About Jump Start
What is the Theme Blvd framework?
This is the theme framework that we’ve developed exclusively for most of our commercial WordPress themes. Some popular WordPress themes that are currently running it include Swagger, Alyeska, and Akita.
What is Jump Start?
Jump Start takes the Theme Blvd framework and packages it with all of its default settings into a full-featured WordPress theme, intended to be edited completely from a Child theme. The initial design is simple and will give you the perfect starting point to create your next WordPress site.
Jump Start comes with a complete developer API, and is intended to be completely edited from a Child theme. Developers can find a growing library of tutorials at dev.themeblvd.com.
What is a Child theme?
A WordPress Child theme is a theme that inherits the functionality of another theme, called the Parent theme, and allows you to modify, or add to, the functionality of that Parent theme.
So, in other words, Jump Start is your Parent theme, and then you make your customization to it from a Child theme, which is your creation and design. Read more about the Child theme concept here.
