Default Wordpress .gitignore file
# This is a template .gitignore file for git-managed WordPress projects.
#
# Fact: you don't want WordPress core files, or your server-specific
# configuration files etc., in your project's repository. You just don't.
#
# Solution: stick this file up your repository root (which it assumes is
# also the WordPress root directory) and add exceptions for any plugins,
# themes, and other directories that should be under version control.
#
# See the comments below for more info on how to add exceptions for your
# content. Or see git's documentation for more info on .gitignore files:
# http://kernel.org/pub/software/scm/git/docs/gitignore.html
# CLEANING THE REPOSITORY
# If you've added this .gitignore file in an existing repository, you may want to remove the content that should be ignored. Here is how to do that.
# you can use a wildcard to remove all files, and then add all the files back, and then commit the updates.
# $ git commit -m "Pre Cleanup"
# $ git rm -r --cached .
# $ git add .
# $ git commit -m ".gitignore setup and cleaned up"
# Ignore everything in the root except the "wp-content" directory.
/*
!.gitignore
!wp-content/
!wp-config.php
# Ignore everything in the "wp-content" directory, except the "plugins"
# and "themes" directories.
wp-content/*
!wp-content/plugins/
!wp-content/themes/
# Ignore everything in the "plugins" directory, except the plugins you
# specify (see the commented-out examples for hints on how to do this.)
wp-content/plugins/*
# !wp-content/plugins/my-single-file-plugin.php
# !wp-content/plugins/my-directory-plugin/
# Ignore everything in the "themes" directory, except the themes you
# specify (see the commented-out example for a hint on how to do this.)
wp-content/themes/*
# !wp-content/themes/my-theme/

Just stumbled on this.. I don't think you mean to add !wp-config.php which has secure keys in it... The original gist that this was forked from does not include that file.

i can't seem to un-ignore my theme folder? No changes are noticed and re-tried from scratch several times. Any ideas?

The below command will help you to ignore the wp-config.php when it will be on tracking mode even it has been mentioned in the .gitignore file to be ignored.

git update-index --assume-unchanged -- wp-config.php

or

git update-index --skip-worktree -- wp-config.php

you should use assume-unchanged or skip-worktree instead.
