I’m looking for some input from any Wordpress theme developers. Do any of you have any tips for development? I did some minor theme development a few years back and am looking at getting back into it in more of a full time production capacity.
What I’m looking for as well is if any of you are using a framework of sometime to speed up your development? Are frameworks even allowed for use when selling a theme on Themeforest or do the designs have to be coded without?
I am currently going back through the Rockable Press Books for Wordpress development and doing some online studying to get the coding end down – any assistance from the developers here would be greatly appreciated.
This is what I’m doing…
Frameworks are great but introduce a lot of bloat. If I was going to use a framework it would probably be Thematic, with Options_Tree plugin.
Although, ideally you want to be able to hook into individual pages and posts… This isn’t that difficult, you just need to study the wordpress API . Or download a plugin then pull it apart and write it into your wordpress theme.
