Web Depot: Build Wordpress Sites With a Strong Foundation

The popular WordPress publishing platform offers countless third party plugins and themes, but it’s often better to build your own vision when creating a website — and this does not have to involve reinventing the wheel.

Enter FoundationPress (foundationpress.olefredrik.com), a feature-packed WordPress starter theme using Zurb’s Foundation 5, an advanced mobile-first responsive framework.

According to its publisher, FoundationPress is a small and handy toolbox that contains the essentials needed to build any design, and is meant to be a starting point, not the final product — advising users that if they’re “looking for an all-in-one theme with built-in shortcodes, plugins, fancypancy portfolio templates or whatnot,” they will have to look elsewhere. For those seeking an open source WordPress based platform that supports SASS and Grunt, however, FoundationPress is a robust starting point with endless opportunities for customization, and an available UI kit for Photoshop and more.
