One highly-requested child theme added by the Theme Hybrid community on the themes survey was a “skeleton” child theme for Hybrid, which is basically a child theme with no styling (a starter theme).
For those of you that requested it, here it is. This is a blank theme that’ll allow you to easily make child themes for the Hybrid theme framework.
This is all you’ll ever need to start creating child themes under the Hybrid theme framework. Combine your mastery of CSS with the Hybrid tutorials. You can even share your custom child themes in the community forum.
Some features of this child theme
Skeleton was built with designers in mind, but pretty much anyone with a little CSS knowledge can use this blank theme to work from.
style.cssfile is in a hierarchical format, giving you a visual understanding of how things are presented.
- Easy enough for budding theme designers to take and make their own.
- Allows you to create client work much faster.
- More time to focus on design instead of figuring out what every class and ID of the theme does.
- You don’t need to rip apart one of Theme Hybrid’s child themes to make your own.
