Join Joseph Lowery for an in-depth discussion in this video Updating page structure and the background, part of Dreamweaver CC and WordPress 3.8: Core Concepts.
…In this chapter, we're going to be working with the Child Theme setup in…the previous chapter in the lesson…appropriately named, Setting Up a Child Theme.…And we'll be doing that so our basic WordPress…page fits in with the design of our overall site.…We're going to be taking an outside-in approach, starting…with the page background and basic page structure.…When I'm working on a project like this, I always develop a comp in HTML first.…That comp will give us the precise CSS declarations we'll need to…replicate a design as well as clues to the required underlying structure.…

Author update on April 4, 2014:
WordPress 3.8.2 is now available from wordpress.org. The update focuses on security issues and should not impact this course in any way. A much bigger release, 3.9, is currently a release candidate and will likely go live later in April. I'm currently evaluating what impact v3.9 will have on this course.
