So far I have been experimenting with adding theme options to my theme for when I get ready to actually share the theme with the WordPress community. I have the basic file structure that I want to be using for themes down the road. It is of course HTML5 and I’ll try and mess around with CSS3 and transitions eventually.

The basic markup is:

< !doctype html>


This should be a rough guideline for the future themes and pages I create. The next stage will be using PHP to display all the dynamic content.

The reason I think this is a good structure is because it almost replicates a book. The <header> tags act like the index for the site while the <footer>  acts as information and the <div> with the class of content is, of course, the content of the site.

Next step: files to be used and the folder structure.
