I've previously done Tumblr themes and this is my first Wordpress theme. After initially starting out a theme from scratch I decided to switch to _S due to time constraints.
My issue is that I may have misunderstood what _S is, so I'm here to get some clarity on a few things.
First off, I decided to go with the _S theme as what I understand is that it has all the functionality side of things already done (functions & other PHP) as the site I'm intending to make does not need fancy functionality right now, so this would let me get on with the design aspects. Is this a correct assumption and what exactly is _S?
I had a look at the
style.cssas well as layout folder, and my main issue is here. I'm intending to build a site with my own particular layout so should I replace all the CSS in
style.csswith my own? I'm not sure if I should as most of it seemed just to be good practice CSS to make sure things work but could I be wrong in this and is it there more for stylistic purposes? Then there's the issue with my own, actual CSS for the site, should I just place it under the CSS already in
style.cssor make it on a new file and have that linked in?
Basically all I want to do is get on with detailing how the particulars of my visuals are at the moment, can i do this with _S?
Also would _S allow me to add my own particular functionality easily or would I be better off with making my own parent theme as I want to avoid modifying a theme?
