    Seems like a great idea, but as I start building my child theme the first thing I notice is that while you have Custom_Header_Image supported in the Admin back end, it’s not in the actual public site.

    2010 (where the code came from to start with) has, rather then a function in functions.php to insert CSS code, a routine to look for a header image in it’s header.php – boilerplate has neither… was this on purpose?

      @Ted: No… Will look into it, thanks for the “header”-up! :-)

      Sorry, that was uncalled for…

    Thanks for this theme! I just redid my blog/portfolio site using a child of it.

    One thing really tripped me up, though, so I thought I’d mention it to you: Despite using HTML5BP as a starting point, the following is missing from your header:

    So useful! I recommending including it.

      Well, not exactly no CSS or JS, but very little; and no design styles, for sure.

      That is, in fact, the the purpose of this Theme, to offer clean, cutting edge HTML, without any fluff, so it is ready for designers & developers to apply their own design.
