Looking for good themes to make child themes from (3 posts)

    I have enjoyed working on a twentytwelve child theme, and I am wondering if there are other quality themes anyone can suggest. Not interested in frameworks or starter themes, just quality themes for making child themes from. I like the idea of using underscores, but my CSS is not up to the level where I can use it. Still learning. twentytwelve has been a great theme for me. I trust the code and like that its maintained by Automatic. Are there other themes that serve this purpose well?

    Many of the themes in https://wordpress.org/themes/ will support child theming. Have you had a look at https://wordpress.org/themes/responsive

    I have looked at Responsive a couple of times, but haven't bitten. I should look at it again, now that my projects have stabilized. I should have mentioned that I have done child themes from numerous themes, but enjoyed twentytwelve the most. Lots of support and turorials. I'm reading about frameworks and starter themes, but I'm not confident enough to go that route, and don't know that I need to either. I guess I am looking for themes of the calibre of Responsive. I have read that it is coded well, which is something I would like to learn from.
