Underscores is a starter theme. It is the law. When you’ve downloaded your copy of Underscores, which is covered in the first part of this video series, it becomes yours to tweak how you please. In this video, I show you exactly how I tweak the default Underscores CSS.

In this part of the video series, I show you exactly what to do to open up the Underscores HTML structure to more possibilities so your theme projects have a much more flexible starting point.
Underscores appears to have a lot of moving parts if you’ve never built a WordPress theme before. It’s not as complicated as it looks, though. In this video, I’ll show you how those files work together to make a very simple WordPress theme.
