When starting a new WordPress theme design, I like to use a blank theme as the base to which I build upon so I do not have to create every theme from a blank page, again and again. I’ve been using a simple “blank” theme called Naked but it is way too stripped down. There is a lot of work I need to do to get it to a point where all the things are in the right places. Doing that slows me down and I’ve been meaning to clean it up and get it closer to where there is less of that kind of work to do on it.
Here is GloBare WordPress Theme. It is pretty bare but it is ready for battle. It is perfect to get in there and start building a custom theme on. Enjoy.
