What is VC Theme?

Inspired by Underscores for WordPress and other popular starter themes, VC Theme aims to help developers jumpstart the development process by providing the necessary files to get started with a few added features, including Bootstrap and custom page templates. It is especially great for those looking to learn theme development, because comments are spread liberally throughout theme files. Devoid of any styling, VC Theme is the perfect starting point for your next project. Happy coding!
