Just joined up after visiting this site for a number of years!
I usually use Drupal CMS and the Omega mobile first theme but have decided to use wordpress for my personal site. It seems wordpress can do exactly what I want in addition to having a clean and much more usable dash (IMHO) compared to Drupal. The thing is, I’m at a bit of a loss on how to actually get started. Got wordpress installed, I like the idea of being able to tweak the html myself (Drupal gives you little control over that). I’m good to go, apart from the barrier of choosing a theme.
In Drupal I would use the Omega theme and make a child theme of that so theme updates didn’t overwrite my changes.
Is it the same sort of thing with wordpress? Maybe using a framework with a child theme? I looked at bones starter theme but don’t know LESS/SASS yet so would prefer to stick with good old fashioned css until I am more comfortable with theming. Basically, what do other people do who make custom responsive wordpress sites?
