The Best Wordpress Starter Theme

It’s been a while since I have posted anything. Things have been busy at work as well as starting to put together some basic IOS tutorials to fill in some of the gaps and the experiences I have been having with IOS but I recently had to build a Wordpress site for a client of mine and I noticed I always started from scratch myself. I realized how much of a time suck this is for me and decided to do some research and find the best starter theme.

The requirements for the theme were the following

  • Could not be a framework – I was looking for something simple and i didn’t want to have somebody else’s  structure that did not fit what I was trying to do.
  • HTML5 – I figured if I was looking for something it might as well be the latest
  • Has a basic functions.php file already setup – Adds all the basics like menus and features like that, that I would typically have to do myself
  • Little to no html in the files – I didn’t want to have to take somebody else’s html and make it look the way I needed it to look for the project

After doing some searching and trying many different ones I finally came across html5blank. This was perfect and fit everything I needed. I saved many many hours with this because I do not do WordPress sites very often anymore and I always have to go re-lookup the basic structure and all of the things that need to go into the functions.php file.
