WordPress Stalker… I mean Starkers!

Everytime I search for the Starkers blank WordPress theme created by Elliot the only thing I recall is that it was called something like “stalker”. And I spend some good 20 minutes trying to find out how it was called exactly.
I’ll use this post as an experiment and try to rank #1 for WordPress Stalker Theme and use it as a shortcut to the real name that I always forget.

I’ve got invites for a free bank transfer!

This is the link to the Starkers Theme

Starker Theme is a blank theme specially useful for WordPress theme developers. It has the mandatory code and file structure needed to start developing a brand new theme hence saving you tons of time. I prefer this one rather than other WordPress blank themes as all the junk has been removed and you start from a pure start with the minimal code possible which later derives in smaller and more concise code.

BTW, thanks Elliot, it’s great!

    Hello Xavier, is the doanload a single file ? I assume I need to download the txt file and rename it to php right? Then I put in a folder with name adminhelper and upload?

  • Xavi Author says:

    Yes Yubi, download the file as admin-helper.php and put it into your /plugins/ folder

    Hey thanks and a happy new year! Thanks, did that and activated it in the admin section but I can’t see it. It’s really hidden and I don’t see something like in the screenshot. I went in to edit pages etc to see if it showed up. Help?

    Happy new year to you! :)
    Check if you have wp_footer(); function in your footer.php theme file as well as wp_head(); in your header.php (if not, add them before and before ).
    Also note that it will only show up when you are logged in. I have it installed in my website (this one) and a few others with WordPress 3.3 and it works great.

    Ок. My mistake. I see it on the front end of the website. Was searching in the admin.
