I’d like to share child base sample theme I recently conformed to work with the new html5 support Genesis has begun in 1.9+ and will fully be implement in 2.0.
My starter theme utilizes Genesis’s new add_theme_support( ‘genesis-html5′ ); feature. It is meant to be a base to start building from, and it in itself is a work in progress. At the current state, this starter child theme should shave hours off development time when building custom child themes Genesis. It is being actively tested with what I know about 2.0, and should work well with it.
Please, lend comments, feedback, or suggestions! The project is available via GitHub as well.
Is there a working demo of your starter theme? Or is that still in the works?
Good idea, I updated my post with a link to a demo version of the starter theme, or see it in works here – http://www.gregreindel.com/sample-theme/
Looks clean. I like it.
If you aren’t having fun you are doing it wrong
Hi Greg, took the template for a spin while trying to solve some layout issues with the Sensei Plugin and Genesis and it seems to work nicely… (sorry only localhost so nothing to show)
Only thing that I do not like is the reset css. I always use Firebug to do the css and because of the long reset defs you have too scroll way down before you arrive at the relevant css rules.
Does look like there will have to be quite a bit of study into the new elements etc. now that we will soon be looking at html5 on a regular basis
