Hi. I'm a starter theme called _s, or underscores, if you like. I'm a theme meant for hacking so don't use me as a Parent Theme. Instead try turning me into the next, most awesome, WordPress theme out there. That's what I'm here for.

* A sample custom header implementation in inc/custom-header.php that can be activated by uncommenting one line in functions.php and adding the code snippet found the comments of inc/custom-header.php to your header.php template.
* Custom template tags in inc/template-tags that keep your templates clean and neat and prevent code duplication

+=== Getting Started ===
+The first thing you want to do is copy the _s directory and change the name to something else. Like, say, megatherium. Then you'll need to do a three-step find and replace on the name in all the templates.
+1. Search for _s inside single quotations to capture the text domain.
+2. Search for _s_ for to capture all the function names
+3. Search for _s with a space before it to replace all the occurrences of it in comments. (You’d replace this with the capitalized version of your theme name.)
+or …
+Search for:'_s'
+Replace with:'megatherium'
+Search for:_s_
+Replace with:megatherium_
+Search for: _s
+Replace with: Megatherium
+Then, update the stylesheet header in style.css and the links in footer.php with your own information. Next, update or delete this readme.
+You're ready to go! The next step is easy to say but hard to do: make an awesome WordPress theme. :)
+Good luck!
