Though it started out as a blogging platform, WordPress can easily be used as a full-scale content management system (CMS). WordPress is the most popular CMS choice for individuals throughout the world, and for good reason. It is by far the most user-friendly system for updating and managing content; it comes with good search engine optimization right out of the box; and the WordPress community is vast meaning good extensions are available and great support. Anyways, the purpose of this article isn’t to convince about the greatness of WordPress, but rather to provide some helpful insight into one aspect of WordPress development–theme development.
We have one word for you: Bones. Bones is the name of a WordPress starter theme especially made for developers. It is not a framework, but rather a “rock solid foundation” that developers can use to quickly and efficiently build their own themes. It is based on the HTML5 Boilerplate.
