Begin End of Life transition: The theme will be phased out in the coming year. Critical maintenance and upkeep updates will continue in the meantime.

A word-centric and minimalist theme for WordPress, built atop the great Bones starter theme by Eddie Machado (learn more about Bones below). This isn't a child theme, but it can be used as a parent theme. It's built using HTML5 and aims to maximize accessibility and responsiveness. If you notice bugs, holes, or Things That Could Be Better, I'm entirely open to contribution. Just let me know. :)

IMPORTANT NOTE ON USAGE: If you choose to use this theme for yourself, please note that it was built for 1 site in particular -- Nursing Clio -- and so cannot be dropped in to another site without editing the theme files directly. I hope to change this in future versions, but for now them's the breaks.

"This last year – the first full year of the machine’s operation – it was estimated that at least one half of all the novels and stories published in the English language were produced by Adolph Knipe upon the Great Automatic Grammatizator.

Does this surprise you?

I doubt it.

And worse is yet to come. Today, as the secret spreads, many more are hurrying to tie up with Mr. Knipe. And all the time the screw turns tighter for those who hesitate to sign their names.

This very moment, as I sit here listening to the howling of my nine starving children in the other room, I can feel my own hand creeping closer and closer to that golden contract that lies over on the other side of the desk.

Give us strength, Oh Lord, to let our children starve."

-- Roald Dahl, "The Great Automatic Grammatizator," 1954.

Grammatizator is built on the solid foundation of the Bones starter theme
