Roots Theme

Roots is a starting WordPress theme made for developers that’s based on HTML5 Boilerplate, Starkers, and the most popular CSS frameworks.

Roots includes support for Blueprint CSS, 960 Grid System, 1140px Grid, Adapt.js, Less Framework, Foundation, and Bootstrap with the ability to set site-wide classes for the main content area and the sidebar. There's also the option to not use any CSS framework.

Quick start

  • Clone the git repo - git clone git://github.com/retlehs/roots.git - or download it
  • Read Theme Activation to understand everything that happens once you activate Roots

Features

  • HTML5 Boilerplate's markup, style, and .htaccess
  • Popular CSS frameworks included (with the option to use none)
  • Clean URLs (no more /wp-content/)
  • All static theme assets are rewritten to the website root (/css/, /img/, and /js/)
  • Cleaner HTML output of navigation menus
  • Root relative URLs
  • Posts use the hNews microformat
  • The gallery shortcode has been modified to use <figure> and <figcaption>
  • wp_head has been cleaned up along with the output of enqueued styles and scripts
  • Robots.txt optimized for SEO
  • Multilingual ready (English, Spanish, French, Italian, Dutch, Brazilian Portuguese, Macedonian, Finnish, Danish, and Turkish)
