Step 2: Now we have to create a custom WordPress theme to convert all the Figma designs into a WordPress site. It is because a WordPress theme is what controls how your website appears and functions.

A typical WordPress theme file consists of PHP code, JavaScript files, and CSS stylesheet files.

  • Make a new folder in WordPress for your theme in the wp-content/themes directory and name it of your choice. (You can access these files, either through Cpanel, WordPress Editor, or FTP clients) Or check out our dedicated blog on ” How to install WordPress theme?

If you are a WPOven user you can access the WordPress file by following this tutorial. “New File Manager to easily manage your site’s files and folders.

Now, add files like index.php, header.php, footer.php, and functions.php to it. (Leave these files blank for now). Also, add the style.css file to set up your theme’s CSS stylesheet in the same folder.

(This particular style.css file is responsible for displaying all the colors, fonts, borders, margins, and other visual elements of the website.)

Now add the following header comment to your style.css file as given below:


Theme Name: Example WordPress Theme
Author: WPOVen
Description: This code converts Figma design to WordPress.
Version: 1.0
License: GNU General Public License v2 or later
License URI:


Here, You have to provide the Theme Name of your custom WordPress theme and Your author. This will help WordPress to identify your custom theme.

Also do not forget to add an image for your WordPress theme, so that it can easily be recognizable in the WordPress directory, just like a YouTube thumbnail.

Preferable size should be 800×600 pixels and should be in PNG format. Name anything your choice and add it to the theme folder.

Step 3: Now we have to add all your exported Figma assets within your customized theme folder.

Tip: If your site is complex it is better to manage all your assets in a specific subfolder, just like we have shown in the picture below:

Step 4: To make your WordPress theme completely functional, you need to add HTML, CSS, and JavaScript to the theme files.

Let us see how you can do this,

First, you have to convert your Figma mockups into code, and for that, you will be required to have a code editor tool.

Begin with setting up an HTML structure with elements like headers, footers, navigation bars, and sections. Add your codes to the PHP files (index.php, header.php, and footer.php).

Now Use, CSS to style your HTML elements. Add your styles in the ‘style.css’ file, setting colors, fonts, sizes, and other design aspects.

  • For better styling, you can use:
    • CSS preprocessors like SASS or LESS
    • Frameworks like Bootstrap or Tailwind
    • A WordPress starter theme
  • For complex designs, you don’t need to put all your CSS into a single file, but in a more organized way. You can add separate CSS files for different parts in the assets folder so that it becomes easy for you to manage and troubleshoot in the future.

At last, for Javascript, figure out the elements that need to be interactive such as dropdown menus, sliders, etc.)

Consider using jQuery to make it easier tasks like AJAX calls and DOM Manipulation and properly load your CSS (stylesheets) and JavaScript files (scripts) into your WordPress theme using the functions.php file.

Step 5: Now here comes the testing part, after successfully going through all the above steps, save your files and check whether everything works well. But before that, we have to Activate the plugin.

To activate the plugin, go to your WordPress dashboard> Appearance> themes. Your custom theme will start appearing with the image that you uploaded earlier in the theme folder. Click on it to activate and viola your WordPress site is ready for testing.

Here are some of the testing suggestions you can follow:

  • Check how your site looks and works in different browsers and screen sizes.
  • Use tools to optimize your images for faster loading.
  • Implement caching to speed up your site.
  • Make a backup of your site before making it live.


Converting from Figma to WordPress is not as easy as it seems, depending on the complexity of the website. The more complex the design, the more complex the process you have to follow. We have tried to cover all the options for all types of users.

Manually doing it might give you more control, but it will consume a lot of your time and effort. However, you can utilize plugins to speed up the conversion process, but you might still need to make certain changes to get better results.

It is completely up to your preference and ease of understanding which method you choose.
