Boilerplate Theme no longer available via the WordPress Repository

Note: My Boilerplate Theme has been removed from the WordPress Repo, but is available from GitHub.

Hello world!

Created by Aaron T. Grogg, Boilerplate: Starkers is a WordPress Theme that merges HTML5 Boilerplate into the Starkers theme, providing developers with an ideal, bleeding-edge, clean-start theme.

Mark-up is minimal (thanks Elliott) and the most edge-case web technology is baked right in (thanks Paul , Divya and a large cast of supporting characters)!

Boilerplate: Starkers is designed to serve as a Parent theme to whatever Child Theme you care to add, but you could just as easily use this as a starting point and alter the PHP as your design needs.

Download Boilerplate: Starkers straight from the WordPress Repository!

Check-out the readme.txt for more info.


WordPress Boilerplate Theme now updated to version 5.0

Available for your pulling or downloading pleasure:

This update brings this theme up-to-date with HTML5 Boilerplate again. You can read all the changes in the Change Log section of the README.txt file.

It’s been a long time, my apologies for the delay…

I’ve also updated the corresponding WP HTML5 Boilerplate plugin:

Happy WordPressing,

WordPress Boilerplate Theme Version 4.3.2 is now live!

So, it took a few days to push through, but it’s finally live!

Thanks to all who have been waiting, please continue to let me know if you find any issues or have any recommendations.

Happy WordPressing,

Version 4.3.2 is kind-of-sort-of live…

Well, WordPress has dumbfounded me yet again… I do not know for how much longer I can deal with the WordProcess…

Version 4.3.1 never made it live because I accidentally forgot to delete two Git files from the repo before I uploaded the Zip.

So, after deleting them and re-uploading (necessitating the version increment), version 4.3.2 has now been listed as the “Current Version” since late last week, but is still neither the version that the Download button links to, nor is it being pushed to users via the Update system.

For anyone that is tired of waiting for the latest updates, you can download a Zip of version 4.3.2 here:

Update: Version 4.3.1 is on it’s way!

I know it has been a while, and that is partly my fault (busy) and partly some fault of the WordPress repo system…

Versions 4.2 and 4.3, for some reason, never made it to the live repo…

If you’re in dire shape for an update, you can grab it here until it goes live on the repo:

Sorry for the delay, and all the hassle,

Latest Update is Finally on it’s Way!

Finally, I made the time to update this theme to version 4.0!

The update is still making it’s way through the update process, but should be available soon!

Thanks to all who made such great recommendations for improvements!
