Baseline is aDesign System and WordPress theme designed to be a flexible foundation for many different types of websites. It has options for customizing colors, fonts, layout, and more — by default, it uses 350’s styles, but it can easily be customized to serve a wide variety of other purposes.
Baseline is created specifically for 350’s needs, and is only available on sites hosted by 350. This website uses Baseline!
The goals for Baseline are:
Easy to Customize (relatively) — people with some experience editing websites and a little basic HTML knowledge can use all the features of Baseline
Flexible foundation — a Baseline site can be used as a foundation for many different types of websites
Language-friendly — You can use Baseline to make a website in any language, as well as making sites in multiple languages.
Cross-browser compatible— Baseline should work equally well on a 17″ touchscreen, 11″ laptop, and 4″ mobile screen.
