Clean Slate is the perfect starting point for client web development. Here’s why:
Built with developers in mind
Every line of code is placed thoughtfully in a simple, clean and organized fashion. Every section has accompanying comments, perfectly spaced indentation, and thorough documentation to match.
Customizing the CSS
Customizing the CSS for your site is super easy. You have a few options to choose from:
- Use the “Custom CSS” theme option – this is a textarea input built-into the theme options, where you can paste your custom CSS overrides. These will be dynamically placed after all other CSS styles. This is the easiest/fastest way to customize the CSS while keeping all theme files intact and un-edited (making it easy to upgrade the theme in the future).
- Use the custom.css stylesheet – For those who prefer working directly in their code editor, we’ve also provided a blank custom.css stylesheet in the theme files. This is already called in the theme, after all other CSS styles. Just add your custom CSS here and you’re done. To upgrade the theme in the future, you would simply leave this file unchanged, and update everything else.
Clean Slate is not intended to be a “Framework”. It’s a WordPress theme, plain and simple. Install, activate and done.
However, that doesn’t mean you can’t create child themes for Clean Slate. You can! That’s the recommended method for when you want to make more drastic changes to your site structure, functionality, and whatnot. Learn more about creating WordPress child themes here.
