Guys do you think WordPress theme Customizer API https://codex.wordpress.org/Theme_Customization_API

have more features or equivalent to SMOF or OPTION TREE Framework?

Because i see WP Theme customizer can change just colors, background and fonts only.

Thank you

False, you can add checkboxes, drop downs, conditionals. Whilst there’s a little bit more work to do out of the box, the point is that the customisation api is native, built in and ready to use. I’ve used it on every theme I released on here and never once needed any more features that it can provide :)

I am afraid that there is many great frameworks that have lots of feature and in comparison with WP Theme Customizer you are saying it has all features like other framework does. Can you share with me any wordpress theme here that have Advance customization through WP THEME CUSTOMIZER API?

Sorry for off-topic but I have a question regarding native wp theme customizer.

1. Is there a way to increase width of customizer ? 2. Is there posibility to add tabs inside customizer ?
