised when I see a post like yours. I do not mean this in any bad way, please do not be offended, it is just I often wonder what it is people believe WordPress developers actually do?

I do my work in html, css, bootstrap, javascript and jquery. And I use php rather than node or some other backend language. That’s it, plain and simple.

If you want to use your html, css, bootstrap, and javascript skillset, WordPress will allow you to fill your boots!

My experience as a WordPress developer is that people find a theme as a starting point, but then hire me to customize it. The pages I create are from scratch, and they typically look nothing like what a page in the starter theme looked like.
