Baesick - Bootstrap/Skeleton WordPress Theme

This is a responsive, customizable Bootstrap-based WordPress starter theme forked from wycks' WP-Skeleton-Theme, which itself is based on Skeleton.


  • Very Easy to customise.
  • Responsive Media Query Layout
  • Fairly small footprint: Entire theme is roughly 5.5 MB
  • Fair load query, about 25-30 WordPress queries made to the DB by default.
  • Bundled with full 960 based CSS Responsive Grid
  • Bootstrap, jQuery, and Font Awesome support, which can be easily removed from header.php
  • Easily customizable SCSS variables in base-styles.scss file.
  • Icon support for mobile and web
  • IE HTML5shim support

Default 4 layouts:

  • Base 960 Grid 960px
  • Tablet (Portrait) 768px
  • Mobile (Portrait) 320px
  • Mobile (Landscape) 480px

What's included:

WordPress Menu support ( Drag & Drop)

  • The menu floats right on the large sizes, then floats left on mobile.

Widget Support

  • By default it has a widgitized sidebar and footer.

Comment, Full Width Page, Author, Search, Hero, Call-to-Action, Top Bar, 404 --> Templates

Some basic template tags for Site Title, Tagline, Post Meta.

What it does not have:

Image template or any real image CSS - This is best left outside a framework

Support for the_excerpt , by default you must use the "Read More" to split posts in the main loop.

Support for tag output in the main loop, I never use tags and they can add to db overhead.

Some pages are just handled by the main loop, such as single.php, archives , category, tags, etc.

Snippets have been removed and put into a gist here by the original developer.


Stripped out the JavaScript tabs that came with the original HTML Skeleton Framework. The CSS for those elements is still present but it is best to wp_enqueue the javascript using native WP functions.

The footer is left completely unstyled, up to you which grids you want to use, supports 1, 2, 3 or 4 columns easily.

To have a left sidebar just move get_template_part( 'sidebar', 'index' ); to above the loop call (might need minor tweaks).

More grid layout and examples on and
