3.3 Starting Theme Development

In this lesson, we stub out the header.php, index.php, and footer.php templates as well as the style.css file in order to make sure that our theme appears in the WordPress dashboard. We'll test to ensure that all of the code that’s we’ve written up to this point is up to part such that we’re able to begin working with implementing the Theme Customizer. We'll even go as far as implementing a few default functions that the Theme Customizer will manipulate without us having to write any integration code.

This lesson sets the stage for us writing our own custom Sections, Settings, and Controls in the Theme Customizer.
