Sometimes you need a helping hand to get a custom WordPress theme project started. You could grab a “starter theme” like Underscores by Automattic or you could take advantage of the responsive toolkit Bootstrap by using the UnderStrap theme by Holger. In this video, I'll go back to the beginning and briefly discuss the bare minimum parts that make up a WordPress theme. Then I'll cover the Underscores and UnderStrap themes. I'll also demonstrate how to speed up your theme development efforts using the Bootstrap documentation. Finally, I'll provide some examples that take Bootstrap even further into a more custom theme.
Special thanks to my friend, Kevin Lamping, for his assistance with the Zoom call and website development challenge. Be sure to check out his great videos about web app testing with WebdriverIO and other testing environments.
