Create your Underscores based theme
What is Underscores?
Hi. I'm a starter theme called _s, or underscores, if you like. I'm a theme meant for hacking so don't use me as a Parent Theme. Instead try turning me into the next, most awesome, WordPress theme out there. That's what I'm here for.
My ultra-minimal CSS might make me look like theme tartare but that means less stuff to get in your way when you're designing your awesome theme. Here are some of the other more interesting things you'll find here ...
- A just right amount of lean, well-commented, modern, HTML5 templates.
- A helpful 404 template.
- A optional sample custom header implementation in
- Custom template tags in
inc/template-tags.phpthat keep your templates clean and neat and prevent code duplication.
- Some small tweaks in
/inc/extras.phpthat can improve your theming experience.
- Keyboard navigation for image attachment templates, in
- A script at
js/small-menu.jsthat makes your menu a toggled dropdown on small screens (like your phone), ready for CSS artistry.
- 5 sample CSS layouts in
/layouts: Two sidebars on the left, two sidebars on the right, a sidebar on either side of your content, and two-column layouts with sidebars on either side.
- Smartly organized starter CSS in
style.cssthat will help you to quickly get your design off the ground.
- The GPL license in license.txt. Use it to make something cool.
