Creating themes based off WP Framework

Make it your own

When you create a new WordPress theme, you start off by personalizing it right? WP Framework is no different. Edit the details in style.css and change the folder name to something more of your liking. WP Framework was built with flexibility in mind and with the intent that you’ll want to make these kinds of personalizations.

Roll your own HTML structure

WP Framework comes prepackaged as a two column layout. If the default HTML structure doesn’t suit the needs for your particular project, or you prefer an alternative format, please don’t hesitate to make it different. WP Framework doesn’t force you to use the HTML structure it comes with. What WP Framework does do is provide you with convenience template tags to use around your templates. You’ll see examples of those used around the default template files.

Convention over configuration

WP Framework comes with an organized directory structure so you can easily find and figure out what files and folders do. In addition, WP Framework also provides a media/ directory that stores all the assets for your theme. CSS stylesheets go into the css/ folder, JavaScript files go into the js/ folder, and all your images go in the images/ directory. PHP files simply go into the media/ directory.

Using these conventions, WP Framework offers some sweet benefits:

  1. Convenient PHP constants that you can use to reference those directories in your template files.
  2. Ability to edit all your CSS, JavaScript, and PHP files through the WordPress theme editor.
  3. Future proof your customizations during upgrades.
