I have personally created over 100 WordPress themes for friends, family, and clients over the last 4-5 years. Over this time – I have been working on a “starter” theme which would allow me to have something to use for each new theme I create, all while giving the users the most easy way to control their content and everything about their site.
I finally did so by developing Lucidity – a commercial WordPress theme. This theme is great for people who want to control colors, add in their analytics code, their social network links, and just start blogging. Changing background colors, link colors, etc is as easy as copying and pasting in color codes into the admin.
This theme is also great for developers as well because if offers a solid start at theme development – with the customizable options for their clients on top of everything else.
All the code is cleanly written and not overcomplicated so it is a great theme to use or simply learn from.
You can test drive the site: Lucidity Demo Site, and also purchase it as well.
We will continue to develop the theme and use our user’s feedback to make it even better.
