Tarski ====== [Tarski] is an elegant, flexible [WordPress] theme developed by [Benedict Eastaugh]. As a WordPress extension it is licensed under the GPL; please consult the COPYRIGHT file that should have been provided with this README for more details. This version of Tarski requires **WordPress 3.2**, but it works fine with **WordPress 3.3** too. [Tarski]: http://tarskitheme.com/ [WordPress]: http://wordpress.org/ [Benedict Eastaugh]: http://extralogical.net/ Installing ---------- Tarski is installed like any other WordPress theme: upload the files to the `wp-content/themes` directory of your WordPress installation, and activate it from the Appearance page in your WordPress admin panel. Customising ----------- Tarski provides its own options page, allowing for the easy customisation of a number of aspects of the theme. Just go to the Tarski options page in the Appearance section of your WordPress admin panel and adjust the settings. Extending --------- Apart from the options which Tarski supports two basic extension mechanisms: plugins and child themes. Both of these are provided by WordPress, but Tarski improves upon them in several ways, firstly by providing a larger repertoire of API hooks which plugins can use, and secondly by allowing users to select alternate styles and header images from child themes as well as Tarski itself. ### Child themes Tarski's extensive API and large library of utility functions, allied to the customisability provided by its options page, makes it an excellent base for building WordPress [child themes]. [child themes]: http://codex.wordpress.org/Theme_Development ### Writing plugins Tarski's theme hooks [API] is an extension of the basic WordPress hooks API, and allows for major modifications to be made to almost every aspect of the theme's functionality. [Writing Plugins] explains the process of creating a plugin that modifies some aspect of Tarski, while the [Hooks Reference] is a complete API reference. A library of [example plugins] rounds out the documentation with example code. [API]: http://tarskitheme.com/help/hooks/ [Writing Plugins]: http://tarskitheme.com/help/hooks/plugins/ [Hooks Reference]: http://tarskitheme.com/help/hooks/reference/ [example plugins]: http://tarskitheme.com/help/hooks/example-plugins/ Contributing ------------ Tarski relies on contributions from the community. The main areas of activity are: reporting bugs; creating and updating translations; building child themes; writing plugins; and lastly, improving the theme itself. ### Reporting bugs Bugs should be reported on the Tarski [issue tracker]. Security issues should be reported directly to [Benedict]. [issue tracker]: http://github.com/beastaugh/tarski/issues [Benedict]: mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org ### Translations There are a large number of translations already available for Tarski, but new and updated localisation files are always welcome. Please see the [localisation page] for more details.
