Skeleton for other Parent themes « Community

Welcome, guest!

Feel free to read the blog, browse for themes, or join the club.

The community forums are currently being phased out. At the end of February or early March 2012, you will no longer be able to post here. This is because the entire site is being restructured. Please use the main forums for discussions.

Skeleton for other Parent themes

  1. First post since joining up. (Great resource here, thanks).

    I have been working with Skeleton and Hybrid, learning and exploring. I have found the Skeleton style sheet of tremendous value, because of its organization and tabbed structure. I have a visual sense of the hierarchy immediately. A very effective organizing tool.

    My idea: offer a Skeleton-type child for development to go along with some of the new Parent themes (Prototype, in particular). I understand that the trend is to create Parent themes, which I think makes great sense after reading some of the blog posts. To develop our own Child themes from these Parents, a companion Parent-Skeleton would, I think, be welcome.

    Just a thought. --Bill

  3. Justin, I saw that reference to Prototype child themes, definitely helpful.

    What I was trying to suggest was the idea providing a style sheet for a Child similar to the Skeleton Child theme's style sheet, where the style elements were organized into a hierarchical presentation.

    (Example of what I am referring to, from Skeleton style sheet, is below.)

    I might do this for myself re Prototype, if I start working with it extensively. (If I do so, I am happy to post that sort of empty style sheet in case anyone else wanted to work from it).

  4. Just to bump this topic a little, I've been rocking with a Prototype theme all last week and making fantastic progress. The client is stoked, and I've largely got the Hybrid ecosystem to thank for that. Just in the last couple days I've started final polishing and I've had to do a lot of explicit over-riding of style settings that are imported from the Prototype style.css. Just simple stuff like borders, backgrounds and font styles, but it seems like an extra step that could be eliminated for future child theme authors if we let them import a really basic skeleton stylesheet that just floats the divs according to 2c-l, 3c-l etc and leaves the rest as markup defaults?

  5. oops, should read "rocking with a Prototype *child* theme"
