I have an existing static site, built on top of Bootstrap, with custom CSS. Now I want to move the site to WordPress (yay).
But I want to keep all the styling and layout in WordPress exactly the same as the existing site, as far as is possible.
What's the easiest and most future-proof way to do this? I would like to be able to upgrade WordPress in the future without having to rewrite the theme from scratch.
Ideally I'd find the "vanilla Bootstrap" theme for WordPress, make a child theme, drop in my existing CSS, tweak a few divs and PHP tags for layout, and be done.
I don't think this is an option, so should I create a child theme on top of something else? If so, what?
(I looked at the non-Bootstrap BlankSlate, but it says that it doesn't recommend using child themes but rather rewriting your code yourself each time you upgrade, as a learning exercise, which doesn't sound like what I want.)
What are my best options for making WordPress look the same as a mature existing "on top of Bootstrap" site? I really don't want to have to redesign everything from scratch, just for WordPress.
