sbackbone WordPress Starter Theme Dockunit Status

Hi. I'm a starter theme called

_s_backbone
for WordPress based off _s and the JSON REST API Backbone client. I'm very similar to my cousin _s. Really, the only difference between us is that all my loops have infinite scroll built in using a "more" button. Also, I don' support post formats like _s.

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 sample custom header implementation in
    inc/custom-header.php
    that can be activated by uncommenting one line in
    functions.php
    and adding the code snippet found in the comments of
    inc/custom-header.php
    to your
    header.php
    template.
  • Custom template tags in
    inc/template-tags.php
    that keep your templates clean and neat and prevent code duplication.
  • Some small tweaks in
    inc/extras.php
    that can improve your theming experience.
  • A script at
    js/navigation.js
    that makes your menu a toggled dropdown on small screens (like your phone), ready for CSS artistry. It's enqueued in
    functions.php
    .
  • 2 sample CSS layouts in
    layouts/
    for a sidebar on either side of your content.
  • Smartly organized starter CSS in
    style.css
    that will help you to quickly get your design off the ground.
  • Licensed under GPLv2 or later like _s. :) Use it to make something cool.

Getting Started

Download

_s_backbone
from GitHub. The first thing you want to do is copy the
_s_backbone
directory and change the name to something else (like, say,
megatherium
), and then you'll need to do a five-step find and replace on the name in all the templates.
  1. Search for
    '_s_backbone'
    (inside single quotations) to capture the text domain.
  2. Search for
    _s_backbone_
    to capture all the function names.
  3. Search for
    Text Domain: _s_backbone
    in style.css.
  4. Search for  sbackbone (with a space before it) to capture DocBlocks.
  5. Search for
    _s_backbone-
    to capture prefixed handles.

OR

  • Search for:
    '_s_backbone'
    and replace with:
    'megatherium'
  • Search for:
    _s_backbone_
    and replace with:
    megatherium_
  • Search for:
    Text Domain: _s_backbone
    and replace with:
    Text Domain: megatherium
    in style.css.
  • Search for:  sbackbone and replace with:  Megatherium
  • Search for:
    _s_backbone-
    and replace with:
    megatherium-

Then, update the stylesheet header in

style.css
and the links in
footer.php
with your own information. Next, update or delete this readme.

Now you're ready to go! The next step is easy to say, but harder to do: make an awesome WordPress theme. :)

Good luck!
