    Is Starkers still the best place to start a new WP theme from?
    I have been using starkers as a base to my WordPress themes for sometime now. But I was just about to start a new site when I suddenly thought, ‘Is this still the best default starting theme?’

    Are any of you out there using Starkers, and what are your thoughts on it?

    Or do you perhaps use an alternative starting theme, or even just start from a blank .php file?

    Would love to know your thoughts on this.



    I’m going to have to claim naivety here, I have only heard about Starkers on this forum and I haven’t looked into it (nor really know what it is). For the few WP themes that I’ve marked up, I’ve started with a blank php file and just go piece by piece. I think I’d hate feeling restricted to a template.


    Thanks for the replies and if anyone else has an opinion please feel free to add yours!


    I’ve found that I prefer the Whiteboard theme, seems the simplest to me.
