Project Zero

Main Stylesheet (style.css)

The style.css file is required for every WordPress theme. While you can use the stylesheet to control the theme’s styles, WordPress also uses this to declare information about the theme in the Appearance dashboard panel. You can save information relevant to the theme in the header comment in your stylesheet.

The header comment for Project Zero looks like this:

  Theme Name:         Sehanine (Project Zero Theme)
  Description:        A blank theme developed for budding WordPress theme developers. You can use this as a starting point for all of your theme development. The theme goes under the name of "Sehanine", after the Moonweaver deity from Dungeons and Dragons.  She has been used in the liveplay stream Critical Role and is the Goddess of illusion and misdirection, appearing in a number of forms as fits her purpose.  She's probably the best deity to name a theme after, since the purpose of a theme is to create a new image as you see fit.

{REPO-NAME} is also set as the textdomain for translation purposes. It is required that your textdomain matches your theme’s slug. More information can be found in Internationalisation.
