A WordPress starter theme built off _s and the JSON REST API Backbone client.
Hi. I'm a starter theme called
_s_backbonefor 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:
inc/custom-header.phpthat can be activated by uncommenting one line in
functions.phpand adding the code snippet found in the comments of
inc/template-tags.phpthat keep your templates clean and neat and prevent code duplication.
inc/extras.phpthat can improve your theming experience.
js/navigation.jsthat makes your menu a toggled dropdown on small screens (like your phone), ready for CSS artistry. It's enqueued in
layouts/for a sidebar on either side of your content.
style.cssthat will help you to quickly get your design off the ground.
_s_backbonefrom GitHub. The first thing you want to do is copy the
_s_backbonedirectory 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.
'_s_backbone'(inside single quotations) to capture the text domain.
_s_backbone_to capture all the function names.
Text Domain: _s_backbonein style.css.
sbackbone(with a space before it) to capture DocBlocks.
_s_backbone-to capture prefixed handles.
'_s_backbone'and replace with:
_s_backbone_and replace with:
Text Domain: _s_backboneand replace with:
Text Domain: megatheriumin style.css.
sbackboneand replace with:
_s_backbone-and replace with:
Then, update the stylesheet header in
style.cssand the links in
footer.phpwith 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. :)
