WordPress Theme Frameworks
A theme framework is a theme that is designed to be a flexible foundation that can serve as a parent theme for building child themes. The use of WordPress theme frameworks may ease theme development by reducing the volume of work which may be needed in creating a backbone for your theme (usually by using PHP and WordPress Template Tags).

Are you sure? We don’t accept GPL at Graphicriver. GPL has a legal stipulation that says that anything based on a GPL licensed item should be GPL (or for that matter containing GPL licensed assets). There’s even a debate going on (or so I heard at wordpress.tv) about whether or not selling themes is legal at all.I’ve seen it lately, but I had my own framework Btw, is it okay to sell themes based on WP frameworks?There are a plenty of thematic based themes in ThemeForest and the Gravy code is released under GPL Licence so, yes is ok.
ArikB: Gravy is licenced GPL , 960gs is licenced GPL , WordPress is Licenced GPL you cannot sell those projects of course, but you can sell your design (PSD, CSS and HTML ). This has been discussed, in fact Jeffrey Way talked about it a few threads ago.
C’mon dude you know that.
Meet Gravy a WordPress Framework from the author of Mimbo Pro and the TimThumb Script. I’ve buyed the Framework and is absolutely amazing, well organized.
- Homepage.psd and single-post.psd layouts
- Pre-cropped files for 125×125 ads, RSS icon, comments icon, search icon, theme screenshot, favicon and dropdown arrows
- A 12 -column grid overlay based on 960.gs
- Guides and layers that correspond precisely with the theme’s HTML /CSS
- Smart objects for repetitive elements like blog entries and “Reply” buttons
- Sample multi-level dropdown menu
- W3C Valid CSS and XHTML code
- IE7 , IE8, Firefox 3.5 and Safari 4 compatibility
- Includes functions for all WordPress 2.8+ features
- Custom archives template
- Custom author template
- Custom “More in this Category” sidebar code
- Styling for the WP125 ad plugin
- Dynamic SEO -friendly tags and meta tags
- Search term highlighting
- Styling for author comments, threaded comments and trackback/comments separation
- Animated, multi-level Superfish dropdown menus
- Localization strings and sample po/mo files
- A ‘Get Post Image’ script, ala Mimbo Pro
- The TimThumb image resizer script

Cons: Doesn’t have documentation ‘yet’ but as the author said, he’s working on it.
What dou you think?
i wonder if the redesign will still be in ruby on rails….100% Definately … Absolutely … Positively yes. Envato have a small team of Ruby on Rails developers in their Melbourne office, and all over the globe. Ruby on Rails is secure and works well, so there is absolutely no need to change to a different platform, it would be a few steps backwards in my opinion
You mean we shouldn’t have moved to .NET? Awww shit…
Hahahahaah LOL !! Cool!! .NET now
