Starkish is the starter theme for people who hate starter themes. It includes no CSS or presentational markup whatsoever, and it's meant to be hacked on.
What's all this, then?
Starkish is a compromise between the styleless "Stark" theme and all the other bulky framework themes. It includes NO CSS (except for tabs) and minimal markup like Stark, but includes page and node templates along with convenient template.php functions like Zen (much of it was borrowed from the great Basic theme at http://drupal.org/project/basic).
How To Use Starkish
Starkish is meant to be hacked on. Since it includes no extra markup (i.e., no divs in the templates) and no extra CSS, you're free to edit the templates and the CSS as you wish. Create your layout divs. Re-order things. Add stylesheets. Remove things you don't need. Do whatever you want.
- Smart, stripped body, node, comment, and block classes.
- Simple .info file for easy customization.
- Lack of any sort of presentational divs in templates or any CSS.
- Option for registry rebuilds with page loads.
- Put the theme in /sites/all/themes (or sites/yoursite.com/themes).
- (Optional) Rename the theme and replace the default screenshot.png if you want to.
- Head to admin/build/themes to enable it and make it the default.
- Edit as you wish.
