Shelburne: I might be willing to give it a try then.
Fennessey: You can download it from the website, you have to install the gantry plugin and the theme called hidrogen I think you will see it in their website
Shelburne: Fris2: I’m not looking to do anything with child themes at the moment. I need to get reasonably versed at creating primary themes as well as create a theme framework that best suites me. Although, I’ve considered just adding onto Suffusion for a theme framework.
Kewanwytewa: Ya underscores is meant to be a starting point, having all the template files already created
Shelburne: Something I don’t understand, is WP Team and AFAIK a lot of theme developers ***ume you only want two columns and ***ume you want them on ALL pages.
Perun: Here is a theme i did last year based on _s http://dogpics.ca/new-age-music/
Brigance: Underscores just save you the time of doing all the base of your theme. You just go and style it
Shelburne: For my own website, I want to be able to have a mix between having NO sidebar and having two sidebars, as well as maybe a horizontal sidebar either above or below actual post content.
Marker: You can create templates for the different options.
Shelburne: I guess I would use comments to note what styling/markup I add or change versus what is original to Underscores
Shelburne: _Th1nKT4nK_: Yeah, but there is no selector to choose which template a specific post/page uses is there?
Ramariz: Shelburne ive done it where you can select which sidebar to add to a post/page with a dropdown metabox, then in the backend you can create unlimited sidebars
Shelburne: I thought all you could do is create post,page,category,archive, etc templates by specifying which one they are in their filename.
Shelburne: I actually know how to use CSS to create layouts, but I often run into issues with things not working as expecting when float’ing things.
Damours: The way you can do it is adding a syntax on top of the “special page” and then in the backend you select what kind of page you want to show.
Shelburne: Or one section over-lapping another when I have 5-10px margin or padding set, but it doesn’t seem to be listening to it.
Shelburne: What do you mean by adding a syntax?
Chaulklin: Wait, that’s not the page. you have to add something on top of the page indicating that this page is a template
Delapp: Shelburne so when you creatr a page you can select from the dropdown which template to use
Maull: Then it will appear an option in the backend where you can tell that page to use that template in a dropdown
Morga: That’s correct like fris2 says
Gruver: Let me search for that in the wordpress site
Seaburn: Fris2: https://codex.----escape_autolink_uri:a03ded6cd97ffffa8f7b4e1454f3eecc----.org/Pages
Shelburne: Well, when I customize a special template before, I only had to change one of the comment attributes at the top to have an adjusted name and it would show up in the drop-down. But, I don’t even see that drop-down since Suffusion took away those specialized templates.
Vagnier: Here it is https://developer.----escape_autolink_uri:a03ded6cd97ffffa8f7b4e1454f3eecc----.org/themes/template-files-section/page-template-files/page-templates/
Pickell: Suffusion isnt really a starter theme
Schuffert: Its full bloated theme
Stirna: So if you add ?php /* Template Name: Example Template */ ? you don’t see it?
Housman: If you are looking to make a unique design of your own, use _s not something thats already styled
Guimaraes: Underscores is pretty cool, it saves ton of time
Sumi: Gonna try disk warrior though
Roskovensky: Just have to figure out how to make a bootable usb of it from a windows machine
Savaria: It can take any sort of bootable image and add it to a usb stick
Cool: Will try that first, i did go into diagnostic mode, and it said found no errors which was weird
Baisten: Everything else fails, verbose, single, safe, single user, recovery, internet recovery, only 2 that work are diagnostic and boot to drive
