An accessibility-ready starter WordPress theme employing The Fluid Project's UIO.
UIOFive (formally FSSFive) is a WorPress starter theme based on
_s -- or
underscores. It's an accessiblity-ready WordPress blogging theme from which to start developing your new theme from. Plus it makes use of components of The Fluid Project's Infusion framework, User Interface Options (UIOptions) specifically.
Why the rebranding? Well, as of the release of Infusion 1.5, Fluid Skinning System (FSS) has been depreciated from Infusion. "There are no CSS Framework requirements for working with Infusion. Infusion's strategy going forward will be to use custom CSS for component specific styling."
That said, technically, I'm not responsible for too much of what this theme is. I essentially, and with what is more than likely an element of irresponsibly (but with more responsibility than previous iterations of this theme), stitched it together from contributions of other people who are much smarter than I. However, I accept complete responsibility for any sloppiness I caused, and I'd love the opportunity to correct any mistakes should you find any. Please, let me know.
As of this moment, UIOFive is not equipped with Infusion or UIOptions -- inclusion of both are on a very short list of things I must do first, rather obviously. And what follows was largely grabbed directly from the underscores README on its Github repository:
- Just right amount of lean, well-commented, modern, HTML5 templates.
- A helpful 404 template.
- A sample custom header implementation in
inc/custom-header.phpthat can be activated by uncommenting one line in
functions.phpand adding the code snippet found in the comments of
- Custom template tags in
inc/template-tags.phpthat keep your templates clean and neat and prevent code duplication.
- Some small tweaks in
inc/extras.phpthat can improve your theming experience.
- A script at
js/libs/navigation.js, which is includeed in the minified
js/build/global.min.jsscript, that makes your menu a toggled dropdown on small screens (like your phone), ready for CSS artistry. The global script is enqueued in
- 2 sample CSS layouts in
layouts/for a sidebar on either side of your content.
- The option to "_sassify" was provided in the "Advanced Options" when initially generating the original underscores theme, meaning UIOFive is Sass capable, thereby providing smartly organized modules of styles. You'll find all the raw Sass files in the
sassdirectory, they will help you to quickly get your design off the ground.
