An elegant, flexible WordPress theme

readme.txt
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.

  [Tarski]:            http://tarskitheme.com/
  [WordPress]:         http://wordpress.org/

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].

### 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.

Tarski relies on contributions from the community. The main areas of activity

writing plugins; and lastly, improving the theme itself.
