Big Red Framework

We’ve updated the base WordPress theme we use at Soupgiant for WordPress 3.1+ and to make more use of the WordPress API.

Along with the standard features you would expect in a WordPress framework, it includes

Never use the framework proper to set up a theme, set up a child theme instead.

  • Copy the files from the starter directory into the base folder of your child theme
  • Create the sub-directory assets in your child theme
  • Copy the framework’s assets/child/ directory into the assets directory of your child theme

See the WordPress codex page on child themes for more information.

More documentation to come!
