Prebuilt is a wordpress theme focusing on helping you learn wordpress, rather than spilling a whole bunch of files in your face and saying “good luck”. Prebuilt contains commented code so you can figure out just exactly what you’re doing without much hassle.
Prebuilt was created not to be heavily graphical and feature a lot of ajax goodness, but to be effective while at the same time, an easy way of learning WordPress. Working in harmony with our series on WordPress Customization, Prebuilt can become your new favorite theme.
