Kube Tutorial by Lingulo


HTML5 responsive website


Download it from GitHub

Please note! Due to the use of CSS flexbox this website only works in the latest browser versions. Be sure to know that before using Kube for a production website.

In this quick Kube tutorial we will be creating a very simple yet modern and elegant personal portfolio website using Kube. Kube is a small CSS framework using the latest CSS techniques. The grid system is not using any floats but instead the new CSS flexbox which is already supported in current versions of all mayor browsers. In the future using flexbox will be the default way to create layouts in CSS and Kube is already starting now. Kube doesn’t include any JavaScript functionality like sliders, accordions etc. which might be missing features at first sight. But that is actually the strength of Kube because it is kept small and very basic without any fancy designs or features which would bloat the whole framework with stuff we don’t even need.

Welcome to the second part of my tutorial on how to create a WordPress HTML5 template from an existing website. Be sure to read the first part before continuing here.

We have created a new HTML5 WordPress template that currently displays our home page including a menu, that can be customized through WordPress and three new posts for our slider content boxes. The next step is to create new layouts for posts and pages. As explained in the previous part of this tutorial the navigation items “About”, “Contact” and “Portfolio” would link to pages while the “Read more” links would rather link to posts.

In this tutorial we will take the responsive website we have built in the previous tutorials and implement it into Wordpress.
