    That’s a lot of options for word press themes Starter themes sound more complex than the others but also really interesting

      Starter themes are supposedly easier than building your own custom themes. It’s kind of like with Emmet in a way (if you remember my Emmet tutorial LOL). Starter themes already have the core coding stuff already available for you. You just need to add your own stuff (like your HTML and CSS) in them, and then add some templates that you can use that’s also not included.

      The most popular starter theme so far is Underscores ( You just go to their website, give your new theme a name, choose your options if you need to, and then it’ll generate you a zip file of your theme. Then from there, you can look in the generated theme, make your code stuff in them wherever needed and then just upload and activate it as any standard WordPress theme that has your name in it. Because starter themes are meant to be “hackable” by users and developers, credit will go to you rather than the people who built the starter theme in the first place.

      Hope this makes more sense. 🙂

          No problem. Have fun with it! There are also other starter themes, with a few of them already supported by CSS frameworks like Bootstrap and Foundation, but still very basic. You still have to do all your HTML/CSS designing by yourself to make the theme more like it’s really yours. 😀

    I’m going to probably start with a child theme or starter theme to work on mine and build up from there. I can’t remember the framework I used before for my old blog but it was so EASY to edit and work with! I’ll have to google that

      Looking forward to your interweb presence comeback! One of my goals too is to sell child themes specifically for a particular framework. There’s actually one free framework that I can create child themes and then reconvert them to parent themes and actually sell them for hefty prices, but I need to squeeze some time to learn how to use it. ☺
