Starter Package for new WordPress projects with:

mu-plugins/

  • In this directory there is a must-use-plugin titled Starter Theme Functionality. This plugin contains useful functions that are project-related rather than theme-related.
  • Must Use Plugins are executed (ie. activated automatically) before any other plugins, and cannot be disabled by the user. This is a great way to store important functionality for a WordPress project, and ensure it won't be accidentally deactivated or removed.
  • Functions in the plugin: removal of the default link to attachment file on images, removal of the <p> tag around images, setup of custom editor styles, customization of the excerpt
  • Resources:

themes/starter-theme/

plugins/
