I spent quite a while studying Bones and Underscores(_s) theme. There are many articles discussing these two starter themes. I personally prefer Bones to _s, because it’s much more ready-to-go.
The latest version of Bones starter theme is very friendly to the official Theme Check plugin. Eddie had done a great job to make this happen in the last update. But when I got Bones on my WordPress blog and ran Theme Check, I still found several ‘errors’ needed to be fixed. This is what I got from the plugin:
It’s been a long time since I published my last WordPress Theme. Recently I started a new website: No Newz is Good News to share things that are worth sharing online. I decided to develop a new theme.
As so many things are different now, I sought for a starter theme or a theme framework to begin with. After trying several of them, I found Bones and Underscore. Both are great, but if possible, I hoped I could have two more things in my themes which are: Bootstraps and a powerful option panel. I thought it’s impossible to find a starter theme to have all these stuff together, but I met BREW. Dan Brown was looking for the same things as I did, he didn’t find any, so he created one by his own.

- Fixed a bug in comments.
Theme name: Skeptical
Author: Nur Fathihah
WordPress Version: 3.0+
Support website: WooThemes
Tags: Three Columns, Left Sidebar, Right Sidebar, Widget Ready, Fixed Width, Threaded Comments, Menu Support
Skeptical’s layout is very flexible in the sense that you can display “related posts” next to your latest posts on the home page, OR have a completely widgetized sidebar. Not only that, you can also add your Flickr stream to the footer region and showcase three noteworthy blog posts tagged with a specific tag that you declare in the theme options.
From Now on all my themes will be released on WordPress Hey.
Gray Lines is the first WordPress theme I created. By the time it was released, there is still no threaded comments, comment page or built-in menu. WordPress’s growing quite fast, quite a lot of features been added, thus I upgraded this theme several times, in this version, I added menu support for WordPress 3.x to make it up to date. Wish you like it.
