Are you looking for a WordPress Theme design, but just can’t find the perfect “pre-built” theme out there? Or maybe you’re a designer or developer looking for a good foundation to use for the majority of your client base?
You’ve come to the right place. As I’m sure you already know, WordPress is just the software that helps store, organize and manage your website content in a database – and WordPress Themes give you the look or design that visitors see. Even though there is a huge market for free and premium themes, you can’t always find the perfect fit – especially if you’re developing a custom website.
But building a theme from scratch can be time-consuming and not-so-economical for most clients.
And that’s where theme frameworks come in. They do the heavy lifting of the theme so that you or the designer/developer can focus on features and design. It’s like buying the foundation and frame of a house that’s already got the rough electrical and plumbing done. But when you use a WordPress theme framework for developing a website, the framework has all the hooks, filters, grids, etc so that you can quickly apply your custom design elements or snippets of code to make the site look just right.
It’s a win all around. You get the well-written code that you need from the beginning, faster site development, flexibility to make modifications to your own site – all without compromising on the actual design that you are looking for.
Another thing that you might find useful: a WordPress theme framework generally means one of two things:
- It’s an internal theme framework developed by a specific theme seller or marketplace like Divi by Elegant Themes. All of Elegant Themes’ themes are built on the same solid foundation – so practically all of their functionality will be the same. Note – you may or may not be able to purchase a framework like this independently…it just depends on the particular company or developer.
- It’s an independent framework that anyone can use as their project foundation. For example, you can purchase a framework like Genesis by itself and build up your own design/theme. Or you can buy Genesis along with a theme and go from there.
All that said, frameworks are brilliant and incredibly useful for everyone.
