Using Skeleton (http://www.getskeleton.com), I managed to come up with a “minimized” WordPress theme.
What is Skeleton?
Skeleton is a small collection of CSS & JS files that can help you rapidly develop sites that look beautiful at any size, be it a 17″ laptop screen or an iPhone. More here…
- Design a layout (Photoshop, etc.). You can use the template found in /templates or download it from http://getskeleton.com/#download
- Convert the layout into HTML
- Convert the HTML file into a WordPress theme
This theme will come in handy in Step 3. For example, you define the grid layout, columns, text colors, fonts, spacing, etc. yourself.
* Since most of the WordPress theme I created have a horizontal navigation bar, I have included the CSS for #access in style.css
* Also added the image CSS (align right, left, etc) by default.
* This also contains the default CSS for Skeleton.
* When adding images, do not set a specific image size. You can however use percentage.
You can download the theme here: https://github.com/wenbert/Ekini-WP-Skeleton.
