WP-Skeleton - WordPress Theme

This is a very minimal Bare Bones Responsive WordPress theme based on


  • Very Easy to customise, it's basically a blank theme.
  • Responsive Media Query Layout
  • Very small footprint: Entire theme is only 55kb
  • Very small load query, only 15-20 WordPress queries made to the DB by default.
  • Bundled with full 960 based CSS Responsive Grid
  • 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 is 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, 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.


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

The demo sites keep going down because PHP Cloud based app sites suck..sorry
