Temperance Starter Theme
Temperance is a WordPress starter theme. The name comes from the virtue – which is the value of moderation. The purpose of this starter theme is to provide a foundation, without limiting you.
A WordPress starter theme is designed to provide you with a head start, while allowing you to change every file as needed to meet your project’s needs. It’s built using PHP, HTML5, CSS, and Sass. Temperance provides a solid, semantic foundation, for you to build upon. This is different from a parent theme, where you are discouraged from changing the parent theme files.
Temperance provides you with a library of additional functionality, specifically for WordPress. Some of these features include:
- Easy access to menus,
- Pagination links,
- Copyright function
- Adaptable templates
Accessibility is essential for a solid user experience, and a consideration during every development decision.

Temperance undergoes periodic development. If you are a user of Temperance, I’d appreciate your feedback, and I’m open to contributions. :)
