Benjamin of Titan Framework here.
@kprovance I’ll have to point out that the first two facts of yours may be incorrect. Here’s what I know about GPL:
When GPL is in place, he can change the code any way he wants and can rebrand it to whatever he wants, just as long as if released publicly, the modified framework should still have the same GPL license. I don’t think attribution is required unless specified in the license. Of course, morally the original author and project should be attributed.
@SimpleRain & @kprovance Going back to the topic, I don’t think @splendous is talking about stealing, rebranding and selling the modified framework. From the original post, I gather that he just wants to fork Redux and tailor fit it to his needs, adding features as their themes need them.
@splendous, I think it would be better to just use Redux as it is and build your theme around it without modifying it. You’ll get the benefit of bug fixes and new features for the framework, without implementing them yourself. Instead of developing it further, just create extensions that work with it. Personally, forking it and modifying it completely would be more work and time consuming if you’re simply doing it to create themes.
Since we are in the topic of frameworks, I would like suggest for you to take a look at Titan Framework.
Meta boxes can also be created as well as theme customizer sections with live previews. The options you mentioned aren’t yet available in Titan, although they have already been suggested in the issue tracker in GitHub.
Titan’s getting more and more awesome contributors. Those options will be coming in soon
Thanks for the support guys! I hope you do use the framework in your projects, and if you do, don’t forget to tell me so that we can add it in the showcase section of the site. Currently we still don’t have any published themes out there that use Titan. I’m about to create one though
Most of the features like font previewer, drug-n-drop shorting, code highlighter, radio palette option, radio image option etc. are very nice. Is there any option, that we can make something more complex as we need to make some options for team members. Thanks.
What do you have in mind for this?
@ardalann suggested a repeatable option for adding/removing/sorting a grouped set of options: https://github.com/gambitph/Titan-Framework/issues/43
Titan Framework is now awesome and I’d like to hopefully convince you guys to try out the options framework in your themes. It’s 100% free to use in your themes. Here’re some features:
- Automatic CSS generation with SCSS syntax support
- Advanced font style selector for web safe fonts and Google fonts
- Lots of options
- All options available in admin pages, meta boxes and theme customizer
- Very easy to use, no complex configurations, little code needed
Here’s the live demo you can try out: http://demo.titanframework.net

Sarah Gooding is awesome and wrote an article about Titan http://wptavern.com/speed-up-wordpress-development-with-the-titan-framework
Just an update, we are now at v1.2.1
- Lots of bug fixes
- Titan can now generate CSS automatically for the options you create
- Added a radio-image option
- Added a radio-palette
- Titan can now be embedded into your project
- Supports child themes
- Now has French translations!
FYI, Just added a WYSIWYG editor option
Hopefully, you’ll still remain motivated to develop it further this way. Perhaps build out some extensions later and sell them.
Yes I am very much motivated. In fact, I just updated to include some styling in admin pages
Oh and since the first post in this thread indicated that Titan has a subscription, I made a new thread that tells the changes. Can you post there also to bump it up?http://themeforest.net/forums/thread/titan-framework-options-framework-for-wordpress-now-out-relaunch/123502
Alright, this is the second post regarding the launching of this. There’s one main difference.. now Titan Framework is completely free and open source. The documentation is readily available also, no registrations or anything.
To all WordPress developers,
I’ve just released Titan Framework, an easy to use WordPress options framework. It’s now available in the WP plugins repo.
I built this framework plugin to make building themes and plugins easier and faster. I decided to just put it out there so that others can use it as well and made it 100% open source.
The framework allows the easy creation of:
Admin menus and submenus Admin pages Admin options and tabs Meta boxes and options Theme customizer sections and options with live preview support 20+ options, including the selection of Google WebFonts Here are the links to it:

Sample theme: https://github.com/gambitph/Titan-Framework-Demo-Theme
TitanFramework GitHub repo: https://github.com/gambitph/Titan-Framework
TitanFramework site & docs at: http://www.titanframework.net
Please check it out. And if you’re interested and thinking of using a framework like this for your next TF project, try installing the sample theme to get a demo of all the capabilities of the framework. Just install and activate the theme in your WP instance.
Let me know what you think!
Speaking of demo install. Here’s one for Titan Framework: https://github.com/gambitph/Titan-Framework-Demo-Theme
