    Hi !

    I have to create a WordPress website that works on every latest browser +ipad + smartphone.

    It's the first time I have to build this kind of site from the scratch. So that I have a few question :

    - Should I create my own template from "empty files"
    - Is there an easy to customize responsive template ? I need 1 100% large header + 2 colons + footer.
    - Is there a way that the index page displays the content of a page entry ?

    I would thank a lot any answer that could orientate my work,

    It is possible to create a theme from scratch but it would be a lot of work.

    The new default theme 'Twenty Twelve' is fully responsive so you could create a child theme for that, or here's some other suggestions from another thread that may be helpful:

    @vince_ thankfully there are plenty of responsive themes that are being offered nowadays. The link PinkishHue provided is a good start. The one I have thought about looking into testing out myself is Emil's Responsive theme. He offers really awesome support and is in the .org repo as well. :)

    Creating a theme from scratch may not be that hard but it can be time consuming. As far as displaying a page in the index it may be possible through a $query and using that page's ID to display the_content().
