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.

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!

    It’s a fucking mess is what it is. Let’s make children of child templates so we can have loop-childs of loops. What the fuck?

    Yea, you’re right… I like it because you just need to remove the crap and code the custom/advanced stuff. Have you tried Simplest theme?
    It’s meant to be the smallest WP theme ever, maybe you like it.
