Just wondering if anyone has had a look at ‘Starkers’ WordPress theme by Elliot Jay Stocks.
It’s basically a totally naked theme with virtually no styling or unnecessary mark-up. Essentially a blank template for WordPress themers, CSS reset and all. I just used it and found it really easy to edit and style. Compared to editing the Default theme it’s a breeze. Even the PHP side was easier to get my head around.
If your not familiar with it and into WordPress theming check it out here.

Haven’t used it yet, but almost sure I’m gonna use it when I have to design a wordpress theme :)September 25, 2008 at 10:01 pm #50146zeroMember
I think Chris talked about Starkers in his "Designing for WP" series.
But ya, I’ve used Starkers. Love it.
I’ve also used the sandbox (http://sndbx.org), which uses alot of complicated php to give posts and pages dynamic classes that describe the post’s date, category, tag, author, etc.
I like Starkers more tho, its more flexible, clean, and simple under the hood.January 8, 2009 at 5:47 am #52827ploughansenMember
I know this site is a big fan of WordPress (my self included), but I am doing a site in Joomla, and are currently trying to customize a theme to fit my client’s need.
Two word…. BIG PAIN! :shock:
I have looked at the Starkers theme by Elliot Jay, and also seen the screencasts by Chris, where he goes over it, and it’s exactly what I need! …just for Joomla!
Anybody know of a good alternative for Joomla templates? I basically want to strip out ALL styles, and be in total control, like all the wordpress-starkers out there.September 29, 2009 at 7:16 am #64822CyberekMember"Robskiwarrior" wrote:something like this?

I does know wordpress starkers, but i’m searching also for joomla starkers, and couldn’t find a good solution ;).November 27, 2009 at 1:23 pm #66865LuminatedMember
I just started using it recently and it’s awesome. Finally get to set up a theme the way I want. So much easier than stripping down (pun) an already designed theme.
And you really learn more about WordPress doing it this way as well. 8-)
