Home Forums CSS blank template in wordpress 3.0.1 Re: blank template in wordpress 3.0.1



Let me clarify a few things. I wanted to stop using the Starkers Theme because of how bulky the files were. I asked Coyier on twitter what HTML5 theme he was using for CSS-Tricks in which he referred me to a digwp article. Inside the content of the article, if you read it, referred to an HTML5 Reset Theme. The one I was referring to above and currently suggesting for you to use.

After downloading whatever theme you choose, simply add it to the following directory of your WordPress installation:


Go to the Dashboard on the admin page usually found at

To activate the theme, look for the tab, Appearance > Themes

Identify the theme you want to use, click Activate.
