Styling My WP Theme

I’ve begun styling my WordPress theme. It’s going well, but it’s taking some time as I didn’t quite realise how many markup elements there are in a theme. In case you’re wondering, there are lots and lots and lots.  Still, I’m enjoying it, so it’s all good.

Regarding my style choices, I’ve opted to try and replicate my Twitter profile page. It’s totally different from the minimalist style I’d normally go for, but I like it and think it’s kind of fun. Interestingly, or not, I didn’t realise, until I started to attempt to replicate it, how good the current Twitter page and UX design is. Personally, I think it is a work of genius.

I’m sure my attempt at replicating it will pale in comparison, but as long as I get the basics right, I’ll be happy. Anyhow, the code has been going up to the GitHub repo and I’m hoping to pull it down to this production server soon.

A somewhat funny observation: I’ve used Twitter’s Bootstrap in pretty much every project for the past year, but now, as I’m attempting to replicate my Twitter profile page, I’ve opted not to use it. Go figure.
