Underscores (_s) + Easy Digital Downloads Starter Theme for WordPress

This theme is a styleless combination of the Underscores (_s) starter theme by Automattic and Easy Digital Downloads (EDD).

Every time I build a WordPress theme with _s and integrate it with EDD, I do a couple of hours of dirty work. No more. All the dirty work is done here in this starter theme.

Features

  • Page templates for default EDD pages as well as a members area template
  • Grid-ready store front template for digital downloads created in EDD.
  • Theme customizer options built to customize EDD output as well as regular blog settings
  • EDD-specific sidebar for download pages with download information at the top of the sidebar
  • Full _s CSS reset and basic starter styles in place
  • Full-width HTML structure built in instead of the page-width _s ships with - see "Structure" section of style.css to see the CSS and see the header.php and footer.php files to see the full-width HTML structure in place.
  • HTML layout CSS (content/sidebar) as well as and its corresponding responsive CSS already written to include responsive menu toggle
  • Font Awesome files already built in and ready to use <i> tags from Font Awesome with no additional work

Theme Instructions

If you know how to use _s, you know how to use this starter theme. The same is true if you know how to use your browser inspector. CSS is really all that's missing.

The theme uses the slug sdm throughout the files. Do a search and replace in every file to use your own theme slug. Change the theme name in the style.css file as well as the rtl.css file. In the functions.php file, be sure to change the definitions. They start with THEME_. You'll want something less generic.

In the languages directory, change the name of the .pot file to match your slug. And of course, name the theme folder whatever you'd like.

With that done, you're ready to activate the theme and write some CSS. It's that easy.

Bugs and Contributions

If you notice any mistakes, feel free to fork the repo and submit a pull request with your corrections. The same is true of any features you feel should be added or changes that can be made.

If you have a popular EDD extension that should probably be supported by default, let me know.

License

This theme, like WordPress, is licensed under the GPL. Do what you want with it. I seriously don't care.

I'm Sean. I created the Volatyl Framework for WordPress. I like to do most of my WordPress stuff on Build WordPress Yourself. I also write stuff on my personal site and SDavis Media. Follow me on the Twitter machine.

Meanwhile, tell me... is this theme useful to you? If so, consider buying me a box of "Tazo: Awake - English Breakfast Black Tea." I need ALL the energiez. Donate Black Tea
