First of all I must say I am more a programmer than a designer, so my knowledge and capability for designing a “fancy” interface is not on par with a normal web designer.
I often come in situations like customers want me to finish their blog – or mini CMS ASAP. And their first preference would usually be WordPress. No offense, but I feel it is a bit hard for me to quickly craft a theme to exactly suit their demand.
I know I can purchase or just grab some themes from online but that would not always do.
Now that there are a couple of WordPress theme FRAMEWORKS out there, accroding to this official link, I wonder if any of you have experienced with any of those, and what do you feel about it?
Personally I just downloaded and tried one of them, which is called Thematic. Spent one night struggled to customize but unfortunately I was sort of lost in the maze of files…
Maybe I should have consulted to some books about WordPress theme development, but if you can share your experience with me that would be most appreciated. Many thanks in advance!
I have good experience working with Thesis.
Very easy to configure and has BIG A*s Save Button.
