Wouldn’t it be great if you could create a custom theme for every site you build, every client site you build and have it automatically updated with the latest security fixes directly from WordPress themselves?
Thankfully, you can and it’s a very simple process. In fact, WordPress designed their platform so that any of us, with only a few simple steps, can use a robust basic theme and make as many or few changes as we’d like. When the basic theme is updated it keeps all of our customization intact.
The following video shows how to do it with the twentyeleven theme but it is just as easy to do with any theme you want to use. I am currently using twentytwelve that comes standard in the WordPress install.
